High schoolers experience real life situations where trigonometry is used on a daily basis. They utilize trigonometry to the solving of application problems that involve the calculating of the sine, cosine, and tangents of a given angle as well as the finding of the length of a missing side of a right triangle given an angle and a side.
Young scholars explore the core concepts of Computer Science problem modeling, algorithm design, optimization, and performance evaluation using a metaphor of building peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. They follow instructions to make a sandwich using a computer command narrative.
After having a class discussion on the three states of matter, young scientists utilize the wonderful substance, Oobleck in order to experience something that changes states of matter. They also create "sparkle jars" which further-demonstrate the three states of matter. This engaging, hands-on lesson should be highly-motivating.
Students experience examining motion by exploring their own with the use of motion detectors, projectors and laptops. They discover how to measure their motion with a motion detector and how their motion looks as a p. A time graph is created to explore how various motions are represented on a distance position.
Students utilize microscopes to observe, compare, measure and count in a lab experiment. They incorporate their lab experiment as a bridge between the introduction to living things--cells, plants and photosynthesis. The scientific process is analyzed through an experiment with a leaf.
