About Science Notes 6

Hi there! Welcome to Science Notes. We write About.com’s Chemistry website, but have an interest in all aspects of science, not just chemistry, so we started this site as a way to expand on interests.

As you can tell, we follow astronomy quite closely and enjoy growing crystals in spare time. If you have particular areas of science you’d like to see covered, be sure to let us know.

    I am the Head teacher of Science at an Australian High School and am interested in using your circle periodic table https://sciencenotes.org/downloadable-periodic-table-circle-tiles/
    and I understand it is copyrighted.
    It would be used in the school as a giant mural in a hallway to be made interactive with the Aurasma app. but for this to happen I need to be able to either access a very high resolution copy or get permission to rework/recreate it using adobe illustrator.
    Would this be OK is a high resolution copy was made available and used with your permission, or would I be able to adapt your idea to suit our needs (eg recreate a very similar copy)

    Thank you in advance

    Hello. I would like to use your Colorful Periodic Table in one of my videos. I understand that it is copyrighted and would like to ask permission before using it. I think I will find another table if you do not reply. I could not find information regarding asking questions, so I hope you will find this here in time. Thank you.

      Yes, you can use it in your video. We request the table not be reproduced online (able to be downloaded somewhere else) to protect ownership in search engines. It doesn’t sound like that is an issue for this project 🙂 Good luck with the video!

    I am presenting as the Conference for the Advancement of Science Teaching in Houston TX this month. It is the state science teachers conference in Texas. I am teaching teachers how to teach students to make accurate precise scientific measurement. I was wondering if I could use the article on your website titled “What Is the Difference Between Accuracy and Precision?” as part of this presentation. I would specifically like to reproduce it in a printed form for the participants. I would give you full attribution and include a link to your website.
