Reproduction of a resource page for second year IB Diploma Chemistry students that used to reside on my homepage. It contains links to online PowerPoint slides on the topics I covered with my students when I taught them a long time ago. Revamping my homepage also involved removing many of these pages, hence the reproduction for the benefit of those who use them.
An introduction to a topic about a table with music, dances, with images small and big, old and new, simple and complex...and with a lot of rejoicing in the air! :)

IB Diploma Chemistry introductory PowerPoint presentation I would have started off an academic year with...and it's all about love...for the love of the subject! :)
When I used to teach, I would begin a topic with a multi-media PowerPoint presentation to introduce the topic and for a few other reasons, one of which was to get some laughter from the students!
Guess what topic this was an introduction to? Follow the link to find out!
A simple experiment involving inversion of a conical flask over burning a candle in a dissection tray with some water can be a stimulus for open-ended, really really fun, very very challenging -- to both students and teachers alike -- problem, covering some fundamental high school chemistry.
