DNA for Chemists

Sand! Not necessarily a huge part of any of the qualifications I know of, but I’ve skimmed around it in Geography quite a few times and I just thought this video was cool.  

Enzyme Catalysis

Rates of Reaction and Rate Determining Steps (Introducing the Rate Equation)

An Interlude …

First up, sorry about this hiatus thing we seem to have going on. My parents have replaced our scanner, and I don’t know how to work the new one. That and coursework. And mocks. If you want to remain sane, don’t do 3 A-Levels, 2 GCSE’s and an AS module and EPQ all at one. Tis stressful. 

On another note, I don’t know if anyone has seen, or heard of, memrise before, because I’m probably really late to the party, but I have just found it and it is wonderful. 

www.memrise.com

It was designed, I think, for learning languages, but they have courses for most things. (I’m currently looking at Chemistry and trying to work out which ones match up to my exam board … fun). How it works it it treats the bits of knowledge, be they definitions of words, or translations or whatever, like seeds, and you have to go back on a regular basis to water them and test what you’ve remember.

I’m not yet quite sure why, or how, but you can follow people, and if you want to follow me, I’m Zaphod_III

Normal service will be resumed, but as it’s middle of coursework season, I can’t say when.
