This item is Part 1 of a two-part experiential learning activity for beginning physics students relating to the universal law of gravitation. This scenario involves Spacecraft Galilei, which is orbiting Iris, a planet with a smaller radius and lower mass than Earth. Students must determine the acceleration at orbital height and the force exerted on Galilei in orbit. They will then calculate the gravitational acceleration on the surface of the planet, the force exerted by the planet on a measuring instrument, and the time it takes for that instrument to fall to the planet’s surface. <i>Allow two hours</i> In keeping with Problem-Based Learning (PBL) pedagogy, students will separate useful from irrelevant data, then collaborate to apply physics in finding solutions. This resource includes a printable student manual and links to background information on the Problem-Based Learning (PBL) instructional method. Registered users may also access a teacher's guide. <b>SEE RELATED ITEMS ON THIS PAGE</B> for a link to Part 2 of this problem.

This item is a PBL (Problem-Based Learning) activity for introductory physics relating to conservation of momentum, frictional force, and kinetic energy. This scenario involves a car crash in which a small car is struck broadside by a vehicle of more than double its mass. Students have the task of determining whether either driver engaged in reckless driving. To solve the problem, students work cooperatively to determine the coefficient of friction on the roadway, velocity of each vehicle at the time of the crash, and velocity of the vehicles prior to braking. They will use a combination of strategies: Work-Energy Theorem and kinematic equations. PBL is an instructional method designed to strengthen student competency in reasoning and problem-solving. The activities mirror real scenarios encountered by practicing scientists and engineers. Learners sift through information to separate useful from irrelevant data, locate missing information on their own, and then apply physics in finding solutions. This resource includes a printable student manual and a password-protected teacher's guide with solutions and tips for instructors.

This item is a standards-based lesson plan for grades 6-8 on light and the electromagnetic spectrum. It provides an "e-worksheet" for student use as they explore a 3-part interactive web site. The first exploration introduces them the idea that all light travels as waves, and that wavelength defines the various regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. The second takes them through each band of the spectrum, with a focus on visible light. In the third investigation, users do simple calculations relating to wavelength and amplitude. Included procedures to seamlessly incorporate hands-on activities with Slinky toys and prisms to augment the interactive web materials. Assessments with answer keys are also provided. <i>Allow two days with a third day for review.</i> This item is part of a larger collection of lessons, all of which are aligned with specific AAAS Benchmarks for Scientific Literacy.

Unidata is a community, consisting mostly of educators and researchers, which provides "data, tools, and community leadership for enhanced Earth-system education and research." In this section of the website, Unidata members suggest some of their favorite K-12 websites that educators can use to teach about weather. Along with each website link is a short description of the resource. Some websites are described as offering multimedia instructional resources and weather data, while others offer instructional modules or lesson ideas. SkyMath, for example, was developed in 1996 by Unidata and offers a free module that uses "everyday atmospheric science issues to teach math according to the national standards."

Where previously in Part 1 we covered the basics of program design and analysis and the usefulness of design patterns, in this part in this series of articles we develop models for programs that are more general than source code. Why not use the source code directly? First, there are many different types of source code - assembly languages, C code, and so on - but we can use a single model to describe all of them. Second, once we have such a model, we can perform many useful analyzes on the model more easily than we could on the source code.

In order to advance a shared scientific understanding of the ocean's carbon cycle and how it continues to change over time, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) continues to investigate the evolving state of the ocean carbon chemistry with high quality measurements on ships and autonomous platforms. This website provides information on their public outreach efforts, along with news features on how these changes may affect everything from marine animal populations to tourism operations. On the homepage, visitors should check out the "Map & Data Viewer", which allows them to look at the collected carbon data via a 3D projection. The site also contains a "Data Portal" which allows interested parties to examine the data that has been collected thus far, along with historical data sets. The site is rounded out by sections that cover their ongoing research projects and their current observations on these changes.

This file includes the lab manual write-up for the Au nanosphere and nanorod photoabsorption and scattering Lab experiment for the 2nd year Experimental Contemporary Physics Lab Course. In addition, several handouts are provided along with some additional information for instructors. This work was supported in part by by NSF Awards: ECCS #0701703, DMR #0707740 & DMR #1105121. The experiment can readily be upgraded to an advanced lab by giving more responsibility to the students for lab setup (give them an optical breadboard and parts) and by asking for more in-depth analysis and questions which require more knowledge and experimental skills to answer.

Kepler is a spaceborne telescope specifically designed to survey our region of the Milky Way galaxy to detect and characterize hundreds of Earth-size and smaller planets in or near the habitable zone. The habitable zone encompasses the distances from a star where liquid water can exist on a planet's surface.
