The amount of energy used in a home is greatly impacted by the type of materials used in constructing the home. In particular, the thermal conductivity of the materials will affect how quickly heat is allowed to enter or...
This is a collection of online physics courses designed for elementary and middle school teachers. Current courses are on light, electricity and magnetism, temperature, heat, and energy, and force, motion, and energy....
This web page, authored and curated by David P. Stern, provides an elementary introduction and overview of potential and kinetic energy, and a discussion of transformations of other forms of energy. A lesson plan and...
This case study uses the example of ice in fresh and salt water- in which type of water would ice melt more quickly? The lesson helps students explore the concepts of density, heat transfer, conduction and convection....
The Materials Science and Technology Teacher's Workshop (MAST) provides this activity to compare the amount of energy given off in combustion reactions. The experiment has two different objectives. The first is the...
The Materials Science and Technology Teacher's Workshop (MAST) provides this activity to look at the ways in which energy is released in chemical reactions. The class will examine plaster of paris, bromthymol blue and...
The Materials Science and Technology Teacher's Workshop (MAST) provides this activity to support solar energy curriculum. The goal of the experiment is to allow students to create a device to cook food with energy from...
The Materials Science and Technology Teacher's Workshop (MAST) provides this activity to illustrate the heat energy that is given off during the oxidation of iron. The class will analyze commercial hand warmers and the...
The Materials Science and Technology Teacher's Workshop (MAST) provides this demonstration on the phase transition of high carbon steel. The crystalline structure of iron is different at different temperatures, and...
