Abstract:
Educators have used visual aids in teaching students for many years. Demonstrations are a form of visual aid that allow students to see what they are learning in person. Four demonstrations with basis in fundamental high school chemistry concepts (excited states of electron, reaction kinetics, reduction reactions, properties of bases) were selected and tested. From the initial tests, the demonstrations were either changed or optimized to produce a better demonstration. The demonstrations were then filmed to facilitate their use in classrooms that may not have the capacity to perform the demonstrations in person. The videos are to be distributed freely in two separate forms with one designed for educators and another designed for students. The focus of the completed video demonstrations was both the chemistry behind the reactions and to make connections with the real world from the chemistry concepts. The demonstrations developed in this lab are ready for use in high school classrooms or on websites and will help to improve chemistry education in schools nationwide.
