Dr. Miriam Douglass
Dr. Martin McClinton
Learners identify combination, decomposition, displacement, and combustion types of redox reactions. They also watch a video clip that demonstrates the reaction of sodium and water.
How Pressure Changes Boiling Temperature
By Terry Bartelt, Terry Fleischman
Learners study the effect that pressure has on boiling temperatures. Once a liquid has reached a full boil, additional heat does not raise the liquid’s temperature; however, pressure can vary the boiling point of a liquid. A brief quiz completes the activity.
Melting Point and Freezing Point
By Debbie McClinton, Dr. Miriam Douglass, Dr. Martin McClinton
Learners observe that the melting of a solid and the freezing of its liquid occur at the same temperature. The melting point is an intrinsic property and is used to identify a substance.
Gas Volume and Molar Amount
By Dr. Miriam Douglass
In this brief object, learners examine the direct relationship between the volume of a gas sample and the number of moles of gas. A problem is presented so students can test their knowledge of Avogadro's Law.
Macroscale vs. Nanoscale
By Karen Nordell
In this colorful, interactive object, learners examine how materials on the nanoscale compare with those on the macroscale. The focus is on the difference between macroscale and nanoscale gold in both color and melting point.
The Twelve Principles of Lean Manufacturing
By Weldon Faull
Following a "cut the fat" theme, learners click on 12 drawings of pigs to read about the principles of lean manufacturing.
Matchless Manufacturing Company: An Exercise in Lean Thinking
By Dan Ost
In this interactive lesson, students use critical thinking to determine the best lean manufacturing initiative when solving problems for the fictitious Batchless Manufacturing Company.
Setup Reduction/Quick Changeover
By Kaye Krueger
Learners view steps to reduce changeover time in a manufacturing operation.
The Impact of Batch Size Reduction
In this animated object, learners examine what happens to lead and cycle times when the batch size is reduced.
Oxidation States of Ions
Learners examine the periodic table to identify metallic elements that have either fixed or variable oxidation states.
