The ChemCollective is a collection of virtual labs, scenario-based learning activities, tutorials, and concept tests. Teachers can use our content for pre-labs, for alternatives to textbook homework, and for in-class activities for individuals or teams. Students can review and learn chemistry concepts using our virtual labs, simulations, and tutorials. The ChemCollective is organized by a group of faculty and staff at Carnegie Mellon who are interested in using, assessing, and creating engaging online activities for chemistry education. This interactive tutorial illustrates the steps in measuring the amount of food coloring in sports beverages to show qualitative and quantitative analysis techniques. It covers chromatography, measuring UV/Vis absorbance and Beer’s Law plots.

Resources for Teaching Chemistry Hands-On Chemistry Activities with Real-Life Applications Hands-On Chemistry Activities With Real-Life Applications contains over 300 intriguing investigations designed to engage students in a genuine pursuit of science. Because of the favorable response to Hands-On Physics Activities, the authors used the same approach and philosophy in writing this resource. This hands-on, inquiry-based approach to teaching and learning science follows recommendations set forth in the National Academy of Sciences' National Science Education Standards and the National Science Teachers Association's Scope Sequence and Coordination Project.

Chemistry resources for Teachers and Students Search over 2000 substance pages for compound structures, properties, spectra, and more. Teaching analytical chemistry? Spectraschool is a great place to start. For lesson starters, try interactive Gridlocks, or our Starters for Ten puzzles. Free Game to Practice Chemistry Knowledge!

Molecular orbital Complete acetylene (H–C≡C–H) molecular orbital set. The left column shows MO's which are occupied in the ground state, with the lowest-energy orbital at the top. The white and grey line visible in some MO's is the molecular axis passing through the nuclei. The orbital wave functions are positive in the red regions and negative in the blue. 29jun_experiman The fourth competition, linked to the chat and video "Science: where can it take you?" is open from 29 May 2013 until 29 June 2013. This time the competition will be for teachers and for students. Teachers: are invited to submit a lessons plan (one lesson, or a sequence of lessons) using the video "Science: where can it take you?".

Your insight into science The universe is a vast soup of interacting particles and energy. The ways in which those interactions take place, as well as the structure and composition of matter, is the main focus of the field of chemistry. Our chemistry learning modules introduce you to the world of chemistry, exploring current research and scientific findings on concepts like the structure and function of atoms, forms of energy and its transfer, chemical bonding and reactions, and more.

Home Common Compound Library A searchable database of over 800 common compound names, formulas, structures, and properties. Companion Notes Hyperlinked notes and guides for first semester general chemistry. Construction Kits Flash-based kits for building chemical formulas, names, equations, and problem solutions. Articles Featured articles, books, and tutorials. Toolbox Interactive graphing, popup tables, and calculators. Tutorials Index of self-guided tutorials, quizzes, and drills on specific topics. Demonstrations Purpose These demonstrations allow students to observe a wide variety of chemical reactions, most of which should not be performed by students for safety reasons. Be sure to keep students actively involved by directing them to make observations and consider questions during demonstrations.

Some of The Best YouTube Channels for Physics and Chemistry Teachers July 11, 2015 Science in general is all about understanding how the world around us functions. It investigates the laws governing the internal workings of the universe and attempts to prove or disprove theories and assumption pertaining to it. For students, understanding scientific phenomena is integral to their overall intellectual and cognitive growth. It thrusts them into a world of exploration and problem solving and, most important of all, it unleashes their creativity and satiates their curious and probing minds.

Chemistry - Annenburg Foundation Unit Overview Since the first time early humans lit a fire, cooked food, fermented fruit, or flaked a stone axe, we have been manipulating the matter around us. This unit explores how chemistry evolved from adapting materials for practical purposes to a science that systematically offers solutions to the world's challenges. It is a story that will start with Democritus around 400 BCE, taking us through the early Arab chemist, Jābir ibn Hayyān, to the meticulous work of the Middle Age alchemists, and finally to the birth of chemistry as a science during the Age of Enlightenment in the 18th century. In the accompanying video, we explore the Silicon Age, where the goal of manipulating and purifying matter at the atomic scale is making possible today's technological advances such as cell phones and solar panels.

Virtual Labs The Virtual Lab is an online simulation of a chemistry lab. It is designed to help students link chemical computations with authentic laboratory chemistry. The lab allows students to select from hundreds of standard reagents (aqueous) and manipulate them in a manner resembling a real lab.
