How Do We Estimate Magma Viscosity? part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build a spreadsheet to examine how magma viscosity varies with temperature, fraction of crystals, and water content using the non-Arrhenian VFT model.

How Does Surface Deformation at an Active Volcano Relate to Pressure and Volume Change in the Magma Chamber? part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build a spreadsheet to examine and apply the Mogi model for horizontal and vertical surface displacement vs. depth and pressure conditions in the magma chamber.

Bubbles in Magmas part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build a spreadsheet and apply the ideal gas law to model the velocity of a bubble rising in a viscous magma.

Being P-Waves and S-Waves part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Role Playing:Examples

Teach students about P-waves and S-waves by having them model them with their own bodies.

Porosity and Permeability of Magmas part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build a spreadsheet for an iterative calculation to find volume of bubbles and hence porosity, permeability and gas escape as a function of depth.

What is the Volume of the 1992 Eruption of Cerro Negro Volcano, Nicaragua? part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build a spreadsheet to calculate the volume a tephra deposit using an exponential-thinning model.

How Do We Estimate Melt Density? part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build spreadsheets to estimate melt density at high temperatures and pressures from the thermodynamic properties of silicates.

Lithospheric Density part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

Students learn about the weighted mean by building spreadsheets that apply this concept to the average density of the oceanic lithosphere.

Sun Spot Analysis part of Pedagogy in Action:Library: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".

Slinky and Waves part of Pedagogy in Action:Library: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 Pedagogy in Action:Library: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.

Waves Through Earth: Interactive Online Mac and PC part of Pedagogy in Action:Library: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 detector.

How are Flow Conditions in Volcanic Conduits Estimated? part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build a spreadsheet to calculate velocity of rising magma in steady-state Plinian eruptions using conservation of mass and momentum.

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.

Virtual Photoelectric Lab part of Pedagogy in Action: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.

The Standard Model: Using CERN output graphics to identify elementary particles part of Pedagogy in Action: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.

Graph Predictions for Position, Velocity and Acceleration part of Pedagogy in Action: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.

Angular Momentum Experiment part of Pedagogy in Action: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.

Introduction to Work and Energy: The Hopper Popper Surprise part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Interactive Lecture Demonstrations:Examples

Understanding the Motion of a Harmonic Oscillator part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Interactive Lecture Demonstrations:Examples

This inteactive lecture and series of demonstrations develops the concepts and vocabulary of oscillatory motion as it relates to the motion of a mass on a spring.
