Visualize Science This site will let both students and teachers interact with material on the web, rather than just reading text. Topics include: light and optics, mechanics, electricity and magnetism, life science, and wave theory.
Science 24 Interactivity Mr. Cormie has created some excellent interactivities for the new Science 24 curriculum. Activities include crosswords, fill in the blank, multiple choice, matching and word scramble puzzles. He will soon have all sixteen chapters completed.

Unit B - Understanding Common Energy Conversion Systems
Real World Energy
The unit is designed for Grade 11, Science 24 students and will cover topics such as energy dynamics, energy in living systems, producing and delivering energy, and the energy we use. This web site includes four interactive online activities, 15 downloadable activities ready for use right in the classroom, including online activities such as the Juiced Up Energy Quiz which teaches about Alberta’s sources of energy.
Energy Literacy Series The SEEDS Energy Literacy Series explores ten energy sources -- their uses, technologies, and associated issues. “Virtual Tours” use pictures and an interactive map of Canada to take you to sites where energy is obtained and produced. Graphics and animations show energy technologies in use. Issues, impacts, and outcomes examine some of the scientific, technological, societal, environmental, economic, and political issues associated with the energies.
Energy Watch: Alternative Energy This is a Telus2Learn Special Edition. It contains links to websites devoted to solar, wind, tidal, biomass, geothermal, nuclear, and hydro energy alternatives.
Electric Energy At Home
Power House This resource allows the student to calculate the cost of household appliances.
Power This resource explains the definition and calculation of electric power using small appliances found in most homes. Using measurement of current and voltage, students are led to discover the equation, P = IV [power (in watts) = current (in amps) x voltage (in volts)]. Students will also learn about power ratings, which is a consideration when shopping for appliances.
Energy Consumption This resource addresses the relationship between energy consumed and time of operation for appliances with a fixed power rating. By measuring energy and time for a number of common appliances, students are led to discover the equation, E = Pt [energy (in joules) = power (in watts) x time (in seconds)]. Operating cost based on a typical cost per kilowatt hour is introduced.
Household Energy Budget This resource addresses electric energy use and cost for typical appliances in a simulated household during a period of one month. Students can choose different models of appliances that have varying energy efficiencies, decide whether the appliance is optional or required, and consider use habits that affect electric energy consumption. In this way, students learn about the decisions that need to be made to live within a fixed budget for electric energy consumption. A glossary is included in the resource.
Efficiency This resource explains that the energy efficiency of a device is calculated by comparing the useful energy output to the energy input. Using the resource, students can apply this information to predict the more efficient of two appliances and then calculate the efficiency of each to refute or support their prediction.
