This resource from Glenbrook high school in Glenview, Illinois applies Newton's laws of motion and kinematic principles to describe and explain the movement of objects in circles. Specific applications are made to roller coasters and athletics. Newton's Universal Law of Gravitation is then presented and utilized to explain the circular and elliptical motion of planets and satellites. Each lesson resembles ... Full description.

This lesson provides students with an understanding that certain materials are attracted to magnets while others are not. It is the first in a two-lesson series on magnets. In Magnets 1: Magnetic Pick-ups, students will look at various objects, make predictions about whether they are magnetic, and then test their predictions. This exploration is an introductory activity to magnets and magnetism. Full description.

In this lesson, students will experimentally measure the strength of a magnet and graph how the strength changes as the distance from the magnet increases, and as the barrier (masking tape) is built between the magnet and an iron object. This lesson is the second in a two-lesson series on magnets. The main concept to convey in Magnets 2: How Strong is Your Magnet? is that forces can act from a distance. ... Full description.

This lesson teaches students how the motion of the Foucault pendulum proves that the earth is rotating. It will help to expand their concepts of motion, pendulums, and the gravitational force. Students will explore online resources to understand how Foucault used pendulums to show that the earth spins on its axis. Full description.

This activity gives students a hands-on look at the effects of increased water pressure and shows them how submarines work. Using a balloon and plastic water bottle, students create a neutrally buoyant diver. Then they squeeze the bottle to see how increased pressure compresses the balloon, making it heavier and causing it to sink. The activity includes an extension that has students further explore ...

This classroom activity gives students a firsthand look at how the color of a surface influences its ability to reflect or absorb heat. The printable five-page handout includes a series of inquiry-based questions to get students thinking about what they already know about albedo. There are detailed experiment directions along with a worksheet that helps students use the experiment results to obtain ... Full description.

This tutorial introduces the electromagnetic spectrum through the concepts of wavelength and amplitude. Students learn to associate various wavelength ranges with different spectral bands, and can explore images from space astronomy missions in each band. In the Activity section, they use a Java program to compare sunspots and x-ray images of the sun. This research activity introduces the concept ... Full description.
