All About Me

(View Complete Item Description)

In this lesson plan, the traditional autobiography writing project is given a twist as students write alphabiographies—recording an event, person, object, or feeling associated with each letter of the alphabet. Students are introduced to the idea of the alphabiography through a presentation giving the instructions of how to create guidelines for writing their own alphabiographies. Students create an entry for each letter of the alphabet, writing about an important event from their lives. After the entry for each letter, students sum up the stories by writing the life lessons they learned from the events. Since this type of autobiography breaks out of chronological order, students can choose what has been important in their lives. And since the writing pieces are short, even reluctant writers are eager to write!

Tower O' Power

(View Complete Item Description)

In this activity, students learn about creating a design directly from a CAD (computer-aided design) program. They will design a tower in CAD and manufacture the parts with a laser cutter. A competition determines the tower design with the best strength:weight ratio. Students also investigate basic structural truss concepts and stress concentrations. Partnership with a local college or manufacturing center is necessary for the completion of this project.

OpenStax Chemistry

(View Complete Item Description)

Chemistry is designed to meet the scope and sequence requirements of the two-semester general chemistry course. The textbook provides an important opportunity for students to learn the core concepts of chemistry and understand how those concepts apply to their lives and the world around them. The book also includes a number of innovative features, including interactive exercises and real-world applications, designed to enhance student learning. Coverage and scope Our Chemistry textbook adheres to the scope and sequence of most general chemistry courses nationwide. We strive to make chemistry, as a discipline, interesting and accessible to students. With this objective in mind, the content of this textbook has been developed and arranged to provide a logical progression from fundamental to more advanced concepts of chemical science. Topics are introduced within the context of familiar experiences whenever possible, treated with an appropriate rigor to satisfy the intellect of the learner, and reinforced in subsequent discussions of related content. The organization and pedagogical features were developed and vetted with feedback from chemistry educators dedicated to the project. Chapter 1: Essential Ideas Chapter 2: Atoms, Molecules, and Ions Chapter 3: Composition of Substances and Solutions Chapter 4: Stoichiometry of Chemical Reactions Chapter 5: Thermochemistry Chapter 6: Electronic Structures and Periodic Properties of Elements Chapter 7: Chemical Bonding and Molecular Geometry Chapter 8: Advanced Theories of Covalent Bonding Chapter 9: Gases Chapter 10: Liquids and Solids Chapter 11: Solutions and Colloids Chapter 12: Kinetics Chapter 13: Fundamental Equilibrium Concepts Chapter 14: Acid-Base Equilibria Chapter 15: Equilibria of Other Reaction Classes Chapter 16: Thermodynamics Chapter 17: Electrochemistry Chapter 18: Representative Metals, Metalloids, and Nonmetals Chapter 19: Transition Metals and Coordination Chemistry Chapter 20: Organic Chemistry Chapter 21: Nuclear Chemistry Pedagogical foundation and features Throughout Chemistry, you will find features that draw the students into scientific inquiry by taking selected topics a step further. Students and educators alike will appreciate discussions in these feature boxes. Chemistry in Everyday Life ties chemistry concepts to everyday issues and real-world applications of science that students encounter in their lives. Topics include cell phones, solar thermal energy power plants, plastics recycling, and measuring blood pressure. How Sciences Interconnect feature boxes discuss chemistry in context of its interconnectedness with other scientific disciplines. Topics include neurotransmitters, greenhouse gases and climate change, and proteins and enzymes. Portrait of a Chemist presents a short bio and an introduction to the work of prominent figures from history and present day so that students can see the “face” of contributors in this field as well as science in action.
