Hundred Board Activities 2
Students use "magic" to navigate around the hundred board.

These activities support students as they develop understanding of powerful number patterns in the hundred board: (1) moving across or back one space means adding or subtracting one from the starting number; (2) moving up or down one row means add
Math Tours: Fractions
Students need many concrete experiences with fractions to develop a deep understanding of the three models of fractions: area, linear and set models. Teachers need to address all three models in well-designed instructional activities so that students develop a rich concept of fractions that they can use to make sense of numbers, operations, measurement and probability. The Math Tours include: activities, problem solving, games, writing to learn, templates, math-literature connections, and web li

Towards a targeted surfactant stabilized ultrasound contrast agent
Gas-filled microbubbles are highly effective when used as ultrasound contrast agents due to the large difference in acoustic impedance between the gas in the bubble and the surrounding blood. The surfactant-based contrast agent ST68 (Span 60, Tween 80) developed in our laboratory (US Patent # 5, 352, 436) and filled with sulfur hexafluoride (SF6), was modified in an attempt to make the agent target specific. Modifications to the agent were done by incorporation an anchor molecule, phosphatidylet

NASA KSNN What changes a shadow's size?
Light is a form of energy. It interacts with matter, or the material that makes up an object, in different ways based upon the qualities of that material. Light passes through objects that are transparent. These items appear to be clear. Materials that are translucent let some light pass through, but this light is scattered. These items look milky or fuzzy. Some materials are reflective, or bounce light back. Reflective items are shiny. And objects that are opaque block the light.

Creating the Past: Understanding Artifacts
After studying the historic events of Catlin's life, this project allows students to imagine the material culture of the time. They will become archaeologists and anthropologists, looking back on previous cultures for clues as to the motives and inspirations for the choices that shaped their lives. Each student will bring in a fabricated artifact from Catlin's life, resulting in a museum exhibit in the class.
