This unit is about the behavior of gases. This is a very mathematical topic as practically all of the relationships we will study are described with a formula. Gases behave much differently from liquids and solids. While a molecule of water in ice is identical to a molecule of water in water vapor, the relative far distance between molecules in the gas phase gives water vapor a different set of qualities than we see in ice.
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.

PowerPoints & Podcasts
I have several good PowerPoints on Gases and so I included them all. There is a lot of duplicate information on them so be aware, but each has some points stressed that are not found on the others. Over time, I hope to edit them out and condense them down. The ones that start with PH is from an alternate text and are presentations on specific units. The topics are labeled.

| PH PPT: Ideal Gases|| PH PPT: Gases: Mixtures and Movements|
Worksheets & Activities
Below are a series of animations for the unit. I know some are a bit repetitive but they are all short and show the individual gas laws pretty well. I am trying to include some entertaining ones as well. I have labeled them FUN. They are more entertaining but know that they are more for a diversion than a real study guide.
Movies are longer than animation and can be used as hearing a lecture again. While the animations were more to show the relationships, some of these movies are focused on actually solving problems that you will see.
