STEM Behind Hollywood by Texas Instruments

STEM Behind Hollywood by Texas Instruments
Scientists and experts who consult on Hollywood films and TV worked alongside leading math and science educators to create free classroom activities for TI-Nspire CX™ handhelds, TI-Nspire™ Teacher and Student Software, and TI-Nspire™ Apps for iPad. These activities center around the math and science behind Hollywood themes like zombies, superheroes, space and forensics, and they give students the chance to solve problems just like real-life scientists using the concepts behind their favorite movies and TV shows. TI’s STEM education advocate Her role as one of TV’s most endearing nerds — Amy Farrah Fowler on The Big Bang Theory — is hardly a stretch for TI’s brand ambassador, the Emmy-nominated actress Mayim Bialik. “STEM Behind Hollywood introduces students to what it looks and feels like to be a scientist. Like her Big Bang Theory character, Mayim holds a Ph.D. in neuroscience, is fluent in the language of science and understands its critical concepts inside and out.

Great Tools To Teach about Human Body in 3D Technology has radically transformed the way education is being delivered. It has also revolutionized the way students learn and created new learning styles that never existed before ( mobile learning, flipped learning, virtual learning, simulated learning, to mention but some ). Much of the human knowledge is now online and anyone with the right tools can access and use it .This democratization of knowledge has definitely improved the quality of education and increased the rates of all kinds of literacies from the digital literacy to the critical one. One of the best examples of how technology revolutionized education is manifested in the field of biology and science. There are now several web tools to help teachers carry out those " dirty " experiments that used to be done in labs now they can be done virtually and in a simulated environment way better than the real one. 1- Zygote Body 2- Med Tropolis 3- Get Body Smart 4- Inner Body 5- Body Maps 6- The Biodigital Human

Free Science Experiments - Experiment of the Week Archives Below we have a list of fun and educational science experiments that can be conducted in the classroom or at home. Most will use simple to find household items. Always be sure to read through experiments completely prior to trying them. Many of these experiments should have adult supervision. - Try to understand how inertia effects a candle flame. - In this experiment, you will see the effects Bernoulli's Principle on resisting gravity. - An explaination of why we get Brain Freeze when we eat cold things like ice cream. - In this experiment, we use red cabbage juice as a Acid/Base indicator. - This fun activity will explore the pull of gravity, as you race it to catch falling coins. - An experiment that shows how heat and cold effect air molecules and resulting air pressure. - Explore how vibration creates sound using a simple comb and wax paper. - What causes the sound when people crack their knuckles? - Ever place a rug on carpet, only to have it move out-of-place over time?

Mrs. Deringer - Life - Scientific Method Here are the Steps to the Scientific Method Problem: Is the question you are trying to solve. It is always written as a QUESTION and therefore ends with a question mark. (?) Background Information: Collect information about the question. Conduct research. This will help you make a hypothesis. Hypothesis: An educated guess, you have made according to the background information you have collected through research. Materials: All the supplies you need to set up the experiment. Procedure: The steps you will follow to complete the experiment. Independent variable: The one thing that you are testing. Constants: All the things that you keep the same between the experimental and control group. Observations: The information you collect by conducting the experiment. Conclusion:A possible answer to the problem.

Expeditions to the Seafloor Physics teacher Newton's laws are difficult both for teachers and students at all levels. 1–3 This is still the case despite a long history of critique of the laws as presented in the classroom. For example, more than 50 years ago Eisenbud 4 and Weinstock 5 proposed reformulations of the laws that put them on a sounder, more logically consistent base than is presented in many textbooks without resorting to “intuitional or anthropomorphic contrivances.” 5 In 1990, Arnold Arons 6 wrote that “the Law of Inertia and the concept of force have, historically, been two of the most formidable stumbling blocks for students.” One might imagine, therefore, that by 2012 remedial strategies would have resolved these difficulties, but there is little evidence that the problem has been satisfactorily addressed.
