Interactive Science Sites

Lots of time left for you to get on that computer during vacation and do some surfing, especially in the area of science. With the Internet expanding by leaps and bounds, we need to be very discriminating as to the sites we choose for our students to surf. Science sites abound, but the ones that the students seem to learn the most from and find the most motivating are the sites that have interactive features.I have gleaned some for you to share with your students and have included annotations so you can be even more discriminating.


* Fire a Cannon
-This virtual experiment is designed to let the student measure the relation between muzzle velocity (which determines projectile energy), gravitational potential and the effects of frictional drag caused by wind speed blowing opposite to the direction the projectile is moving in. They work the cannon on-screen, adjusting various parameters. http://jersey.uoregon.edu/vlab/Cannon/index.html

* Dozens of Interactive Physics Lessons - (Excellent!) Physics 2000 Table of Contents of this site includes interactive experiments for X-rays, CAT Scans. Microwaves, Electromagnetic Theory, Effect of Electric Forces on Water, Lasers, TV Screens, Laptop Screens, Interference Experiments, Bose-Einstein Condensate, Electromagnetic Waves and Particles, Quantum Atom, Polarization, Elements as Atoms, The Periodic Table, Isotopes and Radioactivity, and more. This is a site that you will spend hours interacting with and learning about the physical world. http://www.Colorado.EDU/physics/2000/xray/index.html

* Operate an Electron Microscope - These pages use JavaScript to put you at the control panel of a virtual Scanning Electron Microscope (SEM). The first time you use the JavaScript SEM, you should enter as a Microscopy Student to receive all the instructions. You can then switch to Expert Microscopist mode. Expert Microscopists have a much larger selection of samples to examine. http://www.pbrc.hawaii.edu/kunkel (click on SEM)

* Tour the Human Body -You may click on any of 10 systems for animations, images, descriptions, parts, and more, complete with a search engine for the site. http://www.innerbody.com/htm/body.html

* Calculate Sun & Moon Data - You can calculate complete Sun and Moon Data for One Day, Table of Sunrise/Sunset, Moonrise/Moonset, or Twilight Times for an Entire Year, amount of Moon Illumination, Phases of the Moon, Fraction of the Moon Illuminated, Eclipses, Recent and Upcoming Eclipses of the Sun and Moon, a Lunar Eclipse Computer, the Positions of the Sun and Moon, the Altitude and Azimuth of the Sun or Moon During One Day, Position of the Sun at Noon for Washington, D.C., Data for Solar System Bodies and Bright Stars, access a Web Version of MICA - Multi-Year Interactive Computer Almanac which includes positions, rise/set/transit, physical ephemeredes - plus sidereal time & Julian dates, Celestial Navigation Data that provides computed altitudes and azimuths and other data for an assumed position and time, Orbital Elements of Asteroids that provides an online interface to a database of orbital elements and other properties of known solar system small bodies (NEOs, main-belt asteroids, Centaurs, trans-Neptunian objects, but not comets). http://riemann.usno.navy.mil/AA/data/

* Calculate Sunrise/Sunset Data - Sunrise/Sunset/Twilight and Moonrise/Moonset/Phase can be displayed for any area. http://tycho.usno.navy.mil/srss.html

* Find a Spot on Earth - TerraServer will take you exploring our planet by studying maps and images via satellite. Not surprisingly, the first place many people visit is their own neighborhood and they always try to find their own house. You also might want to take a look at famous places such as our National Parks or your favorite sports parks. TerraServer is also a valuable resource for researchers who wish to study geography, environmental issues or archeological mysteries. The view is via satellite. http://terraserver.microsoft.com/default.asp

* Solar System - Solar System Live is an interactive Orrery of the Web. You can view the entire Solar System, or just the inner planets (through the orbit of Mars). Controls allow you to set time and date, viewpoint, observing location, orbital elements to track an asteroid or comet, and a variety of other parameters. Click on the title of any control to display a help page explaining it, or go directly to the help table of contents. You can compose a request with custom settings and save the results in your browser's hotlist or bookmark table, allowing direct access to Solar System Live with all the controls preset to your own preferences. http://www.fourmilab.ch/solar/solar.html

