Chemistry: Chemical Equations
These sites will help students learn the rules to balancing chemical equations. Students can study the law of Conservation of Mass. Quizzes, tutorials, and sample problems are available on many of the sites. Included is an eThemes resource on molecular models.
Chemistry: Periodic Table and More
This site has a chemistry dictionary as well as the periodic table. NOTE: The site includes ads and a forum.
Los Alamos: Periodic Table of the Elements
Each element has various sections on either "History," "Forms," "Compounds," "Isotopes," "Uses," "Handling," "Properties," or "Costs."
It's Elemental: The Periodic Table of Elements
Students can play the "Element Balancing" game to practice balancing an equation.
Chemical Elements and Symbols Quiz
Students can take a ten-question quiz on the symbols for the chemical elements.
Dr. Wong's Tutorial on Balancing Equations
Students can use this interactive self-checking tutorial to practice balancing an equation.
Fun Based Learning
This site has a variety of chemistry games such as "Element Quiz," "Classic Chembalancer," "Review Chembalancer," and "Brain Boggle Chembalancer." NOTE: The site includes ads.
Students can test their balancing skills with this interactive activity.
How Can I Balance an Equation?
This site has an explanation, practice problems, and solutions for the practice problems.
Molecules and Compounds
This site has a glossary and quizzes on "Interpreting Formulas" and "Classifying Compounds."
This one-page PDF file has students practice the cross-over method of balancing equations.
