14 YouTube Math Channels February 10, 2014 Since the posting of "20 Great Math Websites for Teachers and Students", I have received some requests from math teachers asking for websites that provide quality math videos. Upon checking my archive and some other online resources, I deemed it necessary to compile this list of Math YouTube channels to share with you. These are basically channels where you can have access to a wide variety of math videos and tutorials to help your students with Math. I have included only what I believe are the best Math channels out there. Cell Models For life all cells have basic needs. Cells have diverged in their structure and function to accommodate these survival requirements. Here are some KEY TERMS to help you think, explore and search for similarities and significant differences that have become the characteristics of eukaryote (animal, plant) and prokaryotic (bacteria) cells. Examples might be searching: eukaryote prokaryote reproduction or animal plant cell energy. Reproduction / cell division Energy trapping, storage and consumption Form / shape / structure Cell specialization Compartmentalization of cell functions Communication within and beyond the cell Cell / organism survival

District 203 to make elemental shift in science The science curriculum at all Naperville District 203 schools will be evolving in the upcoming years because of the new Next Generation Science Standards. A team of administrators and teachers has outlined for the District 203 School Board the team’s efforts to bring the district’s science curriculum from kindergarten through high school in alignment with the standards that were adopted by the Illinois State Board of Education earlier this year. The district already has implemented the Common Core State Standards for English/language arts and mathematics. The science standards, which are aligned to Common Core, is an effort by 26 states to encourage more students to pursue careers in science, technology, engineering and mathematics. Jennifer Donatelli, a project manager in Learning Services who is a part of the curriculum team, said the new standards incorporate more engineering and technology design into science education.

Jefferson Lab Science Series - Science Series Video Archive Couldn't make it to the last Science Series lecture? Did you like a lecture so much that you just had to see it again? Not to worry! Past lectures are now available on demand! Building Blocks of Matter World's Strangest Natural Wonders Ever played the game of Twister on water? The green, yellow, and brown polka dots that form on British Columbia’s Spotted Lake each summer make it look like you could. It’s a far cry from the stereotypical landscapes of clear blue lakes, rolling green hills, and white-sand beaches that inspire most travelers—and that’s part of what makes strange natural wonders like Spotted Lake so thrilling. A recently discovered cave that grows crystals the size of four-story buildings, a lake the color of a strawberry milkshake, and a glacier that seems to bleed sound like they’re from another planet, but can be seen right here on earth, and they remind us that there’s plenty of mystery left to explore. For billions of years, our planet has been a work in progress.

The 25 Must Have Resources for Science Teachers Here is what I have been preparing for you over this weekend. Below is a list featuring some great resources for science teachers.

The Sourcebook for Teaching Science The Sourcebook for Teaching Science – Strategies, Activities, and Instructional Resources, provides new and experienced teachers a wealth of teaching strategies, resources, lessons, activities, and ideas to enhance the teaching and learning of physics, chemistry, biology, and the earth and space sciences. Resources are based on learning theory, and are designed to stimulate student interest and involvement. As students engage in the activities of this book, they develop higher order reasoning skills, and a deeper understanding of scientific concepts and their relevance to their everyday life. The Sourcebook for Teaching Science is designed to complement any secondary school science curriculum. Science teachers will find ready-to-use demonstrations, experiments, illustrations, games, puzzles, analogies, lessons, activities, and strategies, as well as explanations of how to adapt these for English learners and diverse student populations.

Annie Easley helped make modern spaceflight possible To celebrate Black History Month, Engadget is running a series of profiles honoring African-American pioneers in the world of science and technology. Today we take a look at the life and work of Annie Easley. Few people are brilliant enough to be a computer programmer or a mathematician. Even fewer can add "rocket scientist for NASA" to their resume.
