Social Capital and the Distribution of Household Income in the United States: 1980, 1990, and 2000
Social capital is a person or group's sympathy or sense of obligation for another person or group. The objects of sympathetic feelings have social capital. Those holding sympathetic feelings for others provide social capital. Because social capital providers internalize the consequences of their choices, they trade with each other on different terms and at different levels that would occur in arm's length transactions, all other things equal. But changes in the terms and level of trade al
Digital Documentation: Merging the Traditional Laboratory Experience with Digital Imaging Technology
In this investigation, students will become proficient in the use of integrated digital technology as they capture images of exemplary specimens with digital microscopes. Students can later use these images individually to compose and illustrate original lab manuals (digital notebooks) or in collaborative groups to design multimedia presentations. Students actively engage in their learning and participate in high levels of cognitive functioning as they construct knowledge about the phyla they ar
100th Day of School Activities
Resources to mark the 100th day of school with math activities. Challenge students to generate 100 different ways to represent the number 100. Students will easily generate 99 + 1 and 50 + 50, but encourage them to think out of the box. Challenge them to include examples from all of the NCTM Standards strands: number sense, numerical operations, geometry, measurement, algebra, patterns, data analysis, probability, discrete math, Create a class list to record the best entries. Some teachers write
Hundred Board Activities 1
Students learn the patterns in the hundred board by assembling puzzles. Teachers are able to assess student use of patterns in rows and columns by observing the student at work. This task is easily differentiated to accommodate the varied levels in a first grade class by changing the number of pieces and the shape of the pieces. Puzzle bags should be sequentially lettered so that students progress through harder versions of the task. Finally, students are asked to create their own puzzles for cl
Math Tours: Fractions
Students need many concrete experiences with fractions to develop a deep understanding of the three models of fractions: area, linear and set models. Teachers need to address all three models in well-designed instructional activities so that students develop a rich concept of fractions that they can use to make sense of numbers, operations, measurement and probability. The Math Tours include: activities, problem solving, games, writing to learn, templates, math-literature connections, and web li
Instructional Strategies for Mental Math
These strategies support active student participation in math lessons and allow teachers to assess the developing proficiency levels of all students in the class by walking around to monitor student responses. These strategies are especially effective during the Mental Math part of an Everyday Mathematics lesson.
This applet covers an aspect of the Physical Chemistry II course that students often find confusing. Although it is based on relatively simple mathematics, a complete understanding of the phenomenon requires assimilating the following concepts: The energy levels of a diatomic molecule are given by the formula: E(v,J) = hv (v + ½) + BJ (J + 1); v = 0..infinity, J=0..infinity. A molecule absorbs light at frequencies that correspond to difference between energy levels. In this case, we are interes
Organization of Parties
Political parties in America are organized much like the federal government—each has offices at the national, state, and local levels. Each level has a committee and chairperson to oversee party activities. (Video is narrated with slides and speeches.)
SIMply Prairie: Prairie Advocates
In this multidisciplinary, inquiry-based project students prepare a plan and give a persuasive oral presentation to create a reconstructed prairie based on research. Teachers can use this unit with their students to justify enlarging or keeping an existing prairie. This project can serve as the organizing structure for prairie study where materials from units such as The Prairie – Our Heartland become research materials. It can be used in conjunction with the unit which is taught best in the f
The Hero - A Classical Story Element
Every story has a hero. The author discusses how a hero a character in every story that identifies with an audience. He uses Little Red Riding Hood to show how important the hero is to a story. This can be used for mid-elementary levels to middle school.
Climate change: island life in a volatile world
What impact will global warming really have? This unit examines the potential problems faced by the people of the Pacific Island of Tuvalu as a result of rising sea levels. Where would you go if your island is only a few feet above sea level? Who would you blame?
Using data from the National Climate Data Center (NCDC) track snowfall in your area and assess snowfall levels from the Winter Olympics.
Kinematics and dynamics are presented here in multimedia, at introductory and also at deeper levels. Individual video clips and animations are suitable for use by teachers, while students may use the whole package for self instruction or for reference.
Irrigation Conveyance & Control Systems
