Classroom Resources: Electrochemistry
1 – 4 of 4 Classroom Resources
Catalysts, Reduction, Combustion, Redox Reaction, Activation Energy, Oxidation | Elementary School, Middle School, High School
This video investigates the role of a catalytic converter and its corresponding chemical reactions within a vehicle. Students will learn about both oxidation and reduction reactions and how they, in combination with a catalyst, can impact the molecules released in a car’s exhaust.
Observations, Chemical Change, Redox Reaction, Scientific Method, Electron Transfer, Experimental Design | High School, Middle School
In this lab, students will observe a reaction between an iron nail and copper(II) sulfate in a test tube over the course of several days, modeling how a similar reaction occurs to form copper deposits in the earth. Students will also modify the procedures to evaluate how changing a factor of their choice affects the results of the test tube reaction, introducing them to concepts of experimental design. It also introduces students to my version of the Science Writing Heuristic (SWH).
Observations, Chemical Change, Inferences, Reduction, Redox Reaction, Classification of Reactions, Chemical Change, Oxidation, Electron Transfer, Electrons, Ions | Middle School
In this lesson, students will observe a chemical change involving oxidation and reduction.
Oxidation, Reduction, Redox Reaction, Chemical Change, Oxidation, Electron Transfer, Electrons | Middle School
In this lesson, students will explore the concept of oxidation of metals by creating designs on fabric or paper using rusty objects.
