Chemistry Slides Files

This page contains links to the PowerPoint presentations that I will be using in class. Though I place them here to my students, they may also be used by any teacher or student who can benefit from this resource. I have found that it is much easier to incorporate small, topical presentations into my course.

For people who want the original PowerPoint file, you can download the PowerPoint Slide Show (.ppsx). Open the file from within PowerPoint, and you will have a fully editable version of the presentation. Modify it, save it, use it however you wish.
