Carolina Investigations® for AP® Chemistry: Chemical and Physical Changes Kit

Item # 840586 Exclusive

Addresses AP® Chemistry Big Idea 3 and Learning Objective 3.10. In this comprehensive laboratory exercise, students determine whether a process is a chemical or a physical change based on the production of heat, evolution of a gas, formation of a precipitate, or a color change. This exercise can be taught using either a guided or an inquiry activity. For 30 students working in pairs.

  • Aligned with Big Idea 3 and Learning Objective 3.10
  • Emphasizes Science Practices 1, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7

In this comprehensive laboratory exercise, students determine whether a process is a chemical or a physical change based on the production of heat, evolution of a gas, formation of a precipitate, or a color change. This exercise can be taught using either a guided or an inquiry activity. In the guided activity, students work at activity stations in rotation and classify each of the 15 processes they observe as either a chemical or a physical change.

In the inquiry activity, students observe 5 chemical and 5 physical changes, develop their own set of characteristics for each type of change, and then apply their rules to classify 10 additional unclassified processes. The inquiry activity also provides an opportunity for students to present their experimental design and results, reinforcing the practice of communicating findings. Detailed preparation and procedure notes guide the teacher through leading a successful inquiry activity and include a suggested rubric for assessing student performance.

Both activities include Big Idea assessment questions that follow the AP® Chemistry Exam free-response question format. In the Big Idea assessment, students diagram what happens at the atomic level when chemical and physical changes occur, and describe how to differentiate between those changes when a physical change mimics a chemical change (as in a color change).

This kit provides the following AP® Chemistry experiences: design a procedure to collect data, analyze data, observe chemical and physical changes, use models to explain observed results, and justify claims with evidence. The number and variety of processes students observe first-hand capture their interest and offer them a great opportunity to develop observation and analysis skills. Materials are sufficient for 30 students working in pairs. Digital teacher’s manual, included FREE with kit purchase, is a 12-month eBook license to the Chemical and Physical Changes teacher’s manual. You can also access the digital student guide for this kit for free at Carolina Science Online®.

Carolina Investigations® for AP® Chemistry: Kits That Support the AP® Curriculum

Carolina Investigations® for AP* Chemistry Kits

If you are an AP® teacher, you go out of your way to help your students perform successfully on the AP® Exam. Carolina Investigations® for AP® Chemistry Kits are specifically designed to help you do just that.

Carolina Investigations® for AP® Chemistry kits are specifically designed to meet the goals of the revised AP® Chemistry curriculum. That curriculum and our kit series center on 6 overarching BIG ideas, which provide the themes for an enhanced laboratory experience focused on inquiry-based, student-directed learning:

  • Big Idea 1: Atoms
  • Big Idea 2: Chemical and Physical Properties
  • Big Idea 3: Changes in Matter
  • Big Idea 4: Rates of Chemical Reactions
  • Big Idea 5: Thermodynamics
  • Big Idea 6: Chemical Equilibrium

The AP® Chemistry curriculum emphasizes science practices, which allow students to use the tools of scientists to discover, test, and explain natural phenomena. The science practices of AP® Chemistry are integrated into each lab in the Carolina Investigations® for AP® Chemistry series.

  • Science Practice 1: Modeling
  • Science Practice 2: Math
  • Science Practice 3: Scientific Questioning
  • Science Practice 4: Data Collection
  • Science Practice 5: Data Analysis
