This research discusses applications and development of web-based interactive tutorials and exercises for redox (reduction-oxidation) chemistry. These tutorials and exercises are delivered as HTML files (created using Macromedia Dreamweaver) on the Web. The tutorials and the practice problems were developed and used by me as a classroom presentation and by students as outside class review. The learning theory that I used as the basis for the on-line materials is Constructivism, a theory that has existed for over one hundred years but has not been widely applied in schools. Modern technology is significantly impacting society and our daily life. Schools have and will continue to reflect societal change. The material created will be used as part of an on-going investigation into the strong link between effective use of modern technology and the theory of constructivism.
