Cups and Volume
How can I calculate the volume of a box, if I know how many cups of rice fill it? And how can 2 cups be a volume measure?
Matching the Motion
Students will learn about slope, determining slope, distance vs. time graphs through a motion filled activity. They will be split into groups with calculators and CBL motion detectors and attempt to match the graphs and equations given to them with the output from the detector that is displayed on their calculators.
Magnetic Fields Matter
This lesson introduces students to the effects of magnetic fields in matter addressing permanent magnets, diamagnetism, paramagnetism, ferromagnetism, and magnetization. First students must compare the magnetic field of a solenoid to the magnetic field of a permanent magnet. Students then learn the response of diamagnetic, paramagnetic, and ferromagnetic material to a magnetic field. Now aware of the mechanism causing a solid to respond to a field, students learn how to measure the response by l
Conduction, Convection, and Radiation
With the help of simple, teacher-led demonstration activities, students learn the basic concepts of heat transfer by means of conduction, convection, and radiation. Students then apply these concepts as they work in teams to solve two problems. One problem requires that they maintain the warm temperature of one soda can filled with water at approximately body temperature, and the other problem is to cause an identical soda can of warm water to cool as much as possible during the same thirty-minu
Lost in the Amazon
The Lost in the Amazon curricular unit is a series of minds-on and hands-on engineering activities based in the Amazon rainforest in Brazil. Motivated by an adventurous theme, students discover, learn and apply the following: 1) Classification of Plants and Insects; 2) General Categorizing Skills; 3) Process Skills: Problem Solving and Critical Thinking; 4) Scientific Testing and Experimentation; 5) Properties of Materials The investigative, exploratory and problem solving nature of Lost in the
Rocks, Rocks, Rocks
Student teams will test rocks to identify and record rock properties such as luster, hardness, color, etc., and classify rocks as igneous, metamorphic and sedimentary. They will complete a worksheet table with all of their rock properties, and then answer some worksheet questions to deepen their understanding of rock properties and relate them to the cavern design problem.
Protests erupt across Syria
Protesters took to the streets in several Syrian cities on Friday - in a direct challenge to the rule of President Bashar al-Assad. Jon Decker reports.
Travel With Care Safety Tip 1
The City of Auburn and Auburn University have partnered to bring Travel With Care Auburn, a public safety campaign aimed at audiences using all forms of transportation: motorists, pedestrians, cyclists, and transit riders. Throughout the week of April 4-8, members of the Auburn Public Safety - Police Division will be patrolling city streets and the Auburn University campus to bring awareness to traffic issues, while student volunteers will pass out informational brochures.
A Walk along the Kennet
Description not set
Students learn about the physical force of linear momentum movement in a straight line by investigating collisions. They learn an equation that engineers use to describe momentum. Students also investigate the psychological phenomenon of momentum; they see how the "big mo" of the bandwagon effect contributes to the development of fads and manias, and how modern technology and mass media accelerate and intensify the effect.
6.4 Technology and environment
Global warming: are we responsible? Is our environmental impact damaging the planet? This unit examines the use of ozone depleting technology, the impact of fossil fuel use and explores how the development of technology can influence the direction of a society. From the Industrial Revolution to the present day find out how we have changed the planet.
More Is More
The goal of our project is to promote awareness of the dangers of misusing combination products and to emphasize the importance of checking drug fact labels for the active ingredients in over the counter medications. Our target audience is consumers.
Are you about to undertake a PhD in science, technology or mathematics? If so, this unit will help you to examine your work processes. You will consider and develop the nature of postgraduate work and look at the planning of work needed at doctoral level.
Adolescent Literacy Part II
This project is designed to put relevant and helpful online resources into the hands of teachers making the transition between Strategic Reading and Second Semester English. You will find a list of Read-Alike resources, Rubric Generators, and downloadable blank templates for planning weekly reading and/or writing lessons.

Diversity of leaves
The diversity of land plants can be seen in the diversity of their leaves. Leaves vary by color, vein arrangement, shape, texture, and thickness.
7.6 Have you got a project coming up that requires a new skill?
What is your experience of work and what did you learn from this experience? This unit will enable you to reflect upon what you have learned from work and support you in improving how you learn at work. It will encourage you to think critically about work-based learning and review your own professional knowledge and skills.
Goldfish external anatomy
Goldfish live in the water. They use their gills to breathe. Goldfish swim in water to move around. This goldfish has pectoral fins, pelvic fins, anal fins, and dorsal fins that it uses to swim. The tail is used to steer the goldfish wherever it is going.
