"Chemistry- The first student and I went over how to draw Lewis dot structures as well as calculating formal charges. The second student and I corrected her Geometry test."
"We discussed her last test over the gas laws, which went well. We then began discussing electron orbital diagrams and the configurations of electrons in an atom. After determining the orbital diagrams for several elements, we went into how to deal with ions (elements that have gained or lost electrons) and practiced diagramming those. From these, we were able to see why some elements readily combine with others ionically and others don't (especially the noble gasses who have a stable or full electron orbital). As we were doing these, we noticed that some of the diagrams built on diagrams of the noble gasses, so I taught the student how we can use that as an abbreviation, especially for some of the elements with higher atomic number. She is doing very well diagramming electron orbitals and has a great understanding of what the representation means for the level of Chemistry she is taking. *gases"
"Worked on naming and drawing organic chemistry molecules. Also looked at bond angles and valence electron structures."
