Those may be easily copied and pasted back into Word for making any changes desired. However, some of the files don't translate back into Word that well. Physics Flash Animations We have been increasingly using Flash animations for illustrating Physics content. This page provides access to those animations which may be of general interest. The animations will appear in a separate window. Five Math Tools for the BYOD Classroom - TechNotes Blog - TCEA Between lesson planning, parent conferences, and grading homework, you may find that you have little time (or energy) left over to look for great tools to help you teach math in your BYOD classroom. Don’t fret! I’ve pulled together five of my favorites that you might like to try. National Library of Virtual Manipulatives Manipulatives are great to use when it comes to helping students bridge concrete concepts into more abstract reasoning.
OSP EJS Modeling Overview » home » EJS Modeling » Overview Overview This search engine specifically targets Simulations Courses in simulation and computation have become widespread in physics and are increasing in the other sciences. In addition, many traditional science courses now have computational components, as more and more faculty become convinced of the importance for every science graduate to be 'computer-literate'. An area of particular interest in this respect is that of computer modeling. Rigs of Rods - Rigs of Rods Rigs of Rods is an open source simulator for soft-body physics What makes Rigs of Rods different to most simulators is its unique soft-body physics simulation: Objects are simulated in real-time as flexible soft-body objects, resulting in a very realistic simulation which entirely depends on the physical construction of the object. The community contributes greatly to the game, giving it a vast selection of vehicles and terrains from which you can choose. Rigs of Rods is mostly used for simulating vehicles but it is flexible enough to be suited for other tasks as well.
Rising Sea Levels: Causes and Solutions The 20th anniversary of Earth Day in 1990 was momentous for me for a simple reason: My second book, Saving the Earth, A Citizen’s Guide to Environmental Action, was published on that day. It was one of a handful of books that came out that spring—including Bill McKibben’s groundbreaking End of Nature—that attempted to draw attention to a handful of environmental concerns that we all saw at the time as being grave, though not very well understood. Climate change was one of those concerns.

I teach Math-7 and Math-8 to English language learners, and I also teach another mainstream Math-8 class. My English language learners (ELLs) are very new to the United States, mostly from Central America. They speak very little, if any English, and many do not have strong educational backgrounds.
