Organic Function Group

Presented by Megan Gould

EDU 505

Professor : Harrison Yang

  • Organic chemistry is the study of compounds that are composed of carbon molecules
  • Organic is derived from the word life
  • There are some exceptions of compounds that contain carbon which aren’t organic
  • Examples include: oxides of carbon ( CO, CO2)

carbonates ( CaCO3)

cyanides ( NaCN)

  • Many organic compounds are categorized by their functional group
  • A function group is a group that is attached to a carbon molecule
  • Each functional group has different characteristics and properties
  • Examples include alcohols, amines, ketones
  • Today will do an activity related to what we have learned about functional groups
  • First each of you will name an example of a compound of each functional group and draw the compound
  • Next each of you will work with a partner ( who I will assign) and choose a function group you would like to work with.
  • You will list the physical/chemical properties of each group and present a poster to your classmates.
  • Your goal is to educate your classmates on your functional group and become an expert
  • Websites will be provided for you as a guide please utilize them
  • This is a web quest journey and your goal is learn from this website quest about each category of compounds.
  • Name an example of each functional group and draw this compound

- Alcohol

- Ketone

- Aldehyde

  • Amine
  • Amide
  • Ester
  • Ether
  • Carboxilic acid
  • Alkene
  • Alkyne
  • Alkane
  • Both partners select a functional group you’d like to present
  • Please tell me which you select as each group must not present the same topic
  • Review each website for guidance on your functional group and the individual assignment
  • Prepare a poster with your partner that includes the following : Title, Presenters, Topic, Introduction, Examples and drawings, Physical Characteristics, Chemical Characteristics, Conclusion , What you have learned today
  • Here is the list of resources you can use today

100 points will be awarded

25 points are for the individual assignment

25 points for group participation

25 points for the poster presentation

25 points validity of information and research

  • Things to consider :
  • Did you and your partner work well together?
  • How is your presenting ?
  • Is your voice loud and clear?
  • Does your poster have good organization and good visual aids?
  • Did you and your partner have good eye contact with the audience
  • Did you have a good grasp of the material
  • How was your attitude

Now that everyone has presented their posters we have all learned about organic chemistry and different functional groups!

I hope that you have all learned more about organic chemistry and learning to use the web accurately

  • This project is aimed for high school chemistry to give them a quick introduction to organic chemistry and the basics of functional groups these students are in 10th/11th grade
  • This project was developed to help students learn the information as a group so that they interact more with peers and to help them explore and research the internet and learn how to do so and obtain accurate information.
  • This project is designed to be given after completion of this unit as a summary and overview.
  • This project should take about two class periods or 80 minutes
