Mr. Hauptman's Video Project
Since I completed "100 Ways to Pass the Chemistry
Regents!" there have been 5 more Chemistry Regents exams administered:
To help you better understand certain chemistry
well as for you to see the repetitive nature of the exam, you will be tasked
with creating your own video explaining
how to answer a particular concept that has been assigned to you (see list
All of the assigned concepts have showed up at
least 3 times
on the last 5 exams. Please follow
instructions below on how to complete this video project.
June 5th, 2015 2 or 5 points
Find ALL of the
questions (there will be at least 3 but up to 5)from the above 5 exams that
pertain to your assigned concept and copy and paste them onto a word document/power
point/keynote slide complete with the month and year of the exam from which the
questions come. Print out the completed
sheet/slide and then submit.
Sheet submitted with the correct # of questions,
the exam month & year from which they came 5
Sheet submitted with incorrect # of questions,
missing exam month(s) and/or year(s) 2 points
Late Penalty = 2 points
June 12th, 2015 up to 15 points
Create a video explaining how to answer all of
that you found that pertain to your assigned concept. The video should be anywhere from 1 to 3
minutes, which should be as long as it needs to be to get your explanations
The video could be a capture of your screen or a recording
using any kind of video camera.
At the end of your video, someone having no knowledge
chemistry should be able to answer the questions correctly by themselves.
The video should be easy to follow (not too fast, not
slow), easy to see (not dark or distorted), easy to hear (not muffled or
If your concept requires the use of a reference
table, then you need to include that in your video.
The answers should be clearly revealed at some point
Video length is 1 to 3 minutes
up to 3 points
Audio / Video Quality is clear, understandable,
Submit a typed
video script that matches the words you used in the video
Video should clearly and correctly explain the
all questions covered
Late Penalty = 3 points
Way # 1
Way #1 -
1. Way #1 on how to
pass the chemistry regents.
2. Aside from Safety
First, the following 2
questions you are about to see should be easy, free points for you. To ensure
you get those points, make sure
to read the questions carefully and, use common sense.
3. The first question comes from
the June, 2011 chemistry regents.
4. Here, they are asking for a safety procedure
to be done AFTER completing
5. You might be
asking, "What lab activity?" Well, here is the rest of the information that goes with this
question, but it really doesn't matter what the activity was.
6. Good, common
sense, safety procedures following
any chemistry lab should include:
up the materials and putting things away,
disposing of chemicals properly, or perhaps the easiest and most common
answer, washing your hands.
7. What would you write for this
question from the January, 2011 chemistry regents?
8. This time, you
can't mention something that was already stated in the passage so let us
show you the passage.
9. If you wrote "wear
goggles" or "wear an apron", the person grading your test
has been instructed not to give
you credit because those safety precautions were mentioned in the passage.
10. Acceptable responses include but
are not limited to: "wear gloves" or "avoid spills".
11. So, way # 1 on
how to pass the chemistry regents - use common sense when performing lab
activities and read the questions carefully.
