AP Chemistry polyatomic ions quiz

Give students extra practice for the AP Chemistry exam by having AI quiz them on the formula and charge of polyatomic ions.

Teaching goals

Memorizing common polyatomic ions (nitrate, sulfate, carbonate, etc.), while not required, can help students save valuable time during the AP Chemistry exam.

Typically, teachers might give a simple fill-in-the-blank quiz where students have to write the formula for each polyatomic ion, given its name. With Flint, these assessments can be made to give students adaptive practice, depending on which ions they’re struggling to remember.

Below, we can see that the teacher has uploaded a list of common polyatomic ions that they’d like their students to memorize the formulas for:

Learning objective:

Students should memorize the formula and charge for these polyatomic ions.

Extra customization

The AI tutor created by the teacher will automatically go through the list of ions in the PDF and quiz students on the formula and charge of each ion.

Tutor type and initial prompt showing a quiz-like conversation structure.

To evaluate deeper understanding, the teacher can use the “revise” feature to update the underlying prompts for the AI tutor to change its behavior.

Teacher using the revise feature to get the AI to ask the student to explain the reasoning behind each charge and Flint automatically added a rule to do so.

Furthermore, the teacher can set this tutor as the default AI tutor for their AP Chemistry class, meaning that students can easily access it 24/7 for extra practice.

Student experience

Students engage via back and forth chat messages with the AI, where they are quizzed on the formula and charge of each polyatomic ion. When students get an answer wrong, the AI will give them extra help without giving away the answer.

Example student chat where the AI helps guide them when they make a mistake.

Students also have the ability to ask follow-up questions to deepen their understanding, even by providing images to the AI, either via upload or webcam capture.

"Flint allowed students to ask questions about molecules they did not understand or pathways that were unfamiliar. Students were engaged as they had a personal tutor that would guide them through complex material at their pace and level of understanding. What had once been a frustrating experience became student-driven content formation."
