Tower Investigation and the Egg
Towers have been a part of developed society for centuries. Towers serve a variety of purposes, from lookouts to cellular towers. In this activity student groups will build three types of towers, engineering them to hold an egg one foot high for 15 seconds.
Weather and Atmosphere
In this unit, students learn the basics about weather and the atmosphere. They investigate materials engineering as it applies to weather and the choices available to us for clothing to counteract the effects of weather. Students have the opportunity to design and analyze combinations of materials for use in specific weather conditions. In the next lesson, students also are introduced to air masses and weather forecasting instrumentation and how engineers work to improve these instruments for at
Forces on the Human Molecule
Students will conduct several simple lab activities to learn about the five fundamental load types that can act on structures: tension, compression, shear, bending, and torsion. In this activity, students will play the role of molecules in a beam subject to various loading schemes.
When I started teaching this subject I found three kinds of texts. There were applications books that avoid proofs and cover the linear algebra only as needed for their applications. There were advanced books that assume that students can understand their elegant proofs and know how to answer the homework questions having seen only one or two examples. And, there were books that spend a good part of the semester multiplying matrices and computing determinants and then suddenly change level to wo

Language Arts: words for animal groups
Perhaps you knew that sheep come in flocks and cows come in herds? But what about 56 other animal types? This is an exhaustive test of familiar and exotic words for groups of animals. Suitable for secondary school students as well as the general learner and even the wisest of philologists.
Learn about velocity and acceleration vectors. Move the ball with the mouse or let the simulation move the ball in four types of motion (two types of linear, simple harmonic, circle). See the velocity and acceleration vectors change as the ball moves.
States of Matter
Watch different types of molecules form a solid, liquid, or gas. Add or remove heat and watch the phase change. Change the temperature or volume of a container and see a pressure-temperature diagram respond in real time. Relate the interaction potential to the forces between molecules.
The Musculoskeletal System
LearnHealth presents the first installment of the Human Body series, "The Musculoskeletal System." This video talks about bones, muscles, types of muscles and joints, ligaments, and tendons. Everything is well labeled-video can be paused to take notes.(3:33)
Students will review different types of equations by playing Math-O.
Global Climates and Seasons. A Look at Temperature and Precipitation
Several factors affect a region's climate and the number and types of seasons it experiences. Here students explore colorful animations of annual changes in temperature and precipitation.
Home is Where the Heart is
As Second Graders, it is important for you to examine the different aspects of communities. In this WebQuest, you will learn the three types of communities: rural, suburb, and urban, and compare them with each other.
These games will help you practice different types of measurement.
Types of Fish
In this project you will learn about different types of fish.
