Formatting links[edit]

There are a few ways to create links to external web sites in the wiki.

Descriptive option for use in text[edit]

The best type of link for most situations includes a description of the linked site. This description appears as the title of the link e.g. Useful Web Site. To create a link like this just type a link and the description, separated by a space and enclosed in single square brackets: [ Useful Web Site]. This will create a link to the Useful Web Site that appears like this: Useful Web Site and should be used in conjunction with the full citation in literature cited.

Footnote format[edit]

Enclosing the link in single square brackets without providing a description: [] ...will display the link as a number in brackets, like this: [1]. This format looks like a footnote and it should be used in conjunction with numbered full citations in literature cited.

For your citations section[edit]

Type in the full URL for the link: The wiki treats this text as a link like this: and will display full web address. Use this format in your citations section so that users can work from a printout if needs be; avoid using this format in the main text of your lesson. This material adapted from here Once changes have been made, you should delete the text ''{{Links}}''from your page.

You need to label all figures in order; your handout is also a figure.


Formatting figures[edit]

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.

Food pyramid issue

There is a new food Pyramid in town that shifts the food groups and adds exercise. We need to use the newest version: 776px-Food pyramid.gif. Let's get the color version from the FDA web site. Also, there guys have good images that may be of interest: Nutrition,_Food_Groups_and_Balanced_Diet Dmccabe 01:45, 25 January 2009 (UTC)

This is taking shape rapidly. We can photograph your materials in lab and upload. Keep up the good work! Dmccabe 01:38, 25 January 2009 (UTC)
