Earth: The Lucky Planet? April 10, 2014 Despite estimates that there are trillions of planets in the universe, one scientist argues that we are effectively alone. The Science of Self April 02, 2014 Jennifer Ouellette, author of the new book "Me, Myself, and Why: Searching for the Science of Self," shares how physics and neurobiology intersect over the idea of emergence. Beating the Game of Go March 26, 2014 Chess masters have been beaten by computers, but machines still can't beat the best Go players. Nonetheless, mathematicians are working to perfect the art and science behind this classic game. Podcast Archive

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. Math, Physics, and Engineering Applets Oscillations and Waves Acoustics Signal Processing Electricity and Magnetism: Statics Electrodynamics Quantum Entanglement and Information (Stanford Encyclopedia of Philosophy) - StumbleUpon First published Mon Aug 13, 2001; substantive revision Thu Aug 26, 2010 Quantum entanglement is a physical resource, like energy, associated with the peculiar nonclassical correlations that are possible between separated quantum systems. Entanglement can be measured, transformed, and purified.

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. The animations are sorted by category, and the file size of each animation is included in the listing. Also included is the minimum version of the Flash player that is required; the player is available free from The categories are: In addition, I have prepared a small tutorial in using Flash to do Physics animations. A Science Teacher Shares Tech Resources For Teachers, Parents & Students I teach Middle School Science, mainly physical, environmental, and life to 6th and 8th graders. Through grants I have acquired 14 iPads for my students to use everyday. Students are also welcome to use their own handheld devices or smartphones. For those who have no devices or technology of their own I also have enough iMacs and Netbooks to create a 1:1 environment of student to technology. Science is a subject where I can easily integrate technology to help my students learn and demonstrate learning of all the topics that we study.

How this is accomplished is usually not explained in detail, but the general idea seems to be that the original object is scanned in such a way as to extract all the information from it, then this information is transmitted to the receiving location and used to construct the replica, not necessarily from the actual material of the original, but perhaps from atoms of the same kinds, arranged in exactly the same pattern as the original. A teleportation machine would be like a fax machine, except that it would work on 3-dimensional objects as well as documents, it would produce an exact copy rather than an approximate facsimile, and it would destroy the original in the process of scanning it.

50 Awesome Chemistry Videos For The Busy Science Teacher Though we don’t often recognize it, chemistry defines nearly every element of our everyday lives. From the reactions that fuel the sun to the biology of our bodies to the technology in our gadgets, chemistry is at the heart of everything we do and is the central science that unites biology, physics, geology, astronomy, medicine, and countless other fields. Yet chemistry doesn’t always get the credit and recognition it deserves for playing such an awesome role in, well, everything.

Free Online Physics Courses Get free online Physics courses online from the world's leading universities. You can download these audio & video courses straight to your computer or mp3 player. The collection includes introductory physics courses recorded at top universities (e.g. The History of the Universe in 200 Words or Less - StumbleUpon Quantum fluctuation. Inflation. Expansion. Strong nuclear interaction. Hands-on Activities for Teaching Biology to High School or Middle School Students by Drs. Ingrid Waldron and Jennifer Doherty, University of Pennsylvania The expression "hands-on, minds-on" summarizes the philosophy we have incorporated in these activities - namely, that students will learn best if they are actively engaged and if their activities are closely linked to understanding important biological concepts. Many of our activities are explicitly aligned with the Next Generation Science Standards, as indicated by (NGSS) in the descriptions below and the links to the right. Additional information is provided in Summary Tables and in the Teacher Preparation Notes for these activities.

Science Xplained Science Xplained is a collection of video podcasts that tell the stories of the science behind everyday topics. Dr. Ainissa G. Ramirez, self-proclaimed science evangelist and associate professor of mechanical engineering and materials science at Yale University, is the dynamic host of the series.
