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 interactive object, learners read the definitions of the parts of a cell and assemble a basic eukaryotic cell in a drag and drop exercise. A matching quiz involving cell terms and their definitions completes the activity.
In this animated object, learners examine the internal structure of an unloading valve. This learning object includes a video clip demonstrating the use of an unloading valve in a metal stamping application.
Students read about the Federal Reserve System's structure and goals and the tools it uses to control the flow of money and credit in the economy. At the end of this activity, learners are asked to write how they would solve specific economic problems if they served on the Fed's Board of Governors.
