The updated/improved, image rich version of this unique Power Point presentation teaches students how to balance chemical equations using the "Formula Dropdown" method that I developed over years of trial and error. This is a superior, fail-safe method that ensures success - and understanding. Includes a visual approach that illustrates molecules and the atom rearrangements that occur during reactions. The updated version now includes a more detailed approach to teaching the "Formula Dropdown" method and a new section that covers the basics of stoichiometry. This is my magnum opus of chemistry Power Points because it really helps students to develop a true understanding of the fundamentals of chemical reactions and how they act as recipes for chemical change. I guarantee that your students will learn how to write and balance chemical equations in a way that goes far beyond the usual manipulation of atom counts. The visual and conceptual approach to understanding chemical equations combined with my proven, "Formula Dropdown" makes this one of the most unique and effective Power Point presentations available! And now bigger and better than ever! A must have for every chemistry teacher. And a true bargain at only $5.00!
