Fraction four
In this two-player online game, students combine math skills and strategies to practice simplifying, converting, and multiplying decimals, percentages, and fractions. For each correct answer, the player places a colored ball on a 10-by-10 grid. The first person to place four balls of his or her color together in a row or diagonally wins. Students can choose different difficulty levels, response time limits, and types of questions. Problems range from simple calculations for reducing fractions to

Who Was Charles Darwin?
In this lesson, students will learn firsthand, by reading his journal entries and letters, how Darwin arrived at his theory. They also will gain a better sense of Darwin's journey and the role it played in his scientific career. In the first activity, Darwin's Great Voyage of Discovery, students will read his account of his voyage on the Beagle and see how this experience inspired him to devote the rest of his life to developing and refining the theory of natural selection. The second activity,

Quick take on the wide, wide world of geometry
As the social studies, art, and music classes in the middle school widen students horizons, some of your students may become fascinated with the art, costumes, and customs of other peoples in this and other times. The NCTM Principles and Standards calls for middle school students to be able to recognize and apply geometric ideas and relationships in areas outside the mathematics classroom, such as art, science, and everyday life.

Tides and gravity labs
How does gravity cause tides in the oceans? This section, part of an interactive laboratory series for grades 8-12, introduces students to four activities on tides and gravity that cover critical orbital speed between Earth and the moon, gravitational forces between two bodies, tidal effects from the sun and moon, and the change in tidal levels over time. The activities include hands-on animations of concepts whose variables can be manipulated by students. Questions posed to students include ans

Science Sampler : The sweet Earth
A great number of geologic processes either take unimaginable lengths of time to complete, or happen in places that cannot be directly observed, such as under the Earth's crust. It is, therefore, necessary for an Earth science teacher to find a connection between students' experiences and the geologic process they are studying to help them better understand that which is often unobservable. One Earth science topic with a tendency to be beyond the reach of direct observation for students is rock

The future of energy, efficiency
Energy-efficient appliances and vehicles can greatly reduce the amount of energy Americans use. This informational piece, part of a series about the future of energy, introduces students to the consequences of using energy more efficiently. An example about baking a pie provides students with a practical definition of efficiency. A discussion of energy-efficient appliances and processes follows as students read about the Energy Star label. The overall efficiency of a power plant is described, sh

Observe an animation of volcanism at a subduction zone
This Earth science resource features an animation of the volcanic activity that occurs when an oceanic plate subducts under a continental plate. An introductory paragraph provides background information about the events depicted in the animation. These events include the creation and eruption of magma and the formation of volcanic mountains at a subduction zone. Key features such as the asthenosphere are labeled at the beginning of the animation, and arrows indicate the direction of the oceanic

Who Can Make the Best Coordinate System?
Students will learn about coordinate systems in general by considering questions concerning what it is that the systems should do, and who decided they would look the way that they look. They will attempt to try and make their own coordinate system using a common area across all groups and compete to see who can make the best one. Students then analyze why it is that some systems work better than others and consider what those observations mean for evaluating and choosing geographic coordinate s
