The following math and science activities target a middle
and high school population although some of the activities
are approachable by more advanced elementary school students.
The math and science activities
are also ideal for the general public to review basic
concepts and learn about new technologies.

TO MOLECULAR MODELING K-12 NEW
||This interactive lab
which was originally used with Chime and Jmol has been updated using Jsmol. It no longer requires Java instead
using HTML5 and therefore runs on Macs and Ipads. Computer generated models of molecules is considered a stepping stone into the Biotechnology Field.

INTERNATIONAL MATH AND SCIENCE TESTS
the sample tests Edinformatics designed, use actual questions
from the TIMSS (Third International Math and Science Survey).
Tests consist of 25 questions from each of the representative
groups. Test is marked online and can be compared to other students
that take the test -- Grades 3,4,7,8 ,10,12 and Advanced Mathematics
atoms, elements, compounds, molecules? What do atoms and molecules
look like? What are ionic and covalent compounds? How do we
write a chemical formula?
are the six simple machines? Simple machines are the basis of many concepts in Engineering. What is mechanical advantage and how do we calculate
it for a lever?|

in Nanotechnology and now the drug industry also has interests in it. What does
it look like? How big is it? In this interactive activity you will measure the
diameter of a fullerene molecule using JAVA MAGE , a molecular modeling Java applet.|
how to use the online molecular modeling plug-in chime.
Same module as 'carbon molecule', but images are generated using
the molecular modeling plug-in chime. This allows molecules to be rotated and
viewed in 3-D |
