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. -

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.

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 ...

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.

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". -

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.

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: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 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.

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