Presentation Resource: Psychology of Color

I received this link from one of my colleagues.

It’s a good resource for those that use color in your courses/presentations or have students using color as part of their projects.

And if you really want a good book on color, you can check out the following book from the library.

Teaching Tool for Science/Math Teachers

For those of you teaching Math and Science, here is an “interesting” activity provided by Texas Instruments that looks at the math and science of a zombie outbreak.

This could be a fun activity that teaches students to critically think and problem solve.

And better to do it now before the zombies come for their brains.
