In this Boyle's Law instructional activity, students choose an experiment where pressure or volume is dependent on the other and they graph the inverse relationship between the two. They increase or decrease the independent variable and use their data to calculate 1/V for each data point. Students do this for an ideal gas, carbon dioxide, helium gas and nitrogen gas. They answer 10 questions about their results and the relationship between volume and pressure.
Students discover the work of Plato. In this philosophy lesson, students investigate Plato's vision of the ideal society as they read excerpts of The Republic. Students then create their own frameworks for a Utopian high school.
Students investigate India's technology outsourcing, and examine their own career choices to determine what technology is required in the field. Students dermine how careers have changed over time and speculate future changes, then write resumes for an ideal candidate in twenty years.

In this comparing covenant lesson, 5th graders examine primary source documents that are examples of covenants from 18th century New England. They read and make concept webs of the covenants before writing an original covenant.
Students solve problems involving gas laws. In this chemistry lesson, students compare the properties of ideal and real gases. They explain how volume, pressure and temperature are related.
For this thermodynamics worksheet, students determine what work is done by an ideal gas and if there was a change in internal energy of the system. This worksheet has 5 problems to solve.
Twelfth graders explore how the villages and cities in which they live reflect the culture, human needs, values and ideals of their citizens.  In this geography instructional activity, 12th graders create plans for an ideal city.  Students reflect on how well they meet the needs and values of American Society.
