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.

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. -

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 ...

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". -

Geologic Time Calculations part of Quantitative Skills:Activity Collection

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

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. -

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. -

Virtual Photoelectric Lab part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Teaching with Data Simulations:Examples

This is a virtual lab activity on the photoelectric effect based on a Java applet simulation of the experiment.

Modeling emf, Potential Difference, and Internal Resistance part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

Through class discussion and think-pair-share questions, this activity helps students come to understand the difference between emf and potential difference in electrical circuits. These concepts are broached ...

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

A think, pair, share activity with Socratic questioning to help students begin to understand rocket propulsion. -

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 ...

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 ...

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. -

Projectile and Satellite Orbits part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

Gravitation introductory activity with interesting animation. The activity allows the student to revile the connection between the initial speed and the shape of satellite orbit. -

Understanding the Work Energy Theorem: In the lab or as lecture demonstration part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Teaching with Interactive Demonstrations:Examples

This series of questions before instruction, in-class peer instruction as students come to understanding, and visualization of an important mathematical relationship allow students to iterate and improve their understanding of work incrementally.

Experiment Problem in Kinematics: How Much Does it Take to Win the Race? part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Teaching with Interactive Demonstrations:Examples

In this activity, students are presented with two objects that have different constant speeds and that will race each other. The students must determine which object will win the race, as well as either how much time elapses between the objects crossing the finish line.

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.

Graph Predictions for Position, Velocity and Acceleration part of comPADRE Pedagogic Library:Just in Time Teaching:Examples

Graphical Just-in-Time-Teaching questions for use before classes in which students explore position, velocity and acceleration graphs.
