Metric System Conversions: Process Oriented Guided Inquiry Learning (POGIL) activity part of MnSCU Partnership:PKAL-MnSCU Activities

This activity helps student learn to convert within the metric system and begin learning about process skill necessary for working in groups.

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

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

Learning to Think about Gravity: Newtons's Theory part of 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 the Newtonian understanding of gravity.

Helping Students Discover Total Internal Reflection part of 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 which total internal reflection occurs. Students are then shown what happens with classroom apparatus.

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

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

Models of the Hydrogen Atom part of 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.

The Transformer: Simulation Lecture Demo part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

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

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

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