Ch 8: Gases - AP Chemistry: Homeschool Curriculum

The Gases unit of this AP Chemistry Homeschool course is designed to help homeschooled students learn about theories and properties of gases. Parents can use the short videos to introduce topics, break up lessons and keep students engaged.

Who's it for?

This Gases unit of our AP Chemistry Homeschool course will benefit any student who is trying to learn about theories and properties of gases. There is no faster or easier way to learn about gases. Among those who would benefit are:

• Students who require an efficient, self-paced course of study to learn to calculate the quantity, temperature and volume of gas or discover what happens to gas under non-ideal conditions.
• Homeschool parents looking to spend less time preparing lessons and more time teaching.
• Homeschool parents who need a chemistry curriculum that appeals to multiple learning types (visual or auditory).
• Gifted students and students with learning differences.

How it works:

• Students watch a short, fun video lesson that covers a specific unit topic.
• Students and parents can refer to the video transcripts to reinforce learning.
• Short quizzes and the Gases unit exam confirm understanding or identify any topics that require review.

Gases Unit Objectives:

• Study kinetic molecular theory and the properties of gases.
• Learn to convert between Kelvin and Celsius units.
• Explore Dalton's law of partial pressures.
• Learn to convert among the units of pressure.
• Discuss the effect of a gas's temperature on its average kinetic energy.
• Explain the relationships shared by gas volume, temperature and pressure.
• Discover how to use Avogadro's law to calculate the quantity or volume of gas.
• Compare the relative velocities of gases.
• Use the ideal gas law to find the pressure or temperature of gas.
• See how gases behave in less than ideal conditions.
