Lab: Ionic Formulas

by Robert Lucas

This resource contains a lab on ionic formulas. From the intro: "In this lab you will practice writing the formulas of various ionic compounds. You will also make and observe different ionic compounds. There are nine different solutions available. You can mix any two which you feel will make an ionic compound. To do this, place 2-3 drops of the first solution on the overhead, then add 2-3 drops of the second solution onto the first solution."

Salmon Sheet

by Robert Lucas

This resource is a 2 page, heavily formatted cheat-sheet covering: monatomic ions, polyatomic ions (divided into anions and cations), acids, hydrocarbon stems, etc. I'm not sure why it's called the "salmon sheet," except that it has a picture of a salmon at the top. An inside joke perhaps? But it's referenced as the "salmon sheet" in some other files, so I'll leave it. This resource is part of the Chemistry course which contains units on Lab Setup and Safety; Nomenclature; Chemical Reactions and Balancing; Metric Systems & Conversions; Periodic Table and Trends; Atomic Structure; Nuclear Chemistry; Acids, Bases, & Salts; Bonding; Percent Composition; Solutions, Molarity, and Concentrations; Stoichiometry; Energy; Gas Laws; Reaction Rates and Equilibrium; Electron Configuration; and Redox Reactions.

Element Riddles

by Robert Lucas

This resource covers 46 elements described using puns and other wordplay. e.g. "A sheepish element" or "nickname for dad." Give them to students along with a periodic table, and have them solve the riddles. It's a good way to preview the periodic table, or to keep on hand in case a lesson runs short. This resource is part of the Chemistry course which contains units on Lab Setup and Safety; Nomenclature; Chemical Reactions and Balancing; Metric Systems & Conversions; Periodic Table and Trends; Atomic Structure; Nuclear Chemistry; Acids, Bases, & Salts; Bonding; Percent Composition; Solutions, Molarity, and Concentrations; Stoichiometry; Energy; Gas Laws; Reaction Rates and Equilibrium; Electron Configuration; and Redox Reactions.
