Web Site of the Week: Creative Chemistry
Persons with a penchant for benzene rings, organic chemistry, and other related matters will find the Creative Chemistry a welcome addition to their references. The site collects hundreds of worksheets, teaching notes, and interactive quizzes for educators to use as they see fit. The site is maintained by Nigel Saunders, who has a biochemistry doctorate from the University of York, and includes twenty different thematic areas, including Balancing Equations, Concentration Game, The Slide Puzzle, and Chemistry Calculator. One section that should not be missed is called Molecular Models; as the name suggests, it features molecular models that visitors can play with at their leisure. Some of the models include alkanes, octahedral molecules, and isomers of organic compounds. Finally, visitors can search the site for specific topics via a helpful search engine. [KMG]
