Secret Worlds: The Universe Within - Interactive Java Tutorial Secret Worlds: The Universe Within View the Milky Way at 10 million light years from the Earth. Then move through space towards the Earth in successive orders of magnitude until you reach a tall oak tree just outside the buildings of the National High Magnetic Field Laboratory in Tallahassee, Florida. After that, begin to move from the actual size of a leaf into a microscopic world that reveals leaf cell walls, the cell nucleus, chromatin, DNA and finally, into the subatomic universe of electrons and protons. Once the tutorial has completely downloaded, a set of the arrows will appear that allow the user to increase or decrease the view magnitude in Manual mode.
Teaching materials Teaching materials Evolution is essential to our curriculum and to scientific literacy. Imagine teaching social science without teaching history; students would lack perspective on events going on today. Similarly, to understand the big picture of biology, students need to understand life on Earth in terms of its history and its future — the changing life forms and ecosystems that have arisen and changed over billions of years, as well as the mechanisms that have brought about those changes. The Understanding Evolution project aims to help instructors develop student understanding of: We've assembled a variety of resources to help you increase student understanding of evolution.
Science Writer - Help with Lab Reports Welcome to CAST Science Writer, the tool that supports students in writing lab and class reports. This tool is geared toward middle school and high school students. Check out the supports and help available in Science Writer described below. Making cross curricular links Primary schools should strive to make goodquality crosscurricular links whilst maintaining the distinctive nature of subjects such as D&T... One of the main purposes of Sir Jim Rose’s proposals for a new primary curriculum in England was to encourage schools to make more cross-curricular links. Of course, these proposals will now not become statutory, with the current subject-based National Curriculum remaining in force until the end of July 2012.
Science Matters Yah, I know some of us are winding down from schooling for the summer months, but I can’t help but stay on the lookout for resources I know I’m going to be needing again all too soon. I’ve come across some interesting science things of late that I want to check out – perhaps you, too, can find something useful. For your perusal: Free Online Textbooks and Curriculum Chemistry Packets: 13 units of chemistry; also has links to YouTube chemistry videos Classic Science Life: free life science e-textbook to download; either download by chapter (there are 36) or by unit (9 units); online courses also offered
Immersive Learning Simulations ForgeFX has been a proud content development partner for Pearson Education for over 10 years. Developing over 100 simulation-based training programs and applications, across a number of different subjects and curricula, ForgeFX helps Pearson Education deliver digital learning products that transform students from passive audience members, to active participants in the learning process. 3D Wave Simulator This real-time 3D wave simulator demonstrates the connection between wind speed and ocean particle motion depth. The application helps students visualize how waves are the forward movement of water, due to the oscillation of water particles by the frictional drag of wind over the surface. Water motion simulator helps students visualize how ocean waves work.
How the Moon Affects the Date of Easter Friday (April 6) brings us the first full moon of the new spring season. The official moment that the moon turns full is 19:19 UT, or 3:19 p.m. EDT. Lawrence Hall of Science - 24/7 Science How fast does the wind blow? What makes things sticky? Where do insects live and plants grow? What is the best way to clean up the environment?
ClassicScienceLife Mr.Q's LabNotes is a free monthly newsletter which provides lessons and insights as to new developments in Mr.Q's world. Free is good. Free is our friend! Check out the Blog of Mr.Q for new ways to supplement the Classic Science curriculum at home! The Human Brain Project Blue Brain’s success in modeling the rat cortical column has driven the development of the Brain Simulation Facility and has demonstrated the feasibility of the project’s general strategy. But, this is only a first step. The human brain is an immensely powerful, energy efficient, self-learning, self-repairing computer. If we could understand and mimic the way it works, we could revolutionize information technology, medicine and society.
The Thinking Classroom: Ways of Thinking Effective thinking-centered instruction aims to achieve two educational objectives: To cultivate the active use of knowledge, and To help students become self-regulated learners. Toward that end, this section of The Thinking Classroom highlights four thinking-centered approaches for infusing high-level thinking instruction into your regular curriculum. The Ways of Teaching Thinking region features a preview and description of each of the approaches. Science Resource Page Welcome to the new themed science area! Science is a curriculum requirement but many concepts can be difficult for children to understand. I have produced a large number of items that link to many science topics covered in Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. Click on the links below to visit a themed science area or visit the Fact Sheet sections. Please click on the next two buttons for mini workbooks on the topics below. You can also download presentations about the following scientific topics: Magnets, Basic Circuits, Food Groups, Condensation and Evaporation
