States of Matter By Richard Pommier Swanson Posted 01.08.08 NOVA Water is the only substance on Earth that occurs naturally as a solid, liquid, and gas. But scientists can artificially transform substances that occur naturally in only one or two forms of matter into other forms. In this interactive, adjust the temperature and pressure of three common substances and watch them morph into different states of matter. Launch Interactive In this interactive, adjust temperature and pressure, and watch gases become liquids, liquids become solids, and more. This feature originally appeared on the site for the NOVA program Absolute Zero. Richard Pommier Swanson is the former Science Content Director for PBS's DragonflyTV.

She has a great list of app recommendations for the young scientists in our lives. Mariah asked me to put together a post on science apps available for children. Here are my top science finds for little ones ages four and above: Planets – This application, which is universal, therefore available for both iPhone and iPad, is very clever. Make sure to check out Rebecca’s other app recommendations in the posts below (click on the photo)… The name Thirteen Red Shoes came about a few years ago when Rebecca needed a business name quickly for some tutoring she was doing. Know someone else who would enjoy this activity?
Resources for Teaching Chemistry Hands-On Chemistry Activities with Real-Life Applications Hands-On Chemistry Activities With Real-Life Applications contains over 300 intriguing investigations designed to engage students in a genuine pursuit of science. Because of the favorable response to Hands-On Physics Activities, the authors used the same approach and philosophy in writing this resource. This hands-on, inquiry-based approach to teaching and learning science follows recommendations set forth in the National Academy of Sciences' National Science Education Standards and the National Science Teachers Association's Scope Sequence and Coordination Project.

Study Prof | Study Smarter | Not Harder Who is smarter… LeBron James, basketball supah-star OR Neil deGrasse Tyson, astro-geek? Greg Phelps, water wunderkind OR philosophy-phenom, Martha Nussbaum?* Maybe a better question is; who is better able to use the brains they have? Granted, the uber-athlete is not going to be able to compete head-to-head with the mental-mighty-man in a straight-up brain battle. Your brain is a part of your body. As a society, we often think the athlete isn’t overly burdened with brains and the genius is better off sticking to the chess board rather than the diving board. But consider this; world-class athletes are careful about anything that impacts their performance. The brainiac may indeed perform better in the classroom than on the tennis court, but could it be that she would perform even better in the classroom if she spent more time on the tennis court?

NORDLAB.SE - Institutionen för didaktik och pedagogisk profession, IDPP, Göteborgs universitet NORDLAB-SE är en äldre rapportserie med material som fortfarande är användbart. Den behandlar, i form av ett antal 'workshops', några aspekter av naturvetenskap. Ett genomgående drag är att de tar upp forskningsresultat angående elevers vardagsföreställningar om naturvetenskapliga företeelser. Vissa av rapporterna i NORDLAB-SE ingår även i rapportserien Ämnesdidaktik i praktiken. Ladda ner rapporterna som pdf-filer Inom detta tema behandlas växelspelet mellan teori och observationer, liksom att välja lämpliga system och att genomföra kontrollerade experiment. Det är elevernas möjligheter att förstå skolkursernas naturvetenskapliga innehåll som står i fokus för detta tema. I detta tema ingår frågor om natur och moral och hur elever uppfattarvissa miljöproblem ur både natur- och samhällsperspektiv.
Harvard STEM Teaching Videos Posted on May 28th, 2013 by Mary Lord Looking for a way to make probability come to life in your multicultural math class and assess which students “got it?” How about a fun activity that gives high-school students a hands-on feel for fundamental calculus concepts and also meets state content standards? The Harvard-Smithsonian Center for for Astrophysics has compiled a digital video library full of curriculum-enhancing lessons, assessment tools, and case studies - all developed and used by teachers in their classrooms. These “Videos to Enhance Understanding and Teaching of K-12 Learning Goals,” as the project is called, feature: • Clinical Interviews of Student Ideas • Demonstrations of Phenomena • Case Studies of Instruction or Research • Interviews with Experts • Correlations to state and national curriculum standards Clips can be searched for in a variety of ways. The collection of 1,017 movies includes a range of topics. Among the “What’s the Point?”
