Organic Molecules Mini-Lab So many molecules…so little time! In college, if you take organic chemistry, you will be compelled to buy or borrow a little plastic molecule set, which you’ll use to help you to remember the zillion molecules you must know. Fortunately, for this class, you will need to know just a few molecules. Using the molecule kits (and a little imagination), you will make the following models, draw them, and make a table that you will use for this unit test, and again in May to study for the AP Test. Your table must include: the name of the molecule or functional group (and alternative name) a drawing, in color (with some attempt to show the molecule as a 3- dimensional structure) at least 2 to 3 examples of that type of molecule or group (the molecules the functional group is part of) chemical properties of the molecule or group (especially those properties that distinguish it from others) for each of the following

Unformatted text preview: • Each of the major carbon skeletons (ring, chain, etc.) • Each of the functional groups • Each of the 4 major organic molecules (1 drawing for each type of molecule) Make the table in a format that will HELP YOU study for this unit’s test, and review this information for the AP test. Make this useful for you. You may use Campbell’s textbook and any of the review books, or internet sources (you must reference the latter). What I do NOT want to see is copying drawings from any source, without making the models. It may seem silly, but the actual process of making the models and seeing them helps your brain to understand and remember what the molecules look like—and it actually contributes more than you think to your overall learning and memory. Staring at a book will NOT help you to remember anything. You will have ample time in class to complete this, so take the time to do this mini-lab well....
