A simple decomposition reaction of sodium bicarbonate (baking soda) presents the opportunity for students to test their knowledge of stoichiometry, factoring labels, and the mole concept. This outcome-based lab requires the students to precisely predict the mass of the solid product. An electronic balance will reveal how close the students come to their “target” and determines their grades!
