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.

ISTE Standard

3c Curate information from digital resources using a variety of tools and methods to create collections of artifacts that demonstrate meaningful connections or conclusions.

NE Standard

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

Lesson Design: 

 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.