* Sky Watching - Each day's segment is designed to guide your eye to something you can see that night, or the next morning before dawn. It might be a constellation, a star, or a planet. Or it might be a celestial event, such as an eclipse. Or, just for fun, on some days you might be taken on a trip to another planet, to give you the view from there. http://earthsky.com/Features/Skywatching/

* Ask An Expert - Askanexpert.com connects you with hundreds of real world experts, ranging from astronauts to zookeepers. These experts have volunteered to answer your questions for free! http://www.askanexpert.com/

~ Including the Physically Handicapped with Sheila Estes ~
Expanding Horizons With Talking Books

TEXTBOOKS ON TAPE ~ In the last issue I discussed the service offered by the National Library for the Blind and Physically Handicapped with its wide variety of talking books. I would like to expand that service with resources that include textbooks on tape. Talking Tapes/Textbooks on Tape is a 60-year-old non-profit organization devoted to anyone qualified under the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) or Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA). They strive to bring the printed word to those with physical, cognitive, visual, or learning disabilities. There is no annual membership fee or contracts required. Since all textbooks are recorded on two-track cassette tapes, no special listening equipment is needed. They will record any book not in their library at no cost. However the average time to record a book is from one to eight months so it is necessary to apply for this as soon as the need is apparent. An application can be requested by calling 314-646-0500.
More information about this unique service can be seen at www.talkingtapes.org.

Taped books are only $4.00 per tape to purchase or $2.00 per tape to rent. Books are typically longer than one tape. Rental tapes are due back at the end of the term. Another place to check out is Recording for the Blind and Dyslexic or RFB&D. It boasts a 75,000 volume Master Tape Library and is the largest educational resource of its kind in the world. Borrowers may keep books for one year. As with the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped, the RFB&D tapes require a specially adapted 4-track tape player. Two types of membership are available, an individual membership and an Annual Institutional Membership (AIM). An individual membership costs $75 the first year and $25 every year thereafter.
To check out the details of this organization, go to: http://www.tea.state.tx.us/Textbooks/whatsnew/rfbndinfo.htm. The page of the home organization is located athttp://www.rfbd.org/ but is under construction at this time and offers few details.

Yet another technological breakthrough is offering Web-Braille. It is now possible for Braille readers who have access to a computer and a refreshable Braille display or a Braille embosser to access nearly 3,000 Braille book titles on the Internet for download or online use. This amazing service is another offered by the National Library Service for the Blind and Physically Handicapped.
For more about this unique service, go to http://www.loc.gov/nls/nls-wb.html. Running a search for audio textbooks or Braille textbooks will offer a variety of links to pursue to expand horizons for those who have the need of the services. These organizations are helping to make the learning process much easier for students with special needs and are well worth the effort to check them out.

What's a Tangent? :

