Analyzing Community Issues through the Flint, MI Water Contamination Crisis (REVISED)
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share
Rating

These 3 lessons are for high ABE/low ASE students at a level D-E Reading level to practice identifying key points in video and text and analyzing the causes and effects of social issues, and identifying solutions to these problems. By watching two short videos and reading EPA materials on the effects of lead exposure and a short article on the specific drinking water crisis in Flint, MI, students will examine key issues, analyze the problem and its causes, identify approaches to solving this problem and ones like it in other locations, and apply this approach to other scenarios that are relevant to their immediate lives.

Feel the Stress
Conditions of Use:

Rating

Working individually or in groups, students explore the concept of stress (compression) through physical experience and math. They discover why it hurts more to poke themselves with mechanical pencil lead than with an eraser. Then they prove why this is so by using the basic equation for stress and applying the concepts to real engineering problems.

Molecular Structure of Galena
Rating

Galena is believed to have been mined since 5000 B.C. The Greeks mined the mineral for the lead that it contained. However, today galena is an important part of the mining in the United States, mined in states such as Missouri, Texas, Idaho, Utah, Wisconsin, and Iowa. Australia, Canada, England, France and Mexico are the countries that produce galena. Galena is the most important source of lead, as the main component of galena is lead sulfide, PbS. It also contains silver and other metals; hence, galena is exploited for the production of silver, as well.

Molecular Structure of Molybdenite
Rating

Molybdenite, or "Moly Ore" as it is sometimes called, is a high luster sulfide mineral. The name molybdenite comes from the greek word molybdos, "lead," as it is often a lead-grey color. It is virtually indistinguishable from graphite, except that molybdenite is only slightly lighter in color, yet heavier in weight. Molybdenite ore is composed of smaller molybdenum ions between layers of more massive sulfur ions. The sulfur layer has a strong bond to the molybdenum, but not to other sulfur layers, hence the softness and perfect cleavage. As the most common molybdenum-containing compound, almost all molybdenum is mined in the form of moly ore.
