beyond benign : green chemistry curriculum Green Chemistry: The Green Curriculum "Benign by design," green chemistry is designed to have less impact on the environment by creating lower levels of waste and toxicity than traditional chemistry. Green chemistry is also a compelling way to assist teachers as they strive to interest middle school students (ages 9 – 13) in science and math. Curriculum & Teacher Training
Andrew G Myers Research Group Skip to main content Search Department of Chemistry & Chemical Biology | HARVARD.EDU We are pleased to provide the following series of chemistry handouts to anyone who might benefit from reading them and do so free of charge. AP Chemistry Review Activities AP Chemistry Interactive Review Activities In keeping with the new framework for AP Chemistry beginning in 2013 - 2014, I am indicating here if the topic to which a review activity relates has been dropped from the curriculum. It will be identified as excluded (Excluded) to indicate that the College Board has specifically excluded it. I will leave the reviews here, however, in case some of you find them useful. These are not graded assignments. They are intended only as practice of concepts and vocabulary that are essential to your success in this course.
Molecule of the Month Welcome to the Molecule of the Month page! This is one of the longest running chemistry webpages on the internet (started in January 1996). Each month since then a new molecule has been added to the list on this page. The links will take you to a page at one of the Web sites at a University Chemistry Department or commercial site in the UK, the US, or anywhere in the world, where useful (and hopefully entertaining!), information can be found about a particularly interesting molecule. If you wish to contribute a Molecule of the Month page, just email me the URL and I'll add you to the list at the next opportunity.
Chemistry Review Activities I re-organized the course during the 2014 - 2015 school year. Some review activities were moved to new units. This has resulted in a change to some of the file names, so direct links to the individual activities may need to be changed. These are not graded assignments. Science Friday Science Friday’s lesson plans and activities are produced by our education staff and with partner organizations. Sep. 26, 2014 Science Club #ObserveEverything By Science Friday Education Go out and observe something interesting! Atoms: Neutrons Neutrons are the particles in an atom that have a neutral charge. They aren't positive like protons. They aren't negative like electrons.

This set of lessons presents an updated view of the Brønsted-Lowry theory that makes it easy to understand answers to common questions: What's the fundamental difference between a strong acid and a weak acid? Can acid A neutralize base B? Why are some salts acidic and others alkaline? How do buffers work?
James Kennedy Anyone who’s spent time in a classroom knows that in any academic subject, the student who reads the textbook several times from cover to cover and makes colourful, organised notes all over it is going to excel in examinations. For this reason, I’ve been trying to get students reading their textbooks (and making great notes on them) almost as long as I’ve been teaching (since 2007). Glancing your eyes over the words in a textbook isn’t enough. How should you use a textbook properly, in any subject? There are six rules you need to follow. 1. Make an Acid-Base Rainbow Wand By Anne Marie Helmenstine, Ph.D. An acid-base rainbow wand is an easy and colorful chemistry demonstration which illustrates the range of colors available for a pH indicator solution. Take a long glass tube and fill it with Universal Indicator solution. Add a few drops of 0.02M HCl to one end of the tube and seal it with a stopper.
