How cool is this?



It just doesn't get any cooler than a whole bunch of periodic table videos, one for each element plus a few special ones like this one about gold, silver, and bronze in honor of the Olympics.

'Cause we're just studying the periodic table at the moment in my honors chemistry class - and because I'm trying to reward my students for checking out my website and this blog - I'm offering up five extra credit points on our first homework notebook for the first five of my current students to email me (at my school email) and I'll double it if those same folks post a comment here, too.

If you're one of those current students, include a mention in your email of what your blogger id is so I can make sure to give you the right credit.

And for the rest of you, just enjoy the coolness of the periodic table.

qqZaZms! I heard something on NPR about how they'll start replacing these with relevant words and help put old books online that way. (Decipher words, they get updated, yadda yadda yadda.) Anyway, can I get points transfered to Segebefia's class?

Dudes...James, Shaan...feel free to contribute a bit, to offer up a thought, an opinion...welcome...

and we may have to have a little chat about the anonymity of the electronic world...there are times when you don't necessarily want the creepy stalker folks out here on the world wide internets to know just who you are...

Craig said...

Better yet, can you email my prof and let them know that I received extra credit. That would be greeaaat.

etstarkweather said...

Alek Beard said...

This is the coolest video I have ever seen! Wow! That guy's amazing and I love chemistry.

andrew said...

they actually have vids for all of the elements (not that I've checked...yet)...

A vid for Uuo? +1 chem cred.

Their chemistry in that one is a little funny also...
