Teach the World Chemistry

ChemEd DL aims to provide exemplary digital resources, tools, and online services to aid in teaching and learning chemistry. ChemPaths is a project of the ChemEd DL where high-quality resources are made useful to students by embedding them within the context of a general chemistry textbook, or an individual instructor's own pathway through the textbook. Look at the featured course pathways in the box below, or start your exploration of the full GenChem Textbook by clicking on the link above!



  •  ChemPaths is designed to make learning a student-centered exploration. Learn more about how the navigation is designed, and how you can take notes online using Diigo

  •  This pathway uses videos from the Chemistry Comes Alive! series from JCE to demonstrate wave behavior including standing waves, interference, and confinement. It is a good prerequisite for the Waves to Orbitals pathway. 

  • Chemistry 109 is a one-semester, accelerated, first-year college course in chemistry. Its goals are to build skills in problem solving, analytical reasoning, and laboratory techniques and to build knowledge of atomic and molecular structure, the relationship of structure and function, chemical kinetics, and thermodynamicsThe study of the conversion of energy from one form to another and the availability of energy to do work..

  • Explore a broad range of information about the elements and their properties with the interactive Periodic TableA chart showing the symbols of the elements arranged in order by atomic number and having chemically related elements appearing in columns. Live! Each entry contains images of the elements, the elements' crystalA solid with a regular polyhedral shape; for example, in sodium chloride (table salt) the crystal faces are all at 90° angles. A solid in which the atoms, molecules, or ions are arranged in a regular, repeating lattice structure. structures, videos of their reactions, physical and atomic properties and the ability to chart and sort these properties into graphs.

  • Investigate a collection of 3-D, interactive molecular models of small inorganicPertaining to the chemistry of elements other than carbon and compounds containing at most a small amount of carbon. molecules. Rendered as 3-D Jmol structures, users can manipulate the models to examine molecular structure and bonding and demonstrate molecular geometries, vibrations, symmetry, molecular orbitals and more!

What is the difference between ChemPaths Online Resources and a textbook?

book_cover.jpgChemPaths has been developed as a project of the ChemEd Digital Library to bring chemistry to life using interactive moleculeA set of atoms joined by covalent bonds and having no net charge. viewers, animations and videos. It is based on the textbook Chemistry by John W. Moore, William G. Davies, and Ronald W. Collins, but this text has been modernized, and then extended at your instructor's discretion. Click on "All ChemPaths" at the top of any page to view the complete set of pathways, or start with one of our featured pathways in the showcase above.
