Trends in Alkane Boiling Points part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity is an investigation into the relationship between alkane length and boiling points. Students develop a mathematical model of this relationship and use it to make predictions and error analysis.

Subject: Mathematics, Chemistry:Organic Chemistry

Investigating Projectile Motion: Predicting Point of Impact part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
Students will understand that projectile motion is a result of two independent motions, horizontal and vertical by reading, problem-solving, and experimentation.

Subject: Physics:Classical Mechanics:Projectile Motion

Marshmallow Models part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection
This activity will take complex molecules and polyatomic ions the students have learned and construct them out of marshmallows and redhots. This develops understanding in VESPR structures and hybrid molecules.
