Speed: Nothing You Can’t Take

speed nothing you can't take-feat image

When I used to teach, I would begin a topic with a multi-media PowerPoint presentation. The objectives were to:

  1. introduce the most important concept in the topic,
  2. get my students’ imagination going,
  3. put the topic into wider context, and
  4. start the topic with some…laughter!!

I thought some teachers and students might find those presentations useful. So I’ll be sharing them here as well.

The following, if you have’t already guessed it, is the introduction to the topic Kinetics, the study of the rate (speed) of chemical reactions. (This is the second post in the series. You can find the introductory presentation I used for Chemical Bonds here.)

Of course, since I didn’t record the presentation, my commentaries are missing. But it might be interesting (challenging?) for you to try to figure out the commentary I must have accompanied each slide with!

Update January 6, 2017

Google Drive publish function stopped working and so, finding no alternative, I have had to convert the PowerPoint presentation into a movie.

What do you think I accompanied the slides with? Or what was I trying to get across with those images?

Be my guest, have a go…in the comment section below!
