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

#### Day 18 (1/6/17)

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

 LT: I can design a method for analyzing a large number of small objects.Personal Dictionary:Mole: 6.022 x 10^23 = 602 sextillionA 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 doseED50: 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 DoseThe 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 BloodElectrons are unequally spread- one atom pulls more than the other.Asymmetrical- not even.Non-Polar Molecules: No Charges! Dissolve in Fat CellsElectrons are equally spread out- Efraim is pulled equally by Van and Haroon.Symmetrical- all sides look the same.Intermolecular ForcesAttraction 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 DispersionAspirin- 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 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.
