Igneous Rocks for Undergraduate Courses
This site contains photographs of 22 igneous rock hand samples. Clicking on an image brings up a larger view of the sample. In addition, links to thin sections are available for some of the samples. Thin sections can be seen in both crossed polarized light and plane polarized light by moving the cursor on and off the photomicrograph. This resource is part of the Teaching Petrology collection. http://serc.carleton.edu/NAGTWorkshops/petrology03/index.html
Wildlife Management Activity Guide for Teachers
Whether your school has a 40 acre school forest or a 40 square foot school yard lawn, we urge you to get your students involved in some hands-on wildlife management. It is a relevant real world issue that will also expose them to disciplines other than science as they learn all the complexities of land management. A few teachers are teaching about a variety of game species and habitats. Others are developing small native plant gardens which provide basic needs for native butterflies and birds. P
You Decide: Is the Bush Administration's "No Child Left Behind" policy of high-stakes testing good f
This educational guide focuses on high-stakes testing in public education and the related social, legal, personal, political, national and local implications surrounding the issue. Students are invited to examine arguments from both sides of the debate, developing critical thinking skills as they work through the activities and learn how to support their arguments with evidence and reason. It is expected that students will effectively determine where they stand on this controversial issue and be
Diamonds and Light
Dr. Marko Loncar and two of his graduate students talk about using diamonds to create optics based computers that are smaller, faster, and 'cooler' than our current computational machines.
The lesson begins with a demonstration introducing students to the force between two current carrying loops, comparing the attraction and repulsion between the loops to that between two magnets. After formal lecture on Ampere’s law, students begin to use the concepts to calculate the magnetic field around a loop. This is applied to determine the magnetic field of a toroid, imagining a toroid as a looped solenoid.
Fibonacci Numbers: Identifying Patterns
Lesson Objective:Students rotate through a series of tasks identifying patterns. Questions to Consider:Although not formally taught until high school functions, how do Fibonacci sequences engage students in understanding number patterns?How does this lesson provide for natural differentiation?What preparation is key to implement this activity in your classroom?

Calisphere Themed Collection - 1780-1880: California in Transition: Californio Society, 1830s-1880s
This is a primary source photo collection on Californios, elite families that received large land grants from Spain and Mexico, flourished during the 1830s to 1880s. The hand-drawn diseño maps underscore their vital connection to land ownership. The more formal surveyed maps that followed US acquisition of California show changing values regarding land ownership. As Californios lost land and power in the late 19th century, they tried to adapt to these changes by using social networks to maintai

The purpose of this activity is to demonstrate some of the different parts of an airplane through the construction of a paper airplane. Students will build several different kinds of paper airplanes in order to figure out what makes an airplane fly and what can be changed to influence the flying characteristics of an airplane.
Young Nile Crocodiles---Sitting on Mom, Hunting Fish and Dragonflies, and Being Eaten by Nile Perch
This short video gives excellent real life footage of the life of a young Nile Crocodile. Students will enjoy the close up views of the young crocodiles sitting on Mom in the water, hunting fish, catching a dragonfly, and one being swallowed by a huge Nile Perch. This is a great resource to help build background knowledge and to help make real world connections between nature and the classroom. (Less Than 3 Minutes)
