Other Programs

The Physical Science Series
A collection of over 25 programs I authored in HyperStudio for my Honors Physical Science students.
Eleven years of work went into this effort whick allows students to learn interactively in
cooperative groups on a Macintosh computer instead of just observing a presentation.
It is my intention to remaster these programs so they run on Mac OSX as soon as HyperStudio 5 for Mac OSX is released.
Currently they will only run in Classic OS9 on Macs without the Intel chip.
Please email me if you would like these programs to run in your classroom.

Student Picker (2.3 MB)
This is a program I authored in Revolution (and converted to stand alone) that will pick a student from the class at random.
Pick the closest number to the number of students you have in class and let Student Picker select the student.
I have my chairs numbered so that each student knows their number.
I have student picker select students at random when I ask questions to the class.
It will select the same student more than once since I didn't want students who answered a question to
feel they were "off the hook" and not pay attention to what was going on.
Click on Why's everybody always pickin on me? for a little bit ot nostalgia.
