ACS Chem Club

Do you or anyone you know advise an ACS Chem Club? I have heard of it over the past few years, but I have been busy and didn’t want to add another thing to my plate. When I found out that there are no requirements of what or how much we have to do as a group, I decided that I could give it a try. I appreciate that ACS provides some great resources. You can find many ideas on the ACS web site.

Homogeneous Solutions using PhET Interactive Simulations and labs

This is a series of experiments, PhET Interactive Simulation activities, and clicker questions to relate macroscopic and molecular representations of homogenenous solutions. Graphing skills are also used.

Time required: 

This is a combination of activities that will take several class periods or a few class periods and homework if students have computer access outside of classtime.
