The titration screen experiment has been designed to be a free flexible tool for teachers and students. You can choose to carry out a strong acid - strong base titration (or any combination of strong and weak acid-base titrations). There is also a redox titration experiment to complete in order for students to practise their understanding and skills.
This resource allows students to run their own titration experiment on a computer or tablet before taking part in the real thing. The advantages to this approach are that the students will become more confident and familiar with the procedures in the laboratory. They may also feel less rushed and better understand the reason for each task. After using this resource feedback suggests there is more time in class to focus on practical skills and developing understanding.
This resource meets the needs of many specifications for students of ages 14–18 years. Use this practical simulation for pre-lab learning or post-lab homework. These explanatory demonstration videos may be useful.
