Check out this exciting, in-person, NSF-funded, summer 2022 professional development institute for high school chemistry teachers. Priority application deadline: March 11, 2022.
Solutions are all around us in life and chemistry class! On February 10th, 2022, Kristen Vanderveen discussed solubility curves, molarity calculations, using particulate level modeling and simulations, making real world connections and so much more in this ChemBasics Talk. View a recording of her presentation and access materials she has suggested here.
Balloons that inflate using carbon dioxide produced from the reaction of citric acid and sodium hydrogen carbonate can be used to demonstrate a number of aspects of chemistry. Gas laws were used with the balloons to illustrate limiting reactants, molar mass of gases, and rockets. The endothermic reaction in the balloon was visualized with an infrared camera, and the Green Chemistry aspects of these balloons were considered.

Mastery-based grading involves assessing student mastery of a defined set of learning objectives. In this virtual talk the practical implementation of additional assessments, outcomes of student achievement, and lessons learned will be discussed.
Solutions are all around us in life and chemistry class! The presenter for our next ChemBasics Talk, Kristen Vanderveen, will discuss solubility curves, molarity calculations, using particulate level modeling and simulations, making real world connections and so much more. Register for this (FREE) hour long Zoom meeting to be held February 10th, 2022, at 8pm EST.
Can you use your knowledge of chemistry to figure out what is going on in Chemical Mystery #19?
The unspoken word of chemistry: Non-stoichiometric. Stoichiometry and non-stoichiometry are concepts that combine to make a solution that does not have to be difficult to understand.
This is a simple small-scale distillation that can be used several different ways.
Chemical Reactions is a topic that unites a number of skills from formula writing, balancing equations, predicting products and solubility to name a few. On January 13th, 2022, Sarah English shared her unit covering chemical reactions in this ChemBasics Talk. You can view a recording of her presentation and access materials she has suggested.
