Chemistry Moles

Found in: math; science

Here's a tip for chemistry teachers wanting to get their students interested in the measurement unit mole (6x10^23 particles). Every year as I begin the unit dealing with moles, I hand out a pattern for sewing a basic mole, encouraging students to use their imagination in creating a unique mole to share with classmates. We have seen Supermole, Batmole, Groucho Mole, Hula mole, Road-kill mole, Moley the Goalie and dozens of other original ideas. The moles are worth extra credit on the unit test, but the students are more interested in entering their moles in the Mole Farm at our annual science fair, where voting for the most popular mole takes place.
