This unit is a look at the atom, the building block of matter. Scientists for the longest time were experimenting into matter to see how objects formed. While a lot of work has been done on this, it is still a theory with certain details still being worked out.
We will learn about the basic parts and structure of the atom as well with some of the scientists that gave us this understanding. We will learn about radiation and how scientists use basic properties of some atoms to help us in a variety of fields.
IT - IsaacsTeach. This is an online series of tutorials and guides to help with AP Chemistry Topics. They are very well done and align to our class quite well.
MR - Mark Rosengarten. This is similar to IsaacsTeach but covers some different topics. These are often more entertaining than the usual science videos.
TT - Teacher Tools. Teacher Tools is a set of reference materials, worksheets, and self-quizzes to assist in practice.
Q - Quizlet. This will be a link to a Quizlet on the topic.
Animation - A short clip usually under two minutes long.
PPT - This is an abbreviation for PowerPoint. Some are originals and others are from other sources.
Podcasts - Podcasts are audio lectures on a topic. Practically all of them on this page are going to be original so it is a good way to reinforce a lecture.
PH - Resources with this code are from a previous textbook that I used.
A Short note about animations and videos.
There are several sources for a complete library of chemistry videos and animations. For the tutorial videos, I have gone through many of the sources and have chosen two of them that I think are the best. I looked for the ones that were the clearest, and most entertaining.
