Description

  • Use models to investigate different classes of hydrocarbons
  • Explore newly developed polymers used in oil spill cleanup
  • Relate the function of plastics to their molecular structure
Grades 9–12.  Students initially explore the chemistry of carbon by using a variety of modeling methods to build different classes of organic compounds. Based on the models created, they learn about molecular shape, stereochemistry, isomerism, and how to identify and name different classes of organic compounds. Next, a series of exercises (such as choosing an appropriate biofuel or creating a certain scent) helps students relate the structure of organic molecules to their functional applications. In the final activity, students investigate the physical and chemical characteristics of recycled plastics and design their own plastics to serve specific purposes.

Part of the Inquiries in Science™ series. Materials are sufficient for 30 students working in groups of 3.
