My Notes

This website displays interactive models of the unit cell contents of simple cubic, body-centered cubic, face-centered cubic, and hexagonal close-packed structures, in addition to several simple ionic compounds. Relationships between the close-packed atomic layers, the unit cell contents, and the structures of related ionic materials are highlighted.

Implementation Notes

We combine this with an activity using the ICE solid-state model kits. We also have a set of 3D-printed models of the contents of each of the different types of unit cells.
