Introduce or review the concepts in AP® Chemistry Big Idea 1: Atoms. Also suitable for general chemistry or freshman chemistry, this kit includes 4 demonstrations:

  • An exclusive digital kit component combines a virtual extraction of the copper in brass with hands-on spectroscopy to determine the percent composition.
  • An irradiated salt demo results in thermal fluorescence, illustrating electron interactions.
  • The oxidation of steel wool brings the law of conservation of mass to life.
  • Elements are isolated from compounds in a colorful electrolysis demo.

Make the 6 Big Ideas of AP® Chemistry come alive with Carolina Chemonstrations® for AP® Chemistry kits. Introduce or review the concepts of:

  • Atoms
  • Chemical and Physical Properties
  • Changes in Matter
  • Rates of Chemical Reactions
  • Thermodynamics
  • Chemical Equilibrium

Each engaging kit helps students understand the particle-level interactions that result in dramatic observed phenomena. Multiple demonstrations in each kit give students a framework for understanding AP® Chemistry concepts and help students move from the big picture to hard science. Students demonstrate their grasp of the Big Idea concepts underlying the demo through particle-level explanations, apply their knowledge to analyze the data presented, and think critically about the topics by answering Big Idea assessment questions. Materials in each kit are sufficient for each set of demos to be performed at least twice.
