This PowerPoint lesson reintroduces the topics of assigning oxidation states to elements in compounds.
Then it visits the topic of identifying half-reactions as oxidation or reduction based on the placement of electrons in the reaction equation.
Next, the process of transforming a full reaction equation into half-reactions is presented in a highly organized fashion. Students are able to complete all of these tasks by the end of the period.
Most of my chemistry lessons are 8 slide PowerPoints. I print the PowerPoints each day (4 slides per page... front and back = 1 sheet of paper per student). The students then fill out the answers to my guided and scaffolded questions as I fill them out on the SmartBoard. My teaching style is highly interactive, and my lessons support that style.
All lessons include a Do Now, Mini Lesson, Pair Up, and Summary to keep students moving and engaged.
To remove the "Wickline" watermark, select the Watermark from the Insert menu, then select No Watermark. You cannot remove the watermark's from .pdf files and SmartBoard files, so you'll have to make new ones from your fresh watermark-less Microsoft file.
