AACT Resources to Help Teach Chemical Names and Formulas (November 13, 2018)
As chemistry teachers around the country plan activities for their students, AACT will be highlighting resources from our high school resource library that can be used to reinforce topics in different units throughout the school year. Our last post highlighted resources that could be used to support a Chemical Bonding unit. We will now focus on articles, videos, simulations, and activities that could be used in a Chemical Names and Formulas unit.
More New Resources from the 2018 AACT AP Chemistry Content Writing Team (November 1, 2018)
This past summer AACT hosted an AP Chemistry Content Writing Team to create AP chemistry focused teaching resources for our High School Classroom Resource Library. The four teachers chosen focused on creating teaching resources directly related to the Learning Objectives for the topics of equilibrium, intermolecular forces, photoelectron spectroscopy, Coulomb’s Law, electrolysis, reaction mechanisms, and kinetics. This week we are publishing two more resources from our content team.
