Classroom Resources: Organic Chemistry
1 – 7 of 7 Classroom Resources
Balancing Equations, Molecular Structure , Functional Groups | High School
In this lab, students will make at least six esters from different combinations of available organic acids and alcohols. In addition, they will attempt to identify the scent of each ester that is created.
Physical Properties, Intermolecular Forces, Polarity, Physical Change, Molecular Structure, Molecular Structure , Chemical Properties, Molecular Geometry | High School
In this lesson students will explore intermolecular forces, and their associated effect on physical and chemical properties. Students will experiment with volatile liquids to investigate their predictions about intermolecular strength.
Molecular Structure , Subatomic Particles, Photosynthesis | Middle School
In this lesson, students will learn about how Carbon cycles through Earth’s systems and its importance for life on Earth.
Naming Compounds, Introduction, Interdisciplinary, Molecular Formula, Molecular Structure, Molecular Structure , Chemical Bond | High School, Middle School
In this activity, students will identify that organic compounds contain carbon and other elements such as hydrogen and oxygen. They will investigate the structure of different organic and inorganic compounds and model several molecules, including a carbohydrate molecule. They will use their models to help understand how larger molecules are broken down into smaller molecules.
History, Periodic Table, Molecular Structure, Molecular Structure , Molecular Geometry | High School, Middle School, Elementary 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.
Molecular Structure, Molecular Structure | 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.
