AP in the OC
July 25 - 28, 2016
Esperanza High School, Anaheim, CA


  • Ben Ku's Web Site -- I only mentioned Mr. Ku about a hundred times during the APSI.  Here is a link to his web site.
  • FlinnPREP AP Chemistry Course -- We saw the short video describing Flinn Scientific's AP Prep Course for students.  An individual license for the course is $19.95.  It gets even more affordable if you buy for multiple students.  I don't know anyone who has had any experience yet with the course.
  • 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.
  • PASCO Link -- Here is the link for the three things from PASCO.  If you sign up with them, they will send you a .pdf file of their PASCO-POGIL Lab Manual, a code to get $100 off of an order of $200 or more, and a chance to win 8 wireless temperature probes.
  • 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.
  • Show Me -- This is screen casting software that is an iPad app. This look kind of similar to Educreations.
  • CALM (Computer Assisted Learning Method) -- Indiana University has a free homework service for teachers.  Some of the teachers in the group use it and say, while it is not perfect, it is good.  It generates different questions for each student which reduces copying.
  • Edvantage Interactive -- This is the link for those cool-looking paperback workbooks.  There is an order form: 2016 AP SPECIAL PRICING JULY.
