Digital Age Skill: Chemistry - Demonstrating Gas Law
Chemistry - Demonstrating Gas Law
Description of the Lesson
Students will try different chemistry apps and show which app is best able to demonstrate each law or part of Kinetic Molecular Theory. They can set up students to demonstrate each law and evaluate the chemistry app based on the results they see on the app and their calculations using each gas law.
3c Curate information from digital resources using a variety of tools and methods to create collections of artifacts that demonstrate meaningful connections or conclusions.
SC.HS.5.5.D Refine the design of a chemical system by specifying a change in conditions that would produce increased amounts of products at equilibrium.

Lesson Design Reflection
|OBJECTIVES||Students will demonstrate kinetic molecular theory and gas law examples.|
|Engage or Lesson Hook||Students can explore on the PHET app, changing parameters and experimenting with different apps- students LOVED this part- they became accustomed to using the app and were better able to navigate it when given specific parameters||Use the PHET app: Gas Laws and States of Matter|
|Guided and Independent Practice||Demonstrate an example of properties of gases for students to see on app or computer.||Students work through different problems to demonstrate Kinetic molecular theory and gas laws using the PHET app|
|Share/Reflect/Assess and Extend or WRAP-UP/Assessment||Teacher sends a survey to determine which app better demonstrates each portion of kinetic molecular theory and gas laws||Students assess which app better demonstrates each example of kinetic molecular theory and examples of gas laws.|
