In this lesson, students learn that navigational techniques change when people travel to different places land, sea, air and in space. For example, an explorer traveling by land uses different methods of navigation than a sailor or an astronaut.
What do we notice? What do we wonder? This approach can be used throughout the year to frame language-rich science experiences. This version, in particular, is intended to establish early in the year that curiosity and questions are valued and welcome!
This is a desktop application for visualization of data with convenient plotting functions. It is intended for educational/scientific use and teaching data analysis skills such as aggregation, merging data and getting statistics.
Though the program has a spreadsheet like interface, the focus is on data manipulation with very configurable 2D/3D plotting rather than data entry. Though basic cell editing and row/column changes are supported. The program is open source., licensed under the GPL.
This program is suitable for use by secondary school and third level students wishing to learn about data manipulation and advanced plotting.
Student teams design and create LEGO® structures to house and protect temperature sensors. They leave their structures in undisturbed locations for a week, and regularly check and chart the temperatures. This activity engages students in the design and analysis aspects of engineering.
This lesson provides a brief overview of surface and upper-air data and how these data are plotted on meteorological charts. The content introduces various charting and reporting techniques, including station models, contour analyses, streamlines, and upper air maps. Examples cover both the Northern Hemisphere and Southern Hemisphere and provide learners with opportunities to practice recognizing frequently used weather symbols. Supplemental materials include three Weather Symbol Identification drills. Completing these drills may require approximately 1-1.5 hours above the length of time estimated for the lesson.
Mark A. Tambone, Passaic County Community CollegeI created this process chart to aid students through the entire writing and editing process. Additionally, this chart helps students remain mindful of proper time management and scheduling which is needed in order to utilize our tutoring services.
