In this organic chemistry review worksheet, students complete 50 multiple choice questions on naming and identifying organic compounds.
The first two pages of this resource may not be useful as they contain a narrative as to how someone can improve their grade on an organic chemistry exam. The final page, however, contains four sample MCAT exam questions. You could use this page as a pop quiz for your emerging organic chemists, or simply distribute it as practice for the MCAT. Problems address isomer structure, carbocation, reactivity, and more. 
Framed as an organic chemistry practice test, this resource could be used for a variety of purposes. Composed of 15 questions about organic compounds such as isomers, alkynes, alkenes and amines, and other topics related to organic chemistry, this could be used as a test, a review, an in-class activity, or a homework assignment. Answers are provided.
Dr. Scott Allen walks viewers through a complete recrystallization in this high-quality presentation. Show this prior to having your class perform this same technique in your organic chemistry laboratory.
In this chemistry worksheet, students are offered a variety of assistance to help them be successful in organic chemistry. They will have access to the library, missed class notes and computer interactive programs to help them with chemical equations. There are many other resources. 
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 lesson 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.
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.
A comprehensive practice exam, this resource covers many areas of chemistry. The test includes 71 multiple choice questions on topics such as problem solving, chemical equations, chemical formulas, thermodynamics, acids and bases, and organic chemistry. Take a look to see what else this practice exam includes! While this titled as a practice exam, it could be used as an actual exam. Answers are provided.
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. 
In this organic chemistry review instructional activity, 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.
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.
For this organic chemistry of alkenes worksheet, learners name and write the chemical formulas for 12 alkenes and then complete 3 short answer questions about the saturation of alkene compounds.
In this organic chemistry of alkynes worksheet, students write products for reactions in 9 equation problems. They show the synthesis steps for 3 reactions and write the names for 3 compounds.
In this organic chemistry of alkynes worksheet, students write the reactions needed to convert a carbon compound to a different carbon compound in 15 questions.
In this organic reactions worksheet, students are given descriptions of the seven types of reaction of organic compounds. They then answer six questions about these reactions.
In this naming hydrocarbons worksheet, students are given a table of the prefixes used for naming hydrocarbons based on the number of carbon atoms and their location. They then practice naming ten hydrocarbon compounds using the rules of naming and the chart of prefixes.
In this organic chemistry worksheet, students compare inorganic and organic compounds. They write structural and molecular formulas for given molecules.
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.
In this organic chemistry worksheet, learners determine the relationships between compounds. Students use Newman Projections to draw stable conformations for compounds. This worksheet has 6 problems to solve.
Now that young chemists have learned how to name aliphatics and alkanes, they begin to understand the structure and shape of the resulting molecules. Chemguy uses models of molecules in this fourth of 16 organic chemistry videos. The best use of these videos is to assign them to chemistry learners who might have missed your in-class lesson on the topic.
