Classroom Resources: Organic Chemistry
1 – 5 of 5 Classroom Resources
Separating Mixtures, Density, Polymers, Polymers | High School
In this activity, students will familiarize themselves with different types of plastics. Using data analysis, students will determine how to use the density values of a variety of plastic samples in order to separate a specific sample from a mixture.
Density, Polymers, Polymers, Chemical Properties | High School
In this lab students will use data and chemical tests to better understand different types of plastics and their properties. Ultimately, students can choose the best plastic material to construct a compost bin.
Polymers, Combustion, Heat, Exothermic & Endothermic, Heat of Combustion, Molecular Structure | High School
In this activity, students will watch a video and answer related questions about the mechanical and chemical processed used in the internal combustion engine. Additionally they will learn about reactions and fuel types as well as the history and evolution of the combustion engine.
Physical Properties, Polymers, Molecular Structure, Polymers | High School
In this activity, students will discover how the entanglement in cooked spaghetti depends on the length of the spaghetti strands and relate this discovery to polymeric materials.
Polymers, Polymers, Chemical Change, Chemical Bond | Middle School, High School
In this demonstration, students will observe the process of making a polymer, casein plastic, from the casein protein found in milk.
