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 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 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 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 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.
