The Electromagnetic Spectrum
The electromagnetic spectrum allows physicists to classify different types of electromagnetic waves on the basis of their wavelengths and frequencies. What determines the wavelength and frequency of a given wave and distinguishes one wave on the spectrum from another is the amount of energy each wave carries -- specifically, the level of energy in the photons of each. This video segment adapted from FRONTLINE explores the different types of radiation represented by electromagnetic waves and how
Symbiosis Rap Song
Check out this rap song about symbiosis (when different types of organisms interact for long periods of time). The song will discuss the symbiotic relationship between pine trees, pine bark beetles, and bluestain fungi. The repeated verse is catchy and can quickly teach children about mutualism and parasitism. (2:33)
Exploring Wisconsin Our Home-We All Work
We All Work - Wisconsin's landscape has always affected the types of work available to its citizens. Conversely, the work people engage in affects the landscape and the people who live there. As technology advances and people can exchange ideas more rapidly, geographical boundaries become less significant, creating more changes in the workplace. This program explores the dynamic relationship among geographical resources, technology, and work, showing students the many choices they can make
How To Make Compare and Contrast Map, Hierachy Map, and Concept Map
Having students create their own graphic organizers with key
words or phrases, images, connections, color, and layout can be a great way for them to develop visual literacy and thinking skills, construct and represent knowledge, and show the connection between their ideas and understandings. In this video three different kinds of graphic organizers are created using Glogsteredu, Prezi, and Powerpoint to make three different types of graphic organizers:
- Compare and Contrast Map
Frequency - Sixty Symbols
You've heard of kilohertz and megahertz, but when things get down to the size of atoms, wave frequency gets to some seriously high values. Video discusses the various types of waves and why there is a difference is what you hear and see. Video is of good quality and is appropriate for high school students. Run time 07:02.
Efficient Computer-User Interface in Electronic Mail Systems
This research explores the question of improving user- computer interface. The approach is one of observing and codifying various parameters that influence the efficiency of interface in the context of electronic mail tasks. In the paper the authors observe 'expert' and 'regular' users of a mail system and analyze the sources of efficiency. It is clear that experts use a different, more specialized, set of commands in performing standard mail tasks. While experts perform these tasks with fewer e
