Jessica Salter  (TpT Seller) re: Electromagnetic Spectrum Powerpoint - Wavelength, Frequency & Energy
I love this presentation, thank you so much for posting it! I just wanted to let you know, I think slides 12 and 13 are in the wrong order, and the first bullet point on the "Microwaves" slide (12) has the descriptions backwards. I love the links in the slides and plan to add those links to my website so my students can use them to study!

Hi Jessica, thank you so much for pointing out the errors in the file! I really appreciate it :) I have uploaded a corrected file - TpT should have sent you a notice a few minutes ago.

My email address is hendrixk@duvalschools.org. This is Kelly Hendrix, can you send me your email and I will upload my state standards for the jeopardy game. I hope it is not too late. I just checked my mail today.

The Science Vault  (TpT Seller)
Absolutely! Sending you the email now

hendrixk re: Plate Tectonics, Plate Boundaries Vocabulary & Flash Demos Powerpoint
I teach in 8th grade Science in Jacksonville, FL. We have to give the FCAT 2.0 test to the students in April. I am looking for a great Jeopardy game that covers the standards for the Space Science part of the curriculum. Do you know of any? I have to get my kids ready by reteaching 6th and 7th grade concepts. Wow, I am really worried.
December 23, 2012
The Science Vault  (TpT Seller)
Right off hand, I don't...but if you would like to send me your state standards, I would be happy to make one for you. We could trade - you be my beta tester and get the jeopardy game free in exchange for the standards.

I could make it over winter break and have it for you before the new semester

I did not receive a copy of the "cards" that were mentioned in the packet I purchased.

I think that I am missing the "cards" that came with this packet of information.

Hi Kristen, not sure what happened with the download, but I would be happy to send you the cards directly via email. Where is the best place to send them? It's a really fun game - one that my students always enjoy playing :)

harkerj re: Newton's 2nd Law of Motion, F=ma, Logic Puzzle
Not sure how to continue this conversation in the comments section, so I'll do it here.

Clue #1 On the paper I have states: "Karla's cart has 50% more mass than Daneisha's."

Therefore, it does not work out the way your provided answer key states.
November 8, 2012
The Science Vault  (TpT Seller)
Oh my gosh! I was looking at clue #1 on the answer key and it says the exact opposite! Will fix and replace in the next 30 minutes! Thank you so much for bringing this to my attention.

Hello,
Would you recommend this lesson for a home-schooled 7th grade student?

Please let me know when you can, I have been working on this during planning and still not really making progress :(

The Science Vault  (TpT Seller)
In my files, there was a second page and a key. I tried downloaded the file from here (in case I had uploaded the wrong file), and it also contained a second page with answers.

I'm sorry you didn't get the key: weird - must have been a truncated file?

At any rate, here are the answers:

mass (kg) acceleration (m/s2) Force (N)
Karla 6 2 12
Matthew 4.5 4 18
Daneisha 12 2.5 30
Vince 9 3 27
Sergio 10 5 50

shardesty01 re: Newton's 2nd Law of Motion, F=ma, Logic Puzzle
I am working this with my 8th grade Science class and am honestly having trouble with it. Do you by any chance have an answer key in electronic form?
Thank you!
August 16, 2012
The Science Vault  (TpT Seller)
:) Not sure, but give me a a couple of hours and I'll see if I can find/make one.Logic puzzles should always come with a key :)

Low Bio  (TpT Seller) re: Scientific Method, Experimental Design Unit, Variables, Hypothesis
Hello "The Science Vault"
I would love your scientific method unit material, however it is offering shipment. Isn't there a way I could download it digitally?

Also, you have no ratings. Could I get a discount for this product in return for a rating?

Thank you!

Hi Kristine,

http://www.teacherspayteachers.com/Product/Unit-Scientific-Method-Experimental-Design-Variables-Hypothesis

Honestly, I would feel weird "buying" a rating on my products. This unit is full of good stuff, easily a couple of weeks worth. If you like it and find it useful, I'd appreciate your feedback. If you don't like it and find it not useful, I'd *really* appreciate your feedback - I always want my products to be helpful. :)

cieciwaj re: Scientific Method, Experiment Design, Jeopardy - Like Powerpoint Game
I downloaded this, but it does not work. No matter what category and value you select, it takes you to the same question. Is there a way to fix this?
September 26, 2011
The Science Vault  (TpT Seller)
I've had this happen one other time - Let me troubleshoot and get back to you. I'll respond here when I have a solution. For what it's worth, I've sold many of these - I think it must get corrupted occasionally on download.

