Math Shorts Episode 2 - Rotation
This Math Shorts episode explains the term rotation, and provides several examples that demonstrate the concept. This video was made for the PBS Learning Media library, thanks to a generous grant from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting. It was produced in collaboration with Utah Education Network. Common Core State Standards: CCSS.Math Cont.8.G.A.3 ( Grade 8 ): Describe the effect of dilations, translations, rotations, and reflections on two-dimensional figures using coordinates.
Temperature Profiles in Permafrost
In this STELLA modeling exercise, students create a model of heat flow in the outer kilometer of Earth's crust. Then they perform experiments to change the air temperature variable in an attempt to replicate the findings of Lachenbruch and Marshall (1986) who used inflections in the geothermal gradient of Alaskan permafrost to search for evidence of recent climatic change. Learning goals, context for use, teaching tips, materials, assessment tips and related resources are provided.
Your one-stop source for learning and teaching about evolution. This website includes information about how evolution works, how evolution impacts our lives, evidence for evolution, and the history of evolutionary thought. There's also an entire Understanding Evolution for Teachers sub-site, which includes lesson plans, a conceptual framework, and discussion of classroom situations that may arise when teaching evolution.
PLoS Medicine is an international, multidisciplinary medical journal that publishes outstanding human studies that substantially enhance the understanding of human health and disease. PLoS Medicine aims to promote translation of basic research into clinical investigation, and of clinical evidence into practice. PLoS Medicine encourages papers that cross disciplines.
"I Would Like to See Them Outlawed": Citizens Complain to Congress about Sweepstakes Promotions
In the 1960s, lottery-like contests designed to publicize products through sweepstakes competitions spread rapidly. In the 19th century, every state banned lotteries--defined as competitions in which chances to win prizes were sold÷to protect citizens. In 1868, Congress prohibited the distribution of lottery materials through the mail. The mid-20th century sweepstakes, however, did not require contestants to purchase tickets or products to win prizes and were thus considered legal. In 1966, the
Solidarity, Sustainability, and Non-Violence
The Pelican Web & E-Journal There is overwhelming evidence that violence is the main obstacle to sustainable development. It is also well known that there is an intrinsic link between patriarchy and violence. Therefore, mitigating violence requires overcoming the patriarchal mindset in both secular and religious institutions. The mission of "The Pelican Web" is to collect and analyze knowledge on patriarchy-induced obstacles to sustainable development, and to publish the free subscription, ope
WWII: The War Economy - US History: from Civil War to Present
What does it mean to be an American? Far from being a fixed concept, over the past 150 years American identity has been constructed and reconstructed through the conflicts, interchanges, and negotiations between different ethnic, cultural, and religious groups. In this course, we will pay particular attention to two major transformations in American identity: the shift from a conception of citizenship grounded on race to one grounded on shared democratic ideals; and the development of the United
Vinegar and baking soda
Vinegar is an acid. An acid has a pH less than 7. When baking soda is added to vinegar, bubbles are produced and gas is released. Fizzing, bubbling, and change in smell are all evidence of a chemical reaction. The amount of gas produced using baking soda as an indicator tells you the relative concentration ...
Worm Experiment Week 1
At week 1, evidence of earthworm decomposition is not present.
Worm Experiment Week 4
At week 4, evidence of earthworm decomposition is beginning to show. The earthworm is eating the dead material and releasing smaller forms of matter into the container.
Examine human impact on the land surface of the Earth as well as evidence of natural processes in this key that emphasizes hands-on interpretation of USGS imagery. This quiz introduces students to the concepts of Remote Sensing, and challenges them to think about the human and physical processes at work that are changing the Earth's surface.
Ranking the Rocks: Lesson
This lesson develops the real-world connections and relationships between the rock properties found in Lesson 5 and the important engineering properties for designing and building caverns (or tunnels, mines, building foundations, etc.). The student teams will use importance factors called "desirability points" to mathematically determine the overall best rocks to build caverns within.

Changing Communities: Past vs. Future
This lesson plan introduces students to changes that have occurred in western North Carolina, through two hundred years of national and regional development. Students will learn about the geographical, political, and technological issues that have influenced change in mountain communities using oral histories by Madison County residents. They will learn about the history of road building in the North Carolina mountains, and the relatively recent decision to connect two halves of interstate highw
Mystery of the Chicxulub Crater: Animation Shows Liquid Impact
