In this word problem worksheet, algebra learners solve 10 distance problems. Problems include motion in different directions, the same direction, and round trips.  
Middle schoolers identify and describe transition metals. They discuss alloys and their benefits. Students research one common, alloy, its composition, properties, and uses. They are asked for some common properties of most transition metals. Middle schoolers identify the material used to make the aircraft carrier in the video.
Students explore and experiment with a durable form of ice called Pykrete. They test the properties of Pykrete and ice to determine if the claims about this mixture are true from their history around World War II. The lab report includes a heading, problem statement, procedure, data, calculations, sources of error and conclusions.
In this word problem worksheet, students solve twelve various distance, rate, time word problems.  The solutions are provided.
Middle schoolers identify and describe transition metals.  In this periodic table instructional activity students research a common alloy and report its composition, properties and uses. 
Students discover the properties of matter and how they change when composite materials are produced.  In this informative lesson students write up a question and procedure to an experiment then analyze and draw conclusions based on the resulting data. 
After reading about marine engineers and naval architects, it's all hands on deck to design and test a speed boat. This lesson is designed for the Next Generation Science Standards in engineering and can be a centerpiece for a STEM lesson or a physical science unit on kinetic and potential energy and Newton's laws of motion.
You will need to prepare either a class set or a single demonstration catapult in order to teach this powerful lesson on kinetic and potential energy. Activity sheets are provided to walk learners through the construction of a catapult. If you choose to teach via demonstration, you can jump straight to Activity Sheet 3, on which is a data table for recording distances. Different features of the catapult are varied for comparison. A vocabulary list and challenge questions are provided.
