Agriculture is a complex business. To succeed, a farmer must make numerous decisions based on fact and speculation. In addition, their enterprise is often influenced by forces beyond their control. To make accurate choices, the farmer must use all the resources at their disposal and, at the same time, count on those factors out of their control to follow a recognizable pattern. As you move through this site, you will become aware of the choices a farmer must make and the resources available to ensure those choices will give them the best chance for success.

Welcome to Ask A Scientist! Our service has been in operation since 1991. We have already compiled answers to more than 20,000 questions - and this site now receives more than nine million hits each month!

If you have a question, first check our Archives to see if it has been asked and answered before. Ask A Scientist includes Archives containing questions that our volunteer scientists have answered since our service began. And since 1991, questions have come from every country on the planet!

This course is comprised of five modules (each module has 10 lessons), a final exam, plus a research project. Each module features online activities, offline activities, guided activities, and review exercises. Additionally, students will be asked to challenge themselves with reading and note-taking. Each module has its own evaluation with assigned point values.

Dr. Saul's Biology in Motion features fantastic interactive activities and animations for students to use to learn human biology concepts. The activities and animations seem to be targeted toward a middle school audience there is a lot of value in this website for high school students too. Biology in Motion offers some good tips for teachers planning to use these activities in the classroom. Most of the tips are things that might seem obvious, but are good reminders none-the-less.

The periodic "law" of chemistry recognises that properties of the chemical elements are periodic functions of their atomic number (that is, the number of protons within the element's atomic nucleus). The periodic table is an arrangement of the chemical elements ordered by atomic number in columns (groups) and rows (periods) presented so as to emphasize their periodic properties.

Tables charting the chemical elements have been around since the 19th century - but this modern version has a short video about each one.  We've done all 118 - but our job's not finished. Now we're updating all the videos with new stories, better samples and bigger experiments.

Plus we're making films about other areas of chemistry, latest news and occasional adventures away from the lab.

Most recently we've started a new series  - The Molecular Videos - featuring our favourite molecules and compounds.
