Putting a Twist on Inquiry
After studying linear motion and learning the basic concepts involved, (inertia, force, friction), middle level students can apply their learning to nonlinear situations. Using toy tops is one way to teach students the basic concepts of nonlinear motion in a fun and engaging way. In this activity, students design, construct, and test tops, then present their designs to the rest of the class.

2.14 Summing up
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.

Life Cycles
In this lesson, students will extend their knowledge of matter and energy cycles in an organism to engineering life cycle assessment of a product. Students will learn about product life cycle assessment and the flow of energy through the cycle, comparing it to the flow of nutrients and energy in the life cycle of an organism.

Space Shelter
The invasion has taken place and we need to find a new home. To ensure your survival beyond earth’s occupation you must design a shelter that can be built on another planet. Students will research the characteristics of a planet of their choice. They will design a shelter that will allow them to survive on a new planet, and explain it in words.

Exercise Physiology: The Response of Metabolic Rate to Physical Activity
In this lab, students measure their heart rate, oxygen consumption, and carbon dioxide production in various physical activities on a treadmill or cycle ergometer. After learning the techniques in the first lab period, each group of 3-4 students designs an independent investigation that is performed during the second lab period. To measure metabolic rate, students collect expired air in a Douglas bag, then measure the volume, the temperature, and the concentration of oxygen and carbon dioxide. W
