Rutherford's Gold Experiment
I rated this educational media as 3 because it was just average. It was quite short and didn't provide much in the way of detail. It had a limited introduction to the man,setting little historical reference, and didn't include he came about his theory. The visual images were quite plain and the interaction was not exciting. With today's technology, I expected more.

After reviewing the links connected to this site, in both the teacher and students categories, most of the links were off topic and did not examine the concept of chemical bonding. There was a range in the type of information provided at the various sites, including information like scientific historical development, general information, to lesson plans. Some of the lesson plan links contained activities, but very few of the lesson plans followed the normally accepted scientific method lab report format that would align them with a scientific inquiry model. The links did not contain truly interactive elements beyond a few that had limited animation.
