This zip file contains many different activities (40 pages of student handouts and a PowerPoint with a total of 44 slides) which can be used to compose a unit for Chemistry students on topics involving the Mathematics of Chemistry. Topics included in this unit are calculation of gram molecular mass, percent composition, water of hydration, the concept of the mole, mole conversions to gram molecular mass and numbers of molecules, mole relationships in equations and determination of empirical and molecular formulas. While these lessons were originally designed to correlate to my New York State high school Chemistry class, the components of this lesson may be easily used in other chemistry or physical science courses as well.
Many documents are included in both word docx as well as pdf format to allow editing for specific teacher needs.
The specific contents of the learning package includes the following items (the page count for these items are actual student handouts as answer key page counts are not included):
-- Marzano self assessment scale including learning goals and Common Core Reading/Writing and Mathematics Standards for students specific to this unit (2 pages)
-- Cloze notes handout for students with learning goals (8 pages)
-- 44 slide PowerPoint to accompany the cloze notes
