Electronic Resources for Science

The electronic resources listed below will help you beter manage your learning this year. Here, you'll find a list of Web 2.0 tools to use to collect, curate, and create resources. You will be sharing your work this year online, with an audience of your choosing, so think about this as you investigate the resources available.

DO NOT use your full name on anything until you bring back a signed release from your parents with permission to do so!

Web 2.0 accounts to create:

Class website: www.chemistar.com
On the class website, click Chemistry. You will be taken to a page containing class resources and downloads. Add this link to your Evernote page. The entire website is mobile-friendly, so you should be able to access any part through your phone, iPod, or tablet.

  1. Find the class calendar. If you're absent, or forgot a paper that you need, you can likely get it here. The calendar is protected only to keep search engines from finding it. The access code is ssscience.
  2. Find and click the link titled What We Did Today for a brief recap, including anything pertinant that was on the board, from a particular day.
  3. Use the login info you were given to access the electronic textbook site. You can't read the book on an iPad, iPhone, and some other devices because it requires Flash, but you can log in and find the site today. Place your login info in Evernote, in your Chemistry Logins note. If you've downloaded the Evernote app to your device, you can go to the note and take a photo of your info right from the note.
  4. Check out the Links page. When you're tempted to randomly Google some info, remember that I've already done that and selected sites where you will likely find what you need. Start with the Links page.
  5. On the LINKS page, find the MSDS section. Select a link and search for a chemical (try sodium chloride). You'll need to be able to look up MSDS information for each chemical you use this year, so get very familiar with a site. I recommend the first link to Flinn. We purchase most chemicals from Flinn and their MSDS are short and sweet - like the one we used in class.
  6. Under Units of Study, you will find a page for each project/unit we will work with this year. Have a look to see what we've alsready done and where we will be going. What information can you find on this page?
  7. Once StudentVue and ParentVue are ready for you, they will be linked here as well.
