In this amino acids worksheet, learners answer nine questions about the functional groups of amino acids, about the nine essential amino acids and they draw Lewis structures for the amino acid alanine.
In this naming compounds with functional groups learning exercise, 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.
Learners role play a group of people trying to convince investors to invest on their particular compound. In this chemistry lesson, students research about different compounds formed by their assigned functional group. They create a PowerPoint presentation to share their findings.
Sal approaches the functional group OH. He gives details of the term alcohol, and clarifies the differences from drinking alcohol. Again, there is practice of naming molecules and functional group location.
These 37 slides start with definitions of six types of functional groups, their molecular structure, and multiple examples or each. During the rest of the presentation, organic chemistry learners are given an opportunity to practice identifying compounds based on molecular diagrams. This is an ideal way to begin the study of functional groups with your class.
Seven diagrams of molecules are given and pupils are expected to circle the functional groups. You could display this sheet for your class and work on it as a group. There is no need to print them out. You could also use the diagrams to discuss the molecular structure, naming of the functional groups, or electron distribution, and charge on the molecule.
A great review of the structure and function of carbon-based molecules important to life, especially with relevance to humans. The chemistry behind the combination of polymers and the breakdown of bonds is covered. Valuable content in this slideshow is the collection of diagrams of each functional group.
After giving basic details about the properties of carbon, some of the common functional groups and molecules are featured. There is some information about specific functions and impact on the human body. The diagrams are helpful and could be used in any individual lesson on this topic. This presentation would also be a great review starter.
Introduce your class to one of chemistry's functional groups, haloalkanes. A list of several functional groups is shown, but then viewers are taught to identify and name haloalkanes. Examples of these compounds are given and the problems associated with using chlorofluorocarbons are explained. This is an outstanding presentation except that chlorofluorocarbons is misspelled on the corresponding slides.
If you need a straightforward and comprehensive organic chemistry exam, check this one out. Chemistry pupils identify functional groups in molecule diagrams, draw a Lewis structure, fill in a table about molecular shape, predict boiling point and solubility, and more! There are 12 questions to address in all. Both a periodic table and list of characteristic infrared absorptions are provided for test takers.
In this substituted hydrocarbons worksheet, students learn how to name compounds using a table of organic functional groups and the rules for naming hydrocarbon compounds. They practice naming twenty substituted hydrocarbons.
Biodiversity begins at the molecular level. When biology pupils complete this worksheet, they will explore a variety of organic compounds that are necessary for life. Six short-answer questions and a chart of the functional groups are to be completed. You will find this most beneficial to add to your biology curriculum at the advanced high-school or college levels. 
For this organic chemistry worksheet, students solve 20 problems including isomer structure, functional groups, types of reactions and the polymers that make up the structures of organic molecules.
Though there are technically only 13 questions on this exam, they take up six pages and make a thorough assessment of organic chemistry principles. There are plenty of diagrams to label or complete. Emission spectra are displayed for interpretation. Topics evaluated include valence bond theory, functional groups, chair conformations, acid base reactions, molecular geometry, and IUPAC names. 
Written for an introductory organic and biochemistry course, this exam will challenge your class. They label functional groups and stereocenters on drawings of molecules, draw structures given the name, complete drawings of chemical reactions, and answer questions about the characteristics of organic compounds. There are 13 problems in all, and a periodic table is provided for reference.
In this organic molecules activity, students solve four problems. They draw Lewis structures, they identify functional groups in a molecule, they draw resonance structures and they provide details of bonding within a molecule.
This five-page exam was designed for a biochemistry and organic chemistry course. It covers the molecular geometry and properties of organic comounds. Test takers identify compounds, functional groups, and isomers. They draw Lewis structures and the products of chemical reactions. 
In this dysfunctional group worksheet, students determine which functional groups are present in a number of given cards. Students draw the 3 molecules from their cards that are functional onto a poster.
In this biochemistry worksheet, students complete a crossword puzzle with 36 questions. They identify different polymers and functional groups.
For this functional groups worksheet, students are given twenty molecules and they must write the functional group for each molecule by identifying it's structural components.
