The Virtual Lab is an online simulation of a chemistry lab. It is designed to help students link chemical computations with authentic laboratory chemistry. The lab allows students to select from hundreds of standard reagents (aqueous) and manipulate them in a manner resembling a real lab.
Scenario based Learning Activities
Our scenario-based activities challenge students to apply chemistry knowledge in real world and game based situations. These activities highlight the utility of chemistry concepts.
ChemCollective tutorials walk students through solving chemistry problems movies, text, and interactive tutors. Because the hints given by these tutors ultimately provide the solution to the problem, they are similar to worked examples in a textbook. Currently, we have tutorials covering concepts in stoichiometry, buffers, and equilibrium.
Our concept tests use qualitative multiple choice questions to assess the understanding of key chemical concepts. (Please email us for answers and suggested classroom uses).
