Individual Video Tapes on Chemistry

The following 6 tapes are currently available:

  1. Atomic Structure: Mapping an invisible World. Journey through the history of the atom an see how models of these particles of matter have changed over time. Dynamic animations and graphics bring to life the different atomic models of Bohr, Rutherford, Dalton and others. Other important concepts such as atomic mass, number, isotopes, subatomic particles and radioactive particles are covered. Includes a teacher's guide with lesson plans, student activities, discussion question and script. Length 22 minutes.
  2. Race to Catch a Buckyball. Learn about the third known form of pure carbon.This fascinating video explores the unexpected discovery of C-60, also known as buskyminsterfulrene or buckyballs. Length 60 minutes.
  3. Compounds: Electromagnetic Attraction in Molecules. This video with its animation and striking graphics helps to explainthe concept of chemical bonding in compounds. Topics addressed include whether bonding is ionic or covalent, the chemical equations and chemical formulas created by the compound, and the conservation of matter. Other subjects include endothermic and neutralization reactions. Contains examples of everyday materials which are a product of chemical bonding. Includes a teacher's guide with lesson plans, student activities, discussion question and script. Length 24 minutes.
  4. The Periodic Table: Reactions and Relationships. Familiarize your students wit the building blocks of the universe. The program explains the periodic law and the significance of the rows and columns of the periodic table. It also outlines the physical and chemical qualities of the members of each group of elements from the alkaline metals to the noble gases. Complete with a teacher's guide with lesson plans, student activities, discussion questions and script. Length 25 minutes
  5. Reactions: The Chemistry of Change. Take a look at the importance of chemical reactions in the lab and everyday life. Several types of reactions are presented in this video, including exothermic, endothermic, spontaneous and non-spontaneous. Additionally this video shows how these reaction are affected by other variables such as temperature, concentration, and the presence of a catalyst. The notions of chemical equilibrium and reversibility are also addressed.Includes a teacher's guide with lesson plans, student activities, discussion question and script. Length 27 minutes.
  6. Mixtures: Together but Separate. Introduce students to the differences between mixtures and compounds. Types of mixtures such as suspension and colloids are introduced, as well as how they can be separated. A comprehensive look is taken at such concepts as: solvents, solutes, electrolytes, saturated solutions and polarity. 3-D animations demonstrate how solubility is affected by the polarity of a solvent or solute. Includes a teacher's guide with lesson plans, student activities, discussion question and script. Length 22 minutes.
