How to Read a Coronavirus Study, or Any Science Paper. Chromebook - PhET Simulations. Maths. All demos. Smithsonian Open Access. Review: ‘Seven Brief Lessons on Physics’ Is Long on Knowledge. The short and resonant essays in Carlo Rovelli’s “Seven Brief Lessons on Physics” began as columns in Il Sole 24 Ore, the Italian newspaper.

Review: ‘Seven Brief Lessons on Physics’ Is Long on Knowledge

Even better, they appeared in that paper’s culture section, its editors sensing that its arty readers could use a bit of stretching. Mr. Rovelli is a theoretical physicist, one of the founders of loop quantum gravity theory, and he possesses a welcoming prose style. His columns were a sensation. First gathered into a book in Italy two years ago, they outsold “Fifty Shades of Grey” in that country. Of the five words in this book’s title, the second explains its immediate appeal.

The essays in “Seven Brief Lessons on Physics” arrive like shots of espresso, which you can consume the way the Italians do, quickly and while standing up. Mr. He is at his best, however, when spanking those same literature majors for their condescension toward higher mathematics. Image “Myths nourish science, and science nourishes myth,” Mr. Curiosities do abound here. Mr. How to Use Video in Science Projects (feat. Adobe Spark)

Video is a powerful medium.

How to Use Video in Science Projects (feat. Adobe Spark)

Students can talk about their learning, capture moments, and share their ideas with the world! Ready to take a new spin on your typical science projects? I can’t wait to share some science project ideas with you that are customizable for any age group! In addition to speaking at conferences and special events, part of my professional development work includes spending time with teachers and students in classrooms. I recently had the chance to work with a group of enthusiastic fifth graders as they used Adobe Spark to share their research about severe storms. Today we’ll talk about using video with students in the science classroom.

Video in Science Projects In this blog post, I’ll take you through my favorite strategies for using video as part of a science project. Download these graphic organizers to help you get started with these project ideas! Recording Predictions Regular readers of the blog (sign up here) know that I love sharing Adobe Spark combos.

uHandy Microscope Review for Teachers (2019)

Individual kids can use this digital microscope to explore their own passions. Premade sample cards are provided already loaded with spices, a down feather, or glitter. These examples can get kids excited about other items they might want to examine around the house or neighborhood. In the classroom, microscopes allow for those amazing "aha" moments like examining salt and seeing its underlying structure. This helps students to understand that some phenomena can be observed only at microscopic scale (a Next Generation Science Standards Crosscutting Concept). Depending on grade level and needs, uHandy may not be a cheaper option. Continue readingShow less. (2019)
