This animated PowerPoint teaches students about the process and theory of titration in the laboratory.
Firstly, the lesson explores neutralization and the use of an indicator such as phenolphthalein to show when neutralization has occurred. Secondly, the lesson details how monoprotic acids vs. diprotic acids would have different neutralization points based on the amount of hydrogen ions. The same point is made for monohydroxy bases vs. dihydroxy bases.
Then the classic titration equation MaVa=MbVb is examined and put to use.
Lastly, a titration setup is viewed and discussed, all on the PowerPoint! This is a great lesson to introduce a titration lab.
Most of my chemistry lessons are 8 slide PowerPoints. I print the PowerPoints each day (4 slides per page... front and back = 1 sheet of paper per student). The students then fill out the answers to my guided and scaffolded questions as I fill them out on the SmartBoard. My teaching style is highly interactive, and my lessons support that style.
All lessons include a Do Now, Mini Lesson, Pair Up, and Summary to keep students moving and engaged.
To remove the "Wickline" watermark, select the Watermark from the Insert menu, then select No Watermark. You cannot remove the watermark's from .pdf files and SmartBoard files, so you'll have to make new ones from your fresh watermark-less Microsoft file.
