How Can We Recycle Old Tires? (ID: 626) Print
Chemistry | Grades 9-12 | Duration: 4-5 hours | English

Tech Requirements: Java, Flash, QuickTime, Molecular Workbench

Teaching Tips
It is helpful for students to be familiar with the basics of different types of chemical bonds. The project draws on observations of physical properties of substances, so it is nice for students to handle samples such as an old tire, a plastic bottle, an aluminum or steel can, and a ceramic mug. Some students struggle to distinguishing chemical bonds from intermolecular attractions, so teachers should check in with their students on their understanding of these concepts and address them as a class if necessary. The project takes advantage of the Idea Basket tool. We recommend encouraging students early in the project to take advantage of the basket to collect and track evidence that will help them recommend how to recycle tires in the final activity.

Physical Science | Grades 6-8 | Duration: 6-7 hours | English

Tech Requirements: This version of the project requires Vernier motion probes which interface with the project.

Teaching Tips
Activity one is designed to elicit student's initial ideas about graphing and motion and students should know that they are not expected to know all of the answers. Following steps 2.3 and 2.8 is a good point to stop and have a whole class discussion about how graphs are not pictures but tell a story.
Learning Goals and Standards
The velocity of an object is the rate of change of its position. Position is defined in relation to some choice of a standard reference point and a set of reference directions.

Physical Science | Grades 6-8 | Duration: 4-5 hours | English

Tech Requirements: Java, Flash, This project is designed to use Vernier temperature probes. You can substitute temperature strips or thermometers.

Teaching Tips
Activity 1 is designed to illicit the student's initial ideas. They should be told there is no "right" answer at this point. Activity 6 then provides the opportunity for the students to reflect on what they have learned. Steps 2.2 through 2.5 really set the focus for the project: Why does a metal table leg feel colder that a styrofoam cup? The remainder of the project is collecting evidence to help the students understand the flow of heat energy from higher to lower temperature until the objects are at equilibrium.
Learning Goals and Standards
Heat moves in a predictable flow from warmer objects to cooler objects until all objects are the same temperature. Heat flows in solids by conduction. Different materials conduct heat at different rates.

Photosynthesis (ID: 2276) Print
Life Science | Grades 6-8 | Duration: 4-5 hours | English

Tech Requirements: Flash, QuickTime, MySystem

Teaching Tips
Step 1.16 and Step 2.20 do not save student work. Activity 2 focuses on energy transformation at the molecular level. Students explore how light energy is used to start chemical reactions in the chloroplast, how light energy is transformed into chemical energy, and how chemical energy is stored in glucose molecules. Step 2.16 is an experiment step using simulation. A demo or classroom discussion about how to use the simulation can help students manipulate variables and conduct experiments in this step. Step 3.6 is a MySystem step. Students often forget to choose a type of energy flowing when generating MySystem. It may take a while to load icons in the MySystem step. If icons are missing in this step, go back to Step 3.5. and come back to Step 3.6. Step 3.8 is an extra credit step for advanced students.
Learning Goals and Standards
Grade Six Ecology (Life Sciences) 5. Organisms in ecosystems exchange energy and nutrients among themselves and with the environment. As a basis for understanding this concept: a. Students know energy entering ecosystems as sunlight is transferred by producers into chemical energy through photosynthesis and then from organism to organism through food webs. b. Students know matter is transferred over time from one organism to others in the food web and between organisms and the physical environment. e. Students know the number and types of organisms an ecosystem can support depends on the resources available and on abiotic factors, such as quantities of light and water, a range of temperatures, and soil composition Resources 6. Sources of energy and materials differ in amounts, distribution, usefulness, and the time required for their formation. As a basis for understanding this concept: a. Students know the utility of energy sources is determined by factors that are involved in converting these sources to useful forms and the consequences of the conversion process. Grade 7 Cell Biology 1. All living organisms are composed of cells, from just one to many trillions, whose details usually are visible only through a microscope. As a basis for understanding this concept: b. Students know the characteristics that distinguish plant cells from animal cells, including chloroplasts and cell walls. d. Students know that mitochondria liberate energy for the work that cells do and that chloroplasts capture sunlight energy for photosynthesis.

