http://www.google.com/sky/

http://ilearntechnology.com/wordpress/wp-content/uploads/2008/07/google-sky.png
What it is: Google comes out with some really incredible tools and Google Sky is definitely one of them. Think Google Earth for the Sky and you will get a pretty accurate picture of what Google Sky entails. Students can get up close and personal with the Solar System, Constellations, the Hubble Telescope Showcase, Backyard Astronomy, Chandra X-Ray Showcase, GALEX Ultraviolet Showcase, and the Spitzer Infrared Showcase. Google Sky also provides students with podcasts about the Earth and Sky. How cool is that? Like Google Earth, students can “zoom in” to a location and pan around. They can also view the sky in different views which include infrared, microwave, and historical. Unlike Google Earth, Google Sky can be viewed right from your web browser without a download which makes it very handy for the classroom.

Programs for the TI-83plus
http://www.sciencegeek.net/APchemistry/ti_progs/ti_programs.shtml

The TI-83plus graphing calculator is used extensively in our AP Chemistry program. It is used in conjunction with the lab component, where we do many labs with the CBL and Vernier probes. In addition, many calculations can be simplified (once the theory is mastered) by use of calculator programs. Below I have linked to some useful programs, most of which I have written or modified. All of the programs are are in zip archives, with a simple readme file. You will need an unzipping program, and a TI graph-link cable and graph-link program for your computer.

Interactive Body Systems

In this activity, Arnold is missing organs from four major body systems. It’s your job to put them back.
On the activity screen, you’ll see an outline of Arnold’s body on the left, and a whole bunch of organs on the right.
When you hit the Play button, the name of an organ system will appear at the bottom of the screen. Your job is to get all of the organs that belong in that system into the body.
But be careful! If you drag in an organ that doesn’t belong, all the organs pop out, and you have to start over!
