Classroom Resources: Organic Chemistry
26 – 32 of 32 Classroom Resources
Pharmaceuticals, Molecular Structure | High School
In this research project, students will demonstrate their knowledge of stereochemistry and present its role in well-known pharmaceutical compounds.
History, Periodic Table, Molecular Structure, Molecular Structure , Molecular Geometry | Elementary School, Middle School, High School
In this video, Sam Kean tells the story of how phosphorus was at the center of the race to discover the structure of DNA.
Polymers, Molecular Structure, Polymers, Chemical Change, Molecular Structure , Chemical Bond, Monomer, Monomer | Middle School
In this lesson students will use lab activities and discussion to explore polymers and their use in 3D printing, with an emphasis on the benefits of 3D printing in automotive manufacturing.
Separating Mixtures, Physical Properties, Melting Point, Intermolecular Forces, Phase Changes, Isomers, Distillation, Molecular Structure, Intermolecular Forces, Molecular Structure , Boiling Point, Molecular Geometry, Isomers | High School
In this activity, students will use models to explore structural isomers, and create explanations for the impact of structure on intermolecular forces (London dispersion) and physical properties (boiling point).
Renewable Energy, Balancing Equations, Conservation of Mass, Chemical Change, Molecular Structure , Functional Groups | High School
In this lab, students will transform vegetable oil into a soft soap and into biodiesel fuel. The two reactions emphasize that the products of a chemical reaction are under the control of the chemist. By noting the relationship of the reaction product to the reactants, students will gain a deeper understanding of the law of conservation of matter.
Molecular Formula, Molecular Structure, Molecular Structure , Functional Groups, Oxidation, Saturated vs. Unsaturated | High School
Explore emergency lesson plans from ChemMatters magazine.
Renewable Energy, Chemical Change, Interdisciplinary, Distillation, Molecular Structure, Combustion, Stoichiometry, Chemical Change, Molecular Structure , Enthalpy | High School
In this lesson students will explore the world of automobile alternative energy sources through the study of biofuels. They will design and create an e-book that illustrates and explains one of the provided topics or an original idea approved by the teacher.
