T.G.I.F Quiz Schedule

Each Friday, we will start class with a brief quiz that is designed to help you speak the language of chemistry. To be fluent in this language, you must know the symbols for certain elements and ions "in your sleep". I have picked a minimal "must know" list for us to learn for this course.

Since the purpose is to learn these symbols in your permanent memory, each quiz will be comprehensive. In other words, the material covered in all of the prior quizzes will be included along with new material.

Quiz Date / Material included

Master List of Required Knowledge

The symbols for the following elements must be learned so that if you are given a symbol, you can write the name of the element or if you are given the name, you can write the symbol.

The list of atomic numbers for the elements you must learn are #1-38,40,42,47-57,74,78-89,92,94,95
