View Resource Seismic Waves and the Slinky: A Guide for Teachers

This teacher's guide is intended to provide suggestions on how to teach about seismic waves. It provides information on the types and properties of seismic waves and instructions for using some simple materials, especially the 'slinky', to demonstrate seismic wave characteristics and wave propagation. These activities can be performed by the students themselves, or as demonstrations by the...

View Resource Walk-Run Activity: An S and P Wave Travel Time Simulation

In this activity, students use walking and running speeds to simulate the difference in S- and P-wave travel times, a property used in the location of earthquakes. They will construct travel time curves using their measurements of walking and running arrival times and calculate the epicenter of a hypothetical earthquake by using triangulation.

View Resource Purdue University: The Product Lifecycle Management SME Project

The Product Lifecycle Management Center of Excellence from Purdue University contains a number of downloadable modules and related documents on product lifecycle management. PLM is a comprehensive information system that coordinates all aspects of a product from initial concept to its eventual retirement. Sometimes called the "digital backbone" of a product, it includes the requirements phase,...

View Resource Teaching About Plate Tectonics and Faulting Using Foam Models

This teacher's guide provides directions for building three-dimensional models from foam blocks to demonstrate plate tectonic principles, plate boundary interactions and the geometry and relative motions of faulting of geologic layers. References are included.

View Resource Three-D Earth Structure Model

In this activity by Larry and Sheryl Braile, students construct a model of the Earth's interior to help them visualize its main regions (inner core, outer core, mantle, crust) and practice their problem solving and math skills. They will also calculate the volumes of each region. The two options for conducting the activity are followed by seven enrichment questions and step-by-step instructions...
