Predicting and Balancing Synthesis Reactions

Predicting the products and balancing chemical reactions is the main skillset that students need to have leaving this chapter. I start teaching this with synthesis reactions, because they are one of the simplest and most straightforward forms of chemical reactions. This worksheet provides a few examples of how to predict products of synthesis reactions using oxidation states as well as showing students how to balance.

Essential Concepts: Chemical reactions, synthesis reactions, balancing equations, predicting products, oxidation state.
