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.

Measuring voltage and current in a DC circuit part of 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. These activities also are designed to lead to other investigations about simple DC circuits.

Concept Questions for the Photoelectric Effect with Interactive Simulation part of 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 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 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 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.

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.

Rutherford's Model of the Atom part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

Students are asked think-pair-share questions to predict the interaction of alpha particles fired toward the nucleus of an atom. An online applet is used to illustrate the interaction and test students' ideas for the causes of the interaction. This activity uses a resource in the comPADRE partner collection.

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.

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.
