Interactives are digital learning tools that are designed to engage students in scientific inquiry and to enhance their conceptual understanding of difficult topics. The interactives page contains three biology interactives that you can explore to get a direct feel for the dynamic nature of our interactives.


Below is a screen capture video of our Atom Builder interactive, which enables students to build atoms with protons, neutrons, and electrons. In this interactive, students can examine the effect of each particle on the identity of the atom, the charge, and the mass number. The immediate feedback allows students to construct a working definition for each property of an atom.
