Don't you wish you had the time to type up a study guide for your chemistry class? With this resource, there is no need! A chart comparing the properties of metals and non-metals tops the handout, followed by notes on the reactivity series. Finally, you will find an overview of fossil fuels. Use this as an outline for your lecture or to give a copy to junior chemists as notes or a study guide.
The University of the State of New York has designed a series of exams to be given to high schoolers. This chemistry exam is one of the most comprehensive and well-written that you will ever find. It consists of 84 questions in a variety of styles, including multiple-choice, short answer, problem solving, interpretation of charts and graphs. The content covers every topic within the typical general chemistry curriculum.
Opening with a set of notes, this resource defines the different types of radiation. Eight examples are then listed so that chemistry pros can practice naming radiation types. This compact, but comprehensive, handout will act as a valuable reference page for your class. Use it when introducing radioactivity.
Three questions, requiring short answers, show that chemistry learners understand the concepts behind balancing chemical equations. Nine equations leave the coefficients to be filled in, and eleven reactions are described for learners to write as balanced equations. This is a comprehensive activity that provides the necessary repetitive practice in balancing chemical equations. This may be useful for a general chemistry course as well as the intended advanced placement course.
This is a review of how advanced chemistry learners handle thermodynamics equations and calculations. Charts and graphs are included for them to read in addition to solving related problems. You will find this resource useful as a review homework or preparation for a unit quiz.
Teach your chemistry charges how to calculate amounts of metals produced during an electroplating process. This invaluable handout details the electroplating process and then provides three examples that you can work through with your class. Use it when you introduce the concepts of electroplating for the first time.
Drawings of two electrochemical cells are provided as visual examples for chemistry novices to label. They also solve a variety of problems for each, such as writing balanced equations and calculating standard cell potential. This resource serves as a meaningful review of electrochemistry concepts. You could use it as homework in preparation for a quiz, or as an assessment tool.
After taking in background information on teeth, marble, eggshell, and fluoride, chemistry aces design an experiment. Their goal is to demonstrate whether or not fluoride has a similar effect on marble or eggshell as it does on tooth enamel. Although there are chemical reactions involved in the activity, the intent is to provide practice designing and revising a scientific inquiry. What makes this lesson stand out is the unique topic and the well-written instructor notes and student directions.
Two laboratory problems are put forth for chemistry students. They are to plan and carry out an experiment that will answer each of the questions. The first asks them to investigate a relationship between the surface area of a potato and decomposition rate of hydrogen peroxide. The second requires that they determine the equilibrium constant for a reaction involving urea. All of these National Chemistry Olympiad exams are tremendous resources to use in your classroom as lab investigations or practical exams.
This 60-question comprehensive exam was designed to determine who would go on to compete in the 2000 US National Chemistry Olympiad. Hopefuls answer multiple choice questions regarding all chemistry topics taught in the first year general chemistry curriculum with a focus on laboratory experience. You can use this as a final exam for your chemistry class. An answer key is attached.
The National Chemistry Olympiad exams are comprehensive tests covering an entire year of chemistry concepts. You can use them as practice for competing in the challenge, or simply as a review, or as an actual final exam for your general chemistry class. This particular part of the three-part exam consists of 60 multiple choice questions. Read through it before assigning to make sure every question is relevant to your curriculum. As a bonus, you will find an answer key attached.
Sixty multiple-choice questions test on a variety of first year chemistry subjects. In order to succeed, exam takers must be competent with properties of elements, stoichiometry problems, gas laws, bond dissociation, and types of reactions. A page is provided that displays a comprehensive chart of abbreviations and symbols, constants, and the periodic table. Also, an answer key is provided for teachers. This is a top-notch exam!
As to be expected from the American Chemical Society Olympiad Examinations Task Force, this 60-question test tops the charts in terms of excellence. It consists entirely of multiple choice questions designed to assess a year's worth of chemistry curriculum. Topics include, but are not limited to pH, molecular geometry, bonding, behavior of gases and solutions, phase changes, and chemical reactions. Use this as a final exam or as a practice for those who want to enter the nation-wide challenge.
