In this lab, students connect the workings of an electrochemical cell in the lab with the symbolic equations used in electrochemistry and manipulate a model representing the particulate level of what is happening during the electrochemical process. Although this lab was previously highlighted on ChemEd X, there are now virtual options offered!

Many of us have molecular kits we only use once a year. Dust them off and find new lessons to use them in!
This article shares a reflection of my daughter's experience in hybrid AP Chemistry from the perspective of a mother.
Free AP Chemistry prep exams are available for teachers. This is part of a research study occurring through the 2020-2021 year. Enroll today!
Many teachers have students draw models and diagrams to help them illustrate how matter behaves. Teachers can uncover and address possible misconceptions quickly using this strategy. The author describes how to create interactive particle diagram activities that are easy for students to use online. This strategy is applicable to almost any particle diagram and should be useful for teachers during virtual lessons.
Card sorts can be used to quickly assess student understanding. The author has modified two card sorts on photoelectron spectroscopy and intermoleculer forces for use either remotely or in a paperless classroom.
These are a few reflections from an AP Chemistry Exam reader after reading the 2020 online AP Chemistry Exam.
The APsolute RecAP’s philosophy is to maximize students’ understanding and minimize their need for memorization. The episodes follow the updated CED and each episode is under 10 minutes in length, so students are able to squeeze in a quick, effective review session even if they don’t have a ton of time to do so.
The mission of APTeach is to create a collaborative community where teachers can share ideas about student miconceptions, pedagogy, improving student understanding, and implementing best practices for teaching chemistry.
