Students use a slinky, or similar product, to produce standing waves of various harmonics. They record data, perform calculations, and compare experimental values to theoretical values. Can be used as an introductory lab or formative assessment.
General lab procedures, data sheet, and post-lab questions for a simple introductory investigation of inclined planes as simple machines. Requires pull force measuring devices and means of measuring angle of incline.
A simple lab setup that gives students hands-on experience with moles and recaps fundamental chemistry concepts! Six stations are set up with materials commonly found in chemistry labs. I have my students determine the chemical formulas of the
An example, template, and rubric for a small research project that requires students to look up facts about an assigned element and use the information to complete their element's square. Once turned in, they can be cut out and stuck onto a wall or
An introductory physics project to get students familiar with the aspects of take-home projects, including material constraints, time constraints, and prototype testing. A competitive aspect is also added to the grading, which helps with student
A tool used to help students in practicing calculations of empirical formulas. Students first cut along the vertical lines up to the bold horizontal line. This results in four "flaps". I have the students label the outside of the flaps (once folded
• I would do this activity as an introduction into reaction types.
• Put students in groups and give them only the cards with reaction type names and definitions and have them match them based off of prior knowledge and context clues.
• Once all
