Guided Instructional Activities (GIAs) were part of the “Mastering Chemistry on the Web” (MCWeb) program, a part of the National Science Foundation Molecular Science Project ( (link is external)).

Stoichiometry Guided Instructional Activities with Guide Framework

Dr. Patrick Wegner (California State University, Fullerton) developed these POGIL-like (Process-Orineted Guided-Inquiry Learning) activities for use in preparatory and general chemistry classes. While some of the activities are, like POGIL real guided inquiry, many are simply cooperative learning activities that give students an opportunity to work toward a common goal while discussing and practicing skills of particular interest. The usual procedure is to assign students randomly into groups of two (which change for each activity). They work at tables of two groups each. These GIAs are part of a unit on stoichiometry. Chemical Education Xchange. Most students, and many of my (now former) colleagues, find stoichiometry to be one of the most challenging topics in a first year (and yes, even a second year) chemistry class.

Chemical Education Xchange

But my students and I have always looked forward to the challenge, and the fun. Certainly, stoichiometry means diligent work, and for some it means frustration. But there is no reason it has to be dire, difficult, or drudgery. Yes, the new Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) do not specify stoichiometry. This was a concern of many reviewers.

State testing is late in the school year which means that we get to spend only about two to three days on our last unit, astronomy.

Luckily this year we have what's called a science reading enrichment period. It allows us to cover more in depth some of the concepts that we don't usually have time to do. This past couple of weeks, we got to cover some astronomy. In the last few years, students have been asking me numerous times two questions: "Why isn't Pluto a planet anymore?

", and "Did you hear about the 10th planet? " Derek Muller, the main host of the videos, usually goes to the streets and asks questions to ordinary people about a particular science concept. I decided to ask the question, "what makes a planet a planet? " Whitney High School - Chemistry. Itled.

Making Measurement Meaningful or Why to Avoid Saying "Sig Figs" in Class. Every year when the day came to discuss the rules for significant figures in measurements with my classes I would write the rules on the board, we’d work through a couple examples, and I’d try to find a way to explain why we needed to use them when reporting measurements.

Making Measurement Meaningful or Why to Avoid Saying "Sig Figs" in Class.

This has never been my favorite topic to teach, mostly because I had a difficult time helping students see why these rules for measurement and reporting uncertainty were important. My students came to believe that sig figs were only important because there would be a grade penalty for not reporting to the right number of digits. This year I was determined to do a better job. The modeling curriculum has a sequence of activities I used to help illustrate how and why we report uncertainty in measurement. The sequence begins with practicing reading various devices – rulers, graduated cylinders, beakers, and burets. Why is a buret more precise than a beaker? What determines a device’s precision?

Teachers can use our content for pre-labs, for alternatives to textbook homework, and for in-class activities for individuals or teams. Students can review and learn chemistry concepts using our virtual labs, simulations, and tutorials. The ChemCollective is organized by a group of faculty and staff at Carnegie Mellon who are interested in using, assessing, and creating engaging online activities for chemistry education.

In the game Mixed Reception, students use molar mass calculations, the scientific method, and basic knowledge of chemical reactions to solve a murder mystery.

Detection of Ions in Solutions Using Acid/Base Chemistry: A Quality Control Test Tamara Hanna 2004-2005 CSIP Fellow This curriculum unit allows students to become quality control testers and determine the amount of Ca2+ in Tang® and Mg(OH)2 in milk of magnesia through the use of acid/base titrations.

Students will standardize three solutions that will be used in detecting the ions and will learn about titrations, indicators, pH and pH meters and the preparation of solutions, all included in a Regents curriculum. These experiments were designed for use by high school chemistry classes, either Regents or AP. This curriculum gives students a chance to see how solutions are analyzed in a chemical setting.

The unit was developed/modified by Tamara Hanna, a graduate student in chemistry at Cornell University and was adapted from a lab written by Dr. LEARN NC: Search Results.

Because I know it’s sometimes handy for new (and not so new) chemistry teachers to see what other teachers are doing, I’ve decided to post, in chronological order, links to each of the homework assignments I gave my chemistry classes in the 2008-09 school year. As you can tell, I like to write my own questions as opposed to using the textbook. A couple of warnings: Because I use these worksheets myself and my students are very aware of my website, I have not included the answer keys to any of these worksheets.

I also can’t promise that they’re perfect in every way – some may have errors that I haven’t fixed yet. Another thing to keep in mind: If you don’t see a topic, homework was probably in some form other than worksheets. You’ll need the Adobe Acrobat Reader to access these files. 9/5: Safety and equipment homework sheet, safety contract 9/9: Scientific method worksheet. 9/11: SI units homework 9/17: Data Collection Review Sheet.
