This mole concept course is serve as an introductory to advanced course for students who are learning to recap mole concept and solving higher order thinking questions related to stoichiometric calculations. Students who are taking AP chemistry, junior high school (Year 5,6), GCE A'level, GCE O level examinations students, Pre-university students or students who wish to have a refreshment of the mole concept will find it most beneficial and rewarding.
Numerous worked examples and checkpoints will be provided in the lectures to help students to have sufficient practices in order to gain mastery of the topics. Detail notes (37 pages of notes) will be available for download from lecture 2. This is where students will learn the concept in a very clear and systematic manner.
The course consist of a total of 19 lectures and is classified into 3 different levels (Basic to advanced levels):
1. Introduction - Content outlines and what to expect from the course
2. Learning how to calculate isotopic abundance level
3. Basic mole concept - Calculating Ar, Mr, Molar mass, mole and number of molecules / atoms.
4. Empirical and Molecular formula calculation (Basic to advance questions)
5. Limiting reagent concept - How to recognize and solve it
6. Diluting samples and solving questions with concentration units such as mol/dm3 and g/dm3
Intermediate Concept :
7. Solving basic combustion types of questions
8. Solving complex combustion questions
9. Basic titration question - How to write equation to solving
10. How to solve complex titration question - Back titration
11. Double indicator experiments - Concept
12. Solving Case 1 - Double indicator experiment
13. Solving Case 2 - Double indicator experiment
14. Solving Case 3- Double indicator experiment
15. Basic Redox concept
16. Learning how to solve and write redox half-equation Part 1
17. Learning how to solve and write redox half-equation Part 2
18. Solving Unknown oxidation states
19. Complex redox calculation questions
After going through the 3 levels of concept (Basic, Intermediate and advanced) and the practices in the exercises provided, students will gain mastery of the topic and should be able to tackle questions in school.
