Math Probability Experiment
A student works on a project for her FLVS M/J Math 2 class about probabilities. She is interviewed on how she is going to set up her experiment with coins and what she thinks the outcome will be. She demonstrates the coin experiment and reports data collected.
Chemical Changes and Conservation of Matter
Where does the weight go when we “lose weight”? What happens when iron rusts? Why are exploding stars able to turn other elements into gold when the alchemists w
Will world population outrun food resources? The "Green Revolution" of the 20th century multiplied crop yields, in part through increasing inputs of pesticides and fertilizers. How can farmers reduce their use of agricultural chemicals and still produce enough food?
Species are being lost at a rapid rate in rainforests and coral reefs. Yet many species still have not been discovered. Tropical scientists struggle to keep ahead of the bulldozers as they work to understand this complex ecosystem. And an ocean biologist predicts the death of life and the "rise of slime" in the sea. How can we protect the biodiversity of these vulnerable
