Navigating by the Numbers
In this lesson, students will learn that math is important in navigation and engineering. Ancient land and sea navigators started with the most basic of navigation equations (Speed x Time = Distance). Today, navigational satellites use equations that take into account the relative effects of space and time. However, even these high-tech wonders cannot be built without pure and simple math concepts basic geometry and trigonometry that have been used for thousands of years. In this lesson, these b
Lesson 80 – Coffee Break Spanish
It’s the end of an era: the final episode of Coffee Break Spanish. In lesson 80 it’s time for las despedidas, the goodbyes. Andrew will be returning to England and bidding farewell to María-José, and Mark and Kara will also be saying adiós to the listeners of Coffee Break Spanish. In the coming weeks we’ll [...]

The Senses: Touching - by StudyJams
Nerve cells throughout your body respond to external stimuli by sending nerve impulses to your brain. Your skin's nerve cells respond to the things you touch, allowing you to feel them. Learn more about your sense of touch with this slide show from StudyJams. Vibrant images are set to music and information is written under each photo. A short, self-checking quiz is also included with this link.

What Floats Your Boat?
Students use modeling clay, a material that is denser than water and thus ordinarily sinks in water, to discover the principle of buoyancy. They begin by designing and building boats out of clay that will float in water, and then refine their designs so that their boats will carry as great a load (metal washers) as possible. Building a clay boat to hold as much weight as possible is an engineering design problem. Next, they compare amount of water displaced by a lump of clay that sinks to the am
Yeast Cells Respire, Too (But Not Like Me and You)
Students set up a simple way to indirectly observe and quantify the amount of respiration occurring in yeast-molasses cultures. Each student adds a small amount of baking yeast to a test tube filled with diluted molasses. A second, smaller test tube is then placed upside-down inside the solution. As the yeast cells respire, the carbon dioxide they produce is trapped inside the inverted test tube, producing a growing bubble of gas that is easily observed and measured. Students are presented with

The Earth's Moon - by StudyJams
The Earth's moon reflects the sun, and so it is visible at night. It also rotates at the same rate that it orbits, 29.5 days, which means that we only see one side of it. The moon has one-sixth the gravity of the Earth and no atmosphere at all. Learn more about our moon with this slide show from StudyJams. Vibrant pictures are set to music while information is written under each photo. A short, self-checking quiz is also included with this link.
