Welcome to Chemistry Matters – a new digital series for high school chemistry from Georgia Public Broadcasting! The series is comprised of 12 units of study divided into segments. Under each segment you will find support materials designed to enhance student understanding of the content.
Students identify the primary indicators of chemical change and learn about the law of conservation of matter. This unit also covers balanced chemical equations and showing reactants and products of chemical reactions.
Students discover how solvents dissolve ionic and covalent solutes and learn how to measure solution concentration by mass percent, molarity, and molality. This unit also covers colligative properties.
In this unit, students learn about kinetics, which is the study of factors that affect the rate of chemical reactions. Students also investigate collision theory and the five components of kinetic molecular theory in gas.
