Catch of the Day - Web-Based High School Chemistry Simulations - 28 Jan 10

Today's catch is Web-Based High School Chemistry Simulations, a resource of the Center for Science Education at EDC
Web-Based High School Chemistry Simulations provides teachers with links to chemistry simulations, organized by the McREL standard and in some cases, national science education standard, to which they correspond.
Catalog of Simulations

Web-Based High School Chemistry Simulations catalogs sites that provide high school students the chance to manipulate variables in a simulated chemistry activity and see the results of their activity. This opportunity encourages students to form hypotheses, test conclusions, and find patterns in the relationships among variables.
Simulations Aligned to McREL Standards
This directory is organized according to which science standard a given web site addresses. A standards-oriented teacher may want inquiry-driven simulations that align to a particular standard. The list of sample chemistry simulations aligns to the McREL standards for 9–12 physical science and to the 9–12 national science education standards.
This material found at Web-Based High School Chemistry Simulations is based upon work supported by the National Science Foundation.

This would have been a life saver when I was taking chemistry...hope students/teachers are taking advantage of tools like this!
