This awesomely animated and highly organized PowerPoint points out the similarities and differences between isomers... organic compounds that have the same molecular formula but different structural formulas. This is a great entree into the naming of branched chain hydrocarbons, and that's where the cool animations come in. Students will learn how to name a variety of branched chain hydrocarbons by the end of the lesson.
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.
