Day 19- Themes and Narratives (1/9/17)

LT: I can determine the theme and argument for my podcast by comparing and contrasting drug properties.


Day 18 (1/6/17)

Calculating Gram-Formula-Mass:
  • Step 1
    • Identify the atomic mass of each atom (H = 1 and 0 = 16)
  • Step 2
    • Multiply the atomic mass of an atom by the number of atoms present (1 x 2; 16 x 1)
  • Step 3
    • Add together all of the masses (2 + 16)

Day 17- Counting Molecules (1/5/17)

LT: I can design a method for analyzing a large number of small objects.

Personal Dictionary:
  • Mole: 
    • 6.022 x 10^23 = 602 sextillion
    • A set number that can measure how many particles (atoms or molecules)
    • It's used to compare the masses of different substances.
  • Gram Formula Mass: (Molar Mass)(gram/mole)
    • The mass of a mole of a particular substance. Different for each substance.
    • Given by atomic mass. 1 gram of Hydrogen = 1 mole

Day 16- Lethal Dose (1/3/17)

posted Jan 3, 2017, 10:23 AM by Brooke Winter-DiGirolamo

LT: I can compare the lethal dose, effective dose, and molecular properties of different and illegal drugs. 

Personal Dictionary:
  • Conversion Factors: How to calculate correct dose
    • ED50: Median Effective Dose- the dose that is effective for 50% of patients (mg/kg)
    • LD50: Lethal Dose- the dose that is fatal in 50% of test subjects (mg/kg)
THM: Lethal Dose
  • The lower the lethal dose, the less it takes to kill you- so it's more dangerous.
    • LD50 for fentanyl: 0.04 mg/kg = for every 1 kilogram of body weight, 0.04 mg would be lethal. 
    • 0.04mg/kg * 65kg = 2.6 mg would be the lethal dose for the average adult.

Day 14 - Analyzing the Narrative (12/22/16)

posted Dec 23, 2016, 9:38 AM by Brooke Winter-DiGirolamo

LT: I can analyze a podcast narrative to determine its message and its components. 


Day 13 - Intermolecular Forces (12/20/16)

posted Dec 20, 2016, 9:38 AM by Brooke Winter-DiGirolamo   [ updated Dec 20, 2016, 10:30 AM ]

LT: I can explain how different intermolecular forces influence how medicines are absorbed into the body.

Personal Dictionary:
  • Polar Molecules: Have Charges! Dissolve in Blood
    • Electrons are unequally spread- one atom pulls more than the other.
    • Asymmetrical- not even.
  • Non-Polar Molecules: No Charges! Dissolve in Fat Cells
    • Electrons are equally spread out- Efraim is pulled equally by Van and Haroon.
    • Symmetrical- all sides look the same.
  • Intermolecular Forces
    • Attraction between molecules.
      • Water- Has a very strong attraction, more polar, hydrogen bonding (O - H)
      • Hexane- Has a very weak attraction, non-polar bonds (C - H, C - C) London Dispersion
      • Aspirin- Both polar and non-polar (O-H, C-H, C-O)
      • Heroin- Both polar and non-polar (C-O, C-H), highest boiling point, hardest to separate - stays in the body a long time. 


Day 12 - (12/19/16)

Day 11 (12/16/16)

posted Dec 16, 2016, 9:54 AM by Brooke Winter-DiGirolamo   [ updated Dec 16, 2016, 10:15 AM ]

LT: I can explain how forces within and between a bond in an atom 

Personal Dictionary:
  • Dissolve:
    • When the molecules form different substances separate from each other and mix in with other molecules.
  • Like Dissolves Like:
    • Non-attractive molecules dissolve in other non-attractive molecules.
    • Attractive molecules dissolves in other attractive molecules.  
  • Polar Covalent Bond:
    • One atom is stronger than the other.
    • The stronger atom "pulls" more on the electrons in the bond.
    • One side has a partial negative charge and one has a partial positive charge.
