The Periodic Table of Videos - University of Nottingham

The Periodic Table of Videos - University of Nottingham
Tables charting the chemical elements have been around since the 19th century - but this modern version has a short video about each one. We've done all 118 - but our job's not finished. Now we're updating all the videos with new stories, better samples and bigger experiments. Plus we're making films about other areas of chemistry, latest news and occasional adventures away from the lab. We've also started a new series - The Molecular Videos - featuring our favourite molecules and compounds. All these videos are created by video journalist Brady Haran, featuring real working chemists from the University of Nottingham.

Path to the Periodic Table Lesson Overview This activity allows students to re-create the thought process that Dmitri Mendeleev and Julius Lothar Meyer went through to devise their early periodic tables. The students are given cards (provided at the end of the teacher activity page), each with the name of an element, its symbol, and some properties. Registration Now Open for New Virtual Conference: NGSS Practices in Action Are you looking for practical strategies for integrating the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) into your classroom? Join NSTA for an intensive one-day virtual conference to learn how to apply the NGSS practices with K-12 students.

kamal Wafi 1 General Physics (IGCSE) Play all These videos will hopefully eventually cover all of the topics for IGCSE international GCSE in the Cambridge syllabus labelled general physics. 15:03 5:09 9:20 8:00 6:22 9:54 This item has been hidden This item has been hidden This item has been hidden This item has been hidden This item has been hidden This item has been hidden This item has been hidden Molecular Workbench - Database Molecular Workbench offers interactive, visual simulations and activities that have been widely used in science teaching for students of all ages. Our database is designed to provide teachers and students with easy access to our model-based activities. The activities are derived largely, but not entirely, from projects of the Concord Consortium sponsored by the National Science Foundation (NSF).

theconversation When we say “salt”, we usually mean the stuff we sprinkle on our chips, which is sodium chloride (NaCl). But, technically speaking, this is just one example of a salt. Molecules that have an electrical charge are called ions. Those with a positive charge are cations, and those with a negative charge are anions. They’re like the opposite ends of a magnet, so anions attract cations. Our Projects Automated Scoring for Argumentation In addition to promoting students’ understanding of Earth’s complex systems, this project supports students’ scientific argumentation practices through real-time automated scoring, diagnostics, and feedback. BigDataOur understanding of what K-12 students learn from engineering design is limited. BigData responds to this problem by developing cutting-edge process analytics for K-12 engineering design research. Building ModelsMichigan State University and the Concord Consortium are collaborating to examine how to support secondary school students in constructing and revising models based on disciplinary core ideas and crosscutting concepts to explain scientific phenomena and solve problems.
