Part 1 - Introduction to molecular modeling and simple software, Part 2 contains Flash animation of a molecular dynamics simulation of a fatty acid protein.

**Why is Molecular
Modeling Important?** Designing
drugs for the future, designing new materials, view a bukeytube
in 3-D

**What
do Some Common Molecules Look Like?**View
in 3-D: water, methane, benzene, aspirin, DNA..

** Where's
the Math?**** ** Part1:
Geometry, symmetry; Part 2: Mathematical Relationships; Part 3:
Overview of MathMol Tutorials..

**Carbon
3 Ways**View
in 3-D graphite, diamond, buckyball, buckytube.

Activity9: Geometry of the Crystal Structure of Ice

Why does ice float... we look at the unique crystal structure of ice crystals.

The benzene molecule has a common geometric shape as does cyclohexane. You will measure angles and learn about the bonds in the benzene molecule.

**Appendix1:
Scientific Notation** Learn to convert
standard notation to scientific notation and vica-versa..

**Appendix
2: Mass** Measure
the mass of an unknown using a triple-beam balance.

**Appendix3:
Volume** Measure
the volume of an unkown using geometric liquid displacement methods...

**Appendix4:
Density** Find
the density of an unknown mass from it's mass and volume..
