What Is Chemistry?\ke-mə-strē\
"A science that deals with the composition, structure, and properties of substances and with the transformations that they undergo."– Merriam Webster Dictionary.
Organic chemistry is all about C-H bonds and the chemicals made by living organisms.
Inorganic chemistry the branch of chemistry concerned with the elements and all their compounds except those containing carbon-hydrogen bonds. Science Prof Online has many article on inorganic chemistry, including the topics of acids, bases & salts; pH scale; diffusion & concentration gradient, and osmosis & tonicity.
Organic chemistry is the branch of chemistry that focuses on compounds that contain carbon-hydrogen bonds, many of which are large molecule compared to the size of inorganic molecules. Organic molecules originally consisted only of those produced by living organisms, but now also include man-made carbon-based substances such as plastics.
Science Prof Online has many articles on organic chemistry, including the four main groups of organic molecules: carbohydrates, proteins, nucleic acids, lipids, and the monomers that these large polymer molecules are composed of.

Metals, Nonmetals, and Metalloids
Periodic Trends Review - A great interactive multiple choice review activity that contains 30 questions about the periodic trends.
Periodic Trends Review II - Another great interactive review game about the periodic trends. You place elements in order based upon ionization energy, atomic radii, and electronegativity. We will be doing this activity in class, so see if you can do it on your own!!
Visualizing The Trends - This webpage allows you to see a colored coded periodic table depending on the trend you select. Provides information about each element.
Periodic Table Groups - Check to see if you can correctly identify which chemical family elements belong to.
Periodic Table Groups II - A multiple choice interactive to check to see if you can correctly identify which chemical family elements belong to.
Discover the Elements - This visual periodic table contain information about each of the elements. Including the origin of many of the elements names! You will need a Shockwave plug-in from Macromedia, or Internet Explorer 4x.
