Physics | 8.01 Physics I: Classical Mechanics, Fall 1999 schoolphysics ::Welcome:: Curiosity Cabinet Over the past 25 years I have accumulated a collection of various gizmos, devices, toys etc. which to me are excellent examples of scientific principles or things that you look at and you say "That's impossible!" except it's staring you in the face. In the hope that others may also find them interesting and with the help of two undergraduates, Jacy Lundberg and Omar Khan, we have created videos of many of the items in the collection. Jacy and Omar are currently seniors in the Boston College pre-medical program. In the olden days some people assembled what were known as curiosity cabinets.

The Physics Classroom Education trends and analysis from Vicki Davis classroom teacher Vicki Davis on EdutopiaNovember 3, 2015 The sixth annual Global Education Conference 2015 is a free week-long online event bringing together educators and innovators from around the world. This year’s conference will take place Monday, November 16 through Thursday, November 19, 2015. The entire conference is virtual and will take place online in webinar format. Sessions are held around the clock […] In A Story of a Young Life Turned Around by Great Teachers, Kevin Honeycutt shared, “I believe you can flip a kid on any given day in one hour.” Can self-publishing change everything? We’re not here to teach, we’re here to change lives. Teachers want to help students improve. You can add Google Drive to Microsoft Office now. How can we improve our lessons? Sketchnoting is big. Annotation, reflection, research! I love how the kids are inspired to be curious and investigate. We don’t just need genius hour. For more on Sketchnoting: How do you fill your students with wonder?

101 Killer Open Courseware Projects from Around the World: Ivy League and Beyond | The .Edu Toolbox How will you obtain a higher education? Some major headlines in 2009 already play on the fears about how to pay for a higher education. Press releases from colleges want to quell those fears about monies for college, and politicians have introduced legislation to make education more affordable. The desire to lure students into college is strong across the globe, and many colleges have learned that education no longer belongs to a select few who can afford a degree. The following list of 100 open courseware projects are designed to offer readers access to supplementary materials for education. The list, which also includes a few open source libraries (for textbooks) and some directories (for open source courses only) to expand your tool base, is alphabetized, as each resource offers more than one category; however, a few resources do specialize in one genre.

Practical Physics | IOPSpark Nuffield Foundation & Institute of Physics Practical Physics is a collection of experiments that demonstrate a wide range of physical concepts and processes. These resources are for the use of teachers of physics in schools and colleges. Some of the experiments can be used as starting-points for investigations or for enhancement activities. Most resources have been migrated over to this website - IOPSpark - from but if you find any mistakes or missing content, please let us know via Why use practical work in physics? Physics is a practical science. Practical Physics is part of a group of projects that include Practical Chemistry and Practical Biology. Astronomy The following collections of astronomy experiments show how science explanations can be built from careful and systematic observations. Atoms and nuclei Through the following collections of experiments in this topic, students can develop their own ideas of what is inside an atom. Electromagnetism

NOS Overview: STEM-Ready ENSI Lessons ENSI Lessons That Meet STEM, NGSS, and CCSS Click Here for PDF of this page Several of the ENSI lessons contain elements appropriate for STEM teaching (Science, Technology, Engineering and Math), as well as NGSS and CCS (Common Core Standards). They deal with scientific argumentation, scientific creativity, functional design, applications of math, and some with the potential for reverse engineering and competitive engineering. Others use molecular data obtained from online data banks; one of these is actually a tutorial so students can find and download desired online data, and use online tools for processing data. For desired lessons, go to the NOS (Nature of Science) index, or the Evolution index, as appropriate. A. B. C. D. E. F. G.

English Literature The English Literature Major is designed to cultivate a broad knowledge of the evolution of cultural and literary expression in English as well as an ability to critically engage with texts of all media. In pursuit of these goals, you will be required to take ENGL101 through ENGL301, a progression that will afford you a working knowledge of the general evolution of literature in English from its Medieval origins to the present. The core program will also familiarize you with the tools and terminology that English Literature scholars have devised in order to facilitate the study and discussion of literature, from Marxist literary theory to poetry scansion techniques. You will also be required to take four 400-level electives. To fulfill the requirements for this major, you must complete the core program (6 courses) as well as 4 electives of your choice (4 courses) for a total of 10 courses. If you would like to complete a Minor in this area of study, please click here.

Statistical and Thermal Physics Welcome to Statistical and Thermal Physics, a collection of information and resources for teachers of Statistical and Thermal Physics. The resources in this collection are supplements to standard Statistical and Thermal Physics textbooks and include student activities, background information, and applications. New users may create an account to personalize their use of the Statistical and Thermal Physics web site. STP Materials The elusive chemical potential This article provides three "meanings" for the chemical potential and gives two applications to illustrate the chemical potential in action. STP Ising 1D Program The STP 1D Ising program is a Monte Carlo simulation of a one-dimensional Ising model in equilibrium with a heat bath at temperature T using the Metropolis algorithm.

PhysicsLAB: Converging Lenses Any lens that is "thicker in the center" than on the edges is generally described as a convex lens and will function as a converging lens when it is operating in air. The point where all rays which enter the lens parallel to its axis are brought to a focus is called the principal focus. This position is located behind the lens and is usually labeled as F in ray diagrams. Whenever the actual rays of light that refract through the lens converge behind the lens to form an image, that type of image is called a real image. Since the actual rays of light passing through the lens form these real images, they are also known as "hot" images. Converging Lenses There are three primary rays which are used to locate the images formed by converging lenses. Remember, ALL rays must have ARROWS! When the physlet opens notice that the author has listed for you the initial focal length, object distance and image distance.

Welcome to a Resource for Physics Teachers | Physics & Physical Science Demos, Labs, & Projects for High School Teachers This site is designed to help physics teachers share their ideas. 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. The school I teach in is new. 2006/2007 was the first year there was a 12th grade. I’m looking for contributors, even if it’s one or two postings. – Scott Like this: Like Loading...
