Balancing Chemical Equations - Lesson Guide

Published on 01/21/2013

Activity Overview

In this Science Nspired module, students will explore Balancing Chemical Equations through simulations, formative assessments and summative assessments. This Lesson Guide is a TI-Nspire PublishViewTM document.

About the Lesson

Students will describe what “reactants” and “products” in a chemical equation mean as well as explain the difference between “coefficients” and “subscripts” in chemical equations. They will recognize that the number of atoms of each element is conserved in a chemical reaction and balance chemical equations. Assessment will be throughout the simulations and the laboratory to determine the students understanding.


This Lesson Guide allows you to preview the variety of activities provided for this module as well as give a suggested flow (lesson plan) of the lesson. The Lesson Guide is a PublishViewTM document (.tnsp).
