Physical Changes and Conservation of Matter [electronic resource]

Loading...
In everyday life, observations that things disappear or appear seem to contradict one of the fundamental laws of nature: matter can be neither created nor destroyed. In this session, participants learn how the principles of the particle model are consistent with conservation of matter.

The Particle Nature of Matter [electronic resource]: Solids, Liquids and Gases

Loading...
Participants learn how the particle model can be turned into a powerful tool for generating predictions about the behavior of matter under a wide range of conditions. This essential idea that links chemistry and physics, is given microscopic examination that reveals solids, liquids and gases are composed of tiny, discrete and constantly moving particles.

Chemical Changes and Conservation of Matter [electronic resource]

Loading...
How can the particle model account for what happens when two clear liquids are mixed together and produce a milky-white solid? What happens when iron rusts? Where do the elements come from? In this session, participants extend the particle model by looking inside the particles, learn about some early chemical pioneers, and in the process discover how the law of conservation of matter applies even at the scale of atoms and molecules.

Heat and Temperature [electronic resource]

Loading...
Participants focus on the difference between heat and temperature, and examine how both are defined in terms of particles. The particle model is then used to explain a number of everyday phenomena, from why things expand when they are heated to the role that temperature plays in changes of state.

Density and Pressure [electronic resource]

Loading...
Participants examine density, an essential property of matter. They also look at how particles of matter are in constant motion, which leads to a deeper understanding of fluid pressure. Lastly, the concepts of pressure and density are investigated to explain the macroscopic phenomenon of rising and sinking.

Extending the Particle Model of Matter [electronic resource]

Loading...
Participants extend their understanding of the particle model to explain additional macroscopic phenomena, including the electrical properties of matter. Participants review the progression of ideas covered in the course and anticipate future developments in the understanding of matter.

I Didn't Know This Was an English Class! [electronic resource]: Connections Across the Disciplines

Loading...
Explains how teachers can measure students' depth of understanding by requiring them to make connections across the disciplines. Explores how teachers can encourage these connections by designing performance tasks that build on other disciplines.

On-location reports from five innovative programs across America, show how parents and communities can work together to promote better, more creative math and science education. A youth services director in Lorain, Ohio, works with gang members and uses a pool table to teach them basic math while helping them develop self-confidence. A mother in Reston, Virginia, invents a colorful shapes-and-patterns game to teach geometry and other advanced math concepts in an after-school program. Bob Moses and David Dennis, former 60s voting rights activists, today focus on teaching African American students math skills and confidence through the Algebra Project. A New York City class learns fractions, ratio, proportion, and geometric principles while designing and building models of a housing p [...]
