Chemistry in 4D

February 5, 2016

 We used an interesting visualization tool called “Elements 4D”.  We cut out patterns to make cubes.  Each side has a different element on it.  
 After downloading the app, we can look at the cube via the smartphone screen, and see what the element looks like.

  
The block can be rotated to view information about the element, and to get a better view.  Metals are all shiny, phosphorus is red, we learned lots!

  
Another neat feature of he app is that two cubes can be put together and if a compound will be formed, the compound and formula will be shown on the screen

Next week we will be looking at atoms and reviewing how compounds form.
