LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Students will be able to:
  1. Recognize evidence of a chemical change
  2. Represent chemical reactions with word equations
  3. Represent chemical reactions with chemical equations
  4. Balance chemical equations
  5. Classify chemical reactions according to a simple four type system
  6. Identify the characteristics of different classes of chemical reaction
  7. Write complete ionic equations for reactions in aqueous solution
  8. Write net ionic equations for reactions in aqueous solution
  9. Predict whether reactions in aqueous solution will produce a precipitate

This unit can be self paced - that means you can work at a faster pace if you are confident and feel you have developed a sound understanding of the concepts.

LESSON 1: INDICATORS OF REACTION

Complete the experiment to determine the indicators that a chemical reaction has occurred.Complete the investigation by designing experiments to figure out the source of the heat, the gas and the color change.


LESSON 2: BALANCING EQUATIONS

Today there will be a review presentation on balancing chemical equations. You will then go to the Tutorial below to re-inforce your learning and finish up with some on line practice on balancing.

If you are feeling confident, see how you do when you have limited time to balance equations using the link below!
Timed balancing and even more practice if you need it. More balancing practice

LESSON 3: TYPES OF REACTION

A short presentation on the four basic types of chemical reaction.

Use the printed handout (CARTOON CHEMISTRY) to check your understanding of the four basic types of reaction.

Complete the experiment on the different types of reaction.

Use the worksheet to check your understanding.

Now practice what you have learned by completing the following online practice activity.
Practice Synthesis Reactions

LESSON 4: SINGLE REPLACEMENT REACTION

Complete Experiment 2 Single Replacement Reactions.

Complete the worksheet Chemistry: Identifying Chemical Reactions to consolidate your knowledge and check for understanding


LESSON 5: DOUBLE REPLACEMENT AND PRECIPITATION REACTIONS

Watch the simulation of a double replacement reaction Simulation of double displacement
Complete the experiment Observing Precipitation Reactions


Practice writing precipitation reactions.