Update: I just downloaded the file and it seems to be working okay for me. Please be sure you start the slideshow from the first slide. I will also re-upload the file so that you can download it again, if starting the slideshow from the beginning doesn't fix the problem. If you still have trouble, I would be happy to email you the file - just send your email to me at "tbirdscience@gmail.com"

Sarah Lefferdink re: Plate Tectonics, Plate Boundaries Vocabulary & Flash Demos Powerpoint
Why don't the animations and illustrations work on the powerpoint?
September 8, 2011
The Science Vault  (TpT Seller)
I'm not sure why they aren't working - can you describe what happens when you try to launch one of the animations? In the meantime, I'll download the file to see if I can replicate the problem you are having.

Update (9/8): it appears that the server that hosts the flash animations (education.sdsc.edu) is busy or not accepting connections right now. The result is that the powerpoint appears to freeze when any of the links are clicked. I will check again tomorrow morning to see if the problem has been rectified. If it has not, I will pull this file while I try to find suitable replacement flash files.

Update (9/9 - AM): It appears that the server that hosts the animations is back up and running. Thanks again for letting me know - I hope you enjoy using the powerpoint!

~Jan

Thanks for letting me know about the problem!

kybails re: Scientific Method, Experiment Design, Jeopardy - Like Powerpoint Game
I downloaded this Review Jeopardy to use in class, but only 9 question/answer slides are provided. There should be 25 question/answer slides. So, when I click on some of the dollar amounts, no question shows for the students to answer. Are you going to complete this powerpoint? If so, I would like to be provided a completed version.
February 16, 2011
The Science Vault  (TpT Seller)
I was not aware that there are only nine slides uploaded. Let me look into it real quick. I can send you the entire file if your download was somehow truncated. I will get back to you in a couple of hours at the most.

Update: I uploaded the full version and sent you a notification so that you can download the file again. If you have any trouble, please send me an email at tbirdscience@gmail.com so that I can send you the file via email. Teachers Pay Teachers doesn't allow me to contact you directly (so that you don't get spammed :) ) so, if you still have trouble after downloading, the quickest solution is to have me send it to you directly. I am so sorry for the trouble. Thank you for contacting me to let me know about the problem! If you'd like, I can send you any other jeopardy game (or powerpoint) for free for your trouble - just look over my stuff and let me know what you would like :)

Are your smartboard lessons compatible with promethean boards?
Thanks,

The Science Vault  (TpT Seller)
Yes, they are actually created with the Promethean software ActiveInspire. Thanks for asking! :)

Dear Jan,

My name is Jack Dennison. I am the Editor-in-Chief of www.FunnelBrain.com, an educational website. I am writing to you because the quality of the work you have posted to PTP distinguishes you as a talented author. I am looking for teacher-authors to create custom study review materials for FunnelBrain (on a paid basis, of course).

These study materials would take the form of online flashcards, quizzes, and study guides for high school and college level courses, as well as for certain standardized exams such as the GMAT, the SAT or the GRE. We are also interested in lesson plans built around activities that can take place on www.FunnelBrain.com.

If you are interested in a paid writing assignment, please email me at jack@funnelbrain.com, and I will respond with details on the available assignments. In the meantime, please feel free to browse FunnelBrain.com.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards,
Jack Dennison

para54 re: Balancing Equations, Word Equations, and Types of Reactions
Do you have an answer key to your free Balancing Equations, Word Equations, and Types of Reactions worksheet? It doesn't have to be free! Thanks. Susan

The Science Vault  (TpT Seller)
Hi Susan,

I do have an answer key - I won't be able to get to it until Monday because it is on my school computer. I will post the answer key with the free worksheet. I've been meaning to put answer keys with everything anyway, so thank for the reminder!

TEACHING EXPERIENCE

I have 27 years of teaching experience and although I have taught several different subjects, the bulk of my experience is teaching physical science to 8th graders and physics to 9th graders.

MY TEACHING STYLE

I prefer hands-on activities; inquiry based whenever possible. I am a "true believer" in the integration of technology into all classroom activities; I use online simulations when in-class labs are not possible. I also believe that humans learn more when they are relaxed and are able to laugh every once in awhile. My classes tend to be noisy, but busy. :)

HONORS/AWARDS/SHINING TEACHER MOMENT

Most of my "honors and awards" have been in the athletic coaching arena, so they aren't applicable here.

MY OWN EDUCATIONAL HISTORY

B.S. - Stephen F Austin State University 1985 M.S. - University of Texas at Austin - Exercise Physiology 1992 M. Ed. - Educational Technology, University of Missouri 2009 Ed.S. in Educational Technology with an emphasis on Technology in Schools 2011
