Radioactive Decay: A Sweet Simulation of a Half-life PiccoloNamek [GFDL or CC-BY-SA-3.0], via Wikimedia Commons Purpose To demonstrate that the rates of decay of unstable nuclei can be measured, that the exact time that a certain nucleus will decay cannot be predicted, and that it takes a very large number of nuclei to find the rate of decay. Context This is the second lesson in a three-lesson series about isotopes, radioactive decay, and the nucleus. The first lesson, Isotopes of Pennies, introduces the idea of isotopes. To do this lesson and understand half-life and rates of radioactive decay, students should understand ratios and the multiplication of fractions, and be somewhat comfortable with probability. In this lesson, students will be asked to simulate radioactive decay by pouring small candies, such as plain M&M's® or Skittles®, from a cup and counting which candies fall with their manufacturer's mark down or up. This lesson can be done in two, 45-minute class periods. Planning Ahead Motivation Development Ask students: Assessment

How to Find Websites and Domains owned by a Person? Learn how you can find the other websites (or domain names) that are owned by some person using online lookup tools. Say you are on a website and would like to know which other web domains are owned by the same person who owns that website. Is it possible? Yes there are some easy workarounds (and tools) that can help you find domains owned by an individual or a company though you may not be successful on every hunt. Let’s give it a try! Step 1: Reverse Whois Lookups with Google When you register a web domain, your name, contact address, phone number and other details are stored with the domain in a public registry database that anyone can access online using a Whois Lookup tool. Go to and enter the domain name that you are trying to research. "PHONE_NUMBER" "STREET_ADDRESS" Replace Phone Number or Street Address in the above search queries with the actual data from the whois database. /adsense=1234 Step 4.

CK-12 People's Physics Concepts 1. Units and Problem Solving Units identify what a specific number refers to. Keeping track of units can help you avoid mistakes when you work out problems. 2. One dimensional motion describes objects moving in straight lines. 3. This chapter discusses parabolic and projectile motion, acceleration, and velocity. 4. In this chapter, we explore forces and Newton's laws. 5. Forces which cause objects to turn around continuously in a circle are known as centripetal forces. 6. Isaac Newton in a triumph of brilliance declared that there is one law of physics that governs motion and he unified “earthly” bodies and “heavenly” bodies with the The Universal Law of Gravitation. 7. The total amount of motion in the universe is constant. 8. When any two bodies in the universe interact, they can exchange energy, momentum, or both. 9. The third conservation law is conservation of angular momentum. 10. The development of devices to measure time, like the pendulum, led to the analysis of periodic motion.

Exploratorium: the museum of science, art and human perception Pendulum Lesson Plans Reviewed by Teachers Why Select Other Criteria? Sometimes you only have 45 minutes to review participles before Tuesday's assembly, or you need curriculum you know was reviewed after a certain date. Duration: If curriculum authors indicate how long it takes to implement a resource, i.e. a 30-minute vocabulary exercise, a three-day science experiment, or a two-week expository writing project, we note it for you. If not, our teacher reviewers may indicate an estimated amount of time it would take. When you select a duration in this box, you'll see only resources with that stated duration. Resource reviews that do not include a duration will be excluded from the list. Reviewed After: Limit the resources you see to those reviewed since the date you choose by clicking the box and making a selection.
