Absorb Chemistry from Crocodile Clips Generative and Component-Based Software Engineering
A complete on-screen chemistry course, combining unique Crocodile Chemistry lab simulations, interactive animations and investigations, videos and photographs to demonstrate key reactions.
Experiments can be investigated safely and easily, and an involving narrative leads the student through the interactive sections, with test and revision questions. New tools: On-screen charts include Electronic Structures, the Periodic Table and Reactivity Series.
Absorb Chemistry is written by Lawrie Ryan, the acclaimed author of best selling textbooks such as 'Chemistry for You' and 'Advanced Chemistry for You'. His involving narrative gives a framework for the interactive media, leading the student through the topic or giving a basis for a whiteboard lesson.
The key to Absorb courseware is allowing students to think for themselves, rather than simply learning facts. Investigations are used in each unit, with the student operating controls and interpreting results or data. Questions link with these investigations, focusing the student on key learning objectives.
Key principles are animated in Absorb Chemistry with a clean and accessible style being used to illustrate the concept.
Absorb Chemistry also includes simulations created in Crocodile Chemistry. These give an environment where free experimentation in a virtual chemistry lab can be used. They allow reactions to be studied, looking at how changing properties affects the outcome.
Each unit has a media gallery. One example is the interactive elements and these are shown on one page. It lets you use them in two ways: either alone, viewed full-screen for projection in front of a class, or in context within a unit. This lets you incorporate the hundreds of top-quality interactive elements into your own teaching however you choose, as well as having them as part of the complete course. When using the media in-context, they can still be temporarily expanded to a full-screen view, and they can be floated above the text to ensure that they're always visible.
Each unit has questions within the narrative, designed to break up the text and check understanding of what has been covered. They can be used as a basis for classroom discussion while presenting on a whiteboard, or to help involve pupils studying alone. Each unit also has a set of test questions at the end. These cover what has been studied in the unit.
Absorb Chemistry has 21 sections, each consisting of 3-10 units. Each unit has questions within the narrative, designed to break up the text and check understanding of what has been covered. Each unit is suitable for a lesson lasting from 40 minutes to 1 hour, and can be broken into smaller parts.
