How to Determine If a Graph Represents a Dilation
Students learn that when the dimensions of a figure are
increased or decreased to create a new figure that is similar to the
original figure, the transformation is called a dilation. Students are
then asked to determine whether a given transformation on a coordinate system represents a dilation. Students are also asked to graph a dilation of a given figure on a coordinate system by multiplying all of the coordinates of the vertices of the figure by a given number. E
Once absorbed into our bodies, lead can have devastating effects on the brain and central nervous system. Learn more about lead poisoning in this short video. 1:32 min.
Separation of National and State Governments
The United States federal system divides power between national and state governments, both of which govern the same constituents. The powers granted to the national government in the Constitution are called delegated powers. There are three types of delegated powers: enumerated powers, implied powers, and inherent powers. (Video is narrated with slides and speeches.)

quantities of length, mass, and capacity, and solve measurement
What Is a Number System?
Understand the nature of the real number system, the elements and
operations that make up the system, and some of the rules that govern the operations. Examine a finite number system that follows some (but not all) of the same rules, and then compare this system to the real number system. Use a number line to classify the numbers we use, and examine how the numbers and operations relate to one another.
Number Sets, Infinity, and Zero
Continue examining the number line and the relationships among sets of numbers that make up the real number system. Explore which operations and properties hold true for each of the sets. Consider the magnitude of these infinite sets and discover that infinity comes in more than one size. Examine place value and the significance of zero in a place value system.
First-graders develop an understanding of the numeration system by
relating counting, grouping, and place-value concepts. Activities
include measuring with Unifix cubes and using base-ten blocks. NCTM
standards: number sense and numeration, measurement, connections.
Our Nearest Neighbor: The Moon
Why is the Moon, our nearest neighbor in the solar system, so different from the Earth? In this session, participants explore the complex connections between the Earth and Moon, the origin of the Moon, and the roles played by gravity and collisions in the Earth–Moon system.
Order Out of Chaos: Our Solar System
Why do all the planets orbit the Sun in the same direction and why are the planets closest to the Sun so different from the gas giants farther out? In this session, participants gain a better understanding of the nature of the solar system by examining its formation.
Lessons From Thin Air Just about everyone will agree that trees are made from sunlight, water, and soil the trees suck up from their roots. But the surprising truth is that trees are made from air! Trees are solar-powered machines that convert air into wood. Why is it that, despite the fact that photosynthesis is one of the most widely taught subjects in science, so few people really under
