52 Minute Challenge
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

Students get one class period (52 minutes) to find a real problem on campus, document it, develop a solution and prepare a market-based presentation to be peer-reviewed the next day. The main goal of this project is to highlight the importance of collaboration when working under a tight deadline - a common situation in today's working world.

This project integrates engineering, design and business concepts and meets learning standards from 9th to 12th grade.

Animation About the Greenhouse Effect
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

This is a basic animation/simulation with background information about the greenhouse effect by DAMOCLES. The animation has several layers to it that allow users to drill into more detail about the natural greenhouse effect and different aspects of it, including volcanic aerosols and human impacts from burning fossil fuels.

Application of Derivatives
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-SA
Rating

We use the derivative to determine the maximum and minimum values of particular functions (e.g. cost, strength, amount of material used in a building, profit, loss, etc.).Differentiation is also used in analysis of finance and economics.

Area and Perimeter Interactive Activity and more ( Math SOL 6th)
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

Create your own shapes using colorful blocks and explore the relationship between perimeter and area. Compare the area and perimeter of two shapes side-by-side. Challenge yourself in the game screen to build shapes or find the area of funky figures. The PDF from VDOE was added to create an activity which reviews area and perimeter of triangles and rectangles on paper prior to delving into the fun, interactive activity.

Ballistics cart
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-SA
Rating

The simulation shows a ballistics cart. If the cart is at rest on a horizontal surface, it will shoot a ball straight up in the air, and catch the ball again. What if, as in this simulation, the cart is traveling at a constant velocity horizontally, instead? Will the ball land ahead of the cart, in the cart, or behind the cart? Note that the cart fires the ball straight up, with respect to the cart, when the middle of the cart passes the small vertical trigger on the track.
Use the buttons to select the different modes (whether there is a tunnel or not, and whether to show the velocity vectors).

Budget Explorer
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

Students often come to a principles course in economics with knowledge that is not correct. This example asks students to guess the percent of federal expenditures for different spending categories. They are then shown the actual percentages. The student results can be the source of a class discussion on why many of their initial estimates were wrong (as they generally are). Students can also create their own budget by changing the amounts spent in each category. Budget Explorer, implemented over the internet, uses data from the Public Budget Database of the White House Office of Management and Budget.

Building a Protein
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

This is a hands-on activity to assess the students understanding of peptide and disulfide bonds formed during protein synthesis. Students demonstrate the process of dehydration synthesis by combining amino acids through peptide bonds creating molecules of water, and one protein amino acid strand. It can also be used to assess students understanding of the process of translation.

Byrd Polar Research Center Climate Model Simulation
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

This set of animations and interactive simulations from the Byrd Polar Research Center at Ohio State University helps students develop an understanding of models used to understand the Earth System. Students consider the types of data that need to be included in a climate model, looking at inputs and outputs as well as variables, such as land surface, and how to measure changes of different parts of Earth's surface over time.

C-Learn: the International Climate Change Simulation
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating

C-Learn is a simplified version of the C-ROADS simulator. Its primary purpose is to help users understand the long-term climate effects (CO2 concentrations, global temperature, sea level rise) of various customized actions to reduce fossil fuel CO2 emissions, reduce deforestation, and grow more trees. Students can ask multiple, customized what-if questions and understand why the system reacts as it does.
