Becoming a Fashion Jewelry Entrepreneur: Trends, Design, and Budgeting

(View Complete Item Description)

In this lesson, learners will use creativity as they think about future business decisions and activities, including creating a budget and calculating the price points of different jewelry pieces. Targeted skills for this lesson include career, life, entrepreneurship, and employability. The learners will describe five modern trends of fashion jewelry in the region, country and worldwide, calculate the price point, and design an original piece of jewelry. This lesson was designed for one, sixty-minute, class period but can be adjusted. The learners in this lesson are presumed to be young women or men, ages 15-18, in a secondary classroom. The lesson can be a part of math, art, or business courses. Significantly, the author licensed this lesson to be reused and modified to meet the needs of any users.

Remote Learning Plan: Comparison and Discount Shopping Personal Finance

(View Complete Item Description)

This Remote Learning Plan was created by Taylor Shepard in collaboration with Andrew Easton as part of the 2020 ESU-NDE Remote Learning Plan Project. Educators worked with coaches to create Remote Learning Plans as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic.The attached Remote Learning Plan is designed for 9-12 Personal Finance students. Students will understand how to use discounts and taxes in comparison shopping. This Remote Learning Plan addresses the following NDE Standard: BMM.HS.5.12.c. It is expected that this Remote Learning Plan will take students 65 minutes to complete. Here is the direct link to the Google Doc:

Demand and Supply

(View Complete Item Description)

Since determinants of supply and demand other than the price of the goods in question are not explicitly represented in the supply-demand diagram, changes in the values of these variables are represented by moving the supply and demand curves (often described as "shifts" in the curves). By contrast, responses to changes in the price of the good are represented as movements along unchanged supply and demand curves.

Solid State Physics

(View Complete Item Description)

In the electrical engineering, solid-state materials and the properties play an essential role. A thorough understanding of the physics of metals, insulators and semiconductor materials is essential for designing new electronic devices and circuits. After short introduction of the IC fabrication process, the course starts with the crystallography. This will be followed by the basic principle of the quantum mechanics, the sold-state physics, band-structure and the relation with electrical properties of the solid-state materials. When the material physics has been throughly understood, the physics of the semiconductor device follows quite naturally and can be understood quickly and efficiently. Study Goals: The student can 1) determine the crystal structure, the density of atoms and the Miller indices of a crystal, 2) apply Schrodinger's wave equation to various potential functions and derive a probability of finding electrons, 3) discuss the concept of energy band formation and difference of material properties in terms of the band, 4) derive the concentrations of electron and holes with a given temperature in terms of Fermi energy, and 5) can discuss drift, diffusion and scattering of carriers in a semiconductor under various temperature and impurity concentrations.

Teaching Organic Farming & Gardening: Resources for Instructors

(View Complete Item Description)

Published by the UC Santa Cruz Center for Agroecology and Sustainable Food Systems, the 600-page manual covers practical aspects of organic farming and gardening, applied soil science, and social and environmental issues in agriculture. Units contain lecture outlines for instructors and detailed lecture outlines for students, field and laboratory demonstrations, assessment questions, and annotated resource lists. Although much of the material has been developed for field or garden demonstrations and skill building, most of the units can also be tailored to a classroom setting.The training manual is designed for a wide audience of those involved in teaching farming and gardening, including colleges and universities with programs in sustainable agriculture, student farms or gardens, and on-farm education programs; urban agriculture, community garden, and farm training programs; farms with internships or apprenticeships; agriculture extension stations; school gardening programs; organizations such as the Peace Corps, US AID, and other groups that provide international training in food growing and ecological growing methods; and master gardener programs.
