Top 3 Resources for When You Spaced Out in Chem Class (and Now You Have to do Your Homework)

Let’s face it we all get distracted once and a while.  Unfortunately, sometimes this happens when key information is being conveyed in chemistry class.  Or maybe you were paying attention but you just need a refresher.  Where can you get the information you need for your homework right now?  Try these great resources!

1.  Watch a video from Khan Academy
Sometimes it’s easier to learn from a video than from a textbook.  Khan Academy has high quality videos on a wide range of chemistry topics and includes useful questions and answers posted  by other viewers.  Did you miss your class’s discussion of acids and bases?  Not sure what the word “stoichiometry” means?  This is the place for you.

2.  Take a look at the Mathmol Text Book from NYU
OK, so you don’t want to ask your friend what the difference between mass and volume is.  That would just be embarrassing, right?  But if you google it, you might get a horrible, unreliable site made by a third-grader.  Instead check out the Mathmol Text Book.  It includes lots of great basic information and you know you can trust it because it is prepared by the New York University Scientific Visualization Center.
