Concept Cartoons: Change of State and Insulation

This concept cartoon explores student's ideas about heat and insulation. A common misconception is that some materials have the property of making things warm. In this case because we have put coats on to keep warm there is a tendency to believe that the coat will also make the snowman warm so that it will melt...

Dangerous Cold

In this activity students consider the questions: • How does heat energy move around? • How can we model the flow of energy and changes in temperature? • What can be done to prevent hypothermia? • Why do we need to try so hard to stay at the right temperature? In order to survive and be comfortable in hot or cold...

Gas Properties

This simulation allows students to pump gas molecules into a box and see what happens as you change the volume, add or remove heat, change gravity, and more. They can measure the temperature and pressure, and discover how the properties of the gas vary in relation to each other.

Sample learning objectives...
