Sentinel Secondary School, West Vancouver, BC
- Crystal Violet Lab -- Here is one of Vernier's presenters going through the Crystal Violet Decolorization lab. He shows how the data can be manipulated to determine the order of the reaction.
- Barry's Can Demo -- Here is a YouTube video from the physic teacher's web site showing how he does that Diet Soda can demo.
- Flinn's eLearning Site -- Flinn has organized their videos about various teaching ideas and demonstrations into a professional development site. You can set up an account for free. There is a cost if you want to get university credit. There are great ideas here.
- Atomic Orbitals -- This site allows you to display the various atomic orbitals (s, p, d, & f), but moreover, allows you to display all of a certain subshell together to see how they overlap to form a sphere of electron probability.
- Magnetic Water Molecule Kit -- This is from Educational Innovations. I really like this kit to illustrate ice crystals, hydration of ions, and intermolecular forces of attraction.
- Ben Ku's Web Site -- I mentioned Mr. Ku, my former teaching colleague at South Pasadena High School. Here is a link to his web site.
- Large Post-It Notes -- Here is the link to popping.com where those huge post-it type notes were purchased. They stuck really nicely to the glass. I have found in my classroom that they don't stick as well to the walls. They stick nicely to a clean white board, however.
- Extreme Glow Nightsticks -- Here is the company where I purchased those bright, short-lived light sticks for the kinetics demonstration. You need to purchase quite a few (100) to get free shipping. Remember, when they quote a price like $8.50 each, they are talking about a bag of 10 nightsticks. Keep them in the refrigerator to make them last longer.
