Instructional Ideas

  • Assign the problems as homework and provide the video as a resource for those who need extra instruction
Classroom Considerations

  • Consider breaking the video into smaller segments to retain pupils' attention
  • Learners should have a solid understanding of moles conversion and molarity
Pros

  • Uses the ICE box method for organizing information, allowing learners to see the similarities in each question
Cons

  • Some steps of each problem are left to the viewer to complete; if pupils do not know how to complete these steps, the video is not helpful
