Introduction to Chemical Equilibria
An interactive set of applet-based demonstrations (many modeled as experimental measurements) that illustrate the concepts and calculations of chemical equilibria. The site demonstrates equilibrium processes in a reaction vessel by plotting the concentration of reactants and products over time. The site would be a good supplement for a class in general chemistry or quantitative analysis.
The Web: Design for Active Learning
This page focuses on interactivity as it applies to a cohesive design including, high interface, content, and instructional design. This page is usable in gathering strategies for applying active learning in a college environment, although none are specifically related to analytical chemistry. Unfortunately, several of the links on the page are broken, but there are a number of useful ones.
Drug company GlaxoSmithKline offers this online genetics tutorial designed for kids. The tutorial presents lessons on DNA, genes, heredity, genetic susceptibility to disease, and the role of genetic markers in predetermining risk of disease and medicinal response. Each subject page includes a description of the topic, plus loads of interactive educational games and activities. The educational games are especially well done, although the cartoon-style presentation, which is intended for younger s
Introduction to Mass Spectrometry
This site contains an on-line text on mass spectrometry at the intermediate level. The text gives good general coverage of mass spectrometry instrumentation and applications in very readable format. It contains nice diagrams that provide a visualization of the ionization and mass selection processes. It also contains an overview of applications of mass spectrometry near the end that is different than most sites related to MS. It is especially appropriate for intermediate students.

computer simulation of the demolition of a structure
This is created by VFIFE (V-5), a new finite element technique capable of calculation motion and stresses of a structural system. It is developed by Center for Bridge Engineering Research, National Central University, Taiwan.
computer simulation of structural collapse
This is created by VFIFE (V-5, vector form intrinsic finite element) developed recently at National Central University, Taiwan. V-5 is capable of calculating position changes and body deformation simultaneously. It is based on the mechanics concept of Motion Analysis.
