Designed for science students in high school physics, this activity is NGSS, Common Core, and STEM-aligned and uses common experiences and materials to apply your lessons in a meaningful way. Your resource is fully-editable and can be uploaded to your class site or printed for students' use. Learning Goals: - Apply concepts such as the work energy theorem and conservation of energy to solving a real world problem - Develop a prototype and experimental procedures that can be used safely as a model for a real world scenario - Work as engineers and “sell” an idea for a ride Prerequisites: - Conservation of Energy and Types of Energy - Work and the Work-Energy Theorem - Newton’s Laws (mostly Newton’s Second Law) - Friction NGSS HS-PS3-1 Energy - Create a computational model to calculate the change in the energy of one component in a system when the change in energy of the other component(s) and energy flows in and out of the system are known. HS-PS3-2 Energy - Develop and use models to illustrate that energy at the macroscopic scale can be accounted for as a combination of energy associated with the motions of particles (objects) and energy associated with the relative positions of particles (objects). HS-PS3-3 Energy - Design, build, and refine a device that works within given constraints to convert one form of energy into another form of energy. HS-ETS1-2: Design a solution to a complex real-world problem by breaking it down into smaller, more manageable problems that can be solved through engineering. HS-ETS1-3: Evaluate a solution to a complex real-world problem based on prioritized criteria and tradeoffs that account for a range of constraints, including cost, safety, reliability, and aesthetics, as well as possible social, cultural, and environmental impacts.

Cloud Types – An In-depth Look - An Advanced Meteorological Lesson

Cloud Types – An In-depth Look - An Advanced Meteorological Lesson

Product Description Cloud Types. This 41-slide deep dive into cloud types is geared towards high school and college level students. The PowerPoint contains diagrams, five embedded videos, examples, discussion lead-ins, and explanations that will keep your students interested throughout. Your lesson bundle includes a teacher and student version in both PowerPoint and PDF formats. If you're looking for something for older students, please check out my Cloud Types MS Lesson. In order, the lesson covers: - History - Three Basic Cloud Types - Ten Fundamental Cloud Types - Rare Clouds The student version of the PowerPoint contains multiple blanks that need to be filled in throughout the lesson. These blanks are conveniently underlined and bolded on the teacher copy. I have found this to be the most effective means of keeping my students engaged and active without having them write everything out. This also leaves more time for discussion and activities. This file is in .zip format. All that means is you download the lesson package as one file (.zip) and then double-click it to extract it. No additional software is needed, your PC or Mac will do all the work. Please view the Preview File to obtain a sense of my style, see how my PowerPoint lesson is structured and evaluate my work. If you are not 100% happy with what you purchase, I will refund your entire purchase price via PayPal. To access the video(s), begin the slideshow and click the image of the video player. A new window will open up taking you directly to the video.

Friction Safety - A Physics Project Based Learning Activity (PBL)

Friction Safety - A Physics Project Based Learning Activity (PBL)

Product Description This is an engaging, problem-based inquiry activity that gets your students to examine Friction to solve a real-life problem and learn to think critically. Designed for science students in high school physics, this activity is NGSS, Common Core, and STEM-aligned and uses common experiences and materials to apply your lessons in a meaningful way. Your resource is fully-editable and can be uploaded to your class site or printed for students' use. Learning Goals: - Develop a prototype that can realistically be used to solve a real-world problem - Design a set of experimental procedures to determine the coefficient of friction between two surfaces Prerequisites: - Newton’s Laws (mostly Newton’s Second Law) NGSS HS-ETS1-2: Design a solution to a complex real-world problem by breaking it down into smaller, more manageable problems that can be solved through engineering. HS-ETS1-3: Evaluate a solution to a complex real-world problem based on prioritized criteria and tradeoffs that account for a range of constraints, including cost, safety, reliability, and aesthetics, as well as possible social, cultural, and environmental impacts. HS-PS2-1 Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions - Analyze data to support the claim that Newton’s second law of motion describes the mathematical relationship among the net force on a macroscopic object, its mass, and its acceleration. HS-PS2-3 Motion and Stability: Forces and Interactions - Apply scientific and engineering ideas to design, evaluate, and refine a device that minimizes the force on a macroscopic object during a collision.
