This coming Fall, the Honors College Freshman Research Symposium will be available to high school students throughout Montana for dual enrollment credit through live streaming.

The Freshman Research Symposium is designed to introduce motivated students to scholarly research. On two Saturdays this coming fall, September 26 and October 17, more than 40 top MSU researchers will present their work through TED-style talks to highly motivated college freshmen and high school students. Our objective is two-fold: first, to provide students with a glimpse into the research and creative work of faculty at MSU and secondly, to connect highly motivated students with outstanding MSU faculty early in their academic careers, even before starting college.

Students enrolled in the course can apply for research funding, which include several summer research internship grants for high school students. Dr. Logan Schultz, Assistant Dean of the Honors College, directs the symposium. Please direct any questions you might have to logan.schultz@montana.edu. Dr. Schultz has produced an Info Session screencast, that can be accessed through this link. He will also host a Q&A session on May 27th, 2020 at 3PM.

An application is required and will be due on June 19. Encourage your students to apply today!

The course will be graded based on attendance and a reflective essay.

May 15-20 - Friday-Wednesday

  1. Check-in with Batman!
  2. Home Science Labs
      • Pick up your "Home Science Labs" kit at the Senior High main office (see picture) right away.
        • The purpose of doing this is to have something hands-on and fun for science to finish out the year. They are super easy and super fun and you get to keep all of the stuff!! Yay!!!
      • For AP Chemistry, you DO NOT NEED TO TURN ANYTHING IN FOR THE HOME SCIENCE LABS! They are just a kit of fun things to remind you of your time in chemistry and activities to do when you get bored or lonely.
      • This is the last "thing" for AP Chemistry! So, I wish you all the best and I hope to see you at graduation! If not, stop by Senior High sometime and check-in! Or, send me an email to let me know how life is treating you. "You can be strange, but don't be a stranger!" (I think I just made that up!)

May 5 - Tuesday

    1. Check-in with Batman! Batman could use a hug. Batman has spent too much time in his Batcave, alone.
  1. 5/5 Emma & Noah Announcements
  2. **Please complete this right away** I have not received the updated list of students who are taking the AP Chemistry Exam this year. Please click HERE to let me know your status for the AP Exam (whether or not you are taking it).
    1. AP Exam Information
      • Those of you taking the exam, please read and complete the following:

          • Click here and complete the demo exam so you can see how the test will work this year.
          • Prior to exam day, you will need to decide if you are going to write out your answers on paper and take a picture to submit or if you are going to take a screenshot or if you are going to use a text editor and upload your answers. You will have a chance to practice this on the Demo Exam.
          • I HIGHLY recommend writing out your answers on a piece of paper and taking a picture with your phone or webcam to submit. This will require practice ahead of time.
          • **There is a timer on the screen for each question. Once the timer reaches zero you will NOT be able to submit your answer. I have sat through several AP webinars over the last few weeks and they keep stressing that students MUST submit before the timer reaches zero or they will receive a ZERO score for all parts of that question!

    1. 10 days until the AP Exam! Not taking the AP Exam? You still need to stay on top of things, there will be a final AP test (online and very abbreviated) for class - I will share more information about that soon. For now, let's just focus on reviewing and breathing. Don't forget to breathe. Breathing is good.
  2. It is a beautiful, drizzly, rainy morning so I've got some Deep Thoughts to use on my kids today:
    • "If a kid asks where rain comes from, I think a cute thing to tell him is "God is crying." And if he asks why God is crying, another cute thing to tell him is "Probably because of something you did."
        • Deep Thoughts: Inspiration for the Uninspired (1992), Berkley Books
  3. AP Chemistry 2 Chapter 3 - Thermodynamics

April 30 - Thursday

    1. NO SCHOOL TOMORROW!!! Get out and get some sunshine!
    2. Checking In
    • I need to let you how much I appreciate you taking the time to check in with Batman each day. It is a good reminder to me that you are out there, even though I don't get to see you every day. I also appreciate that so many of you have taken the time to add a comment and remind me that you have a life outside of this computer screen! I love reading them! The program records the time of day you fill out the form and it is really interesting to see what time of the day you are jumping into chemistry! I am surprised by who are the "morning glories" and who are the "night owls"! If you need anything at all (food, an air 'high-five', help with chemistry, anything!) let me know. And, stay safe!
    • Check-in with Batman!
    1. Office Hours
      • Where did your office hours go, Mr. Beals? When I started with the Zoom office hours not many teachers were using zoom so it was a good platform to see your faces and say hello! But, according to some of your classmates, as more and more teachers are using zoom it has taken up more and more of your time (I supposed this depends on which teachers you have). I don't want to put too much on your plate so I have left office hours open - which means I will gladly schedule a zoom call with you anytime - individually or as a group. Just let me know. I will have formal office hours in the coming weeks by class period (more on this later).
    2. Labs
      • You know how much I love labs! I think the most important part of this class is DOING science, not just learning about it. So...
      • I am working on a "Home Science Kit" with some equipment and simple, fun, labs that you can do at home!! Don't worry, everything you need will be in the kit. And, you get to keep all of the fun stuff as a memento of your time in chemistry (at school...and at home)! Oh, and there will be no formal lab write-ups (more info soon)!
      • Next week I will send out a form to find out if you want to pick up your "Home Science Kit" at Senior or if you want me to drop one off on your front step.
    3. AP APology (see what I did there?!)
      • I want to apologize that there has been so much work in AP Chemistry during the school closure. In Honors Chemistry and Chemistry, I have been able to slow down the pace and determine which topics are 'not essential' so I am able to take a lot off of those student's plates. But, with the AP Exam looming, we have a definite timeline and a defined set of topics we must cover before the exam date. Hang in there and bear with me. After the Exam, we will shift gears entirely and we will breathe...nice, slow, relaxing breaths...
  1. AP Chemistry 2 Chapter 2 - Chemical Equilibrium
    • Due before 11:59 pm Sunday, May 3.
    • Chapter 2 Quiz
      • Due before 11:59 pm Sunday, May 3.
      • After you've completed the quiz, take a screenshot (example screenshot) and place it in your online folder and title it "AP Chem2 Ch1 Quiz"
      • You will earn a completion grade for the quiz - not the grade on the quiz. Remember this is to help you review

