Due to an unexpected delay, I will post next on Tuesday, October 28th -- the focus will be Ionic Formula Writing -- Part II.
In my lab book “Chemistry on a Budget”, there are several labs focusing on The Mole Concept:
- "Catching Moles” which is good for grasping the concept as it develops and proves the utility of relative mass;
- “Moles in Your Name?” using chalk, the blackboard and a balance; and
- “Molar Volume” collecting a gas sample and gathering the measurements needed to calculate useful information.
This book contains 13 labs using consumable materials purchased from local stores. There are two versions of each lab, one with a ten-question conclusion and one with directions for a full lab report. This way the teacher has the option! Each lab is two pages to allow for one two-sided handout.
I have just added a Topic List to help you to find past Blog entries you're looking for. I hope it helps!
Have a good weekend!
