We have one full topic and one quarter topic left to cover. Since my students are amazing, we have maintained a good pace all year and do have some “wiggle room” built into our schedule.

I am going to include the topics and standards that we have not covered thus far. (Standards can be found in the table of contents of the Prentice Hall Book as well as in the Chemistry core curriculum for New York State) This is the last of the new material for the year. I will use the Prentice Hall Review book as our main resource since it does not depend on any outside source of power or the internet.
