Plan an investigation to determine the relationships among the energy transferred, the type of matter, the mass, and the change in the average kinetic energy of the particles as measured by the temperature of the sample.
Big Idea:In this summative assessment, students demonstrate their understanding of energy and scientific writing by answering the essential question. As opposed to a multiple choice exam, students can each demonstrate their understanding in their own way!
Big Idea:Students generate 25 ways to study and practice some of these strategies as they prepare for their summative assessment. Students analyze their own formative assessment data to identify their individual learning needs and create a lighbulb graphic organiz
Big Idea:How do architects design eco-friendly buildings that take advantage of the heat transfer from the sun's radiation? Students create an investigation as they explore radiation and its heat transferring potential.
Big Idea:How can conduction help designers and engineers build eco-friendly homes? Tire of the same old Heat Transfer Lessons? Use this lesson for a real life case of how an architect uses conduction to determine eco-friendly materials.
Big Idea:How do the designers of geo thermal heating use the science concept of heat transfer to design eco-friendly building systems? Students complete an investigation as they explore geo thermal convection systems.
