* Bond Theory The Evolution of Bond Theory
David M. Whisnant and Laura Yindra

In chemistry lectures we have little time to discuss the history of chemistry. This simulation begins with the development of valence concepts in the 19th century. We will step back into the 19th century to see how theories of chemical combination changed during that time.

* Chemistry Comes Alive! Chemistry Comes Alive!
Jerrold J. Jacobsen, John W. Moore, Gordon Bain (Vol. 4), Kara Bruce (Vol, 4), Gary Trammell (Vol. 5), Kristin Johnson (Vol. 5), Lois M. Browne (Vol. 6), John F. Zimmerman (Vol. 6), Rachel L. Bain (Vols. 7 and 8), James H. Maynard (Vols. 7 and 8), C. Jonathan Mitschele (Vol. 8)

Chemistry truly does come to life through this collection of pictures, animations, and movies depicting chemical reactions and techniques. The Chemistry Comes Alive! collection includes hundreds of high quality QuickTime movies and thousands of still pictures.

* ChemPages ChemPages Laboratory
Joe L. March, John W. Moore, and Jerrold J. Jacobsen

ChemPages Laboratory covers more than 30 laboratory techniques and items of equipment. It teaches introductory chemistry students what they need to know--before they come into the lab.

* Flying Over Atoms
John R. Markham

Take a trip where you've never been before--explore solid surfaces at the atomic level with Flying over Atoms.

* General Chemistry Multimedia Problems General Chemistry Multimedia Problems
David M. Whisnant

General Chemistry Multimedia Problems ask students questions about experiments they see presented using videos and images. The questions asked apply concepts from different parts of an introductory course, encouraging students to decompartmentalize the material.

* Inorganic Molecules Inorganic Molecules: A Visual Database
Charles E. Ophardt, Evan M. Davis, and Dustin Underwood

Inorganic Molecules: A Visual Data Base contains text and graphics describing 66 molecules and ions commonly used as examples in general chemistry courses. For each molecule, fifteen molecular properties are presented visually by eight or nine different molecular models created by the CAChe Scientific Molecular Modeling program

* Inorganic Nomenclature Inorganic Nomenclature
David Shaw and Laura Yindra

Inorganic Nomenclature is a drill-and-practice tutorial on naming simple inorganic compounds and writing chemical formulas consisting of multiple-choice questions.

* Lake Study Lake Study
David M. Whisnant, James A McCormick, Benjamin Fortin, and Patrick Nutter

Lake Study for Windows is a two-part simulation designed to involve students with the scientific method. It allows them to collect data, formulate hypotheses, and test the hypotheses with controlled experiments.

* Netorials Netorials
Rachel Bain, Mithra Biekmohamadi, Liana Lamont, Mike Miller, Rebecca Ottosen, John Todd, and David Shaw

The Netorials cover selected topics in first-year chemistry including: Chemical Reactions, Stoichiometry, Thermodynamics, Intermolecular Forces, Acids & Bases, Biomolecules, and Electrochemistry.

* Organic Nomenclature Organic Nomenclature
David Shaw and Laura Yindra

Organic Nomenclature is a drill-and-practice tutorial on naming simple organic compounds and drawing structures consisting of multiple-choice questions.

* Periodic Table Live! Periodic Table Live! 3rd Edition
Alton J. Banks, Evan M. Davis, Jon L. Holmes, Jerrold J. Jacobsen, John C. Kotz, John W. Moore, Paul F. Schatz, William R. Robinson, Jaclyn Tweedale, and Susan Young

Periodic Table Live! may not include everything you ever wanted to know about the elements, but it will probably answer any question you aren't afraid to ask. The third edition includes a new interactive graphing and sorting capability.

* Solid State Resources Solid State Resources, 2nd Edition
George C. Lisensky, Arthur B. Ellis, and Joey M. Blackwell

Solid State Resources helps instructors integrate materials science examples into introductory chemistry courses.

* A Window on the Solid State A Window on the Solid State
William R. Robinson, J. David Wright, Kevin J. Carlisle, Scott Luchau, Steve Koralesky, Laura Yindra, Erik Yusko, and David Pieper

A Window on the Solid State helps students understand and instructors present the structural features of solids.

* Werner and Jørgensen Bond Theory Werner and Jørgensen Bond Theory
David M. Whisnant and Laura Yindra

This simulation begins in the period around 1870 when chemistry is beginning to be organized. The concept, introduced by Kekulé and Couper, of tetravalent carbon atoms capable of linking to each other has permitted the rise of structural concepts in organic chemistry.
