Math --Science -- Integrated Math and Science -- Integrated Math and Art



The following activities target a middle and high school population although some of the activities are approachable by more advanced elementary school students.

The activities are also ideal for the general public to review basic concepts and learn about new technologies.

The pages make extensive use of javascripts, and Java applets making for a more interactive environment.

MORE ON THE FULLERENE

This is the molecule has been making headlines 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.

CARBON CHIME

Learn how to use the online molecular modeling plug-in chime.


CARBON 3-D

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
EXPLAIN IT WITH MOLECULES

Integrate Science and Technology
How does soap work? -- Why is diamond so hard?-- Why do carcinogens like nicotine cause cancer? -- Why is a salt crystal cubic in shape? -- This is an interactive activity using the JMol applet which allows students to interact with molecules. No plug-in is needed.

WATER AND ICE

Why does ice float? Why is water so important to life? Use simple molecular modeling software to view water and ice. Great science project ideas.
