CHM 1020 - General Chemistry II
Computer resources such as ISEE Player for STELLA, a PointPoint Viewer, Chime, and downloadable instructions for the graphing calculator and Excel are on the Physical Sciences Department Webpage.
PowerPoint Introductory Slides (for best animation, 2002/XP version is needed) for Topics covered in class:
All STELLA models needed for projects and classroom activities- click here for a self-extracting zipped file. Download to a disk or your desktop, and then click on the file. It will open a folder of models. The unzipped file will fit on a regular disk!
