In the 17th century, scientists understood three phases of matter—solids, liquids and gases (the discovery of plasma, the fourth phase of matter, lay centuries in the future). Back then, solids and liquids were much harder to work with than gases because changes in solids and liquids were difficult to measure with the equipment of the time. So many experimentalists played around with gases to try to deduce fundamental physical laws. Robert Boyle was perhaps the first great experimentalist, and was responsible for what we now consider to be the essence of experimentation: vary one or more parameter, and see how other parameters change in response.

Making the Modern World - Modelling Making the Modern World - Modelling Any gymnast is familiar with the apparatus known as the beam. It is a straight, rigid, horizontal girder, supported solely at its two ends. It is able to withstand the various stresses placed upon it by the gymnast’s manoeuvres without bending or otherwise deforming.

Reglas de higiene matemática « La Ciencia para todos Cuando un estudiante sigue un procedimiento que no nos gusta para resolver un problema debemos darnos cuenta de que es culpa nuestra… lo más normal es que no anden en sus casas haciendo ecuaciones, aplicando la ley de Ohm… Lo que han aprendido mal lo han hecho de nosotros, con mucha frecuencia. Bien, pongámonos de acuerdo y empujemos todos en la misma dirección. En mi instituto (el IES Vicente Aleixandre de Pinto) nos hemos juntado los dptos. de ciencias para acordar una manera común y coherente para la resolución de problemas matemáticos. Así no despistamos a los chavales y además incidimos todos en lo correcto. Reglas de higiene matemática « La Ciencia para todos

But if you are really committed to doing your best, you may want to put down that Red Bull and pick up a stack of index cards. Yes, Flashcards–one of the oldest study methods around–is actually one of the most effective. And now, with the proliferation of mobile devices, you can take advantage of the same benefits of flashcards in a new digitized form. So how do flashcards work and why are they so effective?

El profesor Ernest Lluch insistía en sus magistrales clases de historia del pensamiento económico, que más de la mitad de la resolución correcta de un problema consistía en formular la cuestión a resolver con rigor metodológico y datos ciertos. Tras escuchar al señor Wert, nuestro ministro de Educación Cultura y Deporte, en la rueda prensa posterior al Consejo de Ministros del pasado viernes 13 de abril, nos ha surgido una seria preocupación respecto a cuál es la naturaleza del examen al que se somete a la comisión de expertos creada para hacer propuestas sobre la gobernanza, el proceso de selección y acreditación del profesorado y los estudiantes, y la economía y las finanzas de las universidades.

This is a guest post from Samantha Morra of EdTechTeacher.org, an advertiser on Free Technology for Teachers. Many of us using technology in the classroom find ourselves caught between two worlds: Apple and Google. Apple’s iPad is a fantastic tool in the classroom which provides students with various opportunities to consume, create, and communicate. Similar to a swiss-army knife, it is only limited by how we choose to use it. At the same time, Google apps provide students with cloud-based services, from search to document creation and sharing, that work seamlessly on iPad.
