Conceptual Chemistry Final Exam Projects

Spring 2002 – Mrs. Whalen

Due: Friday, June 14, 2002

Select the most appealing from the attached list of possible projects and activities. Each project requires completion of a typed bibliography detailing references used to complete the project. Some projects require completion of a report or paper. Papers are to be a minimum of 2 pages, double spaced (12 point font, 1" margins), plus references. Under no circumstances are you to just copy or cut and paste information into your paper. If you must quote a reference, use the appropriate notation. Charts or graphs should be done in Excel.

You can use your textbook, the library, resources in the classroom, the internet, public documents, and professionals as references, but you must reference them in your bibliography. Follow the attached Bibliography Guidelines.

Some projects require completion of a display. A display is more than a poster with pictures and text copied off the internet. If the project requires photographs, I recommend developing pictures on CD’s or use a digital camera, so photos can be edited. Keep accurate notes on what you photographed or videotaped and include it in your documentation.
