In this activity students will work with ice to learn math concepts: perimeter, diameter, circumference, adding decimals, and linear measurement. This math lesson will evolve into an inquiry-based study to determine if the dimensions of the ice will make a difference in the way the ice floats in the water. The inquiry lesson may lead to further inquiry-based investigations for extended learning in ... Full description.

CoVis is a community of thousands of students, over a hundred teachers, and dozens of researchers all working to improve science education in middle and high schools. They do this by approaching the learning of science more like the doing of science: rather than depend on the teaching of facts, they seek to reproduce the question-centered, collaborative practices of scientists, using advanced communication ...
