ChemPages Prelab Modules 
***It is HIGHLY recommended that you use Firefox when using the ChemPages.  The videos will autoplay in Chrome, which is fine for most pages but can be problematic when there is more than one video on a page.***

Lake Study - Loads a Java applet. This may take a few seconds. Be patient!

Reaction Types and Chemical Logic - Matrix of Knowns | Matrix of Unknowns
***It is HIGHLY recommended that you use Firefox when doing the Chemical Logic exercise.  The videos may not work with other browsers (especially Safari and the latest version of Chrome).*** If you have a PC running Windows 10 and you don't have QuickTime installed, download and install the version found here:; newer versions of QuickTime won't install on Windows 10.  If you encounter a page saying "Access denied", you will need to download and run WiscVPN.
