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.
Students investigate the corrosion of different materials in the lab. For this chemistry lesson, students construct a bridge considering different bridge designs. At the end of the lesson, they play the role of scientists and engineers and plan the construction of three new bridges.
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 instructional 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.
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.
