Journey through the exciting world of chemistry with Nobel laureate Roald Hoffmann as your guide. The foundations of chemical structures and their behavior are explored through computer animation, demonstrations, and on-site footage at working industrial and research labs. This series was produced in 1988.
This resource is a bundle of question sets to accompany the episode described below. Each episode’s YouTube video is linked in the episode title below and in the Google Docs files. I have established a convenient episode index page for The World of Chemistry. Episodes are also available on the Internet Archive. Transcripts can be found at the Internet Archive. Roald Hoffmann has a World of Chemistry web page.
1. THE WORLD OF CHEMISTRY (28 minutes)
The relationships of chemistry to the other sciences and to everyday life are presented. [The Internet Archive’s transcript does not match the video episode.]
2. COLOR (28 minutes)
The search for new colors in the mid 1800s boosted the development of modern chemistry.
3. MEASUREMENT: THE FOUNDATION OF CHEMISTRY (28 minutes)
The distinction between accuracy and precision and its importance in commerce and science are explained.
4. MODELING THE UNSEEN (28 minutes)
Models are used to explain phenomena that are beyond the realm of ordinary perception.
5. A MATTER OF STATE (28 minutes)
Matter is examined in its three principal states—gases, liquids, and solids—relating the visible world to the submicroscopic.
6. THE ATOM (28 minutes)
Viewers journey inside the atom to appreciate its architectural beauty and grasp how atomic structure determines chemical behavior.
Lessons of Phyz advantages:
- A heavy font ensures high legibility even in dim lighting
- Questions are designed to be answered while the video plays—quick, simple responses keep students engaged without requiring deep reflection that would take them out of the presentation
- Question types are mixed: fill-in-the-blank, multiple choice, and short answer are common; in some cases, matching or simple illustrations are involved
- "Play to the buzzer": the last question in the set is answered during the final seconds of the video
- I am a classroom teacher; I design resources for use with high school students
- If you find competing products online, by all means check them out. They may be cheaper; they may be free. None of them will be as professional, polished, or classroom-ready as this one.
The Google Docs files provided in this product are suitable for use online for remote instruction and make-up work and/or for printing and photocopying for in-person instruction. They are ready to use whichever way you need to use them.
