Opening with a set of notes, this resource defines the different types of radiation. Eight examples are then listed so that chemistry pros can practice naming radiation types. This compact, but comprehensive, handout will act as a valuable reference page for your class. Use it when introducing radioactivity.
This convenient handout will save you and your chemistry aces time. You will not need to prepare notes, and they will not need to consult their texts for future reference. Detailed notes on radioactive decay are provided and learners are taught how to read related graphs and calculate mass over time. Three examples are supplied to complete together in class.
A smooth sequence of slides introduces biology learners to chemistry concepts that are vital to understanding life processes. It also can serve as an outstanding overview of introductory organic chemistry principles. From the atom, to elements, to special properties of water, to the organic macromolecules, all bases are covered.
In this half-life of radioactive elements worksheet, students use 32 pennies to simulate radioactive decay. The heads up side represent a radioactive isotope and the tails-up represents a non-radioactive element. Students simulate 6 rounds of decay by following the directions. They make a graph of the half lives of the radioactive pennies and conclude by answer 5 questions about the decay process.
Review the 5 branches of chemistry and related terms with this worksheet. The focus of these activities is on terms and definitions. Learners answer questions about the study of chemistry, reasons to study chemistry, and pure and applied chemistry. Use this as a check or understanding or homework assignment.
