Molecule Monday is an opportunity to engage students in the chemistry of everyday life.
We all know how fundamental the mole concept is for stoichiometry. This year I brainstormed ways to really make it stick. I decided to do multiple mini-practicums, one for each learning target of the mole unit. I am sharing brief descriptions of the mini-practicums I did for each learning target.
Many researchers have attempted to characterize the knowledge of an expert teacher, and it's complex, to say the least.
I have an extreme fascination with the periodic table! And, so does my colleague, Mike. Let me tell you some ways we are celebrating the International Year of the Periodic Table.
