The Egg Squeeze You can squeeze an egg into a jar with just the power of air pressure Solid as a Rock? Rocks may seem solid, but there's more to them than meets the eye. Air Matters You can detect the tiny mass of air with materials from around the house Free Fall. Physics@Home. IB Physics: Activities. In line with the approaches to teaching and learning I am moving to a more student centred approach.

IB Physics: Activities

Instead of me standing by the board asking questions the students now sit by their computers and ask me questions. To this end I have started to produce a series of activity worksheets that combine observation, measurement, theory, simulation and problem solving for each component of the course. Each activity lasts just over an hour with extension work if required. As with the whole of this website IT'S AN ONGOING PROJECT so they are a bit rough and ready, however my students are doing a good job of spotting mistakes and pointing out bits that are difficult to follow and I'm doing a good job of correcting them :-).

Having now started to use these with my classes I can say that, if done properly, many would last quite a bit more than an hour. Free. Search and share chemistry. Education in Chemistry.

Investigation Roadmaps - Motion. Introduction STC Motion and Design is a 15-lesson kit intended for students in grade 5.

Investigation Roadmaps - Motion

It introduces students to the physics of motion and the importance of technological design. More… Big Ideas This kit is focused on both science content ideas and science process skills. Force as a push or pull More… Foundational Images Along with a variety of drawings, sketches, and multiviews, three of our foundational images are used in conjunction with the STC Motion and Design kit: Vectors , Particles and the Magnifier tool. To get a better idea of how some of these foundational images can be used in the classroom, refer to the Motion and Design roadmap below. Modeling Science. Open Source Physics.
