Instructional Ideas
  • Show the video early in your stoichiometry unit to make sure the class gets a jump start on the basics
  • Pause the video to allow learners to take notes and work problems
Classroom Considerations
  • The narrator references an earlier video about mole ratios several times; consider showing that video prior to this one
