ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

Sample Learning Goals
  • Describe the relationships between volume and amount of solute to solution concentration.
  • Explain how solution color and concentration are related.
  • Predict how solution concentration will change for any action (or combination of actions) that adds or removes water, solute, or solution, and explain why.
  • Design a procedure for creating a solution of a given concentration.
  • Design and justify a procedure for changing a solution from one concentration to another.
  • Identify when a solution is saturated and predict how concentration will change for any action or combination of actions where water or solute change.
