Reflection: Developing a Conceptual Understanding Final Review Lab# 1- Acids, Bases, Solutions, and Gases - Section 1: Introduction


As a way to help my students review for exams I have come up with the notion of a review lab.  A review lab is basically a normal that I would do with students, but adding lots of review types of questions to the lab.  Therefore, as students are doing the procedures of the lab they are also reviewing various concepts.  For example they may measure some salt, but then have to do a conversion with what they measured or name the salt compound.  

I find that doing this type of review is much more engaging than having students simply sit down and work on a review packet.  It encourages students to work as a group (which they are used to when they are in a lab group), and motivates the students who may normally find simple review questions boring.

This type of activity is also nice so that I can sneak in a lab which I may not have had time for during the normal school year.  For example this review lab involves students doing titrations which I did not teach this year with the water quality unit, but now they have a chance to do this fun activity.

Final Review Lab# 1- Acids, Bases, Solutions, and Gases

Unit 9: Unit 10: Nuclear Chemistry and Final Exam Review
Lesson 6 of 8

Objective: Students will be able to solve problems related to various semester 2 concepts through performing a final review titration and gas lab.

Big Idea: Bases and Acids react together to make a neutral solution and gases expand when heated and compress when cooled.
