The main topics covered in this library are: Significant Figures, Scientific Notation, Density, Stoichiometry, Nuclear Chemistry, VSEPR Theory, Atomic Structure, Covalent and Ionic Bonding, Thermochemistry, and Gases.
The Photographic Periodic Table
The Khan Academy
A not-for-profit, open-source project in which instruction is provided in the form of colorful, narrated illustration videos for getting additional help understanding the material, appropriate for Chem 1, Chem Honors, Organic, and AP Chem (and for many other subjects as well).
Dynamic Periodic Table
A feature-loaded interactive periodic table.


Start WebElements
WebElements aims to be a high quality source of chemistry information on the WWW relating to the periodic table. Coverage is such that professional scientists and students at school interested in chemistry and other sciences will all find something useful.
Periodic Table of Videos
This channel has a video about each element on the periodic table. With help from some clever chemists, I've done all 118 - but that's not the end of our journey!
Chalkbored Chemistry 11 Page
Contains worksheets, lesson notes, study notes, and PowerPoints of many topics that we cover.
Chemistry Articles and Resources
Howstuffworks: How Atoms Work
In this article, we will follow this fascinating story of how discoveries in various fields of science resulted in our modern view of the atom. We will look at the consequences of knowing the atom's structure and how this structure will lead to new technologies.
Basic chemistry help is available here for high school or college students. Chemtutor begins with the fundamentals and gives expert help with the most difficult phases of understanding your first course in chemistry. Chemtutor is not necessarily a complete text for your course or a complete outline, but we are proud to offer some insightful help in the parts of primary chemistry that have been, from our experience, the hardest for students to grasp.
Animated Gas Lab
Welcome to the Animated Gas Lab! Gases have various properties which we can observe with our senses, including the gas pressure, temperature, mass, and the volume which contains the gas. Careful, scientific observation has determined that these variables are related to one another and the values of these properties determine the state of the gas.
Chemical Reaction Stoichiometry Web Site Home Page
Tutorials and applets to help you better solve stoichiometry problems. Homepage
Resources for Chem 1 and Chem AP students. Tutorials
With an emphasis on applicability to high school chemistry.
The Chem Team
The ChemTeam provides study resources in all standard topics for students in high school and Advanced Placement chemistry.
An excellent source of study guides and tutorials (including flash cards) for chemistry and AP chemistry.
An Exponential Notation Meta Page
Here are collected pointers to resources on exponential notation, and the related scientific notation, orders of magnitude, powers of ten, engineering notation, and significant figures.
School for Champions: Succeed in Physical Science
The purpose of these free online lessons is to give you a start at improving your scientific knowledge. The material combines physics and chemistry fundamentals in a way that will allow you to excel in future science studies and even become a scientific champion. Contains sections for physics and chemistry, and a section on Tricks for Good Grades. A great resource.
This site was created as an 8th grade science project several years ago, and the author has continued to upgrade it since then. It has many properties of the elements that are useful to us in this course.
About Making Science Make Sense: Molecule Man's Cyber-rific Periodic Table of the Elements
This site is sponsored by Bayer to help improve scientific literacy. This is the source of the periodic table on the Homepage.
