WELCOME to Chemistry 11 Online!!!!
Welcome To CHEM 11 online and do at home! This course, as all summer courses are, is a fast paced course in which you will find interesting and applicable, at least I hope so! :)
This course emphasizes the Chemistry of Every Day Life and most students are surprised at how much they enjoyed this chemistry course
Class begins on May 22 , and you will not be able to access the class until then. But it is IMPERATIVE that you get all the information that I will soon provide on this page and then LOG ON TO THE SHASTA ONLINE (Canvas) CLASS ON May 22 !!! You have things that you need to complete.
Get the Syllabus and READ this first!!! An internet course is more difficult for many students because it depends solely on self discipline. You must be able to follow written directions exactly much like following a cookbook's recipe. Here is the summer 2018 syllabus.
You will have to purchase a number of everyday consumer goods from general merchandise stores like Target or Walmart, from grocery stores and a few things from Amazon. Many of the items you may very well have already. If you would have to purchase all of the items, the cost will less than $100. You do not need to purchase a text, the lab manual is online in Canvas.
Here for a list of items that you will need to purchase.
You will also need to sign a release of liability form. The most "dangerous" materials that you will need will be nail polish remover, borax, washing soda, vinegar and ammonia. You will have to do "dangerous" activities such as using a blender/food process, boil water and use a 450 degree Fahrenheit oven.
The entire course is on the internet. Unless unusual situations occur, there is no face to face component to the course.
This version of this course will be delivered over the internet using a program called Canvas. You also must expect to spend the same amount of time on this course to what you would have spent on the face to face version of this course. You should log onto this course everyday, check the course calendar, and make sure all of your work is up to date. You should expect to spend at least nine hours per week on this course. Furthermore you must have sufficient self-discipline to set and adhere to your own and to the course’s timelines. The internet version of this course is equal to or more rigorous than the face to face version. DO NOT FALL BEHIND!! I will do everything I can to help you. Always remember NO FREAKING OUT!! Freaking out is not allowed in my courses. You just need to ask me for help.
Learning styles: If your main learning style is audio/listening, an internet course is probably not for you unless you read the notes and text and record that on your smart phone and then listen. Go to http://www.vark-learn.com to take a short learning style questionnaire to find you primary learning style(s).
