Curve Fitting

Rating
0.0 stars

With your mouse, drag data points and their error bars, and watch the best-fit polynomial curve update instantly. You choose the type of fit: linear, quadratic, cubic, or quartic. The reduced chi-square statistic shows you when the fit is good. Or you can try to find the best fit by manually adjusting fit parameters.

Eating and Exercise Activity

Eating and Exercise Activity

Rating
0.0 stars

This lesson plan accompanies the PhET simulation, "Eating and Exercise." Students can manipulate variables such as age, height, and body fat composition and compare the effect on weight of varying ratios of caloric intake to calories burned. Students will then use this information to explain which variables affect BMI and which do not. They will also investigate how dietary changes affect weight and overall health.

Equilibrium Doesn't Equal Equality: An Exploration of Equilibrium and Le Chatelier's Principle

Rating
0.0 stars

This lesson plan accompanies the PhET simulation, "Reversible Reactions." The instructional goals for this lesson are for students to understand that equilibrium is reached at the most stable ratio of reactants and products, and that when stress is placed on a system at equilibrium, the system acts in a way to counteract the stress and restore equilibrium. In this lesson, the teacher leads whole-class instruction through demonstrations and implementation of simulation. Student handouts are provided.
