Writing Balanced Chemical Equations

The Writing Balanced Chemical Equations Concept Builder provides learners with experience writing and balancing chemical equations if given a verbal description of a reaction. Learners must use an understanding of the five basic reaction types and be able to write the chemical formula for compounds when given their name. There are a total of 36 questions organized into 18 different Question Groups and spread across the three different activities. The activities are scaffolded with each activity building on the previous activity. Question-specific help is provided for each of the 18 situations. The built-in score-keeping makes this Concept Builder a perfect candidate for a classroom activity.
