Redox Reactions

The breakdown of your breakfast and plants photosynthesizing all relate to the simple movement of electrons. Learn about the complex manner of redox reactions, where electrons move from one compound to another, changing and propelling our world and our bodies.

Instructional Ideas

  • Preview video and script questions to ask throughout
  • Create a cheat sheet for learners, explaining the rules of redox reactions
  • Support video through further labs, discussions, examples, problems, and assignments that further teach redox reactions
Classroom Considerations

  • Requires a computer, access to the Internet, and projection device to use the resource
  • Video assumes learners understand how to balance chemical equations
  • Pupils should know the difference between monoatomic, diatomic, and polyatomic ions and can determine their charge
Pros

  • Shows a demonstration of redox reactions, which is great for visual (and all!) learners
  • Resource explains and balances redox reactions
Cons

  • Video moves quickly through complex concepts, so it will require additional support through further discussion, questions, labs, and analysis of redox reactions
