Formulae and symbols

Grade 8 and 9s walk into a confusing array of shorthand symbols as they enter high school.  In science, a great many of these symbols are fixed, international occurences and the learners have to memorise them.

This slide show is an attempt to make it easier on the kiddo’s with regards to memorising.  I hope to help them with understanding the system, so that they don’t have to spend extra time memorising symbold.


Introduction to the Periodic Table

Getting students excited about Chemistry with regards to real life is a bit of a headache.  Every year, I kick off the Chemistry module with a bit of background on the Periodic Table and the uses of the elements we work with most often.  If you use this, be prepared to spend approximately 2 hours on it.  But it is well worth it.
