In nature most elements occur as a mixture of two or more isotopes. Eachisotope of an element has a fixed mass with a natural percent abundance. The mass of theelement needs to reflect the masses of these isotopes in their respective abundances. Giventhe masses and abundances, how is the Average Atomic Mass determined?
In this activity, you will determine the atomic mass of the fictitous element Candium.

Flat Stanley Unit Study
Rating

The basic principle of The Flat Stanley Project is to connect your ...

The basic principle of The Flat Stanley Project is to connect your child, student or classroom with other children or classrooms participating in the Project by sending out "flat" visitors, created by the children, through the mail (or digitally, with The Flat Stanley app). Kids then talk about, track, and write about their flat character's journey and adventures. Although similar to a pen-pal activity, Flat Stanley is actually much more enriching-students don't have to wonder where to begin or what to write about. The sender and the recipient already have a mutual friend, Flat Stanley. Writing and learning becomes easier, flows naturally, and tends to be more creative. This is what teachers call an "authentic" literacy project, in that kids are inspired to write of their own passion and excitement about the project, and given the freedom to write about many things through the rubric of the Flat Stanley character.

Hog Hilton - A Powerful Learning Opportunity that Simulates Rules Governing Electron Configuration
Rating

This resource is a kinaesthetic activity that allows students to book hogs into a hypothetical hotel, called the Hog Hilton.  Students use laminated hogs on table tops to show how the rooms in the hotel will fill according to a few simple rules (which align with rules governing electron configuration in atoms).  For example, "Rule 1: Hogs are Lazy" simulates the Aufbau Principle (in which electrons will occupy the lowest available orbital.  "Hogs can't stand each other, except when Rule #1 forces them to put up with each other" also corresponds to Hund's Rule (each orbital on a sub level will accommodate one electron before any electrons are paired up).  This forces students to place one hog in each room on a sub level before they get a room mate.  "If Hogs are in the same room, they will not face each other" aligns with the Pauli Exclusion Principle (an orbital will can hold two electrons with opposite spins).  The only physical way the laminated pigs cannot face each other is if one is one is standing and the other is lying on its back.

This lesson is the first of a two-part series on the properties and uses of different materials.In Materials 1: Materials and Manufacturing, the familiar tale of The Three Little Pigs is used as an introduction to materials and manufacturing. Students examine the properties, limitations, and durability of a variety of materials, then evaluate which of the materials would be best for building a model house. If used in its entirety, this lesson could take several science class times.In Materials 2: Recycled Materials, students are introduced to the idea that some materials can be recycled.

Negative Exponents? Ugh

We use examples of a plant and a beanstalk growing exponentially and ask kids to determine the height of these plants in the future (growing at the same rate).  Students skip ahead several inputs and are forced to consider a rule to model the situation.  Next we ask students to think about how they might work backwards. If you know the height of a plant during its 9th month, how can you find it's height at the 8th and 7th months. Finally we ask them to consider how tall these plants were before they were purchased (again assuming that they were growing at the same rate).  Students use this context to see the pattern of powers and develop an understanding of why positive whole numbers raised to a negative exponent result in a fraction (not a negative number).

Students will use a pully system (one provided by teacher or created from VEX equipment if have it available) to measure components and identify relationships between the three components of Newton's 2nd Law (force, mass, acceleration).  In this lesson, students will change either mass or force to calculate acceleration of a cart over a specific distance.  Students will be able to identify the relationship between force and acceleration for Part A of the activity and then the relationship between mass and acceleration for Part B.  In Part A of the activity, students will change the force pulling on the cart and keep the mass of the cart the same to calculate acceleration.  In Part B of the activity, students will change the mass of the cart and keep the pulling force the same to calculate acceleration.  Students will gather their data and constuct a graph representing the data gathered and identifying the relationship between acceleration and mass or force.  I have added the component that once all data is gathered from the experiment, students will write and document their results in a full lab report.
