Inquiries in Science®: Introducing Organic Chemistry Kit

2 Items Exclusive
$62.25 - $194.95 View Details

Students explore the chemistry of carbon using a variety of modeling methods. Based on the models created, they learn about molecular shape, stereochemistry, isomerism, and different classes of organic compounds. A series of exercises help students relate organic molecule structures to their functional applications. Students then design and conduct their own experiment to evaluate the efficiency of synthetic and natural hydrophilic and hydrophobic polymers in cleaning up an oil spill.

A series of exercises help students relate organic molecule structures to their functional applications. In the final activity, students design and conduct their own experiment to evaluate the efficiency of synthetic and natural hydrophilic and hydrophobic polymers in cleaning up an oil spill. This kit can help you teach the cross-cutting concepts of Patterns, Structure and Function, and Models. Kit contains materials for 30 students working in groups of 3.
