About the program

The Ionic Chip Lab

HS5 Player

Students write 36 ionic chemical formulas (binary & polyatomic) then use "chip" models of the ions to construct models of each compound.

Chemical Equations Program

HS5 Player

Explains how to write and balance a chemical equation.

Balancing Chemical Equations

HS5 Player

Students balance 10 equations by clicking & dragging coefficients then checking to see if their finished equation is correctly balanced.

Organic Model Toolkit

HS5 Player

An electronic model kit for making simple organic compounds of alkanes, alkenes, alkynes, cyclic and substituted hydrocarbons...
