About This Site
This site is primarily a place to host online materials that I have created for use with my own science classes. I don’t mind sharing, so it is a public place. Feel free to link to and use these materials for your own (non-commercial) purposes.
All the materials here are html5 based and work without the need for plugins and other technologies. They should be viewable on any device running a recent version of a modern browser, although some might not be suitable for small phone screens.
Most of these materials require some engagement and interaction from the student, if only in a minimal way in some cases. Some involve experimentation and exploration on the user’s part, others might be suitable content presentation for a flipped classroom setting.

Many of these resources use licensed stock images. It is NOT OK to separate the images from the resource and incorporate them into other projects.
