How I Use It
The video is amazing but long. Have the students watch the video on their own time or have a movie night or integrate clips into whole-class discussions. I use the interactive tool for homework but it's a little tough to assess learning.
My Take
I love the whole suite from NOVA. The video allows real learning. As others have said, the interactive app is basic but, for it brings atomic structure together with molecules.
