Students learn about matter and molecules as they investigate the relationships between energy and changes of state by observing water change from ice to steam. Students share, discuss, and analyze their theories. They must be able to defend their answers and answer classmates' questions, thus demonstrating conceptual understanding.
Workshop 1: What is Energy?
Interviews about energy with children, scientists, and people on the street reveal the wide range of concepts that teachers encounter. In this session, you will look at the differences between the everyday language of energy and the scientific concept, see highlights of its history, and learn its importance in our understanding of the world.
Evaluation of Skills for Work pilot courses: Final Report
This is a final report on the evaluation of Skills for Work Pilot courses in Scotland. The aim of the resource is to report on the findings from research carried out by the National Foundation for Educational Research examining the piloting of Skills for Work (SfW) courses over two years. Skills for Work (SfW) courses were introduced via a two year pilot to help young people to develop skills and knowledge in a broad vocational area, core skills, an understanding of the workplace, positive attit
Sci-tutors: Physical Processes: Energy Resources and Energy Transfer
This article from the Sci-tutors website explores the development of the 'energy' concept and some of the barriers to its understanding. In particular, the idea of dealing with 'energy transfer' rather than 'types of energy' is stressed since many trainees (and most tutors) have themselves been taught and well drilled in the latter approach. There are a number of downloads that provide teaching material that can be adapted for use with trainees and practical experiences useful to support the und
Customer Voice Research - Raising Standards
This resource is a brief report of a small scale qualitative research project commissioned by the Department of Children, Schools and Families into understanding the motivations and barriers for parents getting involved in helping to raise standards and increase the supply of good school places.
Perception: Inverted Vision
The peculiar image inversion process that takes place in the normal visual system is examined in this module. The program traces the experiences of an art student who volunteers to wear lenses that invert her visual world, connecting the adaptation process she undergoes with how the visual system functions. Graphic animations reinforce understanding of the mechanism invo
IELTS discussion essay writing (part 1 of 5)
In this lesson, we write a discussion essay together following IELTS essay writing guidelines. The final essay is roughly 280 words in length. This video discusses understanding the topic, the scope, coming up with ideas/details, (4:50)
Microsoft Access Tutorial : How to Create a Microsoft Access Form Based on More Than 1 Table
In Microsoft Access, creating a form that is based upon more than one table requires an understanding that it is a form plus a sub-form. Use the form wizard to choose more than one table in Microsoft Access with help from a computer programming teacher in this free video on Microsoft Access. (4:26)

Classifying clouds is crucial to understanding weather systems, learn how to become a meteorologist and predict the weather in this free video. Part of the series: How To Predict The Weather. Run time 01:52.
Clouds are formed by parcels of rising air that cool and create tiny droplets of water. Learn about dew points and how they affect moisture going from a gas to a liquid with help from a meteorologist in this video on understanding weather. Run time 01:02.
Poor sound quality, but content is important.This unit provides fifth through seventh graders a better understanding of food safety through real-life examples and enjoyable activities. The teacher needs to order the free unit of study first.
This is a short, culminating activity that can be used to assess your students' understanding of the steps needed to determine if a water source is contaminated and how it got that way, and to suggest possible methods of cleanup or remediation. Students review a portion of the film "A Civil Action" and identify the problem and the people involved. Students then take the role of environmental scientist and apply their knowledge of water and hazardous waste contamination to create a plan to help l

Understanding weather advisories is crucial to predicting the weather. Learn how to predict these meteorological advisories in this video. Meteorologist Melissa Schenk briefly explains air quality, smog advisories, and the UV index. Part of the series: How To Predict The Weather. Run time 01:04.
Description not set
Just like with building triads, building a major scale is about understanding the intervals between each note of the scale. If you understand this, you can build any major scale.
All major scales follow this pattern:
(W = Whole Step, H = Half Step)
W - W - H - W - W - W - H
So let's look at the notes of a C major scale. They are shown below with the interval between each note in parenthesis:
C (W) D (W) E (H) F (W) G (W) A (W) B (H
Sal Khan continues his discussion using the same statement as the last video in this series, but adds a different logic problem to solve: "Identify the hypothesis and conclusion of the following statement, and determine whether the statement is always, sometimes, or never true." In this video, Sal offers an introduction to understanding mathematical logic statements. Sal uses the Paint Program (with different colors) to illustrate his points. (06:43)
This video offers a brief glimpse of understanding function questions on the SAT Math exam. (01:26)
A simulation game designed to create better understanding of the problems facing refugees. Participants go through a number of steps which attempt to simulate the refugee experience, from flight to arrival in the refugee camp as well as the difficulties of integration and repatriation of refugees.
