solvent: the substance in which a solute dissolves to produce a homogeneous mixture solute: the substance that dissolves in a solvent to produce a homogeneous mixture. This website looks super bland but it clearly explains everything. It defines solutions and solvents. It also has illustrations and it explains those super well, I thought.
Chem4Kids.com! This tutorial introduces atoms in chemistry. Other sections include matter, elements, the periodic table, reactions, and biochemistry. Although I know about atoms, I love how this website thoroughly explained everything. I also love that they had the very detailed illustrations. The pictures help me so much as a student. This was my favorite website doing this project.
I love this website because the way they explained thermochemistry was easy to follow along with and made sense to me. For example, the mentioned that thermochemistry is the study of the energy and heat to do with chemical reactions and physical transformations (physical changes). Physical transformations are when a state of matter. And the pictures and illustrations helped a lot as well.
I like this website because while it looks super boring, it is actually very informative. They pointed things out that I haven't thought in that way before. I like how they put it into categories and explain it one at a time instead of all at once and all in your face.
Learn how to distinguish between a chemical property and a physical property of matter. Here's the explanation of the distinction, with examples. I like this because at first they explain the basic differences. At the bottom they have links to where you can click on one basic question and it will expand off of that. I find that super helpful.
Chem4Kids.com! This tutorial introduces the periodic table. Other sections include matter, elements, reactions, and biochemistry. I like this website because the way they thoroughly explained it made sense. I like how they explained the periodic table in groups. That really helps me as a student.
Chem4Kids.com! This tutorial introduces basics of solutions. Other sections include elements, the periodic table, reactions, and biochemistry. This website clearly explains what solutions are and the two main different types. Heterogeneous and Homogeneous. I like how they explain it and go into such detail about it. They also have illustrations that go with it and I found that super helpful.
Parts of an atom and that they make up everything, I already knew that. But this website, I found, was super informative and easy to follow along with. When the atom gets to the point of a lot of protons or electrons gets kind of confusing for me though.
This website tells what thermochemistry is and explains how it is written out in equation form. It also has sections and expands on that- it has a lot of information. It also has examples built in and I found that helpful.
Naming basic chemical compounds is essential to succeed in chemistry. Follow this guide for some basic rules on how chemical compounds get their name, and how to apply names to compounds you are unfamiliar with. How people name compounds and this kind of a thing I actually find interesting. It also clears some questions up, like, how they name them. This website tells how people name and come up with chemical compounds and how they name them.
Properties of matter can be classified as either extensive or intensive and as either physical or chemical. Read more about physical and chemical properties of matter in the Boundless open textbook. I like this website because it has categories you could expand on if you don't understand. I already know what matter and some properties of it are. But this website helps expand the understanding of it.
Interactive periodic table with dynamic layouts showing names, electrons, oxidation, trend visualization, orbitals, isotopes, and compound search. Full descriptions from write-up sources. This website has an interactive periodic table. I chose this website because I'm interested in learning about each element. This website will help me understand more about them.
