Hello everyone, currently I am taking chemistry in the IB and I was curious on how people who have already taken the class improve their stoichiometry skills?

Personally I have been trying by retaking notes over unit 1 and also attempting questions from the book and from past exam paper 2 questions. However I still seem to be struggling and getting majority of the answers wrong and I just hope that there is tips or advice on how to improve quickly my skills for unit 1. Btw I am in year one.

Thank you!

Ahh Stoich - everyone's most disliked topic of IB Chemistry XD

I'm in yr 13, and stpich was the first topic we did at the start of yr 12 . To this day, it remains my enemy lol but things do gradually get better. Unlike other chemistry topics, like equilibrium and acids and bases etc, you can't just get away with learning the theory behind stoich. The most important thing is definitely application. I'd really recommend doing through a question bank that's just stoich, and eventually you'll see that all the questions are pretty much the same but with different numbers. It's like riding a bike, once you learn how to tackle it, you can't forget.

Also, considering how stoich rears its head in pretty much all of the other topics as well, it really is important to address any issues you have now, so it doesn't;t have a knock on effect on the calculations in further topics.

If there's ever a specific question type you don't understand, feel free to post it on here, and I'll try and guide you in the right direction

I know its tough, but you can do it! Best of luck!
