I love this tree.

This tree is a giant Sequoia. It's 247 feet tall. It's called 'The President.' It's also 3200 years old.

Acids & Bases, our new section/unit is about Acids and Bases.

They are pretty cool. It's not terribly complicated compared to some of the things you've done.

In this unit...this handout (all 31 pages) is your guide [please DO NOT print this out].

To begin with the section, your first homework assignment is answering the 8 questions on page 6 and 7.

Also, be sure to test your two household items and bring the results to class.

Okay, I'm not trying to sell you anything. Just some advice. I used to use flash drives. And when I needed something I'd use a CD. Copy, Paste, Copy Paste. It got old.

These days I store nearly everything on Dropbox. It's 2 GB of free online storage. Now I write something and store it there. I can access it with any computer that has internet. When I change it, it changes the file. It's really excellent. If you sign up using my link you get an extra 250 MB. It's a good deal. Try it. You'll love it.
