Classroom Resources: Reactions & Stoichiometry
1 – 7 of 7 Classroom Resources
Combustion, Heat, Exothermic & Endothermic, Heat of Combustion | Elementary School, Middle School, High School
This video investigates both the mechanical and the chemical processes used in the internal combustion engine, as well as the history and evolution of the combustion engine.
Precipitate, Balancing Equations, Solubility Rules | High School
In this animation, students will witness a precipitate reaction on the particulate level to understand why a net ionic equation represents what happens in these reaction types. An example of diluting a soluble solid, mixing two aqueous reactants that yield aqueous products, and mixing two aqueous reactants that yield a precipitate are part of this animation. **This video has no audio**
Stoichiometry, Conservation of Mass, Limiting Reactant, 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**
Catalysts, Reduction, Combustion, Redox Reaction, Activation Energy, Oxidation | Elementary School, Middle School, High School
This video investigates the role of a catalytic converter and its corresponding chemical reactions within a vehicle. Students will learn about both oxidation and reduction reactions and how they, in combination with a catalyst, can impact the molecules released in a car’s exhaust.
Balancing Equations, Stoichiometry, Conservation of Mass, Limiting Reactant | High School
In this activity, students will gain practice drawing particulate diagrams to demonstrate stoichiometry and limiting reactants.
Renewable Energy, Radiation, Pros Cons of Nuclear Power, Combustion, Acid Rain, Radiation | High School
In this activity, students will learn about acid rain, gas scrubbers, half-life, chain reactions, and other topics around electricity production through a debate on nuclear power.
Review, Model of the Atom, Isotopes, Balancing Equations, Atomic Mass, Subatomic Particles, Lewis Dot Diagrams, Electrons, Ions | High School, Middle School
In this activity students collaborate to complete tic-tac-toe review questions to prepare for a test on the atomic structure unit. The idea behind the activity is to give students choice and you can read more about the inspiration for the activity in the May issue of Chemistry Solutions.
