Classroom Resources: Quantitative Chemistry
1 – 4 of 4 Classroom Resources
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!
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.
