DISEÑO Y GENERACIÓN DE MODELOS (2009)
Es imprescindible. Sin visión espacial ni capacidad de construir tus propias ideas, no existe capacidad crítica ni proyectiva donde resolver problemas, con lo cual es difícil que te dediques a esto. Con nosotros aprenderás un poco todo esto y a planificar tu trabajo.

Rdečeglavi lišček - Carduelis carduelis
Samec in samica imata podobno barvo perja, do 15 cm velika. Okrog kljuna je rdeč z belo liso za očmi in po vratu; po tilniku črn. Hrbet rdečkastorjav, peruti so temne s široko prečno rumeno progo; rep je črn. Razširjen je v Evropi in Aziji.,Male and female have similar feather color, up to 15 cm in size. Red around beak with white spot behind eyes and neck, black nape, red-brown back, dark wings with yellow stripe, black tail. Common in Europe and Asia.
V prostoru JxyZET se gibljejo delci in s časom spreminjajo svoj položaj.,Motion of particles in JxyZET space and changing position.
Integrative parametric form-finding processes
The recent developments in digital technologies and contemporary design tools are initiating new approaches of form-finding based on parametric development of multiple geometries with simultaneous consideration of various aspects. This paper focuses on the use of advanced parametric CAD systems and reformulated construction logics to enhance the potential and possibilities of form finding processes. This approach is exemplified through the ?Greenhouse Trauttmansdorff project?. The project demons
Buffon's Coin Experiment
This resource consists of a Java applet and expository text. The applet simulates Buffon's coin experiment. The radius of the coin can be varied. The applet illustrates a random experiment, the sample space, random variables, events, probability, and relative frequency.
Buffon's Needle Experiment
This resource consists of a Java applet and expository text. The applet simulates Buffon's needle experiment and the corresponding approximation of pi. The event of interest is that the needle crosses a crack. The length of the needle can be varied. The applet illustrates a random experiment, the sample space, random variables, probability, and relative frequency.

Red Rover Robotics
This lesson will start with a brief history of robotics and explain how robots are beneficial to science and society. The lesson then will explore how robots have been used in recent space exploration efforts. The engineering design of the two Mars rovers, Spirit and Opportunity, will be used as prime examples. Finally, the maneuverability of their robotic arms and the functionality of their tools will be discussed.
Move Your Muscles!
This lesson covers the topic of muscles. Students learn about the three different types of muscles in the human body and the effects of microgravity on muscles. Students also learn how astronauts need to exercise in order to lessen muscle atrophy in space. Students discover what types of equipment engineers design to help the astronauts exercise while in space.
Monster Me Read Aloud
An animated halloween poem from Highlights. Its about a monster that is going trick or treating. Students will love the rhyming words and surprise at the end. This is a good center activity for the Halloween season. (1:38)
Students use satellite tracking software available on the Internet to monitor a very large satellite, the International Space Station. Using information from this online resource, students predict and graph the motion of the space station at their location and create a 3-D display of its path through the sky.
Atlantean Dodgeball-Rations and Proportions
In this animated Roman video, the Sea Urchins play dodgeball against the Belugas. Ratio errors confuse one of the coaches as two teams face off in an epic dodgeball tournament. See how mathematical techniques such as tables, graphs, measurements and equations help to find the missing part of a proportion. This is a great resource to help middle school students master these important skills. (5:37)
Brain as a Learning Space
This workshop will allow us to collaboratively explore the notion of the brain as an innovative learning space, and will provide models and examples that might encourage students to more actively engage in deep learning and broad investigation, as well as develop confidence in their independent acquisition of knowledge.
Students drop water from different heights to demonstrate the conversion of water's potential energy to kinetic energy. They see how varying the height from which water is dropped affects the splash size. They follow good experiment protocol, take measurements, calculate averages and graph results. In seeing how falling water can be used to do work, they also learn how this energy transformation figures into the engineering design and construction of hydroelectric power plants, dams and reservoi
2.5 Summary of section 2 and questions
This unit looks at how telescopes and spectrographs are designed to improve our ability to observe the universe. You will examine how different technologies have been developed over the last four hundred years to enable us to look deep into space.
