Resources to mark the 100th day of school with math activities. Challenge students to generate 100 different ways to represent the number 100. Students will easily generate 99 + 1 and 50 + 50, but encourage them to think out of the box. Challenge them to include examples from all of the NCTM Standards strands: number sense, numerical operations, geometry, measurement, algebra, patterns, data analysis, probability, discrete math, Create a class list to record the best entries. Some teachers write 100 in big bubble numeral style and then record the entries inside the numerals. (less)

14-3-3 Proteins: A Number of Functions for a Numbered Protein

Signal transduction events can be regulated both by posttranslational modifications and by ... (more)

Signal transduction events can be regulated both by posttranslational modifications and by protein-protein interactions. 14-3-3 proteins are critically involved in both of these processes. The 14-3-3s, originally catalogued as small, abundant brain proteins, are expressed as multiple isoforms in all eukaryotic cells and are now known to recognize and to bind to distinct phosphoserine or phosphothreonine motifs on target proteins. Their binding partners include key proteins involved in metabolism, cell cycle control, the DNA damage response, transcription, protein synthesis, and apoptosis. This STKE Review with 2 figures, 1 interactive molecular structure, and 118 references describes 14-3-3 proteins and highlights how these simple proteins have profound effects on the regulation of a vast number of cellular events.

This lesson uses interactive diagrams of ground shaking from the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake to teach students about the mechanics involved in the rupture of a fault and the propagation of seismic waves as an earthquake progresses. They will understand that earthquakes begin at a point; that a long section of a fault can rupture during an earthquake; that the earth shakes in all different directions and modes; and that the intensity of shaking depends on the amount of energy released by the earthquake, distance from the fault, and the type of soil or rock beneath the surface. Links are provided to additional lesson plans and information, and to the complete movie of shaking intensity from which the diagrams were made. (less)
