3 Chrome Apps that will Improve your Grades in School
Since school just started officially in Florida, though it doesn’t really affect me, I was looking into some good apps on my Google Chrome browser for the classes I am taking. Nowadays good apps aren’t that hard to find. Here are three helpful free apps on the Chrome Web Store for anyone who is in school or just wants something for reference.
ChemRefrence: Periodic Table
This is my only periodic table, and the only one I need. It used to be called Element, until it was updated, but still has the same great content. There are animated atom diagrams, electron placement charts, in depth stats for every atom and all that good chemistry stuff. The only down side to this app is that there are ads, but they aren’t obnoxiously large or distracting. I guess you could say this is completely useless for the average person that doesn’t need to know about chemistry, but it’s extremely helpful for me.
I use the GeoGebra for when graphing in algebra my course actually recommends downloading this application. You can create graphs, angles and shapes using points on a graph, so it’s mainly just for the purpose of assisting you your math needs. The GeoGebra app can be annoying when using the zoom in and zoom out button, because you have to switch between the two buttons by going down a drop down menu with another 5 options every time you want to change the mode. Like a lot of other sites, you can use your Google account to sign in. No need to remember another password. It’s also convenient that you can save your graphs or whatever you made as a Google doc. I’m still learning the nuts and bolts of the application, but so far it’s been decent.
Numerics Calculator & Converter
This might not completely replace my normal graphing calculator, but it does the job well when I don’t feel like getting my bulky Texas Instruments TI-83 Plus. With the capabilities of a normal scientific calculator the Numerics Calculator & Converter is worthy of being used on a daily basis. The downside to this app and every calculator on computers is that it’s frustrating to use the onscreen keyboard and even the normal keyboard, without a numeric keypad. It also has tons of categories with different measurements to convert between, like force, currency, length volume and time. Another plus about this app, though I have never tried it out is that it apparently works offline and doesn’t require wifi. This app has many more features than I would probably ever need.
