Students engage in learning solution concepts with activities using a variety strategies that includes: guided inquiry (two pogils), cooperative learning (Sage and Scribe, Three Heads Together, Share Around the Table), demonstrations (Shrinking Volumes, Factors Effecting the Rate of Dissolution, Super Saturated and; Saturated, Freezing Point Depression), Vocabulary Dominos, a Water Scavenger Hunt, foldables, and worksheets.
Objectives: The student understands and can apply the factors that influence the behavior of solutions. The student is expected to:
a. describe the unique role of water in chemical and biological systems;
b. develop and use general rules regarding solubility through investigations with aqueous solutions
c. calculate the concentration of solutions in units of molarity; molality, %, dilutions of solutions;
d. distinguish between types of solutions such as electrolytes and nonelectrolytes and unsaturated, saturated, and supersaturated solutions;
e. investigate factors that influence solubility’s and rates of dissolution such as temperature,) agitation, and surface area
f. investigate and solve colligative properties problems.
