Students explore population growth. In this algebra instructional activity, students model population growth and compare ideal population growth with a population whose growth is limited. Students use technology (TI-73) to determine an exponential and logistic regression equation.
In this ideal gas law worksheet, students are given a problem to solve using a hot air balloon. They are given the volume, mass, temperature of the air inside the balloon and the temperature outside the balloon. They determine if the balloon will float using the ideal gas law.
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 lesson, 12th graders create plans for an ideal city. Students reflect on how well they meet the needs and values of American Society.
Students explore Teaching the American Twenties, noting fashion, life styles, Hollywood, key authors, key people, and key events. They explore the sites and note what they can identify from the time period for this collection. They write down important things about the time period, which helps them to explain their chosen images. Finally, students create a PowerPoint presentation demonstrating their exploration and study of the Ransom Center site.
Stephen Vincent Benet’s, “By the Waters of Babylon,” offers learners a chance to examine the difference between mood and tone. After a close reading of an excerpt from the short story, the class lists the diction and imagery that builds the sense of foreboding. Individuals use the enclosed graphic organizers to repeat the process with a second excerpt. A link to additional pre-AP style learning activities based on Benet’s post-apocalyptic story is included in the richly detailed plan that deserves a place in your curriculum library.
An excellent lesson that encourages students to discover how complex figures can be broken into simpler shapes when measuring area. Working with block letters, learners are given the freedom to develop their own strategies for determining the area of the shapes, ideally working toward the rectangle subdivision method. A great differentiated activity that provides an opportunity for 3rd graders to share their unique approaches to calculating area. As an extension, consider passing out graph paper and allowing the class to create and measure the area of their own shapes.
In this gas activity, students use the ideal gas law to find volumes of gases, pressure of gases, moles of gases, mass of gases and molecules of gases. They find unknowns at standard temperature and pressure and they calculate the density of gases at standard temperature and pressure.
Students describe the basic rights and obligations of women in Islam by analyzing the words of the basic sources (in translation) to understand their basis in Islamic law Students explain the spiritual, personal and social significance of the ideal of marriage in Islam and analyze aspects of gender relations according to the Islamic sources. Finally, they compare the views of several twentieth century writers on Islam and gender issues based upon excerpts from their writings.