April 29 - Wednesday

    1. Check-in with Batman!
    2. Carter asked for clarification about "titration" which was included in the Unit 4 Progress Check FRQ.
    • We were scheduled to do 2 titration labs starting the week that schools closed. The good news is that most titration involves acid/base reactions or equivalents. We will not be tested on acid/bases calculations (ex. calculating pKa/Ka/pH/etc), for this year's exam. However, we will be tested on things relating to acids and bases (which we've covered) and redox reaction (which we've covered)
    • However, titration is used to find equivalents or equilibriums for other types of reactions so the concept of what a titration actually is and how to use the data from one might show up on the exam. But, if it does it will most likely be related to calculating quantities using stoichiometry, a skill you are very familiar with.
    • I've done some searching and I think the best place to start is at the AP Chemistry YouTube that was set up specifically to help students during the school closure. The following video will start at the explanation for titration and how it is used: https://youtu.be/4sT27HrOiFY?t=1564
    1. Carter also asked about "net ionic equations". This is something we covered last year so it may be rusty in the memory. If you need a reminder or clarification, start here: https://youtu.be/eohvdlHGnTE?t=1180
    2. AP Chemistry YouTube
      • Overviews of each unit, made by College Board, are now available on YouTube. If you can find the time, I would highly encourage you to watch them before the exam because I am guessing that anything they cover in the videos could be fair game for the exam!
      • I've linked to the channel/videos in "AP Testing Information Updates" at the top of this page.
  1. AP Chemistry 2 Chapter 1 - Reaction Kinetics
    • Due before 11:59 pm today.
      • Access the AP Chemistry 2 Book (see "Chemistry Links")

April 27 - Monday

    1. Thank you:
      • I appreciate you. I appreciate that you are willing to put in so much effort to learn chemistry during these difficult times. If you look at the issues facing humanity today, it is people like you (the motivated, talented, hard-working, intelligent people) who will fix these problems other problems that will undoubtedly occur in the future. Without people like you, who will grow up to be independent, creative, thinkers-and-doers, the issues that face humanity will never be overcome. So, I thank you for being incredible young adults. In these darker times, the future looks bright - because of you.
    2. Office Hours: The School Board meets tonight to determine if schools will remain closed for the rest of the year or if they will re-open in some capacity. I will schedule office hours after we know their decision so all of us can talk about what AP will look like for the rest of the year.
    3. Check-in with Batman!
    4. I MADE A MISTAKE! It appears that many of you got things figured out, but I wrote that you needed to work on Unit 2 Multiple Choice and FRQ Progress Reports last week - but it should have said "Unit 3". I apologize for the error!
      • If you did not complete Unit 3 MC and FRQ Progress Reports, I've opened them back up so you can complete them.
      • I will post the Scoring Guide for Unit 3 FRQ tomorrow.

But, after looking through the ones you've turned in, I realized that this is the best way for me to determine how confident each of you is on every topic in a chapter. These TLSG's will help me determine how I can help each of you be successful and will help you identify your level of understanding. So, we will continue to turn them in and I ask that you continue to BE HONEST as you fill them out. Likewise, if you are "red" or "yellow" on a topic, make sure you review and study that topic!**
      • Quiz
        • Spend today reviewing and studying.

    • The Challenge? Make projectiles and see if you can beat me!
    1. You can get the Senior High Daily Announcements on YouTube now! Check it out!
    2. Study Buddy Day
    • FAQ:
      • What is "Study Buddy Day"? It is a special day! It is a day where you devote at least 45 minutes to studying AP Chemistry!
      • What about the "Buddy" part? Well, "buddy" rhymes with "study" and I thought it was boring to put "Study Day" as the heading!
      • Does the "buddy" part mean we can study with a real-life "buddy"? Yes and No. Yes, you are welcome to study with a buddy by setting up a facetime call or something similar. No, because you are not required to study with a buddy (but maybe a little time with another human being would be good for you even if it is just through a digital connection).
      • What does the "Study" part mean? Well, let's break this down:
        • We have an AP Exam coming up and an AP Chemistry Final that will require you to know A LOT of stuff about chemistry. Consistent and effective studying is the only way to ensure that your brain will hold onto all of this knowledge for the long-term.
        • Studying takes time - there is no way around that. Take the time to take the time (Whoa! That was profound! You can quote me on that one if you'd like...or not...its up to you)
      • Study what?
    1. Coming up...
