Online graphing tool! Great for lab reports! Check out the website for more cool stuff.

Online equation editor ! Another great tool for reports and a gentle introduction to LaTeX.

My online bookmarks page

Science links to just about every conceivable topic, especially Physical Science and Physics, at ck12.org

Excellent library of Physics applets - many HTML5 compliant!

Reddit discussions on Space, Science, AskScience and AskScienceDiscussion
Way cool use of a camera obscura to make images!


XC Reading list: Read a book, write a brief essay on why it's in my library: what connection does it have to one our topics? Possible XC scaffolding to English class!
