Investigating Mixtures, Solutions, Elements, and Compounds

From the: Matter and Chemistry Series

Vivid video footage and everyday examples help students understand and differentiate mixtures, solutions, elements, and compounds. Additional concepts and terminology: element, pure substance, properties, atoms, molecule, compounds, types of mixtures, suspension, colloid, and alloy.

"...the concise definition of "element" is followed by the real-life examples of silver jewelry and copper pipes. Students are then challenged when the narrator says, "You Decide," and asks viewers to figure out what element is found in a gold ring. This pattern of concept/real-life example/interactive questions is successfully repeated throughout.  An excellent production."
