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 basic organization and structure of the periodic table of elements. By clicking on the symbol, they can read that element's atomic number and weight. In an exercise, students identify elements as belonging to a group, a period, or neither.
