Precipitation Reactions and Net Ionic Equations

The Precipitation Reactions and Net Ionic Equations Concept Builder challenges learners to identify the chemical formula of the precipitate that is formed when two aqueous solutions of an ionic compound are mixed AND to identify the net ionic equation for such a precipitation reaction. The Concept Builder includes three scaffolded activities. In the first activity - Soluble or Insoluble? - learners must identify three ionic compounds as being either soluble or insoluble based on their given name or chemical formula; a list of Solubility Rules is provided. In the second activity - What's Going Down? - learners identify the chemical formula of the precipitate (or insoluble compound) that forms when two aqueous solutions of an ionic compound are mixed. In the third and final activity - Net Ionic Equations - learners are given the chemical formulas or the names of the two ionic compounds that are mixed as aqueous solutions and must identify the net ionic equation for the precipitation reaction that results. There are a total of 48 questions in this Concept Builder. They are organized into 16 different Question Groups and spread across the three activities. Question-specific help is provided for each of the 16 situations. The built-in score-keeping makes this Concept Builder a perfect candidate for a classroom activity.
