Negative Feedback Op-Amp Circuits
In this electrical worksheet, students design and build a op-amp model to grasp the understanding of op-amp circuits before answering a series of 21 open-ended questions that include schematics. This worksheet is printable and there are on-line answers to the questions.
Students design and build an irrigation system that can move water from one place to another. In this engineering lesson, students test whether their system can move two cups of water to at least three feet from the source. They evaluate and make changes when necessary.
Energy and Work: Transformation Through Engines
High schoolers conduct a webquest on an energy source they chose. In this physics lesson, students design an experiment to determine the factors affecting potential and kinetic energy. They calculate speed and create distance vs. time graphs.
From Genes to Jeans
This unit of lessons is designed for 7th through 9th graders. They are introduced to the world of agriculture and the genetic research and various technologies that are associated with agriculture. Pupils work together to come up with a genetically altered product. This incredible, 96-page plan is chock full of great teaching ideas, activities, assignments, worksheets, rubrics, video links, and website links that make implementation feasible.
Open-Loop Op-Amp Circuits
For this electrical worksheet, students design and build a op-amp model to show understanding after answering a series of 18 open-ended questions that include analyzing schematics. This worksheet is printable and there are on-line answers to the questions.
Students consider the two finalists in the contest for architectural designs for the site of the World Trade Center. They create their own designs for a meaningful public space, then critique each other's designs.
Yeast Bread: Final Evaluation Project
Identify and prepare yeast breads. National Standard 14.3.3 Identify the classes of breads: rolls, loaves, deep-fat fried Identify ingredients in yeast breads and their functions: flour, yeast, liquid, salt, sugar, fat and eggs Identify the purpos
Spend a Week in Germany
Seventh graders engage in a series of activities designed to be a fun week enabling students to experience life in Germany. The activities are aligned with state objectives and could be applied to any country of interest to Students.
Playing With Science
Young scientists investigate the scientific concepts and principles that help make common toys such as hula hoops, yo-yos, slinkies, and silly putty work. As a class, they read "Backyard Rocket Science, Served Wet" to get a look behind the scenes of inventions. They then develop exhibits to display in a "Science of Toys" museum.
Wetlands Systems and the Water Cycle
Students design an artificial wetland for one semester and monitor their living machine in class. They will record their observations for further investigation.
Play to Learn
Students design a new playground environment after reading an article from The New York Times. Students incorporate math into the playground design by using precise measurements and prepare a scale drawing with key.
Students examine the issues that designers and civic planners face in designing memorials to historic tragedies, wars and other events. They design memorials dedicated to the events of September 11, 2001.
Students discuss the Heisenberg uncertainty principle and how it applies to the subatomic world. Working in groups, they design a model that would help others to understand the uncertainty principle. Written explanations are included with the model.
Nonlinear Op-amp Circuits
In this electrical worksheet, students draw a schematic design and build a Op-amp model to grasp the understanding of non-linear op-amp circuits before answering a series of 17 open-ended questions. Students will analyze schematics in order to answer the questions. This worksheet is printable and there are on-line answers to the questions.
Where the Wild Things Are
Students explore the role of gargoyles in New York City architecture as a starting point to considering architectural structures in their city. They create designs that illustrate ways in which those local structures may be enhanced by gargoyles.
The Statue of Liberty: The meaning and Use of a National Symbol
Engage your class in a series of activities, each related to the use or analysis of symbols used to convey patriotic or national concepts. They identify different national symbols and explain their meanings, discussing the importance of symbols. Pupils also analyze images and songs for symbolic meaning, analyze the poem "The New Colossus," and finish by creating a symbolic poster.
Learners design and carry out an experiment according to the scientific method. The experiment must test the effects of time and concentration on the rate of diffusion of potassium permanganate into potato cubes. After performing the experiment, Students prepare a written report of their results and a graph of their data.
A Life to Remember
Students test and discuss their ability to remember events in their recent and past history and reflect on cases of dissociative fugue and amnesia. They graph and analyze data to look for patterns in the ability to recall a list of words. Finally, they identify and record instances when they use their memory and write a response reflecting on how their dependence on a functioning memory.
Using the Patterns and Symbols of Mali Mud Cloth to Convey Identity
Students participate in relating the role of the arts in defining identity. They examine the community in West African society and how members of that community define their role. They view how artifacts, music and performance can express one's identity and mark life passages from birth to death.
