Collections provide one way to explore the ChemEd DL learning resources: they are grouped by area of chemistry or type of content. Some collections are entirely free; others require fees (fee-based). Our collections include:
The ChemEd DL has a multitude of specific resources for helping you to find media and lessons for teaching chemistry. There are three resources that bring many of these resources into the classroom in a easy-to-use fashion. .
This interactive periodic table has videos, interactive models of crystal structures, and a multitude of curated and accurate data about each element.
JSmol is used to build interactive molecule viewers that visualize high-level quantum calculation data in an easy-to-use tool.
Specifically geared toward the High School Teacher, this site categorizes lesson plans by standards and uses a lot of the ChemEd DL resources in these outlined lesson plans. By far the most popular of our resources!
