Jacklyn Bonneau's Physics, Chemistry, Engineering Science Activities Page Mass Academy Chemistry, physics, Engineering and Their activities. Hi, I am Jacklyn Bonneau, a teacher at Massachusetts Academy for Mathematics and Science at Worcester, Massachusetts. Mass Academy, I teach Chemistry, Integrated Chemistry and physics (ICP), Research Seminar http://www.wpi.edu/~bonneau
Extractions: The academy is a school for students accelerated in mathematics and science as juniors and seniors. It is an exam school which is free to the students and considered a public school. We are located on the campus of Worcester Polytechnic Institute . Our philosophy includes an active learning environment where students explore many topics in an interdisciplinary way. Please walk through some of the activities below and let us know what you think. I am currently working to construct student pages, faculty support pages will be following. At the academy, any student who has not had Chemistry in their sending school takes a semester of Chemistry as a mandatory elective. As an elective it is an "extra" academic class which contains a laboratory component and many home activities and labs. Below you will find many such activities for your use. Explorations in Physics is taken by all juniors at the academy. We do a variety of activities, most of which are hands-on and open ended. A sampling of some of those which I have worked to create is listed below.

Applications Of Probeware For Physics Education CoachLab and ULAB Probeware Applications in physics Education physics teachers probably teach concepts of motion. Experiment with gas and pressure laws. Explore physical science concepts using Seibun Mind Development Kits and Conceptual physics activities http://www.harris-educational.com/Probeware/disciplines/physics.htm
Extractions: Applications of Probeware for Physics Scroll Down for Table of Contents Introduction Physics teachers probably do experiments involving collecting data more often than any other kind of teacher. Coach probeware is designed with educators needs in mind. Coach is great at quantitative experiments but it also helps students with hands-on conceptual physics. Coach is unique in that it can easily control variables in an experiment as well as recording data. This is used in a very thought provoking experiment about resonance. On this page you will find information about using CoachLab software and hardware (as well as TI-CBL) in Physics and Physical Science. Coach can record data for milliseconds thus allowing you to perform many time sensitive physics experiments. Coach can record data from up to six sensors at a time. Coach can graph one sensor vs. another one thus allowing experiments such as voltage vs. current or temperature vs. pressure. Video Analysis lets you present physics concepts in a concrete way that students can easily understand.

Amusement Park Physics Tell your students that they're going to be learning about conversion of potential energy to kinetic energy, the balance of motion and force, Newton's Third Law of Motion, Galileo's study of falling objects, and the interaction of gravity and weightlessness and you'll receive blank stares. But, you'll get a different reaction if you announce that in their next unit they'll be learning about Amusement Park roller coasters, carousels, bumper cars, free fall and the pendulum rides. Each ride at the site has a brief description of the physics underlying it, an activity or extension (e.g., students design their own rollercoaster), and related links where students can learn more.
Sea World Physics These activities will teach you how to use the tools and begin your training incollecting and analyzing data. Your mission is to understand how the physics http://www.seaworld.org/just-for-teachers/guides/physics/pre-activities.htm
Extractions: SeaWorld Physics Pre-Activities SeaWorld Physics Mission Student Mission: Each of you will be placed on a scientific research team of four or five members. Each team will be given an assignment to visit specific habitats, shows and rides at SeaWorld and make observations and gather data. Since each team's assignment may vary, it is important that you carry out your mission precisely, so that the group picture will be complete. It is critical that your research group work together as a team comparing answers, taking turns making the measurements and asking questions of each other. Before your visit to SeaWorld, your team will be involved with pre-activities to prepare you for your mission. These activities will teach you how to use the tools and begin your training in collecting and analyzing data. Your mission is to understand how the physics concepts of velocity, acceleration, free fall and buoyancy apply to SeaWorld. In the post-activities, you will have an opportunity to compare your abilities to those of the animals you observed in the park activities. You will also be combining your data and observations made at Sea World with those of other teams who had the same assignment. The analysis which will then follow will give your team a chance to show what you have learned. The better your data and the more observant you are, the easier the analysis will be. Velocity

LANGUAGE ARTS: Prepare a handout for your students listing Newton's Three Laws of Motion, leaving blank space underneath each law for the student to write in. Ask students to paraphrase each of Newton's Laws in their own words. Initiate a class discussion about gravity and how it affects us each day. Now ask students to write a short story about what a typical day would be like if there was no gravitational force. Students must include descriptions of normal activities, such as eating meals, sleeping, going to school, participating in a sport, etc.

In Part 1, How do things and images move? Classical physics, the description of hiking and other everyday motion leads the authors to introduce for its description the concepts of time, length, mass, charge, field, manifold, and lagrangian, which allow us to understand among other things why we have legs instead of wheels, and why we can see the stars.

Super Bowl Physics Sunday night, you can use this opportunity to teach a little can learn more aboutmomentum in the following physics Explorer activities Momentum and http://www.riverdeep.net/current/2002/01/012802t_football.jhtml
Extractions: The collision of objects moving at different velocities. The transfer of energy from one object to another. Conservation of momentum. The effect of gravity on a projectile. If that all sounds like something from a physics textbook, it very well could be. But it could also be describing the kinds of interactions and events observed in a typical professional football game. This Sunday night, February 3, the New England Patriots and the St. Louis Rams will meet in Super Bowl XXXVI in New Orleans, Louisiana. This annual championship game between the two National Football League (NFL) conference titleholders is usually one of the most-watched televison shows of the year. The New England Patriots upset the Pittsburgh Steelers 24-17 for the American Football Conference (AFC) championship. Riding high on spectacular play by their special teams, the Patriots are anxious to return to New Orleans where they lost their only two previous Super Bowl appearances.
