In this isomer instructional activity, students use molecular model kits to build isomers. Students work in groups and draw and name the isomers they build. They answer 9 questions about both geometric and structural isomers.
Isomers and Polymers
Students create models of structural isomers, geometric isomers, and polymers. In this chemistry lesson plan, students are given definitions and molecular model kits to create a variety of different isomers and polymers.
Stereoisomers, Enantiomers, Diastereomers, Constituational Isomers And meso Compounds
Sal works through a list of examples that demonstrate and review the different types of compound classification.
WS 10.3 Isomers
In this isomer worksheet, students draw as many different isomers for thirty given molecules and indicate how many isomers are possible.
In this isomers activity, students define isomers and then draw the different isomers for the given chemical formulas. This activity has 30 problems to solve.
In this isomer worksheet, high schoolers learn about the structures of isomers and then they draw the isomers for six organic compounds.
WS 10.8 Geometric Isomers
In this geometric isomers activity, students are given five molecules and they write the cis and trans isomers for each. They then name four bow-tie structures and identify if they are cis or trans.
For this isomers worksheet, students write and label the cis-trans isomer for the given compounds. Students name the compounds shown in the bow-tie structures. This worksheet has 2 problems to solve.
Organic Chemistry Problem Set Exam 1
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.
Chemistry 116 Exam 1, Spring 2009
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.
Geometric Isomerism (Different Geometries)
Here is an interactive presentation on molecular geometry if you have materials for building molecule models along the way. Isomerism is introduced by means of a graphic organizer. Viewers then imitate two molecule models and learn that though they have the same chemical makeup, the structures are not transposable. A system for naming isomers is also introduced. This is a valuable teaching tool to add to your chemistry curriculum.
Organic Chemistry Review
In this organic chemistry review worksheet, students 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.
In this conformational analysis worksheet, students are given organic molecules and they draw Newman projections, Haworth projections and sawhorse projections. They also draw cis and trans isomers for molecules.
In 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.
In this organic molecules instructional activity, students solve twelve problems. They identify functional groups of organic molecules, they draw isomers, and they give structural and molecular formulas for compounds.
WS 10.12 Review
In this organic molecules worksheet, students draw molecules given their names, they draw line isomers for a given compound, they predict products of reactions, they write equations for hydration reactions and they write chemical equations.
WS 10.5 Organic Compounds
In this organic compounds worksheet, students write the structural formulas for four compounds, they draw isomers for given molecules and they draw line formulas for given cycloalkanes and haloalkanes.
In this compounds learning exercise, students write the structural formula for a given compound. Students draw all line isomers for a given compound. Students name the compounds from their structural formula. This learning exercise has 8 problems to solve.
Students study carbon molecules and understand their many different shaped structures. In this chemistry lesson plan students analyze photos taken of their models.
In this alkane reactions worksheet, students define combustion and write the balanced equations for the combustion reactions. Students write the structural formulas of the products including all possible isomers and their percent formation. This worksheet has 3 problems to solve.
