Science - Chemistry
Students will understand that all matter in the universe has a common origin and is made of atoms, which have structure and can be systematically arranged on the periodic table.
Atomic Structure Timeline
Important dates, events, and people in history. Click on a scientists' name for more information.
Carbon: Structure Matters
The purpose of this lesson is to explore the molecular structure of matter and how it can affect the physical characteristics of a specific material.
An interactive periodic table. You can view the table by properties such as electronic configuration or boiling point, or see elements by groups. Click on individual elements for more information.
Chemicool Periodic Table
An excellent, colorful interactive periodic table. Just click on the symbol and learn all about it.
Chemistry OER Textbook for Utah SEEd Standards
The Utah Science Open Educational Resources (OER) textbook project was started to bring Utah teachers together to create a resource that aligns to Utah core science standards. The Utah Science OER textbooks are not intended to be curriculum as they do not include labs, assessments, or a teacher guide with answers. They are intended as a reference material for students with content to support teachers classroom instruction and help make sense of science concepts found in standards. This OER textbook is also available in other languages at https://www.uen.org/oer/index.shtml.
Chemistry: The Particle Adventure
Introduces the theory of fundamental particles and forces called the Standard Model. The experimental evidence and reasons for further study are explored. Also information on particle decay and a history section.
Fe : Fuse Your Way to the Iron Tile
Play this game of fusing atoms into iron.
General Chemistry Online
Tutorials, notes, glossaries, quizzes, and more.
Interactives: the Periodic Table
Using this interactive you'll not only understand how the periodic table works, but you can figure out how elements interact to make the world around us.
Isotopes of Pennies
This lesson helps students understand that average atomic mass is not a simple average, but is weighted according to percent abundance. Students should have a basic understanding of isotopes, mass number, and atomic number.
Learn the Periodic Table elements with this Tetris-style game. Requires at least Netscape 2.0 and the Shockwave plugin to play.
This Flash tool will allow you to simulate Thomson's electron experiment.
