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.
Will the egg break? part of 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 Evolution of Pearson’s Correlation Coefficient/Exploring Relationships between Two Quantitative Variables part of Interactive Lectures:Examples
The evolution of ideas is often ignored in the teaching of statistics. It is important to show students how definitions and formulas evolve. This activity describes a fairly straightforward activity of how measures of association can evolve.
Using an Applet to Demonstrate the Sampling Distribution of an F-statistic part of Interactive Lectures:Examples
This visualization activity combines student data collection with the use of an applet to enhance the understanding of the distributions of mean square treatment (MST), mean square error (MSE) as well as their ratio, an F-distribution. Students will see theoretical distributions of the mean square treatment, mean square error and their ratio and how they compare to the histograms generated by the simulated data.
Learning to Think about Gravity: Newtons 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.
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.
Using an Applet to Demonstrate Sampling Distributions of Regression Coefficients part of Interactive Lectures:Examples
This applet simulates a linear regression plot and the corresponding intercept and slope histograms. The program allows the user to change settings such as slope, standard deviation, sample size, and more.
Using an Applet to Demonstrate a Sampling Distribution part of Interactive Lectures:Examples
Introducing sampling distribution through cooperative learning among students using a group activity. Afterwards, use the sampling distribution applet to illustrate.
Psychic test part of Interactive Lectures:Examples
Show relative frequency converging to true probability by testing the psychic ability of your students.
