This kit uses models to introduce the fundamentals of organic chemistry.
- Students Visualize the Structure of Molecules & How They Function Together
- Pre and Post-Laboratory Assessments Included
- Material for 10 Setups
- Estimated Lab Time: 45 Minutes
Students re-create the structure of carbohydrates, lipids, and proteins and visualize how these molecules function together. They begin by constructing and joining simple sub-unit molecules to create disaccharides, polysaccharides, polypeptides, and lipids. In the process, students learn about the structural characteristics and the chemical processes that occur as they form more complex molecules.
The kit includes a teacher's guide, a student copymaster, and enough material for 10 setups.
Ordering information: This kit includes black carbon atoms, white hydrogen atoms, red oxygen atoms, blue nitrogen atoms, 2.5 cm bonding tubes for electron single bonds, and 3.5 cm bonding tubes for electron double bonds.
