Molecular Structure and Properties: Key Vocabulary and Concepts

Students reviewed the key vocabulary terms in the Lesson 34 PowerPoint and Lesson 35 PowerPoint.  They received the Lesson 35 Worksheet as a study guide, and we briefly discussed the ester synthesis reaction that occurs when a compound with a carboxylic acid reacts with a compound with an alcohol functional group.  Students should work through textbook questions 1, 2, 3, 5, and 6, with question 4 available as extra credit.

With the Unit 6 quiz scheduled for Thursday, students will have the next two days to finish their research reports, review the practice quiz, and to ask questions from Unit 6.

12/15/15 Update:

Students worked through the Chapter 6 practice exam and then we reviewed the questions.  Notes from the white board are pictured below:
