Chemical Change, Physical Change, Activity Series, Redox Reaction, Chemical Change | High School
In this demonstration, students practice their observation skills during the additions of different acids to two test tubes containing copper. The activity is structured to allow students to make thoughtful remarks about what they observe, using rich indicators of both chemical and physical properties and changes. In subsequent lessons on new concepts, students can reflect back on their observations to rationalize the discrepant results of the reactions in the demonstration.
Balancing Equations, Activity Series, Classification of Reactions, Solubility Rules | High School
In this simulation, students will reference an activity series and a solubility chart to accurately predict the products of single replacement and double replacement chemical reactions. Associated particle diagrams will be displayed to help students better comprehend the reaction at the particulate level. Students will also be asked to balance the chemical equation. The simulation is designed as a five question quiz for students to use multiple times.
Balancing Equations, Reduction, Activity Series, Redox Reaction, Chemical Change, Oxidation | High School
In this lesson students will perform and analyze two single displacement reactions and prepare and manipulate Test Tube Diagrams to depict the activity at the molecular level. Using manipulatives representing individual ions, atoms and molecules for the various reactants and products, they will accurately represent species in the solid, gaseous and aqueous states by correlating the Test Tube Diagram to the complete ionic equation for each reaction. They will determine the reactants and products responsible for color, as well as identify which species is oxidized and which is reduced.
Activity Series, Classification of Reactions, Chemical Change | High School
In this lab, students will create an activity series of metals and predict whether or not single replacement reactions are likely to occur.
Observations, Chemical Change, Net Ionic Equation, Reduction, Activity Series, Redox Reaction, Oxidation | High School
In this lab, students will use the activity series to verify the outcome of a chemical reaction.
Atomic Spectra, Activity Series, Emission Spectrum, Electromagnetic Spectrum, Emission Spectrum, Ions | High School
In this lab, students will investigate the colors produced when several mixtures of metallic ions are placed in a flame.
Reduction, Percent Yield, Activity Series, Stoichiometry, Redox Reaction, Classification of Reactions, Mole Concept, Chemical Change, Dimensional Analysis, Measurements, Oxidation, Error analysis | High School
In this lab, students extract copper from copper carbonate using two different methods, and then determine which industrial method is most effective.
Electricity, Reduction, Activity Series, Redox Reaction, Reduction Potentials, Oxidation, Electron Transfer, Electrons | High School
In this lab, students will relate cell potential to the activity series.
Activity Series, Redox Reaction, Chemical Change | High School
In this lesson students will investigate the galvanic corrosion that can occur when different metals come in contact with each other in modern cars.
