Acid Base Speed Dating

The unit of acids and bases is difficult for most students in Advanced Placement Chemistry. The variety of various calculations can be overwhelming. The Acid Base Speed Dating Activity engages students in completing a series of problems. Each student is assigned a specific solution and then determines their individual pH to complete their personal “Solution Biography.” Then the speed dating begins! For each date, the students need to find a specific match and determine their combined pH value.

Chemistree Holiday

My ChemClub students came to my room for a holiday celebration today. We made a batch of sea foam candy, an Elephant Toothpaste Christmas Tree, and marbled gift tags.
