12 Excellent Chemistry Apps for High School Students
Another collection of good educational iPad apps specifically curated from iTunes App Store for high school teachers and students. These are apps to help students with chemistry learning from understanding the elements, molecules and atoms to exploring chemical reactions.They provide students with activities, video lessons, simulated experimentations, periodic tables and several other materials to boost their chemistry learning. Check them and share with us your feedback. Links to the apps are under the visual.
1- Wolfram General Chemistry Course Assistant‘This comprehensive app for chemistry will help you quickly solve your homework problems, ace your tests, and quiz your understanding of basic chemistry concepts so you’re prepared for your courses.’
2- The Elements by Theodore Gray‘The Elements: A Visual Exploration is not just a reference app, it is a rich and engaging love story of the periodic table, told in words and pictures, and allowing you to experience the beauty and fascination of the building blocks of our universe in a way you’ve never seen before.’3- EleMints: Periodic Table‘EleMints is a revolutionary periodic table for the science geek in all of us. Boasting phenomenal retina graphics and features such as element properties, a molar mass calculator, a plot graph and much more, EleMints will inspire you to bring out your inner mad scientist.’4- Building Atoms, Ions, and Isotopes HD‘With the Building Atoms, Ions, and Isotopes app, explore the composition of the elements. Build atoms, ions, and isotopes by selecting appropriate numbers of protons, neutrons, and electrons.’5- ChemCalc‘This is a convenient chemistry tool for students and professionals to calculate molecular mass (molecular weight) of compounds and learn basic properties of chemical elements on iPad.’6- Atom in a Box HD‘Rewritten from scratch for the iPad, Atom in a Box HD is an aid for visualizing the Hydrogen atomic orbitals, the three-dimensional states that the electron occupies in Hydrogen, a prime and otherwise unwieldy example of Quantum Mechanics. ’
7- Physics Chemistry Maths Formulas: Formula MAX‘Formula MAX is a universal app with a collection of over 1100+ Physics, Chemistry and Maths formulas, more formulas to be added constantly through updates. Use your Formula MAX app across your iOS devices with exclusive device based UI, with just one purchase. ’8- Electrons‘Electrons is a charged particle simulator for iPad. It allows you to create dozens of positively or negatively charged particles, either freely roaming in space, or contained within conducting bodies. You can observe complex particle interactions and resulting electric forces, create capacitors, simulate a lightning rod, a cathode ray tube (CRT) and much, much more.’9- NOVA Elements‘Did you ever wonder why the periodic table is shaped the way it is, what gives each element its own unique set of properties, or even how elements combine to make everyday objects such as a cup of coffee? With “NOVA Elements,” explore an interactive periodic table, play a game hosted by David Pogue, or watch the two-hour NOVA program, “Hunting the Elements.”’10- iSpartan‘iSpartan is a versatile app for molecular modeling on the iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch. The app allows any chemist fast and easy access to computational methods that have proven reliable for a large range of molecules.’
11- VideoScience‘A growing library of over 80 hands-on Science lessons that are great for home and the classroom. These short videos demonstrate inexpensive and easy to recreate experiments that are designed to inspire and excite kids of all ages.’
12- Chemistry Formula Practice Free‘Chemistry Formulas Practice stimulates students’ mastery of the fundamental skill of naming compounds and writing formulas. The practice categories include ionic and molecular compounds, acids, bases, polyatomic ions, hydrocarbons, and organic functional groups.’
