Looking good

Minor changes[edit | edit source]

Comment.gif

Spelling[edit | edit source]

Your page contains spelling errors. To improve it, please spell check. If you use Firefox, it contains a spell checker. Alternatively, edit the entire page, copy and paste the content into a word processing document, fix the spelling (being careful not to change any formats in the document, and then paste it back into the wiki. Don't forget to save your changes! Once changes have been made, you should delete the text ''{{Spell}}''from your page.

Brand names[edit | edit source]

Please keep in mind that this is an international resource. So, by all means list the product brands that you used along with the registered trademark symbol (which you may cut and paste from here), but also include a generic description of the product. Product names should be capitalized. Examples:

  • Dixie® cups (4 oz waxed paper cups)
  • Karo® syrup (clear corn syrup)

Non brand-name local terms like soda, pop, or minerals can be replaced with a more global terms like carbonated beverage or soft drink and the use of the registered trade mark symbol (®) is not needed. Once changes have been made, you should delete the text ''{{Brands}}''from your page.

; this applies to Soda and Styrofoam in particular. Comment.gif

Formatting figures[edit | edit source]

Any photograph, map, diagram, or handout that is embedded in your wiki counts as a figure. Tables should be handled differently.

Adding numbered captions to your figures can simplify your writing. You can refer a reader to a picture as simply as this: (Fig 1). No need to say see below or to the right of this text, particularly when the figure may move depending on the window size in which the page is viewed. So, I suggest captions like this: Figure 1. Enough detail following the figure number to orient the reader to the image. Figure captions do not work well in the Rich Text editor, so it may be worth turning that off to edit captions. The following image and caption was added to this page using this syntax:[[Image:RainbowHypothesis.jpg|Figure 1: Students generating hypotheses|thumb]]

Figure 1: Students generating hypotheses

Once changes have been made, you should delete the text ''{{Figures}}''from your page.

Lesson plan[edit | edit source]

It's important to clarify that energy comes not from carbon, but from carbon-rich compounds. The energy is stored in the bonds that were formed during photo(or chemo)synthesis and is released when we digest glucose (in particular).

Recomendation[edit | edit source]

I think you need a dish under all of this. Someone will over-water it and make a mess.

Nice work!!!
