Welcome to the BC Science Chemistry Wiki!

This Wiki community is for registered users of BC Science Chemistry 11. Inside the Wiki you will find answer keys, digital files and other teacher resources posted by other BC Chemistry teachers. Please register to join us. We look forward to having you aboard.

If you came here via internet search and you'd like to network with other BC Science teachers, collaborate on the development of resources, and share ideas, questions, materials, and love, visit the BC Science Interactions community @ www.bcscienceinteractions.com

The most common question we get is why can't I access the Wiki?

When you purchase a class set or more of BC Science Chemistry 11 you receive a complimentary year subscription to the digital support located in the Wiki. Your login is emailed to you after your purchase. It includes a school specific login and password. This means anyone teaching at your school can access the Wiki. If you have misplaced your login info contact us and we'll help you out.

If you never used a Wiki before, then here's the basics in a short tutorial...

How to use the wiki in 3 easy steps...

Why a Wiki?

Many of you have already contributed phenomenal ideas, resources, links, videos, lesson plans, and more in the BC Science Interactions community. The sharing is already happening, and it is already a success. The purpose of this wiki is to store that wealth of information in one central, evolving location, with an organisational structure to facilitate access to information. The wiki format allows us to hone materials as we learn, and to share our own lessons about how to approach the Chemistry courses.

Let's see where the wiki takes us!

What is a Wiki?

I Can't Possibly Learn How to do That!

  1. Read the rules
  2. Click on the 'Table of Contents' link, at the bottom of the page.

  7. Bingo, you did it!

The Editor tool bar is simple and intuitive to use. For a full explanation of how to insert images, files, links, and more, click here. If you still have questions, send a message to Jimmy or Aerin in the BC Science Interactions community.

Rules, Rules, Rules...

Just a few, to make our wiki a better place:
  1. Please look carefully throught the Table of Contents to decide on the best place to put your contribution. This will make it easier for others to find information, and make duplication less likely.
  2. Don't be afraid to ask questions.
  3. When editing a page, always leave a descriptive note in the box provided at the bottom of the page, telling others why you edited the page and what changes were made. If the changes are substantial or controversial, you might want to post something in the discussion forum.
  4. Contributions to http://bcchemistryinteractions.wikispaces.com are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution Non-Commercial 3.0 License.
