Science Sampler : Hypothesis-based learning
Are visions of students hypothesizing, designing experiments to test their explanations, analyzing data, writing formal publications of results, and debating over scientific procedures in an attempt to justify their control of variables dancing in your head? This dream can become a reality when you implement hypothesis-based learning (HBL) into your science curriculum. Follow the suggestions found in this article to put your dream in motion, and wake-up to a classroom teeming with motivated, on-

A Natural Fusion: Math and Science Across the Curriculum : Northwest Teacher, volume 4 number 1
Articles in this issue of Northwest Teacher focus on integrating math and science across the curriculum. Teachers create learning experiences for students, of all grade levels, that transcend the power of any one of them taught in isolation. With todays national spotlight on improving students reading and math skills, the potential for cross-disciplinary teaching of these subjects may be readily apparent. But science, too often nudged to the hinterlands of the curriculum when state standards and

Inquiry-Based Investigation on the Internet : Sound and the Human Ear
This online exploration of sound energy and the human ear includes an activity where students formulate, justify, and evaluate a number of predictions about sound. The investigation, which is intended for two class periods, or approximately 90 minutes of instructional time, is divided into two parts--Sound Waves and Anatomy of the Human Ear. Although these activities can be conducted separately, they build on each other and connect life science and physical science when conducted sequentially.

Grapher : number and operations (grades 6-8)
Using this online manipulative, students can graph one to three functions in the same window, trace the function paths to see coordinates, and zoom in on a region of the graph. Function parameters can be varied as can the domain and range of the display. Tabs allow the student to incorporate fractions, powers, and roots into their functions. Instructions for using the manipulative and a link to the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics (NCTM) standard for number and operations are included

El Nino vs. La Nina
This site offers images and animations showing global sea surface temperature (SST) and sea surface height (SSH) during El Nino of 1997-1998 and La Nina of 1998-1999. Images show the difference between the normal SST for that time of year and the actual temperature, clearly showing the higher and lower Pacific temperatures associated with the El Nino and La Nina events of 1997-1999 respectively. Thus the annual cycle and climatology have been removed from the data. Animations use Pathfinder and

Peripheral Vision Lab
Students practice reading large letters on index cards with their peripheral vision. Then they repeat the experiment while looking through camera lenses, first a lens with a smaller focal length and then a lens with a larger focal length. They then complete a worksheet and explain how the experiment helps them solve the challenge question from lesson 1.

Bone Density Math and Logarithm Introduction
Students should have discovered in their reading from Activity 1 the term “logarithm.” It is at this point that students will begin their study of logarithms. Specifically, they will be examining the definition, history, and relationship to exponents. (Specifically, they will be rewriting exponents as logarithms and vice versa, evaluating expressions, solving for a missing piece.) Students will continue their examination of logarithms by studying the properties of logarithms (Multiplication/

Maximum Power Point
Students learn how to find the maximum power point (MPP) of a photovoltaic (PV) panel in order to optimize its efficiency at creating solar power. They also learn about real-world applications and technologies that use this technique, as well as Ohm’s law and the power equation, which govern a PV panel’s ability to produce power.

Energy Perspectives
Students utilize data tables culled from the US DOE Energy Information Agency to create graphs to illustrate what types of energy we use and how we use it. An MS Excel workbook with several spreadsheets of data is provided. Students pick (or the teacher assigns) one of the data tables for the students to create a plot from and interpret the information provided. Each group of students then shares their interpretation and new perspectives on energy resources and use with the rest of the class.

Energy Resources and Systems
Several activities are included to teach and research the differences between renewable and non-renewable resources and various energy resources. The students work with a quantitative, but simple model of energy resources to show how rapidly a finite, non-renewable energy sources can be depleted, whereas renewable resources continue to be available. The students then complete a homework assignment or a longer, in-depth research project to learn about how various technologies that capture energy
