This super-organized and mildly quirky PowerPoint introduces and explores heat calculations for substances not undergoing phase changes. Way back when I was in high school, I remembered the following equations... q = mCâˆ†T or q = mâ€¢Câ€¢âˆ†T or q = mâ€¢Câ€¢(Tf-Ti) simply as q=mCAT, so I put a picture of a cat in the PowerPoint to freak my students out and to help them remember the formulas.
Lots of practice and guided questioning accompany this lesson. Make sure your students have calculators at the ready.
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.
