 Environmental Science: Embedded Technology & Engineering Checks for Understanding Science Curriculum Standards 3260 - Environmental Science Internet Resources Select appropriate tools to conduct a scientific inquiry. T/E.1 British and Metric Conversions - a series of pages relating to converting to or from metric units Calculating the Density of a Liquid - tutorial on the math involved plus sample questions Calculating Density of a Solid - tutorial on the math involved plus sample questions Converting Fahrenheit to Celsius - interactive problem from Annenberg Converting Length Measurements - use your knowledge of meters, centimeters and millimeters to answer questions to build a shed Finding the Mass of an Object - tutorial on using a triple-beam balance which includes questions to answer Finding the Volume of an Object - tutorial on using a graduated cylinder which includes questions to answer Platform Scales Addition - weigh several items and find the sum in hundredths of a gram or Platform Scales Subtraction - weigh several items and find the difference in hundredths of a gram or Teaching Measures - links to length, mass, or capacity activities and printables - good for using on an interactive whiteboard for a whole class activity Transparency Master - use this high quality picture of a block of metal on a triple beam balance as a review for your students Using a Graduated Cylinder - [L and mL] a whole class activity for reading a scale, estimating and converting between units or Using a Platform Scale - practice using scales like the one in a doctor's office, five Gregs will drop on the scale, waiting to be weighed, see how quickly you can weigh them or Using a Ruler - a whole class activity for reading a ruler, estimating and converting between units or Apply the engineering design process to construct a prototype that meets developmentally appropriate specifications. T/E.2 Explore how the unintended consequences of new technologies can impact human and non-human communities. T/E.3 Present research on current bioengineering technologies that advance health and contribute to improvements in our daily lives. T/E.4 Design a series of multi-view drawings that can be used by other students to construct an adaptive design and test its effectiveness. T/E.5 3-D Object Viewer - Students may explore a variety of 3-D objects and their accompanying 2-D views. or Building Houses with Side View - student constructs a block figure (dynamic, perspective drawing) to match (10 different figures) or Coloring 3-D sides - [UK spelling on this site] Find the red sides shown in a series of 2-D drawings and click on the right face of the 3-D model to color it red. 20 questions or Coloring 2-D sides - Use the colored portion of the 3-D object to color the correct side of the 2-D drawing. or Cube - Find out which colors will be on opposite faces of a cube whose faces are shown unfolded. Guess the View - Students are given a 3-D view of an object, and then given a 2-D view of the object. Students must choose which of 6 views is being displayed from a list. and Plot Plans and Silhouettes - from Shape and Space in Geometry - the student task is to come up with plot plans that could match the given silhouettes. Background information is available at another page. Quick Images - In the following Interactive Activity, you'll stretch both your visualization and drawing muscles. (click on Show Shape to begin the activity) Rotating Houses - Students are presented with a 3-D figure created with blocks that can be rotated and flipped using a mouse. The figure must be rotated until it matches a 2-D representation of one of the views. or
