This is a math-science integrated unit about spectrographs. Learners will find and calculate the angle that light is transmitted through a holographic diffraction grating using trigonometry. After finding this angle, the students will build their... (View More)

Audience: High school

This is a unit of 8 sessions about the Sun-Earth system. Learners will construct a model to show the relative size and scale of the Sun-Earth system, investigate the visible and electromagnetic spectrums, discuss solar flares and solar weather,... (View More)

Audience: Middle school

This is an activity about constructing and conducting experiments to determine what part(s) of the spectrum cause a reaction to ultraviolet light-sensitive beads. Learners will design an experiment, present this design for peer review, make... (View More)

This is an activity about whether different wavelengths (colors) in the light spectrum heat objects differently. The activity also focuses on the process used to explore scientific questions pertaining to this topic, thereby developing tools and... (View More)

In this lesson, learners will create a series of predictions about the nature and behavior of light and color, collect data on the same questions and make conclusions using evidence from the exploration. This is lesson 1 in a collection entitled, In... (View More)
