Classroom Resources: Quantitative Chemistry
51 – 64 of 64 Classroom Resources
Percent Yield, Limiting Reactant, Stoichiometry, Dimensional Analysis | High School
In this activity, students use a chocolate chip cookie recipe to answer questions related to stoichiometry, percent yield, and limiting reactants.
Catalysts, Reaction Rate, Experimental Design, Scientific Method, Chemical Change, Error Analysis, Balancing Equations, Percent Yield, Stoichiometry, Chemical Change, Measurements, Error Analysis, Dimensional Analysis | High School
In this lesson students will be introduced to catalysts while expanding their knowledge of chemical reactions and stoichiometry. They will first learn about catalytic converters and then be challenged to create the best “catalytic converter” of hydrogen peroxide to oxygen gas in an inquiry-based activity.
Mole Concept, Measurements, Dimensional Analysis, Molar Mass | High School
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, Significant Figures, Dimensional Analysis, Measurements, Scientific Notation, Molar Mass, Molecular Formula | High School
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
In this lab, students take an abstract concept, the mole, and turn it into a real measurable concept.
Density, Dimensional Analysis, Review, Measurements, Accuracy, Accuracy, Experimental Design, Error Analysis | High School, Middle School
In this lab, students will find the density of a bowling ball to determine whether it will sink or float in water.
Stoichiometry, Percent Yield, Classification of Reactions, Balancing Equations, Chemical Change, Dimensional Analysis, Error Analysis, Measurements, Accuracy | High School
In this lab, students will decompose baking soda and use stoichiometry to determine the proper balanced chemical equation of its decomposition.
Limiting Reactant, Acid Base Reactions, Stoichiometry, Indicators, pH, Dimensional Analysis, Mole Concept, Measurements, Concentration, Molarity | High School
In this lab, students experience a limiting reactant and can physically see the difference in amounts of product generated. They also see which reactant is in excess.
Chemical Change, Gas Laws, Stoichiometry, Balancing Equations, Volume, Dimensional Analysis, Mole Concept | High School
In this lab, students make real-world connections of stoichiometry with the design of car air bags.
Dimensional Analysis, Significant Figures, Measurements, Error Analysis, Accuracy, Interdisciplinary | High School
In this lab, students determine both the diameter of one single BB and the length of an oleic acid molecule.
Mole Concept, Dimensional Analysis, Density | High School
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.
Molarity, Concentration, Mixtures, Solute & Solvent, Dimensional Analysis, Mole Concept, Measurements | High School
In this lab, students calculate concentrations of and perform dilutions of Kool-Aid and juice solutions.
Mole Concept, Measurements, Dimensional Analysis | High School
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.
Measurements, Introduction, Dimensional Analysis, Scientific Notation, Error Analysis, Significant Figures, Accuracy, Density, Error Analysis, Interdisciplinary, Accuracy | High School
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.
