This website provides over 60 QuickTime Movies demonstrating a variety of chemistry principles. These websites can be used within a variety of instructional methods - from classroom demonstrations to open ended, student centered activities. The graphics are realistic and the content is accuracte. Math skills are needed. There is graphic support included in the text which makes the materials usable by English Learners. Reading demands are at high school grade level
