In this activity, students determine their own eyesight and calculate what a good average eyesight value for the class would be. Students learn about technologies to enhance eyesight and how engineers play an important role in the development of these technologies.
This activity is designed for a primary classroom (outdoors & indoors) investigation where students collect and investigate soil samples and describe the soils, looking for similarities and differences. Students develop a method of recording the data colleted and can present the information gathered.
Next lets build a diagram that break rotation into smaller parts. The next exercise will give us a chance to build our understanding of this diagram.
First we'll review De Casteljau's algorithm using three points. Then it's your turn to figure out how to do it with 4 points!
Next let's extend the averaging step from the previous lesson to include multiple points. Now we'll need to calculate positions using a weighted average.
Computer Science Standard Alignment Guides are resources for teachers working to integrate computer science into their core curriculum. These guides explain the standard, give a sample activity or lesson that teaches the standard, and ways to measure student proficiency on the skill or concept.
The Computer Science Office in Loudoun County Public Schools has developed this curriculum integration document to support the integration of the 2017 Virginia Computer Science Standards into core subject areas and beyond. Each CS standard was aligned to up to 3 grade level standards that made natural correlations.Additionally, many activities and resources were included to each standard to support the introduction and integration of the standard. For each of the six strands of the Computer Science Standards of Learning: Computing Systems, Networks and the Internet, Cybersecurity, Data and Analysis, Algorithms and Programming, and Impacts of Computing, we have included tiered support called "Fuel", "Spark", and "Ignite". The "Fuel" is provided to build teacher capacity and students' understanding in understanding the CS SOL. The "Spark" provides a Computer Science integrated experience into a core or speciality subject SOL. The "Ignite" section is where teachers in Loudoun County have the opportunity to share authentic learning experiences and lessons in our LCPS Computer Science Lesson Repository.This document was created as part of the Virginia K-12 Computer Science Pipeline which is partly funded through a GOVA and DHCD grant in partnership with Chesapeake Public Schools, Loudoun County Public Schools, and the Loudoun Education Foundation.
