The Neo/SCI Buffer Solutions Neo/LAB AP Chemistry is computer-based interactive exercises on buffer solutions creation given a target pH; measurement of the pH changes when acid and base are added, and determination of the ratio of acetic acid to sodium acetate that provides the greatest buffering capacity for advanced placement (AP) chemistry students in grades 11-12, a narrated tutorial, assessments of student comprehension, and customized teacher resources. This software provides a realistic, simulated laboratory environment. Activities include equipment manipulation, variable changes, and results viewing. Results are recorded and data is analyzed in an electronic notebook. The comprehensive tutorial offers self-paced and individualized lessons, with illustrations, animations, and microscopic imagery. The tutorial covers the following topics: equilibrium, Le Chatelier’s principle, conjugate pairs, Lewis acids, Lewis bases, pOH and pH, and laboratory skills and techniques. Terms within the text link to an included glossary. Assessments evaluate student comprehension in preparation for the AP chemistry examination, and can also be taken in practice or test mode. Practice mode provides instant feedback, at the same time as test mode grades and tracks student progress.
Teacher resources include customized test and worksheet creation, in addition to customized multimedia tutorials and presentations. A library of images and graphics is included to be used in creating tutorials and presentations. The resources can also be saved in XML or HTML file formats for Internet get entry to. Teacher resources also include printable handouts, in addition to Internet link get entry to from within the software. Internet links connect the user to a choice of resources To be had for teachers on the Neo/SCI website. Neo/SCI Buffer Solutions Neo/LAB AP Chemistry software is compatible with Microsoft Windows 2000, Windows XP, or Windows Vista, and Mac OS 9.2 or OS X, and is To be had as an individual or network license. An individual license is valid for a single installation; a network license is valid for an unlimited selection of installations in a single building. The software comes in a 7.5 x 5.25 inch (H x W) plastic clamshell case. (H is height, the vertical distance from lowest to highest point; W is width, the horizontal distance from left to right.)
Science education products incorporate applied math and science principles into classroom projects. Teachers in pre-K, elementary, and secondary classrooms use science education kits and products alongside science, technology, engineering, and math (STEM) curriculum to demonstrate STEM concepts and real-world applications through hands-on activities. Science education projects include a broad range of activities, such as practical experiments in engineering, aeronautics, robotics, energy, chemistry, physics, biology, and geology.
