I made a tiny, simple little interactive animation thingy to illustrate particles in a clunky kind of way. Just the three states of matter. Please note: in order to provide a rich interactive experience, my interactive resources are mini-web sites local to your computer. After unzipping, they comprise a folder containing the main .html file and another folder containing the graphic resources and my coding to make the resource work. Double click on the .html file and the resource will work in your web browser… If, however , you move or delete any of the files from this hierarchy, the resource will not work. stdobbs.com ©D&D production

I made a little cartoon to illustrate biceps and triceps contracting and relaxing to move the arm. Simply double click on the .html file, and it should open in your browser. Now has radius and ulnar.

I set this to a funky beat, in an attempt to aid memory. Play it over and over again. If it’s too large to download, you could play it directly from this page, pressing the fill screen button. Why not play it at the end of many lessons, getting students to chant the names of the functional groups as they appear? A real process of learning.

I have made a deliberately clunky representation of this, using gel-pen type colours. Just the sort of thing to amuse some sixth formers. Relish its unprofessionalness. I do.
