  • The atom and the elements
  • The heterogeneous mixture
  • Ionic versus covalent chemical bonds
  • How to balance chemical equations

Our expert instructors created these 5-10 minute videos to improve your knowledge of chemical properties and matter. Each lesson features a quiz that you can take to assess your understanding of the lesson material. If it turns out you need to go back over any of the lesson material, you can refer to the accompanying video transcript. You can also go right to any specific place in the video using our timeline tool, which operates off of keywords to speed you directly there.

What is An Atom? - Definition & Examples

1. What is An Atom? - Definition & Examples

After watching this video, you will be able to explain what an atom is, how it is structured, what they are made from, and give some examples of elements. A short quiz will follow.

What Are Elements?

2. What Are Elements?

Look around you. What do you see? Elements are everywhere. They are the building blocks of all matter on Earth. In this lesson, we will discuss what an element is, how elements are written as symbols, and how elements are the building blocks of all matter.

Heterogeneous Mixture: Definition & Examples

3. Heterogeneous Mixture: Definition & Examples

You come into contact with mixtures every day. Most of the foods we eat and drink are some form of mixtures. In this lesson, you will learn about heterogeneous mixtures and the types of heterogeneous mixtures recognized by scientists.

Chemical Bonds: Ionic vs. Covalent

4. Chemical Bonds: Ionic vs. Covalent

Atoms make up everything on Earth, and chemical bonds are what hold those atoms together. In this lesson, we'll discuss two very important types of chemical bonds: covalent and ionic.

Chemical Reactions and Balancing Chemical Equations

5. Chemical Reactions and Balancing Chemical Equations

In this lesson, you'll learn how to balance a chemical reaction equation using the conservation of matter law. You'll also learn how to write both word and formula equations, what the subscripts after a letter mean and what the numbers in front of compounds mean.
