  • What's the Weakest Link? Helping AP® Chemistry Students Ask the Right Questions AP® Chemistry: What’s the weakest link? Or play the chemistry dating game: Will they hook up or break up? Students develop an analysis plan for identifying bond types. Use our featured kit as a starting point for independent student research. See a sample student question sheet from this kit’s activities. View »
  • A New Approach to Teaching Atomic Theory For chemistry teacher Siobhan Julian, teaching the history of atomic theory by lecture “was dry and tedious and boring for everyone involved.” Then she took a fresh approach—one that focuses on doing science to learn science history. View »
  • Law of Conservation of Mass Use this inquiry investigation as an introduction to the conservation of mass or as a confirmatory investigation. View »
  • Stoichiometry and Limiting Reactant Develop a model for a limiting reactant in a chemical reaction, analyze combining ratios for reactions, and write balanced equations for them. Activity supports NGSS instruction. View »
  • Balancing Chemical Equations This activity focuses on using models to help balance chemical equations and understand the law of conservation of mass. Includes a materials list and step-by-step instructions. View »
  • Energy Is Energy Energy that we use has to come from somewhere. Even though one form of energy may seem different from another form, it really is all the same. Energy is energy. View »
  • More Paper Clip Chemistry Who knew the common paper clip could be such a versatile teaching assistant? This activity uses several paper clip styles to help students understand empirical formulas and relative masses. View »
  • What's the Big Idea? Understanding the Laboratory Experience in the AP* Chemistry Curriculum If you teach AP* Chemistry, you’re already aware, or need to be, that changes to the course curriculum are here, which means you’ll probably have to change your classroom instruction. To help relieve your anxiety, here’s an overview of the course revisions, some important dates to remember, and 2 ways Carolina can help to ensure your success during this transition. View »
