Motion ( Read )

You can probably think of many other examples of things in motion. If you can't, just look around you. It's likely that you'll see something moving, and if nothing else, your eyes will be moving. So you know from experience what motion is. No doubt it seems like a fairly simple concept. BumperDucks. Note: The Adobe Flash plugin is needed to play this game on the web.

You'll Flip Over Forces & Motion

“We are Newtonians, fervent and devout, when we speak of forces and masses, of action and reaction; when we say that a sports team has momentum, when we note the inertia of a tradition or bureaucracy; and when we stretch out an arm and feel the force of gravity all around, pulling earthward.” Physics of Stone Arches.

Physics & Physical Science Demos, Labs, & Projects for High School Teachers

Many of us are the sole physics teacher in their school. It’s nice to know there are others out there to help develop experiments and demonstrations. I will be listing many of my demos and activities along with a commentary on what works and what doesn’t. This will only work if you other teachers add to the site. Comments, ideas, explanations – all are welcome. The school I teach in is new. 2006/2007 was the first year there was a 12th grade. MinutePhysics. Schoolphysics.

Exploration Education Physical Science Advanced {Homeschool Review} Often when I write a product review, I base my opinion on using the product for six or eight weeks.

Exploration Education Physical Science Advanced {Homeschool Review}

This year we used nearly all of Exploration Education's Physical Science Advanced program before I finalized the review. I'm just as pleased with the program after more than thirty weeks of lessons as I was when Brennan first started using it last fall. I've had a hard time picking a science program for Brennan. He's not an avid reader so I don't want something that was very reading intensive. In addition, I'm not necessarily a very organized homeschool mom. Exploration Education has proven to be the perfect balance of text-based materials, online videos, written assignments and hands-on projects.

The material covered in the Physical Science Advanced Version progresses at a steady pace. The curriculum set comes neatly packaged in a small box which contains a Student Logbook, a Teacher's Manual, and the supplies required to complete the daily hands-on activities. Scenes.

Note: Bronx schools in NYC are using a special combination of SciGen units to prepare students for a yearly science fair.Download Science Fair Packet 6.4 Is that really a fair test?

Academic Language Development

This unit introduces students to what “fair” means in science and how to make a test fair. Students learn what variables are and how to control them, why multiple trials are used, and the importance of objective measurement. controlling ● fair ● objective ● process ● trial ● variable 6.5 How do we test that idea? In this unit, students learn how to develop a scientific hypothesis, design and perform an experiment to test their hypothesis, and write about the data gathered. affect ● develop ● hypothesis ● identify ● procedure ● reaction 6.6 Ready to conduct your own investigation? This unit investigates the necessary components of a scientific experiment. Conduct ● determine ● device ● initial ● investigate ● testable. Reading to Learn in Science. SEE-LA GK-12 Lessons.
