Being P-Waves and S-Waves part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Role Playing:Examples

Teach students about P-waves and S-waves by having them model them with their own bodies. -

Density, Buoyancy and Convection part of Teacher Preparation:Resource Collections:Activities

This 3-hour hands-on guided-discovery lab activity teaches students the concepts of density, buoyancy, thermal expansion and convection.

Back-of-the-Envelope Calculations: Weight of Gold part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection

Question Let's suppose that you have a shoe box full of water (the box is waterproof, of course). The shoe box weighs about 9 kg (19.8 pounds). Suppose you emptied the box and filled it completely with rock ...

The Floating Lithosphere - Isostasy part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection

Students are asked to numerically and then analytically determine the relations governing the depth of compensation.

Sonar Demonstration -- Human Sound Wave part of Cutting Edge:Courses:Oceanography:Activities

Sonar technology allowed scientists to produce high-resolution maps of the sea floor for the first time. This sonar demonstration uses a Human Sound Wave to image the "sea floor" in a lecture hall. In ...

The Floating Lithosphere - Isostasy part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection

Students are asked to numerically and then analytically determine the relations governing the depth of compensation.

Geologic Time Calculations part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection

Radiometric age determination using parent/daughter composition and a radiometric decay curve.

The Floating Lithosphere - Eureka! part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection

In this module, students examine Archimede's Principle in general and as it applies to Isostacy.

Waves Through Earth: Interactive Online Mac and PC part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Mathematical and Statistical Models Examples

Students vary the seismic P and S wave velocity through each of four concentric regions of Earth and match "data" for travel times vs. angular distance around Earth's surface from the source to ...

Mass Balance Model part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Mathematical and Statistical Models Examples

Students are introduced to the concept of mass balance, flow rates, and equilibrium using an online interactive water bucket model. -

Visualizing Sun Position of the Seasons part of Cutting Edge:Visualization:Examples

The goal of the exercise is to help students visualize and better understand how the sun changes apparent position over the course of the seasons.

Sun Spot Analysis part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Teaching with Data:Examples

Introductory students use Excel to graph monthly mean Greenwich sunspot numbers from 1749 to 2004 and perform a spectral analysis of the data using the free software program "Spectra". -

Slinky and Waves part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Interactive Lecture Demonstrations:Examples

Use a Slinky to show:P and S waves, Wave reflection, and Standing waves in interactive lecture demonstration. -

Wave Interference part of Cutting Edge:Topics:Deep Earth:Activities

This activity engages students in the exploration of interference between sinusoidal wave forms. They use an interactive applet to manipulate the phase, wavelength, amplitude, and phase velocity of two waveforms ...

The Standard Model: Using CERN output graphics to identify elementary particles part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Just in Time Teaching:Examples

After using the historical development of the Standard Model to develop introductory understanding, students link to OPAL and DELPHI data archives from CERN to identify and study the tracks from elementary particles.

Angular Momentum Experiment part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Just in Time Teaching:Examples

After using the historical development of concepts of conserved motion to develop introductory understanding, students are directed to a series of activities to gain a better understanding of momentum, conservation of momenta, angular momentum, and conservation of angular momenta.
