Instructional Ideas
  • Have the class label the reactants and products shown in the example problems as proton donors, proton acceptors, conjugate acids, or conjugate bases
Classroom Considerations
  • Review properties of acids and bases to prepare for the video
  • Makes a great introduction to acid-base theories and the properties of acids and bases
  • This resource is only available on an unencrypted HTTP website. It should be fine for general use, but don’t use it to share any personally identifiable information
Pros
  • The narrator shows simple ways to identify substances with each acid-base theory
  • Illustrations allow learners to visualize the components of each reaction in terms of their identities as conjugate acids or bases
Cons
  • None
