High schoolers observe linear motion using a bouncing ball. They use motion detectors and graphing calculators to graph the motion of a bouncing ball, compare calculations with experimental results, and fit your data using the quadratic equation.
Robots and the disabled
Students explore and investigate how robots can assist disabled human beings. They participate in an online tutorial guiding them through the world of robots and the disabled. Conclusions are drawn and many discussions arise from what they have viewed online.
Introduction to Slope
Students assess an applet on the internet to measure the slope of a line. They follow a precise set of instructions to complete their task involving a set of coordinate axes and a graph. A variety of questions are asked at the end of the lesson to be answered by each student.
Pupils experience a treasure map on their search of a treasure chest. They follow the path that leads them to the treasure. A robot is utilized to help them in their treasure hunt and to recover their treasure. Each group searches for the same treasure; yet, only one group will find it first.
Racing to Win
Students direct robots to mimic an investigation in the book Moving Straight Ahead in order to write an algebraic equation. Mindstorms LEGO Kits are incorporated within this lesson. They write an equation showing the relationship between the time and distance from the starting time.
Students work with motion-detector probes to graph their body movements. They work in groups and use the motion-detector to show the relationship of movement to their body parts and complete a worksheet. After graphing their movements they discuss their results as a class.
How can we use the energy of color to produce a song?
Students comprehend that light is a form of energy and therefore is measurable and changeable to other forms of energy. They are shown that different colors reflect different amounts of energy that can be measured. Students determine the electromagnetic spectrum quantitatively. They complete data analysis using a data table and line graph.
What can students learn by using the robots
Students use the parts of the robotics provided, assemble the robots in order to achieve the longest distance when is let freely at the top of the ramp with a given angle. They change the angle to collect the data and make the graph "distance Vs angle." Students change the mass of the robot and collect data to graph "distance Vs mas."
Applied Science - Science and Math Lab
Although it was written to use in a science class, this measurement lesson is adaptable to Common Core standards in math for measurement and data. Youngsters are introduced to two types of measurement systems. They use both the English and metric systems for measuring volumes of water, and then perform mathematical conversions.
Applied Science - Physics Pre-Lab
Students describe the science of physics. In this Physics lesson, students observe examples of physics within their classroom. Students create a definition for physics.
Applied Science - Physics Pre-Lab
Students observe fluid motion. In this Physics lesson, students explore the principles of Pascal, Archimedes, and Bernoulli. Students list their experiences with fluid movement.
Applied Science - Physics (5A) Pre Lab
Fifth graders look at different types of waves. In this wave lesson plan, 5th graders find the difference and similarities of electromagnetic and physical waves. They review the components of waves such as crest, trough, wavelength, and wave height.
Applied Science - Technology (2A) Post Lab
Second graders explore simple machines. In this technology lesson, 2nd graders look at pulleys and gears and what the uses are for each. They complete a worksheet comparing the two.
Applied Science - Science and Math (K) Lab
In this shape instructional activity, learners cut out tangram shapes and create different pictures with them. They look at 3-D shapes as well. There is a nice, hands-on component built into this instructional activity.
Applied Science: Exploring Shapes in Nature
Explore geometry with your young mathematicians! First, have them color in different two-dimensional and three-dimensional shapes. Then take them on a walk around the classroom. Can they identify different shapes using the target vocabulary? Now take them outside, where this gets a little harder. Can they still identify these target shapes? You will have to create a shape worksheet of your own.
Applied Science - Built Environment Lab
Young scholars evaluate trash. In this Science lesson, students collect and weigh trash from their classrooms. Young scholars categorize the trash and the corresponding weights, recording the information on a data sheet.
Applied Science - Physics (K) Post Lab
Students are introduced to electricity. In this electricity lesson, students listen to the book Switch on, Switch off by Melvin Berger and discuss the use of electricity in light switches. They create a picture of an atom using pom poms.
Applied Science - Physics Lab
Learners define reflection and refraction. In this Physics instructional activity, students compare a variety of items to find properties of reflection or refraction. Learners record their findings.
Applied Science -Physics (2B) Pre Lab
Second graders look at different types of energy. In this energy instructional activity, 2nd graders define energy and the difference between kinetic and potential energy. They see examples with falling books and a slinky.
Applied Science - Physics Post-Lab
Students investigate energy. In this Physics lesson, students explore different sources of energy: heat, nuclear, and chemical. Students sing an electricity song.