Crime investigation: DNA onder de loep! (ID: 3589) Print
Biology | Grades 9-12 | Duration: 2-3 hours | Dutch
Teaching Tips
Dit project is bedoeld voor leerlingen uit de 3e graad ASO. In het project -Crime Investigation: DNA onder de loep- leren de studenten het begrip DNA beter kennen aan de hand van het oplossen van een moordzaak. Het is de bedoeling dat de leerlingen gedurende drie sessies werken rond DNA. In elke sessie zal een activiteit worden doorlopen. Wanneer de leerlingen vroegtijdig klaar zijn met de activiteit kunnen zij verdergaan met activiteit vier, waarin extra opdrachten zijn opgenomen. Het is de bedoeling dat u na elke sessie feedback geeft en tevens hints over de dader van de moordzaak, zodat de leerlingen aan het einde van het project de moordzaak kunnen oplossen. Voor meer informatie over het project, de doelstellingen, de koppeling met de eindtermen en didactische tips (bijvoorbeeld over het geven van feedback en de hints over de dader) verwijzen wij graag naar onze informatiebundel, die u via een mailtje naar annelies.raes@ugent.be (onderzoeker en coördinator WISE ) kunt verkrijgen.

Physics | Grades 9-12 | Duration: 4-5 hours | Dutch
Teaching Tips
De volgende eindtermen komen overeen met het project: F14, F15, F16, F17, C15, W1, W2. In een eerste activiteit krijgen de leerlingen wat info over het deeltjesmodel aan de hand van een filmpje en enkele invulvragen. Een uitvoerige behandeling van het begrip druk wordt niet gegeven. Het is dus noodzakelijk dit reeds eerder in de klas te behandelen. In de 2de activiteit onderzoeken de leerlingen zelf de verschillende enkelvoudige gaswetten (Boyle, Charles, Avogadro) aan de hand van een applet. Hier wordt ook het absolute nulpunt en de temperatuur volgens de Kelvinschaal geïntroduceerd. In de 3de activiteit wordt de ideale gaswet geïntroduceerd en kan de link gelegd worden met het vak chemie. Hier komt ook het molair volume van een gas aan bod. De oefeningen spitsen zich ook toe op chemische reacties. In een 4de activiteit wordt de ideale gaswet omgevormd tot een uitdrukking voor de dichtheid van een gas in functie van de molaire massa. Dit deel sluit goed aan bij de overige leerstof rond de dichtheid van stoffen en vloeistoffen. In een 5de activiteit wordt opnieuw de link met chemie gelegd. Hier wordt de stoichiometrie van een reactie gebruikt om berekeningen in verband met gassen uit te voeren. Indien gewenst kan een extra activiteit ingevoerd worden over de wet van Dalton. Deze kan teruggevonden worden onder de inactieve activiteiten.
Learning Goals and Standards
1) De leerlingen kunnen gassen beschrijven volgens het deeltjesmodel als deeltjes die rondzweven in een bepaalde container. 2) De leerlingen kunnen de druk linken aan het deeltjesmodel via de botsingen van de deeltjes die een kracht uitoefenen op de wand. 3) De leerlingen kunnen de 3 enkelvoudige gaswetten beschrijven, onderscheiden qua naam,omschrijven in functie van het deeltjesmodel en toepassen op alledaagse contexten. 4) De leerlingen kunnen de formule voor de ideale gaswet gebruiken in diverse berekeningen. 5) De leerlingen kunnen het molair volume van een gas definiëren. 6) De leerlingen kunnen gassen vergelijken qua dichtheid op basis van het moleculair gewicht. 7) De leerlingen kunnen de formule voor de dichtheid van een gas toepassen in berekeningen. 8) De leerlingen kunnen de ideale gaswet toepassen in stoichiometrische berekeningen van reacties waarin gassen gebruikt of gevormd worden.

