Activity : Fusion Reactions
This activity gives students an opportunity to learn about the elements created in the cores of high-mass stars by fusion reactions. They will discover that all stars start by burning hydrogen and end up creating many heavier elements inside their cores, elements that will be released into space when it dies in a supernova explosion. Students associate a layer with an element that is being produced by the high-mass star. This will illustrate that as the temperature of the star increases with dep
Soil Litter: The Food Web
Teachers could incorporate this brief radio program into a variety of learning settings. For example, teachers living in the temperate deciduous forest biome can play the program for students when leaves begin to fall in autumn. The program could also be used whenever students anywhere are learning about food webs or soil. Teachers can choose to use either the audio or text version (or both) to give students listening or reading practice.
This Web site provides math problems with an airplane theme. Also includes information about airplanes. The project is designed to stimulate and motivate students with physical disabilities in grades 4-7 to pursue aeronautics-related careers via the development and delivery of accessible math education materials on the Internet.
The MegaPenny Project
This site illustrates the magnitude of large numbers by showing and describing arrangements of large quantities of U.S. pennies. It begins with16 pennies that measure one inch when stacked and one foot when placed in a row. The next visual shows a thousand pennies, and in progressive steps the site builds to a quintillion pennies. All pages have tables at the bottom listing the value of the pennies on the page, size of the pile, weight, and area (if laid flat).
This article and audio file from National Public Radio highlights the work of Manjul Bhargava, a professor at Princeton University. He is an expert in number theory and a master of the tabla, a small Indian hand drum used to create music with rhythmic, precise patterns. In this article, Bhargava describes the mathematical and improvisational aspects of classical Indian music. The article is part of a Morning Edition series exploring the intersection of art and science. An audio file lets visitor
This unit is concerned with macroevolution – the patterns and processes of evolution above the species level. A crucial consideration in macroevolutionary studies is that of the evolutionary relationships (phylogeny) of the organisms in question. The unit begins with an introduction to the scope of macroevolutionary studies and illustrates methods of reconstructing phylogeny, from both morphological and molecular data.
This activity focuses on getting students to think about disabilities and how they can make some aspects of life more difficult. The students are asked to pick a disability and design a new kind of sport for it.
This Unit will introduce you to a number of ways of representing data graphically and of summarising data numerically. You will learn the uses for pie charts, bar charts, histograms and scatterplots. You will also be introduced to various ways of summarising data and methods for assessing location and dispersion.
Nice introduction to high performance liquid chromatography that includes information on the modes of separation, a comparison of normal vs. reversed phase separations, identification of analytical, semi-prep, and preparative scale LC and a very nice large glossary that includes definitions of terms related to chromatography.

By Land, Sea or Air
In this lesson, students learn that navigational techniques change when people travel to different places — land, sea, air and in space. For example, an explorer traveling by land uses different methods of navigation than a sailor or an astronaut.
Learn to Build a Rocket in 5 Days or Your Money Back
In this lesson, students discover the entire process that goes into designing a rocket for any customer. In prior lessons, students learned how rockets work, but now they learn what real-world decisions engineers have to make when designing and building a rocket. They learn about important factors such as supplies, ethics, deadlines and budgets. Also, students learn about the Engineering process, and recognize that the first design is almost never the final design. Re-Engineering is a critical s
A Few Minutes with Nolan Bushnell - Creator of Pong and Atari I had the fortunate experience of sitting down and having an hour-long conversation with Nolan Bushnell, inventor of PONG and ATARI, for an upcoming project I am working on. That video won't be released for a few months, but he did offer to chat with me for an extra five minutes for Tech with Tina.
