In this unit, students learn the mathematical tool of dimensional analysis, alternately called the factor-label method. Students also explore how to predict and measure the outcome of a reaction.
Stoichiometry is introduced in this segment, and the students discuss the basics of dimensional analysis.
This segment examines the mole and Avagadro's number. The students continue their exploration of dimensional analysis.
The topics found within this segment include converting moles to liters as well as calculating percent composition, empirical formulas, and molecular formulas.
This segment explores stoichiometric calculations and mole ratios.
This segment explores limiting reactants as we watch the students perform a lab with s'mores.
In this segment, the students discuss the ratios they have calculated in a rocket combustion lab.
The students analyze data from the rocket combustion lab started in the previous segment and hear from special guest Dr. David Gottfried about nanotechnology.
