Educator Resources

 

Dear Colleagues,

The buttons above link to some of the resources that I use for teaching General Chemistry.  You are welcome to copy any of them for non-commercial, educational purposes.  I will be adding more resources, including successful demos, on a regular basis.  So please check back periodically for updates.

You are also welcome to copy (again, for non-commercial purposes) any of the instructional pages in the 20 subject areas shown on the left.  Most of the instructional material is in the form of individual jpg files, so you can copy and paste the pages that you need into other documents for your teaching needs.

When you are introducing one of the 20 subject areas shown on the left, I recommend assigning your students to read the pages on this website for that unit as an overview of the important concepts associated with that subject area.  I also recommend assigning your students to do the tutorial for that unit in ChemTutor Excalibur after you have completed your presentation of the material for that subject area.  It is an excellent way for your students to prepare for a test on that material.

I welcome any feedback you have and I wish you the best of luck in your teaching career.  You have chosen the noblest of all professions.
