We had a quiz on Atomic Theory, Atomic Structure, Average Atomic Mass, and Nuclear Decay on Tuesday, 10/3! 
Bellwork for Friday, 9/29
If your birthday element were to undergo a beta decay, what element would it become? 
Bellwork for Thursday, 9/28
What percent of an isotope remains after 5 half lives have elapsed? 
Bellwork for Wednesday, 9/27
Write an equation for the alpha decay of Uranium-238.
Write an equation for the beta decay of Dysprosium-165. 
Bellwork for Tuesday, 9/26
The sun gets its energy from the _____ of _____ into _____. 
Bellwork for Monday, 9/25
Given Carbon-12 with an atomic mass of 12.000 amu and an abundance of 98.89%, and Carbon-13 with an atomic mass of 13.003 amu and an abundance of 1.11%, what is the average atomic mass for Carbon?
This week we learned about atomic structure and isotopes. We performed a lab activity to learn how to calculate the average atomic mass.
As of this point in time, you should be able to identify the parts of atoms, know how to identify elements given the number and type of subatomic particles, calculate the charge of an atom, write the isotopic symbol for an atom, and calculate the average atomic mass when given the atomic masses and relative abundances of naturally occurring isotopes.
We had a test over Matter on Friday, 9/15/17!
On Friday 9/15, the review packet (with evidence of use) was due.
Also on Tuesday the "Atom Foldable". Link in sidebar to .ppt file.
Friday, 9/22 Bellwork:
What would be the isotopic symbol for an atom with three protons and four neutrons in its nucleus?
What is the charge of the subatomic particles found outside the nucleus?
Thursday, 9/21 Bellwork:
Draw a representation of the following atoms: Lithium-7, Helium-4, Hydrogen-2
Wednesday, 9/20 Bellwork:
- Where in/among the atom are the three subatomic particles located?
- Write an equation for mass number.
- What changes about an atom when we change the number of protons? When we change the number of neutrons? When we change the number of electrons?
Tuesday, 9/19 Bellwork:
For your Birthday Element find the:
- average atomic mass (consult periodic table)
- estimate a mass number
- provide the number of protons, neutrons, and electron of a neutral atom of your birthday element with your estimate mass number.
Monday, 9/18 Bellwork:
Take the digits of your birthday
(e.g., March 12th = 12) and look up the corresponding element by atomic number (e.g., 12 = Mg). This is your "birthdayelement". Write down all the info provided on periodic table.
Friday, 9/8, the following items were due:
