  • Mole Concept, Significant Figures | High School

    Activity: Can You Color A Mole?

    In this activity, students determine how many moles of paraffin are used when they color a piece of paper as well as how many molecules and moles of wax are in one crayon.

  • Mole Concept, Dimensional Analysis, Measurements | High School

    Lab: Calculating Moles

    In this lab, students will have the opportunity to practice conducting the chemist’s way of counting atoms and molecules by using the mole. They will determine the mass of various common elements and compounds and convert this data into values of moles, atoms and molecules. This will allow students to realize the connection between commonly used laboratory chemicals and the quantitative data and calculations that are such a fundamental part of chemistry.

  • Mole Concept, Dimensional Analysis | High School

    Activity: Bring Me A Mole

    In this lab, students take an abstract concept, the mole, and turn it into a real measurable concept.

  • Density, Review, Dimensional Analysis, Measurements | High School

    Lab: Bowling Ball—Will it Sink or Float in Water?

    In this lab, students will find the density of a bowling ball to determine whether it will sink or float in water.

  • Dimensional Analysis, Significant Figures | High School

    Lab: Nanoscale and Self-Assembly

    In this lab, students determine both the diameter of one single BB and the length of an oleic acid molecule.

  • Measurements, SI Units | High School

    Activity: Mysteriously Melodramatic & Maniacal Metric Measurements

    In this activity, students predict the measurements of objects using metric units. They then take the actual measurements and compare them to their predictions.

  • Mole Concept, Dimensional Analysis | High School

    Lab: Moles of Food

    In this lab, students will analyze the nutrition label of a variety of foods to find the amount of specific elements in each serving. Students are asked to evaluate and compare the data in a series of questions, in order to convert the values to moles. This lab gives students the opportunity to see the connection between the chemistry mole concept and everyday foods.

  • Mole Concept | High School

    Lesson Plan: Molar Marks

    In this lesson, students will better understand the mole concept by using chalk to write their name on a sidewalk and finding out the composition of chalk through research.

  • Separating Mixtures, Percent Composition | Middle School

    Lab: Metallic Breakfast

    In this lab, students will separate iron filings from iron-fortified breakfast cereals. Students will use the recorded data to conduct percent composition calculations.

  • Introduction, Measurements | High School

    Lab: Math and Measurement

    In this lab, students will practice introductory math skills that will be used in chemistry all year. This includes metric conversion, significant figures, scientific notation, dimensional analysis, density, percent error, accuracy and precision, as well as using lab equipment.

  • Percent Composition, Introduction, Percent Composition, Scientific Method | Middle School

    Lab: Mass Percent

    In this lesson, students will develop a theory of how to calculate percent composition.

  • Conservation of Mass, Conservation of Mass, Measurements | Middle School, High School

    Lab: Mass & Change

    In this lab, students will use unified particle pictures of solid, liquid, and gas to explain the law of conservation of mass after carrying out various experiments.
