Classroom Resources: States of Matter
51 – 56 of 56 Classroom Resources
Molecular Motion, Intermolecular Forces | High School, Middle School
Activity: Simulation Activity: Molecular Motion
In this simulation, students will have the opportunity to explore on the molecular level how particles move in three states of matter. They will compare two different substances.
Molecular Motion, Heat, Phase Changes, Melting Point, Heating Curve, Freezing Point, Temperature, Graphing | High School, Middle School
Lesson Plan: Modeling the Melting of Ice
In this lesson, students will create a particulate model of matter that explains energy changes and transfer during a phase change.
Molecular Motion, Density, Physical Properties, Density, Gas Laws, Ideal Gas, Temperature, Pressure, Volume | High School, Middle School
The simulation for the September 2015 issue allows students to investigate the effect of changing variables on both the volume and the density of a solid, a liquid, and a gas sample. Students will analyze the different states of matter at the particle level as well as quantitatively.
Density, Molecular Motion | Middle School, High School
Activity: Simulation Activity: Density Simulation
In this simulation, students will investigate the effect of changing variables on both the volume and the density of a solid, a liquid and a gas sample. Students will analyze the different states of matter at the particle level as well as quantitatively. This lesson accompanies the simulation from the September 2015 issue of Chemistry Solutions.

Simulation: Heating Curve of Water
In the May 2015 issue, students explore the heating curve for water from a qualitative and quantitative perspective. Students compare illustrations of each physical state depicted on the curve and calculate the energy required to transition from one state to another.

Simulation: Comparing Attractive Forces
In the November 2014 issue, students explore the different attractive foreces between pairs of molecules by dragging the "star" image. In the accompanying activity, students investigate different types of intermolecular forces (London dispersion and dipole-dipole). In the analysis that follows the investigation, they relate IMFs (including hydrogen bonding) to physical properties (boiling point and solubility).
