Kapp, Sebastian; Thees, Michael; Strzys, Martin P.; Beil, Fabian; Kuhn, Jochen; Amiraslanov, Orkhan; Javaheri, Hamraz; Lukowicz, Paul; Lauer, Frederik; Rheinländer, Carl; Wehn, Norbert – Physics Teacher, 2019
During the last decade the development of modern digital media such as smartphones and tablet computers has enabled new experimental possibilities in STEM education. Besides these now nearly ubiquitous devices, the fields of virtual reality (VR) and augmented reality (AR) also made huge progress and reached education. In this paper we introduce an…

Erickson, Brian; Crews, Tracy – Science Teacher, 2019
This article describes a five-lesson curriculum that introduces students to the primary cause, multiple predicted impacts, and possible solutions to ocean acidification. It builds upon the strengths of over 90 existing teaching resources on the topic while also contributing new ways to teach about the impacts and solutions to this pressing…

Limpanuparb, Taweetham; Kanithasevi, Siradanai; Lojanarungsiri, Maytouch; Pakwilaikiat, Puh – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
We discuss the use of a simple piece of equipment made of a 50 mL syringe attached to a 2 mL graduated pipet to demonstrate Boyle's law and Charles's law. A plot of the hydrostatic pressure against the reciprocal of the volume of the gas read from the equipment is linear as discussed in the paper and gives the atmospheric pressure at the…

Boys, Alexander J.; Walsh, Mark C. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
Elementary and middle school science curricula typically focus on generating an interest in science and engineering through the use of hands-on activities that demonstrate specific concepts. Laboratory activities designed in this manner often circumvent some of the main challenges that engineers and scientists face, namely balancing advantages and…

Pavesi, Laura – Physics Teacher, 2019
The phenomenon of emerging water jets from the holes of containers has been extensively studied; nevertheless, it continues to inspire researchers and teachers. The main aspects of the recent studies concern: the range of the jets trajectories; the extension of Bernoulli's equation, of which Torricelli's expression represents an ideal situation,…

Hahn, Marcelo Dumas; Cruz, Frederico Alan de Oliveira; Carvalho, Paulo Simeão – Physics Teacher, 2019
When sound waves are taught at the secondary level, the speed of propagation of sound is one of the most important characteristics to be analyzed. However, it is very common in textbooks that the value of sound speed in air is considered constant regardless of the experimental conditions. The great question is that since sound is a mechanical…

Coletta, Vincent P.; Bernardin, Josh; Pascoe, Daniel; Hoemke, Anatol – Physics Teacher, 2019
Physics instructors recognize the value of kinesthetic experience in learning fundamental physics concepts. We describe a kinesthetic experiment appropriate for both college and high school physics students. The experiment helps students achieve an intuitive understanding of Newton's second law in a way they find quite enjoyable. It was devised by…

Perry, Anthony; Estabrooks, Leigh – Science Teacher, 2019
The "Next Generation Science Standards" ("NGSS") emphasize integrating engineering design into the science classroom (NGSS Lead States 2013). Inventing is an authentic and relevant classroom approach, regardless of content area, located at one end of a design continuum opposite from routine problem solving. Invention, at the…

de Jesus, V. L. B.; Pérez, C. A. C.; de Oliveira, A. L.; Sasaki, D. G. G. – Physics Education, 2019
Currently, the number of smartphones with an embedded gyroscope sensor has been increasing due games whose performance relies on 3D augmented reality. In general, teaching papers on the gyroscope sensor address very simple spatial configuration, where the fixed rotation axis coincides to the z-axis of the smartphone. This work presents five…

Lopper, Matthew E. – Journal of Chemical Education, 2019
This paper describes a responsive, digital periodic table that has been specifically designed as a visual aid for high school or college chemistry classrooms and lecture halls. The periodic table runs in a web browser and can therefore be used in any classroom that has a digital projector and screen. It features click-to-highlight table cells that…

Price, Argenta; Wieman, Carl; Perkins, Katherine – Science Teacher, 2019
Interactive science simulations (sims) have become popular tools for science educators, and research confirms that sims can improve student learning (Rutten, van Joolingen, and van der Veen 2012). Over the past 15 years, the PhET Interactive Simulations project at the University of Colorado Boulder has created a collection of 150 open (free)…

Pearlman, Melanie – Science Teacher, 2019
Spices, of course, do not make a meal, but they make a meal more enjoyable and memorable. Games do the same, allowing teachers to interact with their students in a different way than they normally do. They also have the potential to challenge and assess students' understanding of content. Games allow teachers to "play" with their…

Giamellaro, Michael; Blackburn, Jackson; Honea, Molly; LaPlante, Jacob – Science Teacher, 2019
There is substantial evidence to suggest that social interactions, and discourse in particular, are the strongest drivers of learning (National Academies 2018), suggesting that teachers need to promote productive talk in their classrooms (NRC 2012). While the "Next Generation Science Standards" practice of "obtaining, evaluating,…

Reynolds, Julie – Science Teacher, 2019
A lesson that focuses on the intricate co-evolution of flowers with their pollinators is one way to help students learn the delicate balance in nature and help ensure that our actions do not upset this balance. In this lesson students use the engineering design process to engineer a flower that is a perfect model for its chosen pollinator. Next,…

Carrigan, James; Bodzin, Alec; Hammond, Thomas; Rutzmoser, Scott; Popejoy, Kate; Farina, William – Science Teacher, 2019
Mobile geospatial technologies enable high school students to engage in authentic scientific data collection and analysis that promote spatial-thinking and reasoning skills, as well as problem-solving in a school's local environment. We developed and implemented an Ecological Services investigation aligned to the Next Generation Science Standards…
