This 26-slide PowerPoint lesson on Balancing Half Reactions in Acidic Solutions begins by reviewing redox reactions. It then outlines half reactions and balancing before checking student's understanding. The lesson then covers corrosion, its dangers, and corrosion protection by oxide coating.

The student version of the PowerPoint contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities.
