Acids and Bases StAIR

Great lesson!  I like that you broke down the three types of acids and gave examples of each.  I thought the pace at which you worked through the lesson was good for both students using the tutorial as a review and those who were learning the information for the first time.

My only comment about the material is that you may want to mention the other common types of bases, like carbonates and amines, that exist even if you don't use them in class.  That way when the students move on in chemistry they are aware that there are more than just hydroxide bases even if they don't know exactly what they are.

Technical Remarks:

This is more just a preference thing than anything else, but whenever you go to write, you are out of your camera screen shot.  This may be what you were trying to but it may be beneficial to zoom out a little on your camera to not distract the students.

The only other remark I would make it that when I put in incorrect answers for the quiz questions, as a student just learning about acids/bases, I am not sure I would understand what was incorrect about my answers.
