Standing Wave Graphic

This page contains a standing wave graphic from an old Apple IIe program. The graphic shows how two traveling waves on the same string result in a standing wave.

AP Chemistry Study Cards

Here are some chemistry and AP chemistry study cards.

Liquid Oxygen
A Lecture Experiment

Using liquid nitrogen, we liquify some oxygen and observe its unique properties.

The Halloween Chemistry Lecture

This page describes the Halloween Chemistry Lecture that has been an SPHS chemistry tradition since 1980.  If you are an SPHS chemistry student, don't visit this page until after Halloween.

Blueprinting on Fabric

Here is an oxidation-reduction laboratory activity put together by one of the students based on a book on Blueprinting on Fabric.

Mole Clip Art

Here is some student-drawn mole clip art to use in your handouts.

Chemistry Wallpaper

Here are 18 wallpapers based on the chapters of our textbook. The graphics are clever and well drawn.

Nitric Acid Acts on Copper
A Lecture Experiment

This is an interesting demonstration with a surprise twist at the end.

Educreations--iPad app

This is a simple-to-use iPad app for making screencasts.  The free version is powerful enough to make quick and dirty tutorials.  I use this app a lot.

Flinn Scientific, Inc.

Here is a link to Flinn Scientific's online site. They offer several online teacher resources besides their usual collection of useful materials.

AP Chemistry Website

This is the official College Board site with information about the Chemistry AP exam and other offerings by College Board.

Create-A-Graph

This is an easy-to-use website for creating graphs. The graphs are great for Gas Law and Kinetics assignments. Be sure to choose the XY Graph. The Line Graph equally spaces your data.

Bozeman Science--AP Chemistry

Teacher Paul Andersen in Montana has made an impressive set of short videos organized by the Six Big Ideas following the AP Chemistry Revision. He uses a lot of concept maps and pHet simulations that give you ideas of how to add to your own teaching.

ChemTours Tutorials

This textbook has wonderful online tutorials that help explain and illustrate important chemical concepts.

Educational Innovations

This group sells lots of fun and useful products. I especially like their thermochromic periodic tables and UV sensitive paints, posters, and T-shirts. They stock pop bottle preforms, poly-ox gel, hand-boilers, etc.

Science is Fun
In the Lab of Shakhashiri

Dr. Bassam Shakhashiri is one of my heroes in chemical education. This is his site where he shows some of the things that make Science Fun.
