Calculate the percent yield for a reaction using lab data
Practice balancing skeleton equations and writing and balancing equations from words
Practice classifying reactions
Observation of reactants and products for 7 reactions in the lab and analysis of these to classify the reaction as to type
Use of the activity series and the periodic chart to determine the result of single replacement reactions
Determine whether a double displacement reaction will occur using precipitation rules and neutralization reactions
Practice solving stoichiometric problems
Coop groups--peer tutor stoichiometric problems
Determine the limiting reagent in a stoiciometric problem
Using the limiting reagent to solve for theoretical yield
Calculating percent yield
Demo: Electrolysis and synthesis of water
Demo: Combustion reactions 1 liter and whoosh bottle
Demo: Reaction of Zn and HCl students will calculate the theoretical volume of hydrogen gas which should be produced, the reaction will be done and the hydrogen balloon ignited
