Popplet Lesson: Free Shot Physics Basketball not only can be exciting to play or to watch–especially this time of year, when the NCAA college hoops championship known as March Madness tips off. It packs a lot of math and science in each move. In this lesson, developed by Talking Science, a partner of NPR’s Science Friday initiative, together with John Fontanella, a physicist at the U.S. Extra credit: Have students calculate the percentage of field goals or free throws their favorite teams completes in this year’s Big Dance. Want to engineer the perfect free throw? Grade Level: 6th – 8th grade Subject Matter: Physical Science, mathematics National Standards: NS.5-8.1, NS.5-8.2 Science as Inquiry: As a result of their activities in grades 5 – 8, students should develop understanding and the abilities necessary to do scientific inquiry. Physical Science: As a result of their activities in grades 5 -8, students should develop an understanding of the properties and changes of properties in matter, and of motions and forces.

Padlet Tutorial Tesla Town teaches students about electricity system | Information Trust Institute From nuclear power plants to solar powered homes, TCIPG’s free new iPad app, Tesla Town, allows young students to explore and learn about different energy sources used for electricity production today. “Most people don’t have a lot of information about where electricity comes from,” said Jana Sebestik, Assistant Director of STEM Curriculum Design for the Office for Mathematics, Science and Technology Education (MSTE) and co-creator of the app. “One of our goals is just to educate people about the various sources.” The Trustworthy Cyber Infrastructure for the Power Grid (TCIPG), a multi-university center administered by Illinois' Information Trust Institute, worked with Sebestik and MSTE to create this interactive application. The app includes realistic, interactive illustrations of how electricity is produced, such as burning coal to create steam or controlling water flow through a dam. “People see these structures in our cities, but they might not know what they are,” Sebestik said.
