On-line worksheets of organic molecules' polarity and solubility, and intermolecular forces part of Pedagogy in Action:Partners:ChemEd DL:Activities
These 5 on-line organic worksheets cover alkanes, alkenes, alcohols and thiols, aldehydes and ketones, and carboxylic acids and esters. They have students look at Models 360 from ChemEdDL to help them see the models in 3-D, determine if the molecules are polar or nonpolar, what types of intermolecular interactions happen, water solubility, and boiling points. Students are given paper copies and then bring them to class and discuss them in groups.
