Classroom Resources: Kinetics
1 – 7 of 7 Classroom Resources
Reduction, Oxidation, Redox Reaction, Catalysts, Activation Energy, Combustion | High School
In this activity, students will watch a video and answer related questions about the role of a catalytic converter and its corresponding chemical reactions within a vehicle. Students will learn about both oxidation and reduction reactions as well as the purpose of a catalyst.
Reaction Rate, Activation Energy, Catalysts, Reaction Rate | High School
The AACT high school classroom resource library and multimedia collection has everything you need to put together a unit plan for your classroom: lessons, activities, labs, projects, videos, simulations, and animations. We constructed a unit plan using AACT resources that is designed to teach the topic of kinetics to your students.
Reaction Rate, Order of Reaction , Activation Energy, Catalysts, Rate Constant, Rate Determining Step, Reaction Rate | High School
In this lesson students explore reaction mechanisms and their connection to rate laws and energy profile graphs through a game, relay race, and finally a chemical demonstration.
Equilibrium Constants, Reaction Quotient, Activation Energy, Energy Diagrams, Catalysts, Enthalpy, Entropy, Spontaneous vs. Non-spontaneous Reactions | High School
In this lesson students will understand the connections between the equilibrium constant (K) and the reaction quotient (Q) as well as how they determine the favorability of a reaction. Additionally students will be able to determine if a reaction is kinetically favored or thermodynamically favored.
Reaction Rate, Activation Energy, Hess's Law, Exothermic & Endothermic, Le Châtelier's Principle | High School
In this lab, students will investigate the reaction of the hydrogen sulfite ion (HSO3-) and the iodate ion (IO3-) to determine the effect that changing concentration and temperature has on the reaction rate.
Catalysts, Order of Reaction , Activation Energy, Lewis Structures, Resonance, Molecular Geometry, Activation Energy, Energy Diagrams | High School
In this lesson students will make observations of a colorful homogenous catalyst and intermediate in a reaction demonstration that will spark their interests. They will then work in teams to analyze graphs and data sets in order to make a real-world connection to AP topics in kinetics such as catalysts, intermediates and reaction mechanisms by exploring how CFCs work to break down the ozone layer. Students will also investigate and discuss this environmental issue.
Combustion, Limiting Reactant, Catalysts, Gas Laws, Stoichiometry, Activation Energy, Enthalpy, Energy Diagrams, Experimental Design | High School
In this lab, students create a stoichiometric mixture of hydrogen and oxygen gases to launch a soda bottle rocket.
