This website is being built for the 4th edition of Conceptual Chemistry, which has a sequence of topics somewhat different from the 3rd edition. Shown below is a list of the videos as they appear for the third edition (CC3e). Beneath each listing is a hyperlink to the same video as organized by the 4th edition (available through this website).

It is expected that most students using the 3rd edition will be viewing the CCAlive videos through the DVD-rom that comes free with each 3rd edition textbook. The following CC3e to CC4e cross-references are being provided primarily for students who are unable to use the CC3e DVD-rom because of incompatibilities with Windows Vista.
