Essential Science for Teachers: Earth and Space Science
In-depth interviews with children that uncover their ideas about the topic at hand.,In this segment the interviewer is trying to find out if the student has prior knowledge about types of rocks by asking her about the stripes on the rock. The student uses the word "metamorphic" and goes on to explain what a metamorphic rock is. The interviewer probes further by asking her why rocks get pressed together and where the stripes may have come from. He then shows her a picture to see if she can connec

Essential Science for Teachers: Physical Science: Session 2. The Particle Nature of Matter: Solids,
In-depth interviews with children that uncover their ideas about the topic at hand.,In this segment the student is describing how all atoms are the same. He begins by drawing his own mental model of an atom and explaining that all atoms are made up of protons, neutrons, and electrons. He says the air atom is the same as the aluminum foil atom. He goes on to describe other things that are made up of the same particles. The interviewer probes further to find out if atoms of different substances ar

Introduction to Stoichiometry
Our on-line Chemistry course covers stoichiometry and demonstrates our scenario based approach to teaching chemistry. Traditional courses tend to follow a bottom-up approach to learning chemistry. This traditional approach teaches abstract concepts and tools before discussing their practical application, which results in students learning bits of unconnected knowledge that are rarely usable let alone memorable. In our approach, scenarios are used both to motivate the material and provide a frame

Risk Management for Enterprises and Individuals
This book is intended for the Risk Management and Insurance course where Risk Management is emphasized. When we think of large risks, we often think in terms of natural hazards such as hurricanes, earthquakes or tornadoes Perhaps man-made disasters come to mind such as the terrorist attacks in the U.S. on September 11, 2001. Typically we have overlooked financial crises, such as the credit crisis of 2008. However, these types of man-made disasters have the potential to devastate the global mark

Strong as the Weakest Link
To introduce the two types of stress that materials undergo — compression and tension — students examine compressive and tensile forces and learn about bridges and skyscrapers. They construct their own building structure using marshmallows and spaghetti to see which structure can hold the most weight. In an associated literacy activity, students explore the psychological concepts of stress and stress management, and complete a writing activity.

Middle School Portal: Math and Science Pathways (MSP2)
This online activity offers students a chance to analyze data stated as percentages to draw conclusions about the similarity of five archeological sites. Students analyze the data by making a table of the differences for each pair of sites by subtracting the smaller percentage from the larger for each of five types of evidence. The activity is one of 80 mathematical challenges featured on the Figure This! web site, where real-world uses of mathematics are emphasized. The activity features a solu

World of Crickets
These four activities, use crickets to teach the scientific process to elementary and middle school students. Students will make observations and record data on the types of food that crickets like to eat. In another lab, students determine if crickets respond to light or dark. A “Crickthermometer” activity asks students to design an experiment to find out whether they can predict air temperature by counting the number of times a cricket chirps.

AMA Apologizes To Blacks For Past Racial Inequality
Transplant surgeon Clive Callender has hurtful memories of being the only black doctor at medical meetings in the 1970s, met with stark silence when he pleaded for better access to transplant organs for blacks. So when the American Medical Association formally apologized Thursday for more than a century of policies that excluded blacks from a group long considered the voice of American doctors, it was belated, but still welcome.
