Lot's of pictures!

Hi again; this is much improved; in addition to the suggestions earlier, please number the figures 1, 2..... etc. Include the handout as a numbered figure (but not part of a gallery.


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:315Small Snow.jpg|Figure 1. Snow accumulation at 3:15 during a snowstorm on Feb 14 2007 in South Burlington Vermont USA; click to view closer
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.

Hello Professor,
I have tried to create a gallery for the second time already and I can't seem to get it to work, even with the instructions. Is it possible for you to help me next lab class, or will that be to late? Thanks- Emily

Hi Emily,

just copy and paste the gallery syntax into your edited page and save. You'll get a gallery of pictures. Then replace each picture name with your own and replace the captions.

Example figure

Looks like you found out why not to use a common file name for a figure:)

First Figure

Wrong pH strips unfortunately. You can photograph the right ones in the AM.

Wow; you guys are fast!

Changes needed

Affect/effect issues[edit]

I fixed these (see history). In general, use affect as a verb, effect as a noun.


provide a hotlink from the materials list to the handout

PH Vs pH[edit]

This matters. You are discussing concentration of H+ ions, and H symbolizes this. It is customary to use pH rather than PH. Please fix throughout.




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.

Reflections and citations[edit]

These sections should be completed


Formatting citations[edit]

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}}

Handout format[edit]


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.

You need pictures[edit]

None of the images you link to actually exist on the wiki. You need to upload them.



This lesson plan desperately needs photographs illustrating the concepts. The lesson works very well, but photographs would illustrate to other teachers just how well it works. Once changes have been made, you should delete the text ''{{Pictures}}''from your page.

Health links[edit]

You need to be explicit here about the health implications. What specific implications are you looking for?

Reason for move

Hi folks,

I had to move the title because pH requires a small p. But the wiki won't let you start a title with lower case letters.
