Anchor vs. Investigative Phenomena. The Next Generation Science Standards emphasize the importance of using phenomena to drive teaching and learning.

Anchor vs. Investigative Phenomena

When thinking about phenomena, it’s important to understand the difference between the two kinds articulated by the National Research Council and NGSS: anchor and investigative phenomena. Anchor Phenomena Anchor phenomena are those observable, real-life contexts that form the basis of a question or a problem to be solved. They are very complex.

They represent questions we can’t answer in a single experiment or problems we can’t solve in one round of prototyping. An example of that might be flooding in New York City. When it comes to anchor phenomena, student questions and connections drive the teaching and learning. 5502j4. Atoms & Molecules Video For Kids. Claim-Evidence-Reasoning (CER) - Model Teaching. Argumentative reasoning is a skill that takes practice.

Claim-Evidence-Reasoning (CER) - Model Teaching

This means that students will not write a perfect CER response their first attempt. They will need guidance and support from you, the teacher, as they write CER answers over labs conducted in class. It is useful for the teacher to model a sample CER response with the students in the beginning. However, students should first attempt to write their own CER response from the lab prior to the modeling. As you discuss with the class your sample CER response make sure you are emphasizing the concepts for a successful claim, evidence, and reasoning answer. Students should use the CER Graphic Organizer resource as they continue to develop their writing skills and analyze their lab results.

Writing a Research Paper for Your Science Fair Project. Overview Year after year, students find that the report called the research paper is the part of the science fair project where they learn the most.

Writing a Research Paper for Your Science Fair Project

So, take it from those who preceded you, the research paper you are preparing to write is super valuable. Scientific Paper Format: How Must an A+ Paper Look Like? Have you been assigned to write a scientific project?

Scientific Paper Format: How Must an A+ Paper Look Like?

Then, it is high time to learn scientific paper format rules. This type of work has certain distinctive features and peculiarities, which you need to know to submit a well-structured assignment. Compared to an essay, which consists of one page, this assignment is a big project that includes several sections. iExploreScience. Teaching NGSS learning in the classroom!

Cellular respiration is the sum of the various biochemical means that eukaryotic organisms employ to extract energy from food, specifically glucose molecules.

Four Stages of Cellular Respiration

The cellular respiration process includes four basic stages or steps: Glycolysis, which occurs in all organisms, prokaryotic and eukaryotic; the bridge reaction, which stets the stage for aerobic respiration; and the Krebs cycle and the electron transport chain, oxygen-dependent pathways that occur in sequence in the mitochondria.

You can study cell structures using a dynamic and realistic virtual model. Included are examples of three types of cells: animal, plant, and bacteria. For each type of cell, you have the option of reading information about the structures of the cell at a Basic, Intermediate, or Advanced level. Home - Science NetLinks. Cell Size and Scale. Some cells are visible to the unaided eye The smallest objects that the unaided human eye can see are about 0.1 mm long.

That means that under the right conditions, you might be able to see an amoeba proteus, a human egg, and a paramecium without using magnification. A magnifying glass can help you to see them more clearly, but they will still look tiny. Smaller cells are easily visible under a light microscope. It's even possible to make out structures within the cell, such as the nucleus, mitochondria and chloroplasts. Biology 2e – Open Textbook. Book Description Biology 2e is designed to cover the scope and sequence requirements of a typical two-semester biology course for science majors.
