PART 2- REASONING AND ANALYSIS

 

 

PHYSICAL SCIENCE/INTEGRATED MATHEMATICS

Scientific Notation- Learn the basic principles of scientific notation. Javascript's will enable you to practice converting any number from basic notation to scientific notation. Ideal for gifted and talented middle school students. Now includes multiplication and division using scientific notation.

Explain it With Molecules Why does ice float?-- How does soap work? -- Why is diamond so hard?-- Why do carcinogens like nicotine cause cancer? -- Why is a salt crystal cubic in shape? -- This is an interactive activity using the JMol applet which allows students to interact with molecules. No plug-in is needed.. ---

Mass- Measure the mass of an object using a triple beam balance. Start early with this one -- gifted and talented grade 4.

Mass vs. Weight- Mass and weight are often confused by many students. Learn the difference and try some challenging problems

Volume - Measure volume using a graduated cylinder. Start early with volume -- gifted and talented grade 4.

Density of a Solid - Learn to calculate the density of an unknown solid from knowing its mass and volume.

Density of a Liquid - Learn to calculate the density of an unknown liquid from knowing its mass and volume using a graduated cylinder and triple beam balance. Learn what a hydrometer is, and what it can do.

Density Challenge - Great page for gifted and talented students! Some excellent challenging problems. Volume of a cylinder problem ...

Mass -Volume -Density Acitivty using the GATES PROJECT-- CENTRAL PARK

HERE ARE SOME GREAT ACTIVITIES TO INTRODUCE YOUR STUDENTS TO THE WORLD OF MOLECULAR MODELING --

Introduction to Molecular Modeling - (Requires download of Chime plug-in See below if for Java enabled version). This introduction to molecular modeling also provides a review of basic structures in organic chemistry studied in middle school. This is an ideal starting point for a science project --. Gifted and Talented grades 5 and up. Also see: What is the Relationship between Molecular Modeling and Mathematics Activity.

Java enabled version:

Introduction to Molecular Modeling for K-12
What is the Relationship between Molecular Modeling and Mathematics

MathMol Tutorials- Part I: 1-Dimension, 2-Dimension, 3-Dimension - Part II: Geometry of Two Dimensions Part III: Geometry of 3 Dimensions - Part IV: Geometry of Molecules.

Explain it With Molecules Why does ice float?-- How does soap work? -- Why is diamond so hard?-- Why do carcinogens like nicotine cause cancer? -- Why is a salt crystal cubic in shape? -- This is an interactive activity using the JMol applet which allows students to interact with molecules.

What is Nanotechnology? You have probably already heard the term. But, what exactly is Nanotechnology, and will it contribute to the next big technology wave? More on Nanotechnology

World of Molecules- Information on antioxidant, fuel, solvent, molecules of color, drug molecules and more. View molecules in 3-D.

Physics 2000- Physics 2000, is an interactive journey through modern physics! Have fun learning visually and conceptually about 20th Century science and high-tech devices.

Powers of Ten - View the Milky Way at 10 million light years from the Earth. Then move through space towards the Earth in successive orders of magnitude. After that, begin to move from the actual size of a leaf into a microscopic world that reveals leaf cell walls, the cell nucleus, chromatin, DNA and finally, into the subatomic universe of electrons and protons. This is a great site for all gifted and talented ages.

LIFE SCIENCES

Molecular Expressions - go where no microscope has gone before -- - one of the Web's largest collections of color photographs taken through an optical microscope (commonly referred to as "photo-micro-graphs) . Something for everyone here.

The Whole Frog Dissection - Computers can't teach everything in anatomy, but they can teach some things better, either by themselves or through synergy with conventional methods. Try out this award-winning virtual frog- as a case in point. Gifted and Talented - grade 6 - Life Science.

Human Anatomy Online Skeletal, Muscular, Digestive, Lymphatic, Endocrine, Nervous, Cardiovascular, Reproductive and Urinary Systems... Includes extensive images and descriptions.

Cell Biology Animations -- Amino Acids and Proteins, Cell Structure, Diffusion, DNA, Glycolysis, Krebs Cylce, Meiosis, Mitosis, pH, Photosynthesis and Water.

Virtual Pig Dissection - Although a great alternative to the actual dissection, be prepared for the actual graphics. Contains study guides and quizzes. Good for Gifted and Talented High School Students.

Healthline Body Maps --NEW --BodyMaps is an interactive visual search tool that allows users to explore the human body in 3-D. With easy-to-use navigation, users can search multiple layers of the human anatomy, view systems and organs down to their smallest parts, and understand in detail how the human body works.
