Wednesday – Post number two: Revision

Video from Tyler Dewitt on Youtube – Writing formulae for ionic compounds. Visit his channel for more useful Chemistry videos.


Wednesday – The sharp end of the year

April 24, 2013

With the exams approaching, you can expect to see more revision themed posts from me. And I was intending to start that trend about now; however, a couple of really interesting stories in the news caught my eye and I was distracted:

Via the BBC – Wildlife experts are due to discuss the reintroduction of bears (once a native species) into the Scottish Highlands. Click the pic for a full story.

From New Scientist – A miracle material that looks like a liquid yet shatters like glass and happens to be called Oobleck! Once again a quick click takes you to the full story.

And finally, bringing things back to revision, feel free to tweet me (@MFEbden) with any questions about your exam prep.

Good thing my new year’s resolution wasn’t to produce more blog posts! I would’ve failed miserably. Lots of revision on the cards from here on in though and I intend to use this blog and my Twitter as much as possible to help out with that.
Starting today with a video that should give you A-level chemists a few hints on how to determine shapes of molecules:

The star of the video is an American scientist and teacher called Tyler Dewitt. He’s got lots more great videos on various topics on his Youtube channel.

Tuesday – Welcome back and get practicing!

June 8, 2010

Legendary golfer Arnold Palmer once holed an incredible putt only to be told by a member of the crowd “Wow! That was a seriously lucky shot!” To which Arnold replied: “It’s a funny thing, the more I practice the luckier I get!”

Palmer won 92 tournaments in his long career, which earnt him the nickname “the King

The moral of this story? Get revising you lot!

Thursday – Testing times

February 4, 2010

I’ve just realised that almost all the groups I teach are due to take tests soon so perhaps people might be doing some revising? And perhaps they might find some study tips useful?

And obviously you might need a little break from revising
