Students in honors chemistry have just completed a unit on stoichiometry, the study of mass relationships in chemical reactions. Culminating their study, students worked in groups of three or four during their class period to prepare the perfect fudge. Students were instructed to follow the fudge recipe on the marshmallow creme jar, but they were permitted to add secret ingredients. As they prepared their fudge, the students learned first-hand about the Law of Definite Proportions, limiting reactants and the pitfalls of using excess reactants. Students looked forward to making the fudge all year.
