Module 4: Summary of Pacing Guide
Day 1: Introduction to Chemical Reactions and preview of the base model (reaction of silver nitrate and copper).
Day 2: Analyze and modify the base model to add/remove water molecules and move the copper rod.
Day 3: Modify the model to add the production of copper nitrate, run experiments with different initial quantities of copper and silver nitrate.
Day 4: Modify the model further to create hydrated copper ions and turn the solution blue, characterize the rate of reaction.
Day 5: Explore factors impacting the rate of reaction, run experiments and analyze results.
