Beyond using ethers as the example of an aprotic solvent (as in most of the previous videos), Sal describes the molecule diethylether with its IUPAC name and goes into more detail about its properties. This video does assume your class will know the definition of ethers. Sal does not talk about the reasoning behind its category.
An informative video focuses on the categories of ethers and specifically defines the cyclic subset of ethers. Sal looks at epoxides and explains why they are much more reactive than the generally stable ethers.
Introduce your chemistry novices to the oxygen-containing compounds. Viewers of this presentation will learn how to identify and name alcohols, phenols, thiols, and ethers. They will also learn that combustion and dehydration are reactions of alcohols. The diagrams of molecules in these compounds are clear and the overall appearance is bold and bright. Together these qualities make the PowerPoint both educational and pleasing to the eye.
In this alcohol and ethers worksheet, students complete 24 reactions of alcohols and ethers by writing the structural formulas for the products. If the reaction does not occur, students write N.R. Students also name 7 alcohols and ethers.
Twelve pages of text tells viewers about the physical properties and naming procedures for alcohols and ethers. A page is also dedicated to briefly describing phenols. This straightforward chemistry presentation comes to you as a PDF file. Use it as a note-taking guide for your charges when lecturing on these compounds.
In this chemistry worksheet, students complete 3 charts which categorize the properties of ethers and ketones, and their effects on structural formulas.
Identifying characteristics of alcohols and their physical properties are reviewed in bullet-point fashion on the first two slides. The same material follows, but for ethers. Finally, the structure and naming of carboxylic acids and their derivatives wrap up the presentation. Because the topics aren't typically taught at the same time, this PowerPoint does not flow well. You may want to use of the slides by group in individual organic chemistry lectures.
In this chemistry worksheet, students name compounds, complete chemical reactions and name families of molecules formed in reactions of alcohols, phenols, ethers and thiols.
These words are tough! Very advanced English language learners or native speakers will still be befuddled by some of these vocabulary words. For each of the six sentences provided, learners must choose the correct word to complete the sentence. Example words include quiescent, limpid, ethereal, and propitiations.  
Every heard of Letheon? According to Wikipedia, Letheon was the name William T.G.Morton gave to ether so that he could patent the substance. Morton’s attempts are the subject of the passage used in this comprehension quiz. To correctly answer the four prompts, readers must engage in close reading and access the provided links to resource materials.
Make a splash with this fluid dynamics simulator! Physics fanatics can adjust water jets and various obstacles to move free-flowing objects around the screen. It's a captivating virtual visualization of current flow!
For this chemistry worksheet, students identify which has the highest boiling point, as well as the lowest. Then they identify which compound is least soluble in water and why. Students also classify each of the compounds listed on the sheet.
Students observe examples of physical changes that can take place between the three states of matter and develop common sense and intuition in distinguishing between chemical and physical changes. They observe diagrams on the board from which they identify the one that is not a physical change and explain the difference between a physical and chemical change.
In this naming compounds with functional groups worksheet, students read about using the IUPAC rules for naming these compounds and they draw structures for 3 -carbon, 2-carbon and 4-carbon molecules and give the names for each.
In this chemistry worksheet, students determine the order of reactivity toward displacement in each of the series listed. Then they respond to several multiple choice questions as they relate to compounds and solutions. Students also identify various products from each of the sequence of reactions listed.
Students study how a mass spectrometer works by analyzing isotopic abundance from the mass spectrum of an element. They identify a compound from a mass spectra.
In this organic chemistry review worksheet, learners answer 10 questions about different organic molecules. They draw structures, they name structures, they draw polymers, they identify the type of isomer given molecules are and they identify functional groups.
Each slide here details the different ways that an alcohol can be oxidized. Diagrams of different structures of molecules are shown & your class should be able to identify how they would change to an aldehyde or a ketone. Some interesting facts are given about the real-life effects of alcohol in the body and the resulting effects of aldehydes and ketones. Some questions are included, asking learners to figure the structure of the molecule formulas given, and how they would be changed.
In this alternative energy worksheet, 6th graders read and study the varying types of fuel.  Students read examples and ways that alternative fuel can be used.
Young scholars read and analyze Henry Wadsworth Longfellow's poem, "Haunted Houses." They define key vocabulary terms, discuss the poem's technical aspects, and create an original poem about a haunted house or a haunted place.
