This web page features a set of animations that support topics typically covered in preparatory chemistry. Learners can explore the structure of matter, properties of elements, molecular structure of water, dissolving NaCl, acid/base reaction, Boyle's Law, solubility, and more.

This collection is part of An Introduction to Chemistry, a set of resources developed by Mark Bishop which includes two textbooks, student tutorials, downloadable Power Point presentations for teachers, and concept maps.

This resource is part of a Physics Front Topical Unit.

Topic: Particles and Interactions and the Standard Model
Unit Title: Matter and Interactions

Here you will find a collection of 15 animation-based tutorials that support topics covered in introductory chemistry and physical science. The tutorials are highly engaging, yet not so directive that they inhibit critical thinking. All activities are appropriate for high school physics or chemistry; about half are easily adapted to the middle school or 9th grade physical science classroom.
