Video needed



This lesson plan desperately needs a video clip illustrating the concept. The lesson works very well, but video would demonstrate just how well it works in a way that can't be captured by still photography. Once changes have been made, you should delete the text ''{{Clip}}''from your page.

I know you guys made video; let's use it!

Changes needed

Hi folks,

some changes are needed before final grading.


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.


Using Galleries[edit]

I notice that you have several images on your page. It may be useful to organize them in a gallery. The format is quite simple:

The following captioned gallery was added to this page using this syntax:

<gallery caption="Data set 1;Valentine's Day snow storm 2007, South Burlington Vermont">

Image:345 smallSnow.jpg|Figure 2. Snow accumulation at 3:45; click to view closer.
Image:415 smallSnow.jpg|Figure 3. Snow accumulation at 4:15; click to view closer.

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


Be explicit about the need for stemware (unless this can be done in regular glasses)

Material covered[edit]

List senses in this section


The link in fig 3 is useful but no longer applies to the figure The spelling in the figure legend needs work. Use distance between peaks rather than width.



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.

Math connections[edit]

What will the students do with the measurements? Add a graphing component, otherwise the measurements are fairly pointless.


Worth mentioning the breakage and risk of injury.

Formatting citations[edit]

80px-Wikineighbour V2.png

To insure that a reader can reliably track down the specific book or article you intended, it is useful to provide the following information:

  • Author(s) (last name followed by first initials; secondary authors: initials followed by last name); year; Book title or article title; publisher (for books) or Periodical title (for articles); volume and page numbers (both for articles)

Formatted examples:

  • Brown, M.W. and C. Hurd. 1947. Goodnight Moon. Harper.
  • Bentley, W.A. 1905. Studies of raindrops and raindrop phenomena. Monthly weather review. 32. 450

Once changes have been made, delete the following text: {{citations}}

Copyright violations

Hi folks,

I deleted two of your uploaded files. Both were copyrighted images. Try this: [1] and this: [2]

Both can be downloaded, uploaded here with appropriate links directly in the image upload page (in that way they can be used in other wikieducator pages without losing the license information)
