Climate change What causes climate change? Just as the world’s most respected scientific bodies have confirmed that the Earth is getting hotter, they have also stated that there is strong evidence that humans are driving the warming (2). Scientists agree the main cause of climate change is human activities which magnify the ‘greenhouse effect’ – a natural process in which gases in the atmosphere warm the Earth by trapping heat that is radiating towards space (2) (4). A layer of greenhouse gases, including water vapour and smaller amounts of carbon dioxide, methane and nitrous oxide, act as a thermal blanket surrounding the Earth. This absorbs heat and warms the surface to a life-supporting average of 15°C. As energy slowly escapes out of our atmosphere, some of it is absorbed by the greenhouses gases, which warms the Earth further.

Combine digital content and your files to create a lesson New Common Core Math Missions Launch on Khan Academy - Getting Smart by Alison Anderson - CCSS, CUE14, Khan Academy, mathchat, Online Learning On the keynote stage in Palm Springs, CA for this year’s CUE conference, Sal Khan announced a brand new launch for US students this afternoon. Khan Academy is an organization committed to helping teachers and students by continually working to provide every student a personalized learning experience. This year it became clear that it was time to offer a Common Core Resource that both students and teachers could rely on in order to transition smoothly and successfully to these state standards without giving up the idea of personalized learning. The Khan team basically saw two options for developing this sort of resource: retroactively linking all their current resources to the most appropriate common core standard or go ahead and create a entire new library of content and learning objects, specifically to illustrate the Common Core standards. The content is designed by math educators who chose to submit their own examples of problems they created to teach certain standards.
Practice and Training Tests The Smarter Balanced Practice Test (updated in May 2014) and the Training Test (released in February 2014) provide students with an early look at sets of assessment questions aligned to the Common Core for grades 3-8 and 11 in both English language arts/literacy and mathematics. Both resources will help teachers and students prepare for the Smarter Balanced Assessments. Practice Tests The Smarter Balanced Practice Test allows teachers, students, parents, and other interested parties to experience a full grade-level assessment and gain insight into how Smarter Balanced will assess students’ mastery of the Common Core. The Practice Tests mirror the year-end assessment.
