In this interactive and animated object, students distribute the valence electrons in simple covalent molecules with one central atom. Six rules are followed to show the bonding and nonbonding electrons in Lewis dot structures. The process is well illustrated with eight worked examples and two interactive practice problems.
In this animated activity, learners examine how organs are visualized in three dimensions. The terms “longitudinal,” “cross,” “transverse,” “horizontal,” and “sagittal” are defined. Students test their knowledge of the location of abdominal pelvic cavity organs in two drag-and-drop exercises.
This activity is cognitive. Learners will actively listen to a story activated by the computer. Then learners will take a quiz on their comprehension. Lastly, learners will compare their chosen answers against the answer key to determine how well they really did "actively" listen. (Credit given to Tom E. Wirkus, University Of Wisconsin-LaCrosse for this activity.)
The target audience of this learning object is trigonometry students who have already learned what a radian is and have already derived the key values of the coordinates associated with common radian units, but now need to practice finding those values on the unit circle. The student does not need to know the definition of the six trig functions to do this activity.
