Downs, Nathan; Parisi, Alfio; McDonnell, Brendan; Thornton, Peter – Teaching Science, 2008
The article presents a technique to measure the ultraviolet index using a personal hand-held ultraviolet meter to illustrate concepts of physics. Measurements of the erythemally effective (sun-burning) direct solar beam, diffuse skylight, and total global ultraviolet irradiance are converted to daily ultraviolet index measurements. Daily…

Kidman, Gillian – Teaching Science, 2008
Of concern is an international trend of students' increasing reluctance to choose science courses in both their final years of secondary school and tertiary levels of education. Research into the phenomenon indicates an influencing factor to be the "uninteresting curriculum" (OECD, 2006) of school science. This article presents an…

Lake, David – Teaching Science, 2008
Science in rural and remote schools has received unenviable press around the world. The political and administrative spotlight has fallen on the inadequate physical resources available to rural schools (Hawkes, Halverson and Brockmueller, 2002), inadequate professional development (Howley, Chadwick and Howley, 2002), and the problems…

Downs, Nathan; Turner, Joanna; Parisi, Alfio; Spence, Jenny – Teaching Science, 2008
A technique for using highlighter ink as an ultraviolet dosimeter has been developed for use by secondary school students. The technique requires the students to measure the percentage of colour fading in ink drawn onto strips of paper that have been exposed to sunlight, which can be calibrated to measurements of the ultraviolet irradiance using…
