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.

The chemistry resources presented here have several key features.
a) All activities and topics are linked to curriculum objectives
b) Lab and demonstrations are presented that can be done to help students understand concepts more fully
c) Key ideas are highlighted to clarify material
d) Important procedures are outlined (it is not the intention of the writers to indicate that these procedures are the only methods that can be used)
e) Worked-out examples are provided for many of the formula calculations and procedural questions that need to be done.
f) Flash movies are embedded to help further student understanding. Each movie feature buttons so that students can see them repeatedly.
g) Video Demonstrations have been performed to broaden the experience of students, and help with the inquiry nature of chemistry
h) Review tests have been included, with links to topics and answers included. These are found in the Teacher's section
i) A list of objectives is given on each front page, with links to the topics that cover each objective.
j) A list of competencies has been created that can help students and teachers evaluate student performance. This is found in the Teacher's section.
k) A list of curriculum activities suggested by Sask Learning are provided on each module's front page in the Teacher's section.
L) In the independent study unit students can choose from a number of topics and also decide upon the type of product they wish to produce based on the multiple intelligence.
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.
