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. Lesson Plans: Supernova Chemistry Objective Students will observe visible spectra of known elements and identify an unknown element or combination of elements by visible spectra. Grade level Grades 9 - 12 Subjects Astronomy, Chemistry, and Physics 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.

Chemistry Help Videos - Online College Science Tutoring Need a science tutor? Need some college chemistry practice problems? Getting high school chemistry or college chemistry help just got easier. Cooking with Chemistry Cooking with Chemistry Cooking with Chemistry was first presented as a one-day hands-on workshop for teachers at ChemEd 97, held at the University of Minnesota, Minneapolis, MN, August 3-7, 1997. Click on one of the titles below to read some experiments and activities from Cooking with Chemistry, a work in progress, by David A. Katz: These are PDF files and require Acrobat Reader

Science for Kids Water is an amazing substance! It can form into a beautiful snowflake in its solid state or evaporate into the air as a gas. Experiment with solids, liquids and gases to learn more about these states of matter. How do objects move? IUPAC nomenclature of organic chemistry The IUPAC nomenclature of organic chemistry is a systematic method of naming organic chemical compounds as recommended[1] by the International Union of Pure and Applied Chemistry (IUPAC). Ideally, every possible organic compound should have a name from which an unambiguous structural formula can be created. For ordinary communication, to spare a tedious description, the official IUPAC naming recommendations are not always followed in practice, except when it is necessary to give a concise definition to a compound[vague], or when the IUPAC name is simpler (e.g. ethanol instead of ethyl alcohol). Otherwise the common or trivial name may be used, often derived from the source of the compound (see below). In addition, very long names may be less concise than structural formulae. Basic principles

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.

Outreach - School of Chemistry CCDC Bite-sized Learning & Teaching Resources Welcome to this webpage which contains the final versions of the resources developed by this project, initially by my end of year 12 Nuffield Bursary students in August 2011 and 2012, but also some by Kate Leary, my Outreach Summer Intern in summer 2012 and Steven Carman, my stage 4 MChem project student in spring 2013. Steven was subsequently employed by the CCDC in summer 2013, for which we were very grateful, to review and edit the trial resources into a standard format, develop additional activities based on his project feedback and to produce the final versions available on this webpage. The students who were involved in producing resources for this project were: Hollie Staward, Heworth Grange School, Gateshead; Nuffield Bursary project student summer 2011.

Chemistry — Cooler Than Absolute Zero! Here’s a look at the remarkable properties of ten of the periodic table’s elements. The first on our list was hailed as the philosophers’ stone when it was discovered. 1. Phosphorus Phosphorus was the first element ever isolated scientifically. In 1669 Hennig Brand evaporated water from urine, then allowed the residue to fester for a few months.
