From Molecules to Mole Day Do's--Overview Part One of Three
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

Mole Day is a "national" celebration of chemistry and education that is an ideal time to engage families with the science educational process. It is observed from 6:02 am to 6:02 pm on October 23rd (6:02, 10/23). Why? The mole is a unit of measurement based on work done almost 200 years ago by Amadeo Avogadro as he studied gas behavior. His work led to the association of a number – 6.02 x 1023 – with the mole. Similar to the dozen, a mole is a unit of matter that allows particles to be "counted."

Is it ethical, or otherwise questionable, to create a clone if a person could not reproduce in any other way? Should cloned cells be "harvested" and grown in the laboratory into specific organs for use in life-saving transplant surgery? With information they have collected and analyzed, students will develop and write persuasive essays, presenting their views on the topic of cloning.

Scrubbing Bubbles: Tremendous Triglycerides--Overview Part One of Three
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

In this lesson students will examine the structure of tryglycerides – commonly known as fat molecules – and how when they are mixed with a base, sodium is produced that makes water more powerful. Soaps and detergents are made up of molecules that have a non-polar hydrocarbon on one end and an ionic charge on the other. This dual combination is the key ingredient to the cleaning action of soap. Dirt contains oils, greases, and other non-polar compounds. Since water is extremely polar, water alone will not dissolve or clean most dirt.

So You Think the World Evolves Around You?--Overview Part One of Three
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars
Overview:

A super continent, Pangaea, began to break apart into the modern continents about 260 million years ago, causing the isolation (and separate evolution) of various groups of organisms from each other. Since this event, the living species inhabiting these separate continents have progressively changed. Organisms have learned to adapt through hiding, camouflaging and mimicking other organisms’ efforts to outfox potential predators seeking their next meal. Many of these changes can be attributed to the concept of evolution which includes physical as well as behavioral changes.
