Background Information Prerequisite knowledge should include nomenclature balancing chemical equations. Mole to mole and mass to mole calculation It is important that students understand the law of conservation of mass Students should also be skilled in using ratios and conversion factors in calculations.
Curriculum Expectations Overall expectations: D2. Investigate quantitative relationships in chemical reactions, and solve related problems D3. Demonstrate an understanding of the mole concept and its significance to the quantitative analysis of chemical reactions
Specific expectations D2.1Use appropriate terminology related to quantities in chemical reactions, including, but not limited to: stoichiometry, percentage yield, limiting reagent, mole, and atomic mass [C] D2.5 Calculate the corresponding mass, or quantity in moles or molecules, for any given reactant or product in a balanced chemical equation as well as for any other reactant or product in the chemical reaction [AI] D2.6 Solve problems related to quantities in chemical reactions by performing calculations involving percentage yield and limiting reagents [AI] D3.4 Explain the quantitative relationships expressed in a balanced chemical equation, using appropriate units of measure (e.g., moles, grams, atoms, ions, molecules)
Place in the Curriculum Strand B Matter, Chemical Trends, Chemical Bonding Strand C Chemical Reaction Strand D Quantities in Chemical Reactions Strand E Solutions and Solubility Strand F- Gases and Atmospheric Chemistry
Placement Within the Unit Counting Atoms and Molecules: The Mole The Avogadro Constant and the Mole Molar Mass Chemical Proportions in Compounds Percentage Composition Empirical Formula of a Compound Molecular Formula of a Compound Quantities in Chemical Reactions Stoichiometry Limiting Reactant Percentage Yield
Misconceptions / Learning Difficulties When the mass of both reactants is given students have difficulty recognizing that one of the masses is limiting and the other mass is in excess. randomly select one of the given masses as limiting or excess assume that the masses are in the correct mole ratios students assume the smaller mass is the limiting reagent. Need to point out these are not trick questions Important to stress the common steps in converting masses into amounts in moles in order to relate to mole ratios in balanced equations.
Demonstrate Reaction Which reactant is limiting and which is in excess reactant?
Demonstrate Mass to Mole Relationship Use copper chloride reacting with Aluminum to illustrate a mass to mole relationship Container Al:CuCl2 Ratio Mass of Al Foil/g AControl0.00 B 1:1 mass ratio 2.06 C 1:1 mole ratio 2.06 D 2:3 mass ratio 1.37 E2:3 mole ratio 0.27
Misconceptions If reactants are in the same physical state the reaction reaches completion when both reactants are totally converted Or If the reactants are in two different physical states (solid and liquid) the reaction reaches completion when the entire solid is consumed.
Reaction of Mg with HCl
Misconceptions Students have limited view of chemical system since they have been taught to consider a reaction system as: reactants -> products rewrite equation as: Reactants -> Products + excess reactant
Supporting Diverse Student Needs Challenge gifted students -How many grams of a particular starting material will remain at the end of a reaction? Encourage gifted students to develop their own methods for solving problems - do not follow given format ELL students have difficulty understanding verbal explanations - may benefit from writing out the thought process used in solving sample problems. Students that required more support may be given more scaffolding and support in questions. Have students make common sense prediction when solving problems.
Day 1 Lesson SequenceTeaching StrategiesLearning Styles (MI)Assessment Take up homework, Review mass to mass calculation Use hot dogs and hot dog bun analogy to introduce concept of limiting reactants Demo- Na – Water rxn Have students provide alternative analogies Copper chloride and Aluminum lab Teacher directed – student participate Discussion Demo Think-pair-share Demo Visual, Auditory (Logical/ Mathematical) Auditory (Verbal/ Linguistic, Logical/ Mathematical) Visual, Auditory (visual/ spatial) Auditory (Verbal/ Linguistic, Intrapersonal, Interpersonal) Visual, Auditory (visual/ spatial, Logical/ Mathematical) For learning Homework check, assess student’s answers as homework is being taken up
Day 1 Lesson SequenceTeaching StrategiesLearning Styles (MI)Assessment Have students brainstorm practical reasons for having limiting reactants Have students conduct baking soda and vinegar lab (or Mg and HCl) lab Discussion Guided inquiry Auditory (Verbal/ Linguistic) Kinesthetic (kinesthetic, visual/spatial) Exit pass: For the reaction of copper chloride and aluminum which of the statements is true and explain why: Equal masses of reactants will react completely in a chemical equation. Chemicals react based on mole ratios found in a chemical equation. Chemicals react based on mass ratios found in a chemical equation. Equal moles of reactants will react completely in a chemical reaction.
Day 2 Lesson Sequence Teaching Strategies Learning Styles (MI)Assessment Solve sample problems Provide students with a flow chart to follow Start with balanced chemical reactions that has reactants in a 1:1 mole ratio Progress to more difficult sample problems Direct instructionVisual, Auditory (visual/ spatial, logical/ mathematical) For learning things I know about stoichiometry things I am getting better at thing I still need help with......
Days 3,4 and 5 Lesson SequenceTeaching StrategiesLearning Styles (MI)Assessment Day 3 Extra practice Have groups display answers on white boards – gallery walk Cooperative grouping Visual, Auditory (visual /spatial, Logical/ Mathematical) As learning and for learning Assess student’s cooperative skills, participation skills and answers to questions Day 4 Quiz on limiting and excess reactants Percent Yield Calculations Direct Instruction Visual, Auditory (Logical/ Mathematical) Of learning – mark quiz Day 5 Conduct Limiting and excess lab with percent yield calculation Guided inquiryVisual, Kinesthetic (visual / spatial, kinesthetic) Of learning- collect and mark lab
Applications and Societal Implications Careers in Chemistry – Chemical Engineer Cooking recipes, industrial reactions, prescription drug dosages, manufacturing, building (constructions) The amount of carbon on earth is the ultimate limiting reagent for the number of people the earth can have and in the sense that carbon is our "food"... the land area of the earth is a "limiting reagent" that will limit our population before carbon does....

Advanced Preparation Day 1 Refer to Interactive Demonstrations for Mole Ratios and Limiting Reagents (annotated reference 1) and prepare material for the lab accordingly. Refer to How Big Is the Balloon? Stoichiometry Using Baking Soda and Vinegar (annotated reference 6) and prepare material for the lab accordingly. Day 5 Refer to pg 165 of the Nelson teacher’s resource for percentage yield in a chemical reaction lab and prepare material for the lab accordingly.
Safety Considerations Remember to always wear safety goggles. Reaction of Na with water demo Never use a piece of sodium larger than a ½ pea r. The reaction should be carried out behind a clear safety barrier or at a distance from the students Reaction of Copper (II) chloride with Aluminum Copper(II) chloride is toxic by ingestion and irritating to skin Aluminum will also react with the solution to produce hydrogen gas. Flames should not be used in this investigation Reaction of baking soda with vinegar Avoid getting baking soda or vinegar in eyes
