Stoichiometry of Climate Change
Unit 6 Overview (overview coming Feb 2020)
Students review conversions and use these conversions to answer questions about which fuels produce the most energy and least pollutants per gram of substance. Students continue to practice their stoiciometry skills throughout the unit. The unit culminates with students engineering a hot/cold pack.
Day 1 - Anchoring event: How do I make the biggest explosion?
Day 2 - Review conversions and introduce new ones
Day 3 - Micromole rockets
Day 4 - Modeling two step conversions: Which fuel makes the most CO2?
Day 5 - Practicing two step conversions: How many grams does it take to light a bulb?
Day 6 & 7 - Target stoichiometry lab
