A great article on Big Think about NASA's new ability to take dual images of the sun giving them the ability to monitor sunspot activities and more. This is the first panoramic view of the sun released by NASA.
Information for Teachers
You’re just a click away from even more powerful teaching.
You want to help your students to learn more math and science. So do we. That’s why we’ve spent over 15 years using technology to bring science and math ideas alive.
The best part about it? Hundreds of our resources are free, research-based, and available for you to use today. As a non-profit organization, we’re committed to quality science and math. And we’re focused on showing the world how technology can lead to better learning.
So how can you help your students learn? Try one of these easy ways:
Find free activities for your students
Looking for great ways to teach complex science and math concepts? Let our Activity Finder help. Our standards-based activities cover a huge variety of science topics and include time-tested math interactives. Our models and simulations can make complicated topics simple. And most of our activities let you see assessment results after students use the activities, making alignment with your lessons quick and easy.
Put your probes and sensors to work
Do you have probes and sensors gathering dust in your closet? Fire up one of our many probe-based activities and start collecting data without missing a beat. There’s no need for students to learn how to use complicated graphing or data analysis software – our activities do it all without leaving the page. And you can even use probes from different vendors within the same activity. Try one out today.
Stay on the cutting edge of technology
Do you have the drive to learn about the newest technology? Are you always the first in your school to try new software? We love to work with teachers like you to pilot test our software. Sign up for updates about our cutting-edge classroom technology or to be a pilot teacher and get on the inside track today.
I can't believe I have never seen this group before, but the Concord Consortium has some tremendous math and science resources that are worth exploring. Do let me know if you are using these resources in your classroom and if any have been particularly good.
MakeUseOf.com put together a nice compilation of free tools for making infographics. Is anyone doing this with their students? It seems like it would meet many benchmarks/standards of visual literacy, understandings of data, metrics, and more. A combined math art science project is stirring in my mind.