Diseñando un detergente para combatir la polución marina (ID: 6173) Print
Chemistry | Grades 9-12 | Duration: 4-5 hours | Spanish
Teaching Tips
El proyecto puede servir como una introducción a los conceptos básicos de polaridad y electronegatividad aunque también podrían servir aproximaciones anteriores al tema. El proyecto se centra en la observación de los detergentes, con lo cual los estudiantes pueden mezclar agua y aceite y ver qué pasa cuando se agrega detergente. A muchos estudiantes les cuesta comprender cómo las atracciones intermoleculares ayudan a explicar (1) por qué el agua y el aceite se separan (2) cómo funcionan los detergentes; con lo cual los docentes deben ver qué concepciones tienen sus alumnos de estos conceptos y dedicar una clase al tema si fuera necesario. El proyecto aprovecha la herramienta Canasta de Ideas. Se recomienda alentar a los estudiantes a que utilicen esta herramienta al comienzo del proyecto para recolectar evidencias que les permitan diseñar un buen detergente al final de la unidad.
Learning Goals and Standards
(1g) Los estudiantes comprenderán cómo la electronegatividad y la energía de ionización se relacionan con la formación de uniones (2a) Los estudiantes comprenderán cómo los átomos se combinan para formar moléculas al compartir electrones para formar uniones covalentes o metálicas o intercambiando electrones para formar uniones iónicas. (2b) Los estudiantes conocerán que que las uniones químicas entre átomos en moléculas como H2, CH4, NH3, HCCH2, N2, y Cl2 son covalentes. (2d) Los estudiantes comprenderán que los átomos y moléculas en los líquidos se mueven de forma aleatoria formando patrones relativos a cada uno porque las fuerzas intermoleculares son muy débiles como para poder sostener a los átomos o moléculas en estado sólido. (2h) Los estudiantes identificarán sólidos y líquidos unidos por fuerzas de van der Waals o uniones de puente de hidrógeno (6b) Los estudiantes comprenderán como describir el proceso de disolución a nivel molecular valiéndose del concepto de movimiento molecular aleatorio.

Teaching Tips
General Suggestions:

Students will benefit from signposting before the start of each day, e.g., being asked to reach certain steps and activities.

There are extra credit steps in the project (Activity 8) for advanced students, but preparing off-line activities and assignments may also be useful for teachers to accommodate the range of students' abilities and speed.

Activity 1 and Activity 7 are assessment items that may be used by teachers in conjunction with their existing assessments. Most items are completed in pairs, but one item allows for individual completion.

Some suggestions from teachers who have run the project:

  • Step 2.4: A classroom discussion with the map will help students focus on the important parts of the map.
  • Step 4.8: The simulation may take a while to load depending on the computer/network speed, and there may be several seconds with a blank screen before the active loading screen appears, so students may think there is something wrong. Also, it may take a while for the molecules to come back together in the simulation after clicking "remove cup of hot water," so ask students to be patient.

How can we clean marine pollution? (ID: 7087) Print
Chemistry | Grades 9-12 | Duration: 4-5 hours | English
Teaching Tips
The project can serve as an introduction to the basics of polarity and electronegativity, although prior exposure to these topics can be helpful. The project draws on everyday observations of detergents, so it is nice for students to handle/shake bottles of oil and water and then investigate what happens when detergent (Dawn works fine) is added. Some students struggle to understand how intermolecular attractions help explain (1) why oil and water separate and (2) how detergents function; so teachers should check in with their students on their understanding of these concepts and address them as a class if necessary. The project takes advantage of the Idea Basket tool. We recommend encouraging students early in the project to take advantage of the basket to collect and track evidence that will help them recommend appropriate use of detergents in the final activity.
Learning Goals and Standards
(1g) Students know how electronegativity and ionization energy relate to bond formation (2a) Students know atoms combine to form molecules by sharing electrons to form covalent or metallic bonds or by exchanging electrons to form ionic bonds. (2b) Students know chemical bonds between atoms in molecules such as H2, CH4, NH3, HCCH2, N2, and Cl2 are covalent (2d) Students know the atoms and molecules in liquids move in a random pattern relative to one another because the intermolecular forces are too weak to hold the atoms or molecules in a solid form. (2h) Students know how to identify solids and liquids held together by van der Waals forces or hydrogen bonding (6b) Students know how to describe the dissolving process at the molecular level by using the concept of random molecular motion.

Plate Tectonics with Automated Essay Guidance (ID: 18449) Print
Earth Science | Grades 6-8 | Duration: 6-7 hours | English

Tech Requirements: Molecular Workbench, MySystem, Draw Tool

Teaching Tips
General Suggestions:

Students will benefit from signposting before the start of each day, e.g., being asked to reach certain steps and activities.

There are extra credit steps in the project (Activity 8) for advanced students, but preparing off-line activities and assignments may also be useful for teachers to accommodate the range of students' abilities and speed.

Activity 1 and Activity 7 are assessment items that may be used by teachers in conjunction with their existing assessments. Most items are completed in pairs, but one item allows for individual completion.

Some suggestions from teachers who have run the project:

  • Step 2.4: A classroom discussion with the map will help students focus on the important parts of the map.
  • Step 4.8: The simulation may take a while to load depending on the computer/network speed, and there may be several seconds with a blank screen before the active loading screen appears, so students may think there is something wrong. Also, it may take a while for the molecules to come back together in the simulation after clicking "remove cup of hot water," so ask students to be patient.
