Topics: Concentration, Unit Conversion, and Molar Mass
In this activity, students explore dilution and concentration by making patient IVs. They learn about the molecular structure of salt and glucose and connect the microscopic to what is measurable. Students use proportional reasoning to obtain the desired volume and molarity of solutions in the virtual lab.
