Classroom Resources: Quantitative Chemistry
1 – 9 of 9 Classroom Resources
Accuracy, Measurements, Significant Figures, SI Units | High School, Middle 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.
Density, Percent Composition, Accuracy, Dimensional Analysis, Measurements, Scientific Notation, Significant Figures, SI Units | High School
The AACT High School Classroom Resource library has everything you need to put together a unit plan for your classroom: lessons, activities, labs, projects, videos, simulations, and animations. We constructed a unit plan for introducing concepts student need to collect and use chemical measurements: Percent Composition, Metric Units, Accuracy and Precision, Percent Error, Density, Scientific Notation, Significant Figures, and Unit Conversion. This unit is designed to be used at beginning of the school year and modified based on student math abilities.
Density, Accuracy, Measurements, Significant Figures | High School, Middle School
In this lesson, students will use laboratory equipment of different precision to collect data for several different metals, and then use the data to calculate the density of each. They will then compare their calculated densities to accepted values and determine the combination of equipment that leads to the most accurate calculation of density.
Physical Properties, History, Accuracy, Temperature | High School, Middle School, Elementary 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!
Combustion, Accuracy, Dimensional Analysis, Measurements, Calorimetry, Heat, Specific Heat, Temperature, Exothermic & Endothermic, Heat of Combustion, Law of Conservation of Energy, Bond Energy, Error analysis | High School
In this lab, students will find the amount of heat energy stored in foods and compare heat calories with food calories.
Accuracy, Measurements, Accuracy, Error analysis, Error analysis | High School
In this lab, students use different types of laboratory glassware to measure 50 mL of water and determine the accuracy of each piece of glassware.
Observations, Separating Mixtures, Chemical Change, Conservation of Mass, Lab Safety, Conservation of Matter, Balancing Equations, Percent Yield, Conservation of Mass, Classification of Reactions, Accuracy, Chemical Change, Chemical Properties, Conservation of Matter, Error analysis | High School
In this lab, students will convert copper metal into different copper compounds and then back to copper to illustrate conservation of matter.
Density, Review, Accuracy, Dimensional Analysis, Measurements, Accuracy, Error analysis, Experimental design | High School
In this lab, students will find the density of a bowling ball to determine whether it will sink or float in water.
Introduction, Accuracy, Measurements, SI Units | High School
In this activity, students predict the measurements of objects using metric units. They then take the actual measurements and compare them to their predictions.
