Chemistry PowerPoints

NOTE: As of May, 2014 I am displaying these PowerPoints in the unit organization that we will begin using in the 2014 - 2015 school year. Of course, you are welcome to use them in any order you choose.

This page contains links to the PowerPoint presentations that I will be using in class. Though I place them here to give my students 24/7 access, they may also be used by any teacher or student who can benefit from this resource. I have found that it is much easier to incorporate small, topical presentations into my course. Also, I believe that these become more useful to other teachers when I allow you to organize topics as you choose.

I purchased iSpring 7 Pro, which allows me to post these presentations in Flash, as I have traditionally done. But it also allows me to post these in HTML 5 format, which means that these can now be viewed on mobile devices with HTML 5 enabled browsers, such as iPhones, iPads, and Android devices. iPad users opening the HTML 5 format will be prompted to download iSpring's free viewer for these presentations. Using the free iPad app, you can save the HTML 5 presentations for offline viewing on the iPad. Android users now have an iSpring viewer as well - get if from Google Play.

The new HTML 5 and Flash presentations also have some nice new features. At the top left of the presentation, you will see a tab called "Marker Tools" which contains built-in writing tools such as a marker, highlighter, and eraser. The "Resources" tab gives you quick access to my online review activities for the subject that you are studying. Those activities require Internet access.

For people who want the original PowerPoint file, you can download the PowerPoint Slide Show (.ppsx). Open the file from within PowerPoint, and you will have a fully editable version of the presentation. Modify it, save it, use it however you wish.
