Chemistry for the Gifted and Talented: Swimming pool chemistry
This activity is synoptic in nature, with questions on many different aspects of chemistry. It is context driven i.e. looks at a collection of interesting chemistry that can be derived from swimming pools. Some extension work is introduced – eg keto-enol tautomerism.
