My rating of this resource: ****

My experience using this resource:

Topic I was teaching:

My learning goal for which this resource was used:
Show how shape of molecules are determined by electrons surrounding a central atom. Better visualization.

Course Level:
A.P., Honors or Advanced

How I/my students used the resource:
used to visualize the difference in effect of lone pair vs bonding electron pairs. To compare shapes and understand the reasons that methane is not flat as it appears in a book.

Value Added:
Provides visualization or animation, Provides additional content, Provides assessment opportunity

Good explanation, easy to use

It includes extended octets which I don't teach to honors or 1st year students which may be confusing if they went to the site themselves.
