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.

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?". Quantitative chemistry Quantitative chemistry is a very important branch of chemistry because it enables chemists to calculate known quantities of materials. For example, how much product can be made from a known starting material or how much of a given component is present in a sample. Quantitative analysis is any method used for determining the amount of a chemical in a sample. The amount is always expressed as a number with appropriate units. An acid-base titration is an example of quantitative analysis. In this module you will learn about the core ideas or building blocks that are required for a deep understanding of quantitative chemistry.

8 Math and Science Simulation Resources For Any Classroom "Science is fun. Science is curiosity. We all have natural curiosity. 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. 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 game online,free science games for kids to play on PC,fun interactive activity for middle,high school students Chemikul is an online science/ chemistry-based game that will send you on an atomic mind-bender of confusion – as well as provide endless hours of enjoyment! With super-slick ambient graphics and simple acoustics, it’s a learning experience that anyone can enjoy. The goal is to create molecules using all of the atoms floating in the game screen. There are six types of atoms and they all have different amounts of “Valence” (combining power), ranging from 1 to 6 in strength. Win the game by using up the Valence of each atom.

Virtual and Interactive Resources for Science Teachers Virtual labs have come a long way in recent years. While nothing compares to completing a hands-on lab in an actual science classroom, sometimes it isn't possible. Cost and access to equipment are possible obstacles.
