Welcome to the Chemical Education Xchange (ChemEd X)! We hope to strengthen the community of chemistry educators by providing learning resources and forums for discussion and collaboration on our interactive platform. Take a look, and join in.
Check out the schedule for upcoming ChemEd X Talks and ChemEd X ChemBasics Talks along with recordings of past events.
Early Middle College High Schools are growing in popularity. They are an alternative public high school program where students earn up to 60 college credits while completing their high school diploma. Here, the author describes some lessons learned while teaching at an early college programs that help prepare students for college and careers.
This 2-hour virtual workshop demonstrates how to use climate science concepts as a context for topics already in covered in your courses. The workshop will explore how incorporating climate science in your classroom extends to community effects.
The major component of a non-carbonated drink such as KoolAid or a similar beverage is usually a fruit acid, either citric acid or malic acid. The titratable acid (H+) concentration of such drinks has been found to be in the range of 0.02 to 0.04 M. A weak acid-strong base titration of these drinks with 0.1 M NaOH solution is feasible as a student exercise. Phenolphthalein indicator may be employed so long as the drink is not intensely coloured. The use of such drinks as reagents is safe, convenient, and inexpensive. Experiment instructions are included.
