I’m slowly moving all my web pages into my WordPress blog formatted style pages (they’ll all be indexed for my search box). Below is a list of my web pages related to science education.
Pages generally of interest to students
- A video clip of ice skating to analyze conservation of angular momentum.
- Sunset observations lab
Pages generally of interest to teachers
- Curriculum Mapping in the High School Physics Class (as presented at the National AAPT meeting on July 28, 2009).
- Using TI graphing calculators in a science classroom (as presented at the NorCal/Nevada AAPT meeting on November 9, 2008).
- “Penny Diffusion” lab
- Environmental Science (includes AP ES textbook recommendations)
- Levers and the Human Body worksheets
- www.EmbracingChallenge.net has great teacher resources, in addition to a great archive of several NSTA email lists.
- “Physics on the Subway”
- Speed of Sound Labs
- Tools for science and science teaching
- Fish-eye camera in a globe, a way of seeing solar movement. This project is under development, feel free to watch the development.
General interest science pages
- Earth Science pages and links
- Climate Change (aka Global Warming) positions of science organizations
- A great site on Daylight Saving Time
- NASA J-Track 3D satellite simulator, includes over 500 satellites showing their real-time position, or you can speed it up. Or, here’s another version, SpaceBook, if the NASA one is not running on your machine (actually, I like the SpaceBook version better–be sure to click on the “Status” tab and uncheck “Nonoperational” to see how many of our satellites are no longer useful). Whichever version you use, be sure to zoom in and out, and rotate the earth.
- Satellite image stitching using Google Earth.
- Solar Calendar, Berkeley Marina. Set up a planetarium program on your computer using the Solar Calendar as the background for the stars.
- Clear Sky Chart for Berkeley, CA for the next two days.
