When teaching moles, it is important for students to make connections between grams and moles of a substance. What makes this lab so great is how easy it is to set up. All you need is a few different chemicals, pocket scales, scoopulas, and
This can be used as a homework assignment as reinforcement on molar mass as well as using conversion factors. Students use the molar masses calculated in a table to solve one-step conversion factor problems.
This is an overview that students are provided with at the beginning of a unit. This gives students a heads-up on what they will be learning and is also a useful reviewing tool for students. I give a unit checklist to students before every unit.
This is a comprehensive introduction to radioactivity produced over years of teaching chemistry. Sections were added during my summer research program at a local university. Packet opens with a grabber that interests students in radioactivity
This is a simple laboratory activity that is fun to do with your class.You will need some sugar-gum (anything that isn't sugar-free) and some pocket scales. Students get to chew the gum and calculate the molecules of sugar they ingested.Chemistry
Students get to write their names with chalk and then calculate how much chalk they need to write their names. Students should have been introduced to:1) Avogadro's number2) Conversion Factors3) Molar massYou will need1) Chalk2) ScalesSimple
