Energy Power Foods
Feeling low on energy? Maybe it's because you haven't eaten in awhile! Did you know that your food is an example of stored energy? It's chemical potential energy to be exact! And some foods have more energy power than others. This brief news clip gives you tips on how to fight fatigue and the midday blahs by providing several examples of energy power foods. (03:12)
List of suitable pieces for classroom use together with a description of the features of each piece, details of the composer, style and level of difficulty, and the name of the publisher and cost.
The Macrogalleria -- A Cyber Wonderland of Polymer Fun
This site is devoted to analysis of polymers and focuses on SEC, although links to other techniques are provided. It does not go into great detail, but provides a nice overview of critical ideas behind SEC. The link to molecular weight distributions may alos help some students with the concepts behind polymers and polymer analysis. It is written simplistically and in an informal manner, which may put some people off, but others might enjoy it for this reason.
Fibonacci Sequence Activity
NASA Connect segment involving students in an activity that explores the Fibonacci Sequence. The segment explores ratios, measurements, and proportionalities.
Animated Storybook: Rob Goes Missing
In this animated storybook, one of the characters becomes lost during a game of hide and seek. The animals work together remaining calm and using problem-solving skills to find him. The words of the story appear on each page and are highlighted as they are read. ( 8:23)
Animated Storybook: Ben's Musical Adventure
In this animated storybook, Ben, the mouse, decides he would like to learn to play a musical instrument. He becomes discouraged when he cannot immediately play the violin well. He wants to stop, but he is convinced to keep trying. This video teaches patience and perseverance. The words of the story appear on each page and are highlighted as they are read. ( 8:23)
In this module we describe the random demodulator and how it can be used in the application of the theory of compressive sensing to the problem of acquiring a high-bandwidth continuous-time signal.
LC Calc (TM) Online. A handy calculator for HPLC computations.
This site contains several on-line calculators for use in liquid chromatography. These include pressure unit conversion, buffer pH, and scale-up factors. Some links may be broken.
Simple Machines and Modern Day Engineering Analogies
Students apply the mechanical advantages and problem-solving capabilities of six types of simple machines (wedge, wheel and axle, lever, inclined plane, screw, pulley) as they discuss modern structures in the spirit of the engineers and builders of the great pyramids. While learning the steps of the engineering design process, students practice teamwork, creativity and problem solving.
Mix It Up
This lesson plan introduces the properties of mixtures and solutions. A class demonstration gives the students the opportunity to compare and contrast the physical characteristics of a few simple mixtures and solutions. Students discuss the separation of mixtures and solutions back into their original components as well as different engineering applications of mixtures and solutions.
7.5.1 Evaluate information from different sources Be critically aware of the reliability and quality of information from different sources, taking into account factors such as commercial, political, academic or personal interests that may influence selection, content and presentation. How will you judge the quality of the information you find? You may need to question the validity of statistical information and the way data have been chosen. The size of a survey sample, for example, may be insufficient to support claims of general tren

ScienceNow: Disaster in Japan
This ScienceNow event, held on March 29, 2011, presented five expert perspectives on the science behind the earthquake, tsunami and nuclear crises that have engulfed Japan. Event Panelists Susan Beck, Professor, Geosciences, University of Arizona Beck provided an overview of the earthquakes and tsunamis that are at the core of Japan's catastrophe. Her research involves using broadband seismology to understand mountain belts, earthquakes and faulting. Current studies include earthquakes and Ear