In the fall of 1995, I was speaking to a producer at CBC Radio who was preparing me to participate in a coast-to-coast discussion on wild birds. I was to speak after two other bird watchers. The producer was trying to explain the dynamics of the discussion. She said: " While the other two are speaking, you'll be able to hear them -- but they won't be able to hear you, so you can't say anything to them -- so don't try to participate in the discussion while the others are speaking." Then she paused, sighed and said: "It's pretty complicated, I know ----" I cut her off and said: "It's not complicated for me. I teach college math. I understand perfectly what you said." She took a breath and blurted out "What's a tangent???" Then she caught herself and apologized for being so direct. She explained that all her life she'd wanted to know what a tangent is -- and no one could ever explain it so she could understand it. I assured her that I always welcome the opportunity to teach someone -- anyone actually -- about math. See, I figure, the more people who understand the math all around us, the better the drivers will be. A knowledge of geometry makes one a better driver, and bowler, and budgeter etc. -- but I seem to be going off on a tangent.... so back to the topic. I said: "Have you ever cut out a circle with a scissors?" She said: "Yes." I asked: "How can you do that? A scissors can only cut a straight line." Then I asked: "Have you ever driven a traffic circle?" She said: "Yes." I asked: How can you do that? A car can only drive a straight line." Then I asked: "Have you ever seen someone riding the waves on a surfboard?" She said: "Yes." "How can that be?" I asked. "A surfboard is a straight line. A wave is a curve." By then, she saw the picture. A segment of a tangent is what you cut, drive, or surf. The tangent in math actually touches the curve in a single teeny-tiny point, but humans can't cut, drive or surf that precisely, so we actually use a segment of the tangent line. We've all seen that string artwork which defines a circle using straight lines. Those lines are tangents. So tangents are essential to the shape of the curve. This is why Isaac Newton and his buddies invented Calculus.
That's why we study derivatives. Let's think about that word for a minute. It stems from "derive" which means: to obtain or draw from a source. In other words, when we find a function's first derivative, we get information about the tangents that define the curve of the function -- the lines from which the function's curve is derived.

Reflection on the Mona Lisa Web Site

Leonardo's enigmatic Mona Lisa portrait, painted in the 1500's, coupled with numerous researched museum links served as the cultural catalyst for an ongoing evolving inner city Bronx high school student web research project. Begun in 1997, as part of the ThinkQuest Challenge, for developing a collaborative student web project focused around a particular problem construct "Why is the Mona Lisa Smiling?" in partnership with high school peers from Borlange Sweden initially reacted, responded and reflected on Lillian Schwartz's research about the identity of Mona Lisa. Schwartz's contention, that Mona was Leonardo himself, led the students to include museum resources as part of their scientific inquiry into the validity of Schwartz's compelling thesis. The inner city Bronx HS students who created the web site had little if any personal experiences visiting actual Museum Resources in culturally rich NYC; but through the research process involved in investigating Schwartz's theory, students became online virtual museum visitors. Among the museum web Sites they toured and integrated within the project were: Getty Museum, Boston Science Museum, Science and Technology Museum of Milan, The Vatican, The Exploratorium, Franklin Institute and The Smithsonian Institution. In turn, the students' museum explorations enriched and expanded their initial Why is the Mona Lisa Smiling project, which grew to include further aspects of Leonardo's talents visions and inventions, and connections to other artists and scientists. These were identified in the Museum collection through virtual museum visits. Indeed in May 2000, when Microsoft issued its NYC Beyond 2000 Challenge, the Bronx HS Students confidently selected the arts arena as the content area for their ArtiFAQ 2100 Web Project. They were able to use museum web resource to address the challenge by using museums to look back in Art History. They then built on the achievements of art history to predict art social trends 2100. These predictions are presented in the form of Digital Art Creations.

Tips For The Frugal Teacher

Teachers Resource Recycling - Start a teachers' recycling box in your staff room. Teachers place materials that they no longer want in the box and anyone is free to take these materials.

Bulletin Board Borders - Butcher paper can be cut out in thinstrips and decorated by students. Laminate them and you can make them last.

Storing Bulletin Board Borders - Use a regular wire hanger and some clothes pins to store your borders. Use the clothespins to grab on to the bottom of the hanger and to the top of your borders. You can hold four of five borders on one hanger.

Frugal Teaching - Keep a master list of consumables and items that you commonly buy for the classroom. Be sure to include the prices. Then you can tell when a sale item is really a bargain.

Frugal Lunch - Don't buy in the school cafeteria. Instead, bring items for school lunches on Monday for the week. Bread, fruit, drinks ... can all be placed in a staff room fridge.

How Can MITA Improve Learning?

People ask me all the time, "What is MITA?" How does it work in class? Simply put though, MITA helps students to awaken their past and use their talents to learn more. MITA actually works in any class, but I'll show a secondary school theme to illustrate.

