Models of the Hydrogen Atom part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

In this interactive lecture, models of the hydrogen atom are explored using an online Java applet. The exploration leads to qualitative and quantitative analysis of energy transitions. -

Helping Students Discover Total Internal Reflection part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

Students learn the basic relationship of Snell's Law, practice applying it to a situation, then are given another situation where it "doesn't work."??? This situation turns out to be one in ...

Measuring voltage and current in a DC circuit part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

These exercises target student misconceptions about how to properly measure voltage and current in simple DC circuits by letting them investigate different meter arrangements without fear of damaging equipment. ...

Concept Questions for the Photoelectric Effect with Interactive Simulation part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

These are interactive lecture-demonstration questions probe student understanding of fundamental concepts in the photoelectric effect. -

Interactive Lecture Questions for Single Slit Diffraction part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

This is a set of interactive lecture demonstration questions designed to probe student understanding of single-slit diffraction. -

Learning to Think about Gravity II: Aristotle to Einstein part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

The purpose of this exercise is to learn how to think about gravity, learn about scientific methodology, and transition from the Aristotelian to Newtonian to Einsteinian understanding of gravity. -

Think-Pair-Share Analysis of the Operation of a Metal Detector part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

The activity presents a Think-Pair-Share analysis of a metal detector including a simulation. -

Work: pre, during and post class questions part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

This series of questions before instruction, in-class peer instruction, and post-instruction allow students to iterate and improve their understanding of work incrementally. -

Will the egg break? part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

This is a discrepant event that can be used to help students understand applications of the momentum-impulse theorem. Students are first asked to predict and hypothesize what will happen when an egg is thrown into ...

The Transformer: Simulation Lecture Demo part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

The activity presents an interactive lecture demonstration of the operation of a transformer using a simulation. -

Science on a Skateboard - Applications of Newton's Third Law part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

Accessible Solar System on a String part of Teacher Preparation:Resource Collections:Activities

Explore the solar system using your senses.

Hurricanes Unit Overview part of EarthLabs for Educators:Hurricanes

In this EarthLabs module, students will do hands-on experiments and study hurricanes in satellite imagery and visualizations. They'll also explore over 150 years of storm data to find out when and where these storms occur. If students are studying hurricanes during hurricane season, they can monitor the position and status of storms in real time. Hurricanes can serve as an exciting entry point into understanding everyday weather, or a culminating topic for an Earth system or environmental science unit.

Pressure Melting of Ice: While-U-Wait part of Starting Point-Teaching Entry Level Geoscience:Interactive Lecture Demonstrations:Examples

In this demonstration, students get to witness pressure melting and regelation first-hand. A weight is suspended via a thin wire over an ice cube. Over the course of the course of the demonstration, the wire ...
