Today I’m sharing a collection of chemistry bookmarks, which I hope students and teachers of science may find useful. Some of them are specific to a particular unit of study, while others are more general in nature. There are definitely some duplicates here from my previous posts, so I apologize for the extraneous material, but it’s still good stuff. Today’s post focuses on general chemistry. You can find additional bookmarks in my earlier post, “Chemistry resources for students: part 1.”
- Khan Academy’s chemistry portal: A great and extensive resource for teachers wishing to flip their class as well as students wishing to expand their understanding.
- pTable.com: The best periodic table ever.
- General chemistry for students: A teacher’s website from Vancouver, BC (I think).
- Printable handouts for IB Chemistry: Mr Pham’s teacher page for IB Chem resources.
- Chemistry problem sets: Practice the mathematics of chemistry in a variety of topics.
- Off The Shelf Chemistry: A collection of lab experiments that can be done with basic ingredients found in your local supermarket or hardware store. Thanks Mr Farber!
- Mole ratios and stoichiometry: A basic but solid tutorial with sample problems.
- Chemistry videos from MIT: These 2-minute videos show how chemistry is used in the real world.
- Common lab equipment and procedures: A nice primer for middle school students.
- Practical chemistry resources: Nuffield Foundation’s collection of lab experiments and field investigations related to general chemistry topics.
- Flash animations for learning chemistry: Basic but very clear interactive animations.
- Atoms First eBook: iBook and eBook chapters on general chemistry.
- IB Chemistry revision notes: The title is fairly self-explanatory.
- Colourful Solutions: A collection of detailed chemistry animations and tutorials available on a paid subscription basis.
- 50 chemistry demonstrations: An old-school site, but worth a visit.
- Chemistry LibreTexts: UC-Davis’s extensive resource collection for advanced high school or university students.
- ChemTutor: A thorough and well-organized site that I’ve used for years to supplement general chemistry units.
- Chemistry for Kids: A nice resource for primary or early middle school students.
- ChemActive: A site aligned with the IB Chemistry syllabus. It appears to still focus on the old (pre-2016) syllabus, but the resources are still useful.
- TED-Ed and Periodic Videos: A collection of chemistry videos from the creative geniuses at TED-Ed.
That’s all for now, folks.
