Classroom Resources: Quantitative Chemistry
1 – 12 of 12 Classroom Resources
Intermolecular Forces, Molecular Structure, Measurements, SI Units | High School
In this activity students will use unit conversion to help compare sizes of molecules, viruses, and droplets and then use them to interpret graphical data. They will then use their findings to design a cloth mask that helps protect its wearer against infection by SARS-CoV-2, the coronavirus that causes COVID-19.
Measurements, Significant Figures, SI Units | High School
In this activity, students will develop an understanding of why significant figures are important in chemistry and learn how to determine the number of significant figures in a measurement.
Separating Mixtures, Physical Properties, Chemical Change, Introduction, Physical Change, History, Lab Safety, Measurements, Significant Figures, SI Units, Chemical Properties | High School
The AACT High School Classroom Resource library and multimedia collection has everything you need to put together a unit plan for your classroom: lessons, activities, labs, projects, videos, simulations, and animations. We searched through our resource library and constructed a unit plan for introducing the basic chemistry concepts to students: Laboratory Safety, Equipment, and Reports, Periodic Table Basics, Physical and Chemical Properties and Changes, Endothermic and Exothermic Changes, and Classification of Matter. These topics are very important for your students to master before they dig into other chemistry concepts. This unit is designed to be used at beginning of the school year.
Observations, History, Conservation of Mass, Measurements, SI Units | Middle School, High School
In this activity, students will watch a video about Antoine Lavoisier, who many consider to be the father of modern chemistry. They will answer questions as they learn about oxygen, hydrogen, and the first proposal of the Law of the Conservation of Mass.
Physical Properties, History, Measurements, Temperature, SI Units, Accuracy | Elementary School, Middle School, High School
In this activity, students will watch a video and answer questions about how both the thermometer and the concept of temperature evolved over time
Accuracy, Measurements, Significant Figures, SI Units | 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.
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.
Dimensional Analysis, SI Units | High School
In this lesson, students will learn how to use dimensional analysis for unit conversion problems. They will then practice the skill on several chemistry-based conversion problems.
Observations, History, Conservation of Mass, 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.
Dimensional Analysis, Scientific Notation, SI Units | High School
In this lesson, students will solve a variety of real-world problems using scientific notation. Students will listen to a convoluted radio conversation about coffee which will relate to a math-based problem that this lesson is developed around. Students will begin to recognize the benefits of using scientific notation in their calculations.
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.
Temperature, Gas Laws, Pressure, Molecular Motion, Kinetic Molecular Theory, SI Units, Volume | High School, Middle School
In this simulation, students investigate variables of a gas. From the computer models, they can see how pressure, temperature, and volume effect gas behavior.
