Mrs. Matthews Penicillin and Bacteria Necklaces
Mrs. Matthews class has been learning about unicellular organisms - including bacteria. Last week the students made bacteria beads out of play-doh during their centers. They also made a penicillin bead to "kill off" the bacteria. After allowing time for the play-doh to dry, the students then put all of their beads onto a necklace as they studied four famous scientists in the world of microbes (Fleming, Pasteur, Lister, and Salk). Today they learned that Alexander Fleming discovered

How Does the Worm Factory Work
The Worm Factory 360 is a home composting solution for your kitchen and household waste. Although this video was obviously made to promote the purchase of the Worm Factory 360, it does a very nice job of describing the basic process of how composting works. The video could also be used as inspiration to brainstorm and design new models for a successful compost bin. Run time 03:05.

La natura della mediazione offerta dai sistemi basati su micromondi all’apprendimento della matema
In questo articolo prenderemo in esame il sistema ARI-LAB che abbiamo realizzato per sostenere gli alunni nello sviluppo di capacità nel problem solving aritmetico e cercheremo di descrivere alcune caratteristiche che questo software rende disponibile con il fine di valutarne le potenzialità sul terreno didattico. Nel fare ciò assumeremo due riferimenti: da una parte l'analisi della natura del sapere coinvolto nel problem solving aritmetico, descritta nella prima parte di questo lavoro, dall'

Eastman Jazz: Two Ways to the Same Stage
Each spring, two of the big bands at Eastman, the Eastman Jazz Ensemble and the Eastman New Jazz Ensemble, put together a split concert that they perform in Kilbourn Hall. While the two bands have a similar makeup in terms of the size of the group and the instruments, they each take a very different approach to the music that they will play on the very same stage. While the Eastman New Jazz Ensemble is known for playing newer music, the approach of ensemble director Dave Rivello is a rather tra
A Closer Look at Oil and Energy Consumption

Rose Bowl : can a football team score 11 points in a game?
This activity uses the history of the Rose Bowl football tournament to examine numerical combinations. It asks the student how many different ways a football team can end a game with 11 points, something that has never happened in Rose Bowl history. The activity, part of the Figure This! collection of 80 math challenges emphasizing math in the real world, also considers possible numerical combinations for playing darts and introduces the concept of a perfect number. It suggests that students mak
Middle School Portal: Math and Science Pathways (MSP2)
This activity asks the student to determine the time in Cairo, Egypt, when it is 3:00 p.m. in San Francisco. It includes a map of the world with the time zones marked. The activity, part of the Figure This! collection of 80 math challenges emphasizing math in the real world, explains how to determine the time in different time zones and what the prime meridian and the international date line are. Students see how positive and negative numbers relate to the time zones and are asked to think about
Cut the cake : what's a fair share?
In this activity students determine how to divide a square cake into six pieces with equal volume and surface area. The activity, part of the Figure This! collection of 80 math challenges emphasizing math in the real world, explains why properties of three-dimensional objects can be determined by examining their two-dimensional faces. Students see how to use the perimeter measurement of the cake to find two possible ways to divide it. The activity page contains links to a solution hint, the solu
