Climb every mountain, even one you create in an interactive. Individuals solve a problem involving slopes and distances of campsites on a mountain. Answering a set of challenge questions aids in the process.
How do you put 4.5 billion years into terms that young scholars can understand? Use your arms! Examine just how long our Earth has been around in a short video. The content includes the appearance of single-celled, then multicellular...
Quantium entanglement? The Uncertainty Principle? A cubit of data? Spooky Action at a Distance? How do these terms figure in an answer to the question of whether or not it will ever be possible to teleport? A short video provides all the...
Your class will be on top of their game when it comes to mid-ocean ridges! The second installment in a 13-part series focuses on the 65,000-km underwater ridge system that spans our globe. Junior oceanographers practice placing the...
Discover the distance all the way around. The video introduces the concept of the perimeter of a figure. An explanation shows how to find the perimeter of a variety of polygons along with regular polygons. The presentation highlights the...
The number of bicycle wheel turns is as good as any way to describe the distance from school to home. An interactive lets young mathematicians determine the number of city blocks a person bicycles. They use this information along with an...
Study diffraction patterns using CDs and DVDs! Scholars measure the diffraction patterns of a light wave as it hits a CD or DVD. Using the information, they can measure the distance between the tracks.
Up, down, back, and forth. When you make a pendulum out of a spring, there's a lot to observe. Aspiring masters of motion examine the combined kinetic energies of spring and pendulum motion using a detailed interactive. Learners observe...
It keeps going, and going, and going ... how does the Juno space probe have enough power to travel to Jupiter? Junior astronauts use a THNKR "Why with Nye!" video to discover solar-powered science with the one and only Bill Nye. Topics...
Hit a home run with a resource that is all fun and games. Learners apply an interactive to determine the horizontal component of the distance a baseball travels. They must consider vector projections for this task.
Hyperbolas—practice thinking outside of the box. Pupils alter the end behavior box to create various graphs of hyperbolas. They determine formulas to find the distance from the origin to the foci. Using that information, scholars...
Why are people afraid of nuclear power plants? A video in the Veritasium playlist explains that radiation doesn't travel very far, yet people still worry. Then it discusses the possible release of radioactive atoms, which do travel a...
Shodor Education Foundation
What does the graph mean? Pupils view 10 graphs and determine whether they are possible based on their contexts. The contexts are distance versus time and profit versus time.
Just in time for the start of the Winter 2018 Olympics, you can track the Olympic torch relay through the Republic of Korea. But there must be some math involved, right? Give learners a learning exercise that prompts them to calculate...
Many assume light intensity decreases proportionally to your distance from the sun. An interesting video discusses why this isn't true and what actually happens. It shares the flashes of light people would observe and then compares what...
Apply bisectors and distances to angles. Using the definition of an angle bisector, a portion of a geometry playlist draws a diagram showing the angle bisector. The video details properties of an angle bisector and their converses....
When the tape measure will not reach, use similarity. An installment of a large playlist on geometry introduces the method of indirect measurement. Using a story of finding the distance to the sun, the video shows how to use similar...
You thought hooking up your TV was difficult! Scholars learn about the various components that allow Internet users to send information across vast distances. This includes wires, fiber optic cables, and WiFi.
It all depends what is given. The section of a large geometry playlist discusses the two formulas for finding the circumference of a circle. With the aid of the formulas, the presenter demonstrates finding the distance around circles in...
The shortest distance from point A to point B is a straight line—or is it? Young scholars determine the shortest route either along a circular path or through the center of the circle. Learners gain a unique perspective on arc length and...
Can you determine how far down a rock drops without visual clues? Viewers observe a clip from a movie testing vertical distance only based on sound. They must determine if it is safe to drop down themselves or if it is farther than their...
Sometimes you just need a taco. Young mathematicians investigate two different paths on a beach to get to a taco cart. Completion of the task requires finding distances using the Pythagorean Theorem and considering the different walking...
National History Day
Often, the real-life experiences of soldiers gets lost back home when the war seems so far away. Scholars investigate the personal side of World War I in the trenches of Europe to complete a collaborative social studies activity. When...
Which is the best reflection of them all? Given four diagrams, pupils determine which one shows the most accurate reflection of a quadrilateral. Two images provide the distances of each vertex from the line of reflection, as well as the...
