The qualitative analysis of organic functional groups can be daunting for a lot of students because of the sheer number of observations and reagents they are required to memorize. The Organic Qualitative Analysis (OQA) is a high resolution MIND MAP tool that summarizes observable reactions e.g. addition of bromine to phenol results in a white ppt. OQA contains: 1) A completed MIND MAP - teachers can use this as a reference to plan their class. 2) Blank MIND MAP - students can print this and update it accordingly as they learn the qualitative analysis tests. It can also be used in class activity. Teachers can also use this as an assessment to test students’ understanding of the reaction. The paid version contains quite a lot more observable reactions that include functional groups such as ketone, aldehyde, methyl ketone and methyl alcohol.

Complete Electrochemistry Handout

(0)
Electrochemistry is a concept in chemistry that can be frustratingly confusing for many students. The common mistakes include, but not limited to wrong determination of cathode and anode, incorrect use of reduction potential and incorrect calculation of the electrochemical cell potential. The Complete Electrochemistry Handout (CEH) is specially written and designed to assist students in understanding the electrochemistry concept better while avoiding the common mistakes listed above. CEH features COLOURED DIAGRAM, REDOX DECISION TREE, succinct explanations and multiple EXERCISE QUESTIONS to enforce the concepts. CEH is also great as a revision material for students. CEH consists of two files: 1) Blank CEH - instructor can give a copy to their students in a lesson and go through the handout with them. The questions in CEH can be given to the students as homework or in-class exercise to further enforce the concept learnt. 2) Filled CEH - instructor can use this as a reference while going through the CEH in class with their students. Instructor can also give this to the students as a solution. CEH features the following concepts: 1) Half-cell and cathode/anode 2) Determination of electrochemical cell 3) Utilization of reduction potential 4) Voltaic vs electrolytic cells 5) REDOX Decision Tree - determination of reducing and oxidizing power 6) Nernt’s equation and its use

The qualitative analysis of organic functional groups can be daunting for a lot of students because of the sheer number of observations and reagents they are required to memorize. The Organic Qualitative Analysis (OQA) is a high resolution MIND MAP tool that summarizes all reagents (2,4-DNPH, Tollens', Fehling's, etc) used to determine the following functional groups: Alcohol Aldehyde Ketone Methyl ketone Methyl alcohol OQA also includes observable reactions involving phenol, phenylamine, acyl chloride and methanoic acid. OQA is designed not only to help students to memorize the reagents and observations, but also to aid them in avoiding common pitfalls e.g. reaction of 2,4-DNPH and ester will not happen, but many students make the mistake of thinking it will happen. OQA gives a clear and succinct picture of the qualitative analysis tests and how they are related. OQA is also a great tool for self-revision for the students and for the teachers to wrap up the organic component of the syllabus OQA contains: 1) A high resolution completed MIND MAP - teachers can use this as a reference to plan their class. 2) A high resolution blank MIND MAP - students can print this and update it accordingly as they learn the qualitative analysis tests. It can also be used in class activity. Teachers can also use this as an assessment to test students’ understanding of the reaction. Recommended page size: A3

Determination of the Oxidizing and Reducing Agent Using the Reduction Potential

(0)
Students are often confused on how to utilize the list of reduction potential given to them. A lot of the time, they are unable to effectively use the reduction potential to determine which of the reactants is the oxidizing agent and which one is the reducing agent. Enter the REDOX Decision Tree (RDT). This resource is FREE and designed to aid students on how to utilize the reduction potential in determining the stronger oxidizing or reducing agent. RDT consists of a blank decision tree and example question as well as the filled page. An instructor can give the blank page and use the filled page as a reference while going through it in class. RDT is included in the COMPLETE ELECTROCHEMISTRY HANDOUT to assist any chemistry instructor in teaching the electrochemistry component of the chemistry syllabus.

The skill to pipette solution accurately is critical for chemistry learners to obtain an accurate experimental result in any laboratory work and assessment. The ability to pipette is part of the requirement for the Cambridge Assessment International Education (CAIE) syllabus (9701). Paper 3 - Advanced Practical Skill sanctioned by CAIE regularly tests this skill. Thus, it is essential for chemistry learners to master this technique. Most chemistry learners find it challenging to master the skill to pipette solution accurately. This guide provides a detailed step-by-step instruction, with high-resolution pictures, to aid laboratory instructor in teaching an accurate pipetting technique. Instructor can give this as a hand-out to their learners to refer to while they demonstrate the technique. Learners can keep referring back to this guide while they are practicing to refine their pipetting technique after the demonstration. This guide uses 25-mL pipette as illustration, but the technique is applicable to different-size pipettes including the Mohr pipette. Equipment needed to conduct the lesson: 25-mL pipette (other size is applicable) Pipette filler 125-mL conical flask (other size is applicable) 125-mL beaker (other size is applicable) This guide contains: Step-by-Step Guide to Pipette Accurately_highres.pdf Step-by-Step Guide to Pipette Accurately_lowres.pdf