The MITA (Multiple Intelligence Teaching Approach) model was created to bring learning alive for all students. In MITA your race, creed and gender work for you.

To illustrate, let's look at a lesson theme on photosynthesis. MITA simply unleashes students' amazing brainpower as tools for building knowledge. Imagine taking talents, abilities and interests to class, and you have begun to catch MITA's vision.

In phase one, students and teachers create questions to explore content. Good questions help students to map interior worlds and motivate learners to explore new lands. Students create questions to focus their investigations on one aspect of the theme. Photosynthesis questions might include:
a). If photosynthesis were a musical composition, what would it sound like or what song would it be?
b). How would you create a pantomime or tableau to illustrate photosynthesis?
c). How does the tranformative role of chloroplasts resemble an aspect of a close friend's life?
d). What are your feelings about a personally transforming experience similar to photosynthesis processes?
e). How would you represent photosynthesis in sketches, images or structures, without words?

The idea is to start with students. A sample activity for generating students' motivation and creating wonder, might be as simple as asking questions the unit, that open windows into students prior knowledge on the topic to be learned:

• Photosynthesis to you is _______________________?
• How does photosynthesis influence your life?
• What key question would you like to ask a famous scientist about this topic?

In phase two, students and teachers identify specific learning objectives. When they know exactly where they are headed students are more likely to arrive there successfully. Let's list 4 learning objectives for our lesson theme.
The learner will:
1) List all phases of photosynthesis processes.
2) Write a 500 word essay describing all phases of photosynthesis.
3) Create a poster comparing photosynthesis to three similar scientific processes.
4) Interview an expert on the relevance of photosynthesis to environmental stewardship.

In phase three, the class creates a rubric, which identifies exactly how each assignment is assessed. Rubrics create signposts and light pathways so that students can reach new destinations. Rubrics simply show exact criteria used for grades assigned.

Faculty and students collaborate so both sides share similar criteria. You might require proof that:
• ensures deep thought about research on photosynthesis.
• enables application of readings to real life problems.
• prepares discussion questions for class discussion.
• reflects ideas and insights regarding photosynthesis.
• assists theoretic ideas transformed into practical applications.
• encourages meaningful inquiries as a method of personal learning.
• indicates diverse intelligences used to draw conclusions from ideas researched.

Students would use this list as a guide for their work and would indicate how they achieved each criteria listed.

In phase four, teachers assign an assessment to encourage multiple approaches to any destination by creating student choices along converging highways. For instance, students might identify three natural processes, which use energy from the sun to convert one substance into another form, as does photosynthesis.

Assessment tasks chosen by students to demonstrate understanding, might include multiple intelligence tasks such as: hands-on activities; models that show process; interviews with scientists; peer teaching; conferencing with members of the community; mini-lectures; detailed visuals to describe each stage of photosynthesis; experience charts to show students' relationship to the topic; games and simulations created by students to teach photosynthesis; computer-assisted demonstrations; centers that students created for eight ways of expressing the topic; experimentation and investigation results and records; role-plays; creative problem solving; independent studies and research projects; semantic mapping; portfolios that show one month's progression; learning logs; interest and ability inventories for each aspect of photosynthesis; or, visualizations and imagery to reflect on information.

In phase five, teachers and students reflect together in order to improve learning achievement. Through regular reflection we discover what strategies worked well and what lesson part failed to hit its mark. Reflection is a regular commitment of a MITA lesson in the same way mechanics inspect airplanes to ensure each flight's success.

One excellent reflective task requires students to fill out an EXIT slip as a ticket out of the lesson. Simple questions for this task might be. What I know about _____ is _____; What I would still like to know is______; What I think I am required to know is _______.

So if your lesson lists a problem to solve or opens with key questions, MITA lessons may work for you. Faculty, parents and students all over the world, are using MITA to ask: "How are you smart?" rather than, "How smart are you?" MITA simply helps students to reach back into their pasts, value all present abilities, and leap forward with confidence to embrace future dreams.
