Educators apply here to access accessments. Approval may take one to two days.
Will you be udating all the chemistry units like you have been doing for AP chemistry? Because many of these units really need to be updated. Some of them are missing unit plans and assessments. Many have not been updated in years.
Sean - the plan is to update all of the missing pieces starting this summer and to update the older files. - Melissa
Hi, I am currently teaching a Low Level Chemistry inclusion class. I just registered with my New school email. Can I, or should I say, how do I break down the Stoich into more manageable mini lessons for some of my lower level students. Thank you for your help.
My suggestion would be to just teach them each piece independently. So -- you taught them particle - mole, mass - mole, and volume - mole conversion in the mole unit. In stoichiometry just start by teaching them mole - mole conversions. There is a nice flow chart that gives a bit of a road map for how to proceed from there for more complex calculations. Just take it one small step at a time and make sure you're doing formative assessment before moving on
Is it possible to get the presentations in either Google sheets or PowerPoint format?
Hi Valerie, I'm sorry but we do not have presentations available in those formats. We do have an activation code and instructions to download a free version of SMART Notebook here:
I hope this helps!
Are there lessons on measuring mass and volume or calculating density?
No, not explicitly as you might find in the beginning of a traditional chemistry course. There is a discussion of density in intermolecular forces unit in the section on states of matter and physical and chemical properties and density calculations are done in the gases unit.
