Chemistry - Sunflower Learning – www.sunflowerlearning.com
Waves - model of waves defies belief for age 16 – 18. Score 7/10.
Ideas and Evidence - a set of tools to discuss evolution, the discovery of atoms and others. Unusual approach with role playing characters. Need to hear some classroom feedback so we must rate it 6/10 for now.
Overall: the quality is high. The pupil activities outshine anything else out there.
Bonding - clever way to show electrons in bonding using drag and drop dot and cross diagrams. Good value 9/10
Atoms and Ions - looks inside the atom learn about isotopes, electron arrangements and ions. All clearly shown Score 8/10
Diffusion - how gases & liquids diffuse, a solid dissolves and evaporation. Pupils exploration of the concept Score 7/10
Dissolving - how temperature affects solubility or what happens as the solvent evaporates. Add meat and substance to the topic Score 9/10
Periodic Table - trends in the properties of the elements shown by an ingenious 3D periodic table. Great way to see patterns. Score 7/10
Solids, Liquids and Gases - about the particle model there’s more detail here than meets the eye. Good value. Score 8/10
Organic Chemistry - www.organic.rogerfrost.com
100% animation teaching material to fit the way people work.
Multimedia Science School - Plato Learning
Overall: made in the era when making software was expensive. Development was arrested when New Media was bought by Plato Learning many years ago.
