Student note guide to the PowerPoint lesson I in the "Solutions, Acids and Bases" unit VII - introductory chemistry. This lesson describes dissociation, dispersion and ionization when substances dissolve in water; identifies different physical properties of solutions and solvents; describes energy changes during the formation of a solution and the factors that affect solutes dissolving in a solvent.
PowerPoint lessons contain many graphics and links to short videos to further student understanding.
PowerPoint slides also contain notes for the instructor based on students most "frequently asked questions" or FAQ's to help clarify the subject.
A class activity is included at the end of each lesson.
