Classroom Resources: Acids & Bases
1 – 3 of 3 Classroom Resources
Le Châtelier's Principle, Equilibrium Constants | High School
In this activity, students will use the simulation, Surface Ocean pH Levels, from the Chemistry in Context Simulation Suite to investigate the values related to ocean acidification and interpret systems with multiple equilibria.
Establishing Equilibrium, Equilibrium Constants, Reaction Quotient, Graphing | High School
In this activity, students work together in small groups using a variety of multi-sided dice to model the dynamic character of a chemical equilibrium. Students will collect, share and analyze data in order to understand that the rate of a chemical reaction depends on the concentration of reactants (and products) as modelled by the different sided dice.
Strong vs Weak, Equilibrium Constants, Salts | High School
In this lesson students will write dissociation reactions to make connections between conjugate acid-base pairs. They will use beaker diagrams in a cooperative group activity to better understand why the pH calculation for a weak acid/base is not the same for a strong acid/base. Finally, students will apply these concepts in a lab in which they will identify several unknown, clear, colorless solutions using factors such as pH, conductivity and reactivity. The activities in this lesson can be used in sequence or as standalone activities.
