Review for Midterm

Postby Simran Bains 2I » Mon Oct 26, 2020 11:24 pm

I just had a quick question that came up when I was reviewing for the midterm. I was going over the fundamentals and I was wondering if we would have to know the formula for a molecule just based on the name. For example, for F3, it says to write the formula for nitric acid. Do we need to know this for the midterm?

Yea because you were expected to have already learned most of the strong bases, strong acids and the polyatomic ions. I personally think that if you know those your golden for the midterm (although I haven't really taken it yet)....I could be wrong about this.

Do you know what section we could learn about the strong bases, strong acids and the polyatomic ions?

I always find Khan Academy helpful especially when needing to review more basic concepts such as strong acids and bases. I also attended a Step-Up Session last week that was soooo helpful! Hope this helps!

I have heard that the formulas will be provided so I do not think you need to know them based on names. However, it is good practice to know because many of the practice problems in the outlines tend to use names a lot.

I believe we would be required to know basic molecular compounds.

Regarding the midterm, can I use a graphing calculator or does it need to be scientific? I can't remember if Lavelle told us this info already or not.

I believe you can use a graphing calculator. If you have a TI-84 or TI-89 you should be fine.

I think for some molecules it'll help you a lot to name them, but I think for this course all the formulas and names will be given to you!

I have heard that the scores will be released this Thursday, but I do not know if we will be able to see our responses for the midterm.
