In this chemistry in action worksheet, students read about sulphuric acid, the use of metals, the production of titanium and the detection of chemical elements and compounds. Students are given 8 statements about what they should know about each of these topics such as what is the process in making sulphuric acid, how is steel produced and how are metals extracted from the earth.
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 instructional activity stand out is the unique topic and the well-written instructor notes and student directions.
Two versions of this handout are provided, the second with more detailed information on the same topics. Chemistry aces survey chemical reactions, heat energy transferred, and the action of enzymes by reading this resource. You can either give it to learners as a study guide, or keep it for your own use as a lecture guide. Either way, you will find it to be organized and applicable for a general chemistry course.
Only eight problems are on this competitive national chemistry exam. It required the balancing of chemical equations, solving stoichiometry questions, and more. This is part two of three of the national exam. Also available is a local pre-competition exam. All of these resources are well-written and neatly formatted tests that you can use in your general chemistry curriculum or as preparation practice for the National Chemistry Olympiad.
Here is a thorough lesson on safety in the chemistry lab. Chemists review a detailed list of safety rules, draw the layout of the laboratory area to include emergency equipment, identify hazard warnings, and consult the MSDS in order to address a hypothetical chemical accident. Instructor's notes and a student lab sheet are provided in this well-written and vital lesson plan.
Support your electrochemistry lesson with this polished presentation! Chemistry apprentices are introduced to redox reactions, oxidation numbers, and balancing equations. They view photos and diagrams that will solidify their understanding of voltaic cells, electromagnetic force, and batteries. There is enough detailed material here to support several lectures on topic.
This lab activity is geared toward experienced chemistry learners, in particular, those who are familiar with organic chemistry. They will create a synthetic elastomer and then make observations and measurements of its different properties. Place this into your curriculum when teaching about polymers.
Advanced chemistry learners will be well-informed on the process of electrolysis by surveying this set of slides. Challenge the brightest minds with definitions, diagrams, practice problems, and flow charts that explain the concepts behind the process. The last section of the presentation zooms in on the industrial applications, showing learners that electrolysis is of practical use. Add this to your repertoire of resources.
General chemistry class members engage in a mini-unit on mole conversions. Through nine lab activites with varying degrees of difficulty, they practice measuring mass and volume, molar calculations, and stoichiometry. Terrific teacher notes give tips for mentoring minors through the lessons. Suggestions are made for options, community connections, and more. This is a comprehensive resource complete with lab sheets.
This in-depth organic chemistry lab walks learners through an investigation of the effect of initiator concentration on the resulting molecular weight of polystyrene. It is important that you use this activity with experienced chemistry learners as they will synthesize polystyrene several times and calculate efflux time and viscosity. Ideally you would use this when teaching your class about polymerization.
This organic chemistry lab activity is appropriate for teaching polymerization, percent yield, melting point, or the types and uses of polymer materials. Chemistry pupils imagine that they are working for a company to develop a special polymer and then work in the lab to synthesize nylon. The teacher page offers very little instruction, but since the student lab handout is thorough, it provides enough for you to carry this lesson out in your advanced or organic chemistry class.
High schoolers examine the reasons why metal corrodes in regard to metal artifacts. In groups, they discover the affects of salt water on metal and compare the type of corrosion found on iron. They also research the types of metal preservation techniques to end the lesson plan.
