Distance training, a key mode to support teachers in the integration of ICT ? Towards collaborative
The integration of ICT into the teaching and learning of school subjects remains still rather weak, even in highschools. Changes in users' practices required by such integration have probably been underestimated: teachers are obliged to question and change their professional practices. It turns out that standard training sessions towards ICT have been found to be unsuited for supporting teachers in overcoming their difficulties with this integration. This document describes a specific distance,
Mastering by the teacher of the instrumental genesis in CAS environments: necessity of instrumental
In this article, we study didactic phenomena identified in integration experiments within our classes, CAS(implemented in calculators). From this study, we show the interest of an instrumental approach to understand the influence of tools on the mathematical approach and on the building of students' knowledge: through a process - instrumental genesis - a calculator becomes a mathematical work tool; this process depends on the tool's constraints and potentialities, on students' knowledge, and on
Química Física II
Se trata de una asignatura de contenidos generales de Química Física. Esta organizada en tres bloques. El primero se dedica a la Cinética Química fenomenológica o Cinética Química formal.

Integration of Environmental Analytical Chemistry with Environmental Law: The Development of a Probl
This JCE paper is well written, generous referenced and will serve as an excellent reference for anyone interested in adapting and implementing this problem-based approach to an upper-level environmental analysis laboratory that emphasis QC/QA and performance-based analytical methods.
The essence of industrial design engineering (IDE) is designing and improving products which are used daily and intensively, at home or at work. The faculty is committed to study, innovate and improve the development of durable products and their services for people, on the basis of the balanced interests of users, industry, society and the environment. The faculty pursues this mission through a multidisciplinary approach that integrates human aspects - i.e. ergonomics, market, organisation and
CHEM 121 - Quantitative Analysis
Lecture notes, presentations (HTML and PDF), sample exams and their solutions for an introductory quantitative analysis and an instrumental analysis course.
Middle School Portal: Math and Science Pathways (MSP2)
This resource discusses how scientists and engineers study biological systems to develop artificial systems, in this case artificial olfaction. The sense of smell is extremely complex, and scientists working on artificial olfaction have had to study this biological system extensively to extract some basic principles upon which to build their devices. Disciplines of emphasis will involve biology, chemistry, electronics, and teamwork. Copyright 2005 International Technology Education Association
Measuring Henry's cabin
This resource introduces students to the aspects a builder must think about before constructing a building. Students will study the cabin blueprint of Henry David Thoreau and then will find the surface area of the walls and how much paint would be needed. Then, students will find the volume of the cabin to determine the home heating needs. Thirdly, students will study the blueprint and will create a 1/10 scale of it on graph paper and then will use art supplies to create a model of the cabin. La
Middle School Portal: Math and Science Pathways (MSP2)
This lesson is a design project that students write and construct a pop-up book about the contributions of women to technology and science. Students acquire information about famous women and learn basic paper engineering. Learners then choose a famous woman or several women to study and write about.
