In this powerpoint, students will learn the fundamental parts of a chemical reaction.
They will be able to identify the products, reactants, subscripts, coefficients, and yield sign. They will see signs for states of matter within the reaction, and they will be asked to "word an equation," which requires them to combine their understanding of names and formulas to write a sentence that summarizes a chemical equation. Students will also understand the Law of Conservation of Mass and how to balance equations. There are practice problems embedded within and the animation on these problems are EXCELLENT! (Terms such as units, atoms, and molecules are also discussed and tied to ionic, covalent, and metallic compounds).
