Each cell organelle describes its own function and makes a connection to a part of the school. Students are to predict what would happen to the cell as a whole if a certain organelle did not exist in the cell.
This test covers the following NGSS performance expectations at the middle school level:
LS1-1, LS1-2, LS1-6, LS2-1
The topics include the following:
– cells and types of cells (prokaryotic, eukaryotic, plant, animal)
– cell organelles in plant
The presentation covers the 7 following functional groups:
– Hydroxyl group
– Carbonyl group
– Carboxyl group
– Amino Group
– Sulfhydryl group
– Phosphate group
– Methyl group
There are example problems towards the end to give students practice
This is a cumulative final exam for a high school physics course. The approximate breakdown of topics on the exam is as follows and these concepts are integrated into 6 comprehensive questions:
Motion and Motion Graphs (10%)– position,
This is a hands-on tool that was created to help students better understand motion graphs. In particular, the tool cover the basic behaviors/shapes of motion graphs, transitioning amongst position, velocity, and acceleration graphs.
This can be
This is a quiz that focuses on Newton's 2nd Law of Motion. There are two different versions of the quiz as well as detailed solutions for both versions of the quiz. This product contains word documents so the questions are adaptable based on the
There are 2 versions of quizzes that assess students' understanding of waves and interference, specifically the following:
– pulse waves on a string
– half and full interference of pulse waves
– reading off basic info on an oscillating wave
This is an inquiry-based lab where, by the end of the lab, students should gain an understanding of how the density of objects is related to it floating or sinking in water. Students will learn how to measure the volume of irregularly-shaped solids
The physics motion exam is made up of 3 questions that cover the following topics:
– motion graphs (position, velocity, acceleration)
– displacement vs. distance
– speed vs. velocity
– adding vectors/determining the resultant vector.
Here are 4 easy and effective ways to create manipulatives so that students can have a hands-on experience when it comes to lessons about arrows or vectors. These can be used in the elementary classroom context all the way up to high school
These a self-assessment hand signals to gauge what students' needs are after direction instruction/lecture. The hand signals are a quick way for a teacher to understand where each student is at and what environment he/she might need going forward.
This worksheet addresses basic concepts and vocabulary related to standing waves such as node, anti-node, wavelength, as well as how wave interference contributes to standing waves. This is well-suited for an introductory lesson on (standing) waves
This is well-suited for an introductory lesson on (standing) waves and focuses on basic mathematical calculations. It addresses the relationship among variables associated with standing waves such as string length, wavelength, wave speed, and
This resource is geared towards middle school life science/biology. It can also be used in an introductory biology class in high school.
It focuses on cell organelles (both plant and animal), the differences between eukaryotic and prokaryotic
This resource contains 2 English versions of a motion exam and 1 Spanish version.
The particular topics that are covered include the following:
– position vs. time graphs
– velocity vs. time graphs
This resource contains 2 free-response questions on forces and motion. One of the questions is a lab design question around determining the coefficient of kinetic friction. The other question is a competing statements question, where two
