    This past year I tried to implement the NGSS with minimal success....as in, I didn't get as far as I liked. Here are a list of units I am hoping to cover next year. My goal is to go faster...

    Safety and Measurement
    States of Matter
    Atomic Structure & Periodic Table
    Nuclear Chem
    Bonding & Naming
    Chemical Reactions
    Stoichiometry
    Kinetics & Equilibrium
    Gas Laws
    Redox (Honors Only)

    I want to try to fit in solutions....maybe in another unit, or into one of these? What units do you cover as they relate to next gen?

    I feel like solutions is a pretty quick, basic topic. Could you fit it in between Periodic Table and Nuclear Chem? Or after chemical reactions?

    I do solutions in 2 parts. When I do chemical reactions we talk about forming a precipitate and do net ionic equations. I also do acids and bases at this point and how a solution forms. I combine equilibrium and gas laws in a unit that I call States of matter and this is when I go over solution concentration and acid/base strength.
