The periodic table is an iconic summation of the physical and chemical properties of the elements. It was formulated before the structures of atoms were known, simply by noting patterns in experimental data. We now know chemical properties are determined largely by an element’s electron configuration. The periodic table can be a valuable tool in understanding chemistry. With this in mind this app has been designed as a learning aid to help the beginning chemistry student gain intuition and insight. This app was created using Electron.
Web browser based molecular visualization is a powerful pedagogic tool. Using the open source Jmol/JSmol viewer you can create compelling movies, tutorials and applications for chemistry and biochemistry. Interactive sample from Lodish (2016), Molecular Cell Biology, 8th edition:
Labeling a figure can be an effective way to build discipline vocabulary. Coupling this with meaningfully feedback can further understanding. Using in-house production tools and a small HTML5 library we can economically turn existing book art into interactive activities. Sample from Hills (2020), Principles of Life, Third edition:
