Carolina Investigations® for AP® Chemistry: Factors Affecting Reaction Rates Kit

Item # 840590 Exclusive

Addresses AP® Chemistry Big Idea 4 and Learning Objective 4.1. Investigate factors that affect reaction rate using the iodine clock reaction. Change temperature, concentration, and surface area of solid reactants and add a catalyst to observe changes in reaction rates. The iodine clock reaction provides an easy visual cue to measure reaction times. Reaction rates are explained using physical phenomena, such as molecular collisions. Materials are sufficient for 30 students in teams of 3.

  • Aligned with Big Idea 4 and Learning Objective 4.1
  • Emphasizes Science Practices 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7

Investigate factors that affect the rate of a reaction using the iodine clock reaction. Teach this laboratory experience using either the guided activity or inquiry activity. In the guided activity, students measure how quickly clear, colorless solutions of reactants turn deep blue when the temperature, concentration, and surface area of solid reactants are changed. The change in reaction time when a catalyst is added is also determined. In the inquiry activity, students design an experiment to determine the effect of changing temperature, concentration, surface area of solid reactants, and the presence of a catalyst on the rate of the iodine clock reaction. The inquiry activity provides an opportunity for students to present their experiment design and results, reinforcing the practice of communicating findings. Detailed preparation and procedure notes guide the teacher through leading a successful inquiry exercise, including a suggested rubric for assessing student performance.

Both activities include Big Idea assessment questions that follow the format of the AP® Chemistry Exam free-response questions. In the Big Idea assessment, students draw an energy diagram to show how a catalyst lowers activation energy and predict how changes in concentration and reactant surface area will affect the reaction rate of a single replacement reaction in aqueous solution. Students also predict the effect of increasing pressure on the reaction rate of 2 gases. To answer these questions, students reference physical models, such as the increased number of collisions of molecules with increased temperature.

Provides the following AP® Chemistry experiences: design a procedure to collect data, analyze data, explain phenomena based on physical evidence, and make predictions about natural phenomena based on scientific models. The use of the iodine clock reaction gives this experiment visual interest and a precise way to measure reaction rate. Materials are sufficient for 30 students in teams of 3. Digital teacher’s manual, included FREE with kit purchase, is a 12-month eBook license to the Factors Affecting Reaction Rates 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
  • Science Practice 6: Using Scientific Explanations and Theories
  • Science Practice 7: Connecting Concepts

All Carolina Investigations® for AP® Chemistry kits offer:

  • Two teaching approaches: a guided activity and an inquiry activity
  • Big Idea assessment questions modeled on the AP® Chemistry Exam’s free-response questions
  • Detailed inquiry activity preparation and procedure steps
  • Inquiry activity experimental design template based on the scientific method
  • Inquiry activity grading rubric

Carolina Investigations® for AP® Chemistry kits are designed to help AP® teachers help their students achieve exceptional results by:

  • Facilitating the successful integration of inquiry-based learning into the laboratory experience
  • Using teacher-developed and field-tested activities that are designed for the AP® classroom
  • Cultivating students’ conceptual understanding of the topics covered, while allowing them to draw upon real-world connections
