Science Tutorial on the Periodic Table

This week’s science tutorial is about the periodic table of the elements. I assume you already know what the atomic number means, and you understand a little bit about orbitals and electron shells. (If not, go to this video science tutorial). Continue reading Science Tutorial on the Periodic Table

Chemical Properties of Water

This week’s science learning video is about the emergent chemical properties of water. I’ll be getting into these properties in more detail in a future video, but today I’m going to cover the main chemical factor that enables many of Continue reading Chemical Properties of Water

Science Tutor Video on Chemical Bonds

This week’s science tutor video is a foundation for understanding the chemistry of inorganic matter, along with its implications for biology. I cover three types of chemical bonds, but I also get into the Van der Waals interaction because it Continue reading Science Tutor Video on Chemical Bonds

Science tutor video: acids and bases

I’m finally branching out, and adding a little bit of chemistry to my science tutor video series. This short (6-minute) science tutor video covers the established definitions of acids and bases. I’ve also put in a quick tutorial on the Continue reading Science tutor video: acids and bases

Orbitals and Energy Levels Made Simple

A member of the Science Learning Forum had a great idea for explaining orbitals and energy levels. Here’s the video.   I kept this video simple, because I intended it to be a precursor to the upcoming tutorial on photosynthesis. Continue reading Orbitals and Energy Levels Made Simple
