The Celsius scale has negative temperatures. As a result, it is not a ratio scale. When zero means "none" as it does for distance, it is possible to make ratios. A distance of 6 m is twice as big as 3 m. A temperature of 40°C is not twice as hot as

The gas laws can be manipulated to provide a slew of quantitative data. The ideal gas law relates moles and volume. Moles are related to mass and molar mass. Mass and volume are related to density. Through algebraic manipulation of the gas laws, it

Hydrolysis is the reverse of neutralization (a salt reacts with water to produce an acid and a base). The reaction is reversible, so the result depends on the equilibrium. Actual hydrolysis only occurs if a weak acid or base forms, since strong

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

Taught biology, chemistry, and general science in the East Ramapo Central school District, Spring Valley, NY from 1970 to 2003. Teach chemistry at the Frisch school, Paramus, NJ since 2003

MY TEACHING STYLE

I teach using the smart board and power point presentations. My lessons depend heavily on questioning and student responses. Lessons generally include activities and/or demonstrations with work sheets for follow up. All of my work sheets correlated to my power point presentations, and are available free of charge on my web site: http://www.evanschemistrycorner.com .
