Carolina Chemonstrations® for AP® Chemistry: Big Idea 3—Changes in Matter Kit

Item # 840344 Exclusive

Students observe thought-provoking macroscopic chemical changes with this kit’s 2 demonstrations. Use the kit to introduce Big Idea 3 or to review chemical reactions in preparation for the AP® Chemistry Exam. A decomposition reaction results in “instant fog,” and a unique conductivity activity monitors an acid-base titration. Written for use with the Audible Conductivity Kit (item #840895, sold separately). Materials are sufficient for the 2 demonstrations to be performed twice.



In stock and available to ship.

Introduce or review the concepts in AP® Chemistry Big Idea 3: Changes in Matter. Also suitable for general chemistry or freshman chemistry, this kit includes 2 demonstrations:

  • A decomposition reaction produces copious amounts of water vapor, which condenses and is observed as “fog”
  • An audible conductivity activity monitors both an acid-base neutralization reaction and a precipitation reaction

Written for use with the Audible Conductivity Kit (item #840895, sold separately).

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.
