Please note that the Workshop Syllabus is subject to change.
This workshop will introduce how to calculate rate laws by interpreting experimental data. Students will determine how fast chemical reactions proceed based on order of the reaction and classify reactions into zeroth, first, and second order.
Students will be introduced to the equilibrium constant, the equation used to determine equilibrium constants, the gas equilibrium constant, and applying Le Chatelier’s principle to equilibrium constants.
Session 3 & 4:Study Hall/Exam Review
Bring your study materials to prepare for your upcoming exams! Or bring your first exam to review the difficult problems!
Sessions 5 & 6:Acids & Bases
These workshops will review and apply equilibrium concepts, ICE tables, solubility, buffers, types of acids, ICF tables, and methods on how to differentiate between each topic.
Session 7:Titrations & Buffers
In this session, students will learn how to construct acid/base reactions through titrations and how to construct ICE tables to determine concentration of specific reactants and products. They will focus on identifying what a buffer is, when a solution is a buffer, and how to calculate the pH of a solution after titration.
Using the concept of equilibrium, this workshop will offer a comprehensive understanding of the common ion effect, selective precipitation, and solubility equilibria as it relates to the qualitative analysis of buffer solutions.
Session 9:Exam Review
Bring your second exam to review the difficult problems in preparation for the last few weeks of the semester
Session 10:Solutions and Colligative Properties
Colligative properties depend on the concentration of a solute rather than the identity. This session focuses on determining and converting between different concentrations, as well as applying these concentrations to each colligative property.
This workshop will focus on the concept of redox reactions, galvanic cells will be used to derive cell potentials, and both reduction potentials and free energy changes will also be discussed.
Session 12 & 13:Study Hall
Bring your study materials to prepare for your upcoming exams!
