PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

Spun-off from Amazon's popular line of Bossy Brocci Math and Big Science Workbooks, this Bundle on Balancing Chemical Equations and Understanding The Law of Conservation of Matter (LoCoM) contains: 11 Lessons, 36 Worksheets, 293 Problems, 768 student tasks - and Assessment up the a$$! Individual cost would be $15, but the Bundle price is just $12

100 slides are printed as 50 Landscape DOUBLE-SIDED sheets of paper, with the flip being along the 'SHORT' edge.

================================================

Most ELA, Math and Science teachers don't have more than 100

State Tests on their shoulders - and they enjoy anywhere from 60 to

90 minutes to teach their class. But I've been whipping the

State while teaching an average of 110 students per year - and

with only about 38 minutes for science class!

It's a matter of public record:

I've crushed the State by 17 to 32 points, and by an average

of 23 points over a 5-year stretch.

And I'm North Carolina's 2016 Top-Scoring Science Teacher.


I've done it with:

No Teaching Assistants,

No Tutors,

No Remediation Class,

and No Test-Prep books or programs.


So what are my kids learning, doing and using?

Bossy Brocci worksheets.

================================================

Please note: This Bundle's main emphasis is on mathematically showing students HOW to quantify species for Balancing Chemical Equations - and how this relates to The Law of Conservation of Matter. While it has many chemical equations that require balancing, the difficulty of these would be Basic Level for typical 11th grade/Junior chemistry students - BUT very thorough & rigorous preparation for Grade 8 or Middle School curriculum & Testing.

Note: this Lesson is a thorough examination of just what The Law of Conservation of Matter means -and DOESN'T mean-, vis a vis Chemical Reactions & Chemical Equations.

Thus, after this lesson, your students will discover 2 Universal Truths about The Law of Conservation of Matter and Chemical Reactions/Chemical Equations:
A) That 1 thing ALWAYS CHANGES: Chemical species or identity and
B) That 4 things ALWAYS STAY THE SAME: Elements, Number of Element Atoms, Total Atoms and Total Mass.
