A Visual and Intuitive Approach to Stoichiometry

WEBINAR (1 hour) recorded February 7, 2017

Do your students struggle with stoichiometry? Many of the methods used don't really help students understand what stoichiometry is about. This webinar discusses how to approach teaching stoichiometry problems using a table set-up (commonly referred to as Before, Change, After tables) to make the process visually appealing and more intuitive for students. The process emphasizes proportional reasoning and explicitly connects the calculations to the particulate nature of matter.

Connections to equilibrium calculations are also discussed to show how this method can easily be integrated in to your curriculum and benefit your students in more than one area.
