Unit 3 Review Podcast

In this post I have provided both an audio and written version of the review for the unit 3 test. The podcast provides information on what you should understand in order to be successful on the test. Please review any of the resources found here, and check your understanding by reviewing the podcast found below.


For those students who would prefer to look at a list, here is a list of topics:

  • States of matter
  • Physical vs. chemical properties
  • Intensive vs. extensive physical properties
  • Law of conservation of mass
  • Heterogenous vs. homogenous mixtures
  • Separating mixtures
  • Elements vs. compounds
  • Law of Definite Proportions
  • Law of Multiple Proportions

I still highly suggest you listen to the podcast and use the list as a way to check off topics you have a strong understanding of. As mentioned above, additional resources are available on the unit 3 page.

At the end of the podcast, I offer you one of my own test taking tips. I have found an additional “Top 10 Test-Taking Tips” that can be valuable information for you.

  1. Have a positive attitude
  2. Make a plan
  3. Don’t wait till the night before
  4. Be prepared the morning of the test
  5. Understand how the test works
  6. Manage your time
  7. If your stuck, circle it and move on
  8. MC – process of elimination
  9. Make sure your writing is legible or bubbles are filled in completely
  10. Review questions!

You can find the full article here, along with additional resources about being successful on tests.


  • 25 questions
  • Each question is worth 2 points
  • You will have the whole class period to take the test

*Test details have also been covered in class and are listed in the class syllabus.

If you missed any questions, you will have the opportunity to rework them. This class is about mastering chemistry, therefore you will have the opportunity to submit a new answer and earn half the point back by providing either new work or writing an explanation.

Please feel free to email me with any questions.
