The grade 11 chemistry class learned about limiting reagents by comparing chemical products to banana splits. By observing how the products of a reaction are limited by the reagent that runs out first (like the bananas), students made their way through challenging chemistry problems—and of course, a perfectly balanced banana split.
The grade 11 chemistry class investigated the properties of various substances when added to water. Students obtained results for characteristics like solubility and conductivity and then attributed these properties to ionic or molecular substances. The knowledge gained from this lab will be invaluable for future studies in chemical bonding.
