Lecture Notes - PowerPoint presentations including definitions, diagrams, pictures, and sample problems. Use these as a supplement to your own class notes or as a review.

Review Sheets - Practice problems with answer keys and checklists of key concepts. Use these to review before a test.

Science Links - Find information on the Internet about how science applies to the "real world", visit other science sites, and access interactive review materials. Texas students, be sure to check out the TAKS Review site!

Other Resources - Print out a periodic table and helpful reference information. View some of the handouts I gave my students to help them get organized, keep a proper lab notebook, make an accurate graph, and study for tests.

 

For Teachers

Please feel free to use and modify any of the materials on this site for use in your own classes. If you do so, I would appreciate hearing from you.

Lecture Notes - PowerPoint presentations including definitions, diagrams, pictures, and sample problems.

Lesson Materials - Worksheets and laboratory handouts.

Review Sheets - Practice problems with answer keys and checklists of key concepts.

Science Links - Links that you and/or your students may find helpful. Texas teachers, be sure to check out the TAKS Review site!

Other Resources - Miscellaneous information on how I ran my classroom. Check this out if you want to see how another science teacher addressed classroom policies, independent student research (i.e. science fair), lab notebooks, extra credit, and more. There's also a nice periodic table and reference sheet that I designed for students to use for reference during tests.
