Here you will find exemplary digital resources, tools, and online services; your 24:7 aid for teaching and learning chemistry. A collaborative, community-driven effort, ChemEd DL is the place for sharing your work and benefitting from what others have done. The ChemEd DL has been hosted by Hope College starting in 2017 to keep alive the work from over a decade of talented chemistry educators.
Most people remember chemistry from their schooldays as largely incomprehensible, a subject that was fact-rich but understanding-poor, smelly, and so far removed from the real world of events and pleasures that there seemed little point, except for the most introverted, in coming to terms withits grubby concepts, spells, recipes, and rules. Peter Atkins wants to change all that.In this Very Short Introduction to Chemistry, he encourages us to look at chemistry anew, through a chemist's eyes, in order to understand its central concepts and to see how it contributes not only towards our material comfort, but also to human culture.
This Annenberg Learner introductory chemistry course consists of 13 half-hour videos. It is intended for high school and college students, as well as teachers who want to learn more about cutting-edge applications of chemistry— including energy and the environment, biotechnology, and material science.
