Conversions a site to practice and learn the steps necessary to covert numbers with one metric unit into numbers with another metric unit.

Significant Digits A site to practice determining significant digits in a number.

Determining Density An interactive site to explore the relationship between mass volume and density by putting objects on a scale to measure mass, in a graduated cylinder to measure volume and in a pail of water to see if they float. A site to practice determining densities of object from a known mass and volume. A site where you actually determine the volume and mass of a cube from video clips of the graduated cylinders and balances and then determine the density.

Classifying Matter A PowerPoint presentation about classifying Matter into elements, compounds, and mixtures. A matching exercise to practice identifying homogenous and heterogeneous mixtures. Two different classification schemes to help students understand and identify substance as elements, compounds, solution and heterogeneous mixtures.

Specific Heat A interactive site to determine the specific heat of three different metals with great supplements. An interactive site to practice specific heat determination problems.

Atomic Theory The Particle Data Group of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory presents an award winning interactive tour of quarks, neutrinos, antimatter, extra dimensions, dark matter, accelerators and particle detectors, called the Particle Adventure: the fundamentals of matter and force. An interactive site to explore the parts of an atom and how they function together. An interactive site where student's can explore the effect of the slit size in relation to Rutherford's Gold Foil experiment. A simulation of Rutherford's Gold Foil experiment with explanations. An explanation of J.J. Thompson's discovery as well as an interactive simulation and video of the experiment.

Emission Spectra An interactive site where you can excite discharge tubes full of particular known gases with electricity and see the emission spectra produced.

Quantum Numbers A site with review about the four quantum numbers, with some nice visuals. A site that reviews quantum numbers with some practice problems, also includes electron configuration problems.

Electron Configurations Electron configuration practice problems with solutions

Periodic Table An interactive site to investigate periodic trends, periods, groups, families and other information about each element. Another interactive site to investigate periodic trends, periods, groups, families and other information about each element. A site to view each atoms electron configuration, moving atom diagram, emission spectra and lots more..


Stoichiometry A site that explains stoichiometry and has a number of practice problems with answer to check your work. Another site the explain stoichiometry a little more simply, and explains how to find moles given moles, grams, given moles, moles given grams and grams given grams. Some good practice problems. A site with practice problems for both mole to mole conversions and gram to gram conversion. Answers are included as well as some practice tests. These pages are designed to familiarize the user with some of the stoichiometric concepts and calculations used when dealing with chemical reactions.  These concepts and calculations can be addressed through the use of some reaction simulations. The simulations are designed to obey the stoichiometric principles.  A miniguide to problem solving stoichiometry problems with practice problems and diagrams.


Kinetic Theory                         Watch gas molecules in random motion colliding with the walls of their container. Interpreting their observations in terms of the kinetic theory of gases, they relate the number of walls-molecules collisions to the gas pressure and examine the graph of pressure (number of wall collisions) vs. time.   In this website you can interact with a balloon's pressure and the molecules in the balloon to see what happens to the balloon. You raise the temperature in the balloon to see what happens. Then answer the questions following each experiment. There are six pages of experiments.  In this interactive experiment you will discover what temperature does to the mixing particles that come from different chambers with different temperatures. In this series of experiments, you will control the action of a piston in a pressure chamber which is filled with an ideal gas. The gas is defined by four states.


AP Practice Resources A great resource for extra AP practice for each chapter including review questions, games, and quizzes. Scroll down and you will find AP Chem Labs, AP Chem Notes, AP Chem Help Pages, Old AP Chem Exams and a link to Chem Guy Videos where AP Chem concepts are explained. A site to find study cards for all the AP Chemistry subjects. There are four cards per page. AP practice questions Resources for each chapter studying. released free response questions for the AP Chemistry test, formula sheet can be found by scrolling down to any of the released tests. Adrian Dingle's website with blogs about chemistry topics as well as AP Study Guide to prep for AP test.
