Classroom Resources: Quantitative Chemistry
1 – 8 of 8 Classroom Resources
SI Units, Mole Concept, Measurements, Physical Properties, Density | Middle School, High School
In this animation, students will be introduced to the importance of including units to communicate the value of measurements effectively. The animation presents definitions, units of measurement, and measuring tools for physical properties that are commonly measured or calculated in chemistry class: mass, length, temperature, volume, amount (moles), and density. **This video has no audio**
Measurements, Dimensional Analysis | Middle School, High School
In this animation, students review the fundamentals of measurement in length, mass, and volume. The animation also provides opportunities for students to practice unit conversions to confirm their understanding. **This video has no audio**
Measurements, SI Units, Significant Figures, Accuracy | Middle School, High School
In this simulation, students will participate in a 10 question quiz. The quiz questions are each made of two parts, with the first part requiring the student to analyze an image of a graduated cylinder in order to report an accurate measurement. Students must use the correct number of digits based on the markings presented on the cylinder when reporting the measurement. In the second portion of the question the students will determine the uncertainty value of the graduated cylinder, again by analyzing its markings. The simulation is made up of several different sizes of graduated cylinders, each containing unique markings, so students will be challenged to analyze each individually.
Temperature, History, Accuracy, Physical Properties | Elementary School, Middle School, High School
This video tells the story of how temperature as we currently know it evolved. The first thermometers invented in the early 1600s are very different than ones we use today!
Limiting Reactant, Conservation of Mass, Stoichiometry, Mole Concept | High School
In this animation, students will visualize on the particulate level what happens in a limiting reactant problem. A number of limiting reactant scenarios are animated, including a simple example of how to build a bike to introduce the concept of limiting reactant. Conservation of mass is also demonstrated by calculating masses from the mole quantities of the reactants and products. **This video has no audio**
Density, Matter, Physical Properties, Measurements | Elementary School, Middle School, High School
In this animation, students will visualize density on the particulate level. There are opportunities to make qualitative and quantitative comparisons between substances. **This video has no audio**
Conservation of Mass, History, Observations, Measurements, SI Units | Elementary School, Middle School, High School
This video tells the story of Antoine Lavoisier who many consider to be the father or modern chemistry. Lavoisier discovered oxygen and hydrogen and first proposed the Law of Conservation of Mass.
Mole Concept, Measurements, History, Ideal Gas, Gas Laws | High School
This video tells the story of Amedeo Avogadro, the scientist given credit for the mole concept, but who discovered other things in chemistry too.
