Title Reactions and Rates 1 Introduction to reactions (Inquiry Based)
Description This includes a series of demonstrations and an inquiry based lab. My students will have done an activity with Salts and Solubility. The learning goals are: Students will be able to: Describe reactions in terms of a simple molecular model; Describe reactions in terms of molecular models with illustrations; Differentiate between dissolving and reacting; Use the molecular model to explain why reactions are not instantaneous; Use the molecular model to explain why reactions have less than 100% yields.
