Instructional Ideas

  • Model how to use the simulation and then pull a small group for those still struggling
Classroom Considerations

  • In game mode, participants check answers; if answers are not correct, they get two more opportunities
  • Teachers can create a free account and then have access to teacher tips, lesson plans, and video primer
Pros

  • In Introduction mode, participants can use visual tools to help them see if the equation is balanced after entering numbers for each molecule; great for visual learners and beginners
  • In Game mode, molecular views help individuals visually see if equation is balanced
  • Coefficients must be simplified to be marked correct
Cons

  • None
