Changing states of matter with IntoScience

With IntoScience, students delve into activities and rich visual interactives to understand the processes which change one state of matter to another. These processes include melting, freezing, evaporation, condensation and sublimation. Vivid simulations illustrate what is happening at a particle level as these changes occur. A global perspective is included, demonstrating how changing states occur [...]

IntoScience students experiment with compression

  With IntoScience, students investigate and explore the common states of matter: gas, solid and liquid.  Interactive tasks require students to analyse and discuss the different states of matter under various conditions. Students review the effects of changes in pressure and temperature on different objects and what is occurring at a particle level, to better [...]
