Reciprocal Net: Crystals and Chemicals in Everyday Life
This web page contains three interactive tutorials for secondary learners on the common chemicals and molecular compounds found in everyday life. The first tutorial, <i>House and Garden</i> is appropriate for Grades 4-6. The second, <i>Do You Know Your Molecules</i>, is an interactive problem set for Grades 6-9. The last tutorial, <i>Symmetry and Point Groups</i>, is targeted to high school chemistry and preparatory chemistry courses. Reciprocal Net is a database of information about molecular structures. The project involves research scientists from a number of universities who collaborate to provide educators, students, and the general public with learning tools related to crystallography, chemistry, and biochemistry.
