I am very fortunate to teach the students of this community. They are motivated, inquisitive, and really enjoy collaborating when given a project. Over the past year, parents have generously donated towards my vision of introducing STEM-based chemistry and biology labs involving amazing technology that is used to gather data.
The students appreciate the opportunity to use the STEM lab equipment because it allows them to use technology while collaborating and using critical thinking to produce results which help prepare them for the future.
This is my first teaching chemistry AP and the students really need lab practice that connects to the main ideas within the AP exam. I am requesting for a well-known lab demo book titled, A Demo A Day, and three kinetics labs. Both of these will get the everyone more confident in my inherently rigorous course.
Students will experience dramatic demonstrations introducing AP Chemistry Big Idea 4 or to review factors affecting reaction rates.
Students observe the catalyzed combustion of sugar and the classic Blue Bottle and Traffic Light demos. They then analyze data from the demos to show their grasp of how several factors affect reaction rates. Particle level explanations and Big Idea questions help students prepare for the AP Chemistry Exam.
