Mathematica CDF Animations

CH101/2 General Chemistry

http://quantum.bu.edu/CDF/index.html

This is a catalog of interactive animations developed by us for use in CH101/2 General Chemistry, a two-semester course intended primarily for science majors, pre-medical students, engineering students who require a one-year course, and other interested students.

We created these animations in the Wolfram Computable Document Format (CDF) for interactive content. To use the animations, first download and install the free Wolfram CDF Player. Once you have installed the CDF Player, for each animation download its CDF document using the link provided and then open the document in the Wolfram CDF player.

Here is the list of the animations, linked to lectures in which they are used and to the animation CDFs.
