Outline- Gas Law Module

ONLINE GAS LAW MODULE OUTLINE

This module is designed for a hybrid class. The students will be in the classroom for online group work, quizzes and laboratory work.  They will be making and posting videos of their laboratory results. The students will be working online individually with the notes, individual practice problems and online tutorials.

The first lessons concentrate on describing a gas in terms of its properties: pressure, volume, temperature, and amount of substance. The following lessons concentrate on how experimental relationships connect the properties of gases. The gas laws will be rationalized using a series of hypotheses about the molecular structure of gases.

Learning Objectives

• Understand the definition of pressure. Use the definition to predict and measure pressures experimentally.
• Describe experiments that show relationships between pressure, temperature, volume, and moles of a gas.
• Use empirical gas laws to predict how a change in one of the properties of a gas will affect the remaining properties.
• Use volume-to-mole relationships obtained using the empirical gas laws to solve stoichiometry problems involving gases.
• Understand the concept of partial pressure in mixtures of gases.
• Use the ideal kinetic-molecular model to explain the empirical gas laws.

5 thoughts on “Outline- Gas Law Module”

1. Christy, of course the module looks fine. You had mentioned that you wanted this so that if it snowed they could work at home. Would you add any kind of virtual lab for them to do if them missed class for an extended period of time as we have had in the past? Of course they can handle the math problems as long as they follow the podcast and sample problems.

1. There are some virtual labs out there that would work well if we miss time…. I will put those in the module and hide them until I need to use them.

2. Great outline! You have covered all the bases and it has such a nice flow. What are the “online group practice problems” that you have planned for in-class activities for each lesson?

1. Christy Thomas says:

Sarah,
For the online practice problems, I use examview and write a quiz that allows them to work in groups and them gives them immediate feedback when they finish.

3. “The students will be in the classroom for online group work,” – do they need to be in the classroom for online group work?

“They will be making and posting videos of their laboratory results. ” – I really like this. Could we do something more with it? Why are they posting these online?

Your learning objectives are very clear, this is a great start. I would love to see how you assess each learning objective. Can you articulate that?
