Though I place them here to give my students 24/7 access, they may also be used by any teacher or student who can benefit from this resource. I have found that it is much easier to incorporate small, topical presentations into my course. Also, I believe that these become more useful to other teachers when I allow you to organize topics as you choose.

I am no longer posting these presentations in Flash. I have shifted completely to HTML 5 format, which means that these can now be viewed on mobile devices with HTML 5 enabled browsers, such as iPhones, iPads, and Android devices. iPad users opening the HTML 5 format will be prompted to download iSpring's free viewer for these presentations. Using the free iPad app, you can save the HTML 5 presentations for offline viewing on the iPad. Android users now have an iSpring viewer as well - get if from Google Play.

Gcse Metal reactivity series experiments - results, observations, conclusions, deductions igcse KS4 science chemistry revision notes revising. 3c. Metal Displacement Reactions (metal + salt solution) All you need is a selection of metals, salt solutions of the same metals (eg. chloride, nitrate or sulphate) and rack of test tubes. The physical state of the metal in terms of granule size or area of sheet doesn't matter in this experiment. See also metal extraction experiments in section 3(d) 3c.

No reaction = no observed change, in some cases where theoretically there should be a reaction, you might not see any change (see Al note below). 3c. Any colour change indicates a displacement reaction has occurred, AND the rule is that a more reactive metal will displace a less reactive metal from its salt solution (irrespective of which salt) Of the series of metals tested magnesium appears to be the most reactive because it displaces all the other metals being investigated here. 3d. 2.

Welcome to the Science Vault. One of world's longest-running experiments is buried in a secret location in Michigan. In 1879, a botanist called William Beal buried 20 glass bottles in a secret spot on the grounds of Michigan State University. Each one was filled with sand and more than 1,000 seeds, and was angled with their uncorked mouths slanted downwards, so that water couldn't collect in them. Four years from now, botanist Frank Teleweski will sneak out to that same location under the cover of darkness - just as many botanists have done before him - to dig up one of the bottles and test which of its seeds are still viable.

After 137 years, there are now only five bottles left, in what has become the world's longest continuous experiment on seed germination. According to Beal's original vision, the experiment was never meant to go on this long. He initially planned for the bottles to be removed every five years, with the entire process taking a century. While the experiment may sound simple, it's proven surprisingly effective. Beal would be so proud. Home Page. Teacher at the Midd-West School district since December of 1988. BS Chemistry Secondary Education - Indiana University of PAMasters in Education - Wilkes University Science Department Philosophy The Midd-West School District will provide each student with a program, which includes aspects of both and physical and biological science. It is necessary for students to acquire the knowledge, understanding and appreciation of these sciences because the growth of civilization depends on progress and change brought about by scientific discoveries and their use.

Further, it is necessary to provide opportunities for those students who have interest and ability to study advanced sciences in order to build upon their best knowledge and understanding and to satisfy their personal and career goals. All of the sciences emphasize experiences, which provide students with opportunities to be creative and to apply known concepts both in the classroom and later in life.

Why We Changed Our Model of the “8 Essential Elements of PBL” Back in the day – September 2010 to be exact, but it feels like long ago - the Buck Institute for Education (BIE) published an article entitled “7 Essentials for Project-Based Learning” in ASCD’s Educational Leadership magazine. Soon thereafter we added an eighth element, “Significant Content,” to counter stereotypes that PBL was not an effective method for teaching standards-based knowledge, understanding, and skills – and to remind teachers to design projects with a clear focus on content standards.

These “8 Essential Elements of PBL” became the framework for our publications and “PBL 101” workshop, which had now been experienced by over 50,000 teachers. That article, and the hexagonal graphic below, has been widely circulated and cited over the past few years. Old Model for PBL In 2014, however, we decided a revision was needed, and developed a more comprehensive, research-based model that we call “Gold Standard PBL.” New Model for Gold Standard PBL What’s gone and what replaces it.

Annenberg Learner - Teacher Professional Development. What is Good Science? Disclaimer: This is a gross generalization of what science is about; science is actually much more complex than how it is described here, but this will give you a basic background if you need it. 1) Science is a human endeavor.

Scientists are all human, with the typical faults and foibles that non-scientists have. Sociology, politics, psychology, and similar aspects of human nature all have a profound influence on how science is conducted. 2) Science follows certain rules and guidelines. Exactly what these rules and guidelines are depends on what area of science a specific scientific procedure falls within. 3) Facts versus opinions. Opinions are neither fact nor theory; they are not officially the domain of science (but don't go thinking that scientists don't have opinions — they are only human, and opinions often help to guide their research). 4) Science generally uses the formulation of falsifiable hypotheses developed via systematic empiricism.

ENSI/SENSI Lesson: Mystery Boxes.

1. Hand a box to each student. If possible, do this as soon as the bell rings, before taking roll. Scatter the types of boxes randomly in each area of the room. Make it clear that the boxes are to remain closed. STUDENTS: will look at boxes, pick them up, shake them, and look for a way to get inside. They will ask questions of the teacher (don't answer)....lots of noise!

2. STUDENTS: will volunteer information, e.g. box shape, size, material, ball inside, obstructions inside, color, etc. 3. 4. 5. STUDENTS: will notice that the boxes aren't all alike, and that some boxes that look similar might be the same inside. 6. STUDENTS: will usually decide that all people with boxes of same color (or label) should compare information and boxes. 7. 8. STUDENTS: will make new drawings or perfect their earlier ones, and remove redundant or incorrect illustrations.

Reporting is not just tied to assessment. It can be used for social and developmental concerns, or simply reporting what is happening within the school. It can be done in writing, face-to-face, online, through conferences, … . It may be system, school, teacher or parent initiated. It can be general or very specific. Below is a collection of resources for reporting from different reporting styles to comment banks, parent/teacher conferences to electronic formats linked to assessment, newsletters, more.
