NSDL teaching resources related to “molecule”

From pyroclastic compounds to natural hormones and common drugs, this site features detailed chemical information on various molecular compounds. Each month a new molecule is added to the list. Molecule pages connect to either a University Chemistry Department or commercial site in the United Kingdom, the United States, or anywhere in the world. Most descriptions include a history of use, chemical structure, properties, reactivity, and current research and development regarding the respective molecule. Site visitors are encouraged to contribute a molecule description.

This Flash animation provides a detailed explanation of the chemistry and properties of water. Animated diagrams accompanied by written explanations show the configuration of the water molecule, how water molecules link together, what the crystal structure of ice looks like, and how acids and bases are formed. There is also an animated diagram of the pH scale showing the range in which most cellular processes occur and the approximate pH of some common substances. A French translation is available.

The Institute for Mathematics and Applications (IMA) developed this website to promote its conferences and workshops dealing with the applications of mathematics in the study of materials and molecules. Visitors can find information on a particular event’s schedule, participants, and accommodations as well as abstracts. The events dealing with the physical sciences include workshops dealing with atomic motion, macroscopic models, and biophysics as well as a program about environmental and geophysical modeling.

This is the portal for the Concord Consortium’s Science of Atoms and Molecules Project (SAM), a collection of field-tested activities designed to integrate biology, chemistry, and physics. Each activity provides guided explorations through simulations and models, all within a framework that builds a foundation for understanding atomic/molecular structure. The collection features four themes: motion and energy, charge, atoms/molecules, and light. The overarching concept that connects all four is that atoms and molecules are the fundamental basis for all interactions.
