Chemical Thinking Interactives

CT Interactives

This website includes a set of interactive educational resources used to support teaching and learning in introductory chemistry courses, particularly in the Chemical Thinking curriculum. We include links to simulations developed in-house or by other educational groups (e.g., KCVS, Molecular Workbench, PhET) to more actively engage students in the analysis of the properties and behaviors of different chemical systems. We are transitioning to include only simulations developed using HTML5 which are compatible with all types of browsers and devices.These resources have been classified based on the topic or concept that they help address. We use them in the classroom to have students generate data that they can analyze, identify patterns in the properties of a system, test hypothesis, and verify predictions. Your questions, comments, and suggestions are welcomed here.
