Applied Science - Science and Math Lab
Students investigate topology. In this Applied Science lesson students explore higher, more abstract mathematics using tangles. Students make topologically related shapes.
Topology and Geomery
Students relate topology to polygons. In this geometry activity, students make the connection between different shapes and topologically equivalent relationships. They use Mobius strips to create and move shapes around.
Topology - The Mathematics of Distortion
In this topology worksheet, 7th graders solve and complete 12 different problems that include shapes and math distortion. First, they use the forms of capital letters as guides, stretch or bend the shape in the first column into as many letters as possible. Then, students match each shape to its topologically equivalent design.
The Fresh Prince of Bel Air Gets Connected
Students view video clips from the TV show, "The Fresh Prince of Bel Air" to show their different uses of computers. They review the steps involved in designing and planning a networked office or home and analyze the needs of the users based upon what they need them to do and design a network plan for the Banks family from the show.
Students identify the different properties of Euler's Characteristics. In this geometry lesson, students identify the shape and surface a polygon. They relate the concept of Euler to solving real world problems.
Math Morphing Proximate and Evolutionary Mechanisms
Students identify the different types of fractals. In this geometry lesson, students use math to analyze different biological phenomena. They collect data from the experiments and construct graphs.
The Moebius Strip
Students investigate mathematical patterns using the Moebius Strip. The Moebius Strip is an interesting topological figure. The investigation also provides a good exercise in having students derive a generalization from their empirical observations.
How to Draw N-space Cubes
Students draw hypercubes using both an intuitive visual and mathematical approach. They access an online tutorial, listen to class lectures and follow step-by-step directions to draw a hypercube.
Field Research Project: Comparing the Parent Rock Material of the San Francisco Terranes With Local Soil Types
Students investigate rocks and minerals and take a field trip to sample soils. They analyze rocks and soil, research the geological terrenes of the topology of San Francisco, and produce a lab research report.
In this electrical worksheet, 1st graders design and build a circuit model to grasp the understanding of filters in circuits pertaining to impedance and cut-off frequency. They answer a series of 31 open-ended questions that include analyzing schematics. This worksheet is printable and there are on-line answers to the questions.
Class A: BJT Amplifiers
Within this electrical circuit worksheet, students draw a schematic design and build a transmitter to grasp the understanding of bipolar junction amplifiers before answering a series of 62 open-ended questions in which they will analyze schematic drawings. This worksheet is printable and there are on-line answers to the questions.
A VIEW FROM THE TOP
Students explore the idea of aerial photography through the story of Amelia the Pigeon. They view an actual aerial photograph of their school or home, and then write a story describing what Amelia would see if she flew over their school or house.
Tell a Totem Story
Students study and view pictures of Native American totem poles on the internet. They create totem poles using PowerPoint that represent their family histories using symbols to designate historic events.
Understanding Money and current Currency exchange
Twelfth graders explore the nature of money. In this Economics instructional activity, 12th graders study how monetary systems evolve. Students practice online currency converters to learn how foreign exchange rates work.
Multi-stage Transistor Amplifiers
For this electrical worksheet, students design and build a circuit board using diodes, transistors, and dry cell batteries, to grasp the understanding of circuit design before answering a series of 15 open-ended questions that include analyzing schematics. This worksheet is printable and there are on-line answers to the questions.
Power Conversion Circuits
In this electrical worksheet, students draw a schematic design and build a circuit board to grasp the understanding of power conversion circuits before answering a series of 30 open-ended questions including analyzing schematics. This worksheet is printable and there are on-line answers to the questions.
In this electrical worksheet, students design and build a circuit board to grasp the understanding of DC-AC circuit design before answering a series of 25 open-ended questions that include schematics. This worksheet is printable and there are on-line answers to the questions.
National Marine Sanctuaries Fish
Information is provided on Gray's Reef, Florida Keys, and Flower Garden Banks marine sanctuaries. Young marine biologists then visit the FishBase and REEF databases to collect fish species information for each location. They then complete a data table comparing the different marine sanctuaries. This a wonderful activity for giving your explorers experience with real databases.
20th Century Life Preservers
Learners design their own time capsule containers that represent their visions of the 20th century and of the future millennium.
In this physics instructional activity, students build a circuit based on the schematic diagram and solve the following questions about it. They calculate voltage, current and resistance of the circuits.
