Starting from atoms, see how many molecules you can build. Collect your molecules and see them in 3D!

Sample Learning Goals

  • Describe the differences between an atom and a molecule.
  • Construct simple molecules from atoms.
  • Recognize that the subscript in the molecular formula indicates the number of that atom in the molecule.
  • Recognize that the coefficient indicates the total number of molecules.
  • Associate common molecule names with multiple representations.
