Life on the Moon
Sudents learn about the physical properties of the Moon. They compare these to the properties of the Earth to determine how life would be different for people living on the Moon. Using their understanding of these differences, they think about what types of products engineers would need to design for humans to live comfortably on the Moon.
Students learn why and how motion occurs and what governs changes in motion, as described by Newton's three laws of motion. They gain hands-on experience with the concepts of forces, changes in motion, and action and reaction. In an associated literacy activity, students design a behavioral survey and learn basic protocol for primary research, survey design and report writing.
Students will design and build a device to protect and accurately deliver a dropped egg. The device and its contents represent a care package that must be safely delivered to people in a disaster area with no road access. In a similar fashion to a team of design engineers, students will design their devices using a number of design constraints including limited supplies. The activity emphasizes the change from potential energy to kinetic energy of the device and its contents and the energy trans
Solar Paths: An International and Integrated Look at the Sun and Seasons
Some of the most difficult concepts for students to understand in Earth science are the ideas and explanations related to the Sun and seasons. The daily rotation of the Earth causes day and night, and the differences of how it is observed at different locations on Earth is a concept that is a challenge for many middle-school-age students to grasp. This article describes how to present these ideas to students using an international perspective and integrated approach that includes myth, archaeolo
History to Enrich Mathematics Learning
This resource guide highlights online resources that talk about the history of mathematics in a way that can help students see real-world connections in mathematics.
Temperature and precipitation as limiting factors in ecosystems
This classroom activity is aimed at an understanding of different ecosystems by understanding the influence of temperature and precipitation. Students correlate graphs of vegetation vigor with those of temperature and precipitation data for four diverse ecosystems, ranging form near-equatorial to polar, and spanning both hemispheres to determine which climatic factor is limiting growth.
Pi Day : Making a Pi Necklace
Diana Funke teaches mathematics at Davisville Middle School in North Kingstown, RI. Her students make a Pi necklace for Pi Day to reinforce the idea that some numbers never repeat or end. They assign a color to each digit (including 0) and then string beads of those colors into a necklace, using the digits of Pi as their guide.
Multicultural Math Fair
This website provides a collection of activities compiled by the Mathematics Department at Frisbie Middle School in Rialto, Calif. for use at its Multicultural Math Fair. Although the activities are from the 1999-2000 Multicultural Math Fair, the Math Forum maintains the website and all the links were current at the time of this report. The website includes some tips on how to set up a Multicultural Math Fair as well as data sheets and software for some of the activities, such as the Tower of Ha

Sunday Service - 3/4/2012 - Christy Lohr Sapp
A service of worship in Duke University Chapel. Dr Christy Lohr Sapp delivers a sermon entitled "Great Expectations." Opening excerpt from the sermon: (36:48) "A few years ago, a number of my FaceBook friends listed their religious affiliations as "follower of Jesus". I thought this was odd. Perhaps I am too entrenched in a denominational identity, but I'm not really sure what "follower of Jesus" means as a religious descriptor. Does it suggest that you are a Christian but don't like the la
