Diamonds Are Forever-Most of Time!--Overview Part One of Three

Rating
0.0 stars

This lesson looks at the compositions and structure of diamonds and basic mineral structures formed by the bonds in the crystal structures created by nature. The students have an extensive hands-on lab experience with crystal growth from two very different processes, all recorded on video for later analysis. They also use the internet for a short introductory lesson to crystal systems and use the Nature Video “Diamonds” to tie their knowledge back to real life.

From Molecules to Mole Day Do's--Overview Part One of Three

From Molecules to Mole Day Do's--Overview Part One of Three

Rating
0.0 stars

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."

Global Warming Statistics--Overview Part One of Three

Rating
0.0 stars

In this lesson students research real-time and historic temperature data of U.S. and world locations, and analyze the data using mean, median, and mode averages. Students graph the data and draw conclusions by analyzing the data. Resources include Web sites with real-time data, archived data, temperature-sensitive computer graphics, meteorology, government agencies, and Earth Day information. Students use a calculator or electronic spreadsheet to compile their statistics and then graph the data using a spreadsheet or graph paper. Reasons for extreme temperature changes are explored.

I'm Late, I'm Late, for a Radioactive Date!--Overview Part One of Three

Rating
0.0 stars

This lesson can be used as an introduction to radioactivity. Students should have familiarity with the scientific notation and the units milli, micro, and nano. Students will be introduced to being science/math detectives by trying to figure out the relationship of organisms using graphs. Students then are introduced to the controversy around the Shroud of Turin, which has been carbon dated. What is the process of carbon dating, and can the results be believed?
