Determination of Phosphorus Content in River Water

Divide your chemistry or environmental science class into two groups. Each group tests water samples from a river for the concentration of phosphorus using a different method. With chemists, you can use this activity as they learn to use a spectrophotometer. With environmental scientists, you can use it while studying water quality. Two separate student handouts are provided, along with detailed instructor notes.

As an online high school teacher, LP has helped me tremendously with extra resources! I have been able to use additional supplemental materials from here and students are able to gain more knowledge and a different perspective.
