This month’s featured module is “Compounds and Stoichiometry.” The module was developed by Dr. Lorrie Comeford, reviewed, and published to the Resource Portal in the Summer of 2017. The “Compounds and Stoichiometry” module was designed for a course in General Chemistry I, which is the first chemistry course taken by chemistry and biology majors.
The module focuses on 11 learning goals. The learning goals are:
- Identify and name ionic and molecular compounds
- Use the formula of a compound to calculate a molar mass
- Use molar mass to calculate the mass, number of moles, or number of molecules of a compound
- Identify reactants and products in a chemical reaction
- Balance a chemical equation
- Use a balanced chemical equation to find the relationship between the moles of reactants used and/or products produced (stoichiometry with moles)
- Use a balanced chemical to find the relationship between the mass of reactants used and/or products produced (stoichiometry with mass)
- Use a balanced chemical equation to identify the limiting reactant in terms of moles or mass
- Use a balanced chemical equation to find the moles of a product produced when one reactant is limiting
- Use a balanced chemical equation to find the mass of product produced when one reactant is limiting
- Solve quantitative problems using units
The “Compounds and Stoichiometry” module includes two, five question RATs and three Application Exercises.
