In this animated and interactive object, learners examine kinetic and potential energy as well as the first law of thermodynamics and the flow of energy between a system and its surroundings. Students also answer questions about exothermic and endothermic reactions
Learners examine the meaning of oxidation, reduction, and half-reaction, and watch a film showing the deposition of copper metal from the reduction of copper (II) ion by aluminum. A brief quiz completes the activity.
In this interactive and animated object, learners use solubility rules to predict when an insoluble ionic compound will precipitate in a double replacement reaction. Four step-by-step examples are given.
Learners view several movie clips that demonstrate the use of an indicator to follow the neutralization reaction that occurs when an acid and a base are mixed. Students test their knowledge in a series of questions. Immediate feedback is given.
In this animated activity, learners examine the terms "half-reaction," "oxidizing agent," and "reducing agent" and follow five interactive examples to balance equations for oxidation-reduction reactions. Three problems are provided as a self-check.
Learners examine strategies for evaluating new ideas and accepting change. They consider a list of various reactions to change and a list of actions that enhance teamwork, and check those statements that apply to themselves.
