1. Solar Learning Activities
Many of these activities teach you about the Sun itself. Others teacha physical concept, like rotation, using the Sun as an example.
The YPOP Solar Classroom is filled with hands-on, solar related activities. There is something for everyone. Many of these activities teach you about the Sun itself. Others teach a physical concept, like rotation, using the Sun as an example. We invite teachers, students, parents and children of all ages to experiment with the activities below. Enjoy!
Hands-On Solar Learning Activities
SOLAR CYCLES: Investigate the cycles of the Sun with 250 years of data! Learn to recognize common features and match x-ray images of the sun with visible light images from the same day. This lesson has been adapted into an exciting ICEBREAKER ACTIVITY as well! IMAGE FILTERING: Build your own inexpensive, color, filter wheel and use it to study an image of the Crab Nebula! Discover why scientists use different filters to study astronomical images. View several images of the Sun as seen through different solar filters. SATELLITE ORBITS: Have you ever seen a satellite passing overhead at night? Did you wonder how high up it was? In this lesson you will obtain the period of the Yohkoh satellite from an image of its orbital path which is updated regularly. With this information you will calculate the height of the satellite above the Earth's surface.
Magnify images of your school or yourself and see what happens. Learn about the pixels that make up all images. Use pixels to create secret messages to your friends, or uncover a mystery picture!

        Program Description
        The university teaching assistant (TA) experience is the major avenue for the training of the future professoriate. However, too often it involves training in leading small-group discussion sections or assisting an instructor with grading or other specific tasks related to the instructor's class, but does not provide an opportunity for the graduate TA to design and present his/her own class, nor does it provide actual preparation for the many and varied roles of the academic scholars. This program is designed to provide an opportunity for graduate students in Physics to explore many of the issues involved in college and university teaching and to develop the competencies required of effective college instructors. In addition to developing experience and expertise in college teaching, participants will be introduced to a wide range of faculty responsibilities. This approach to the training of college instructors is based on classroom experience and feedback from experienced teachers in a variety of institutional settings, supplemented by research and theories of how people learn and process information.

    Physics Resources and Instructional Strategies for Motivating Students (PRISMS)
    Physics Resources and Instructional Strategies for Motivating Students (PRISMS). A comprehensive physics program that stimulates students to develop reasoning and problem-solving skills while providing learning activities about practical applications of physics for grades 10-12. Audience Approved by PEP for students in grades 10-12 with backgrounds in beginning algebra, especially for those students who need additional motivation to learn the concepts and practical applications of physics. Description Physics Resources and Instructional Strategies for Motivating Students (PRISMS) blends exploratory activities, concept development and application activities into a learning cycle. The concepts addressed in the PRISMS Teacher Resource Guide are those typically included in most high school physics courses including kinematics, dynamics, work and energy, internal energy and heat, wave phenomena, electricity and magnetism, and atomic and nuclear physics. High interest activities involving cars, bicycles, balloon rockets, dart guns, sailboats, etc., are utilized to teach the major concepts in physics. Exploration activities encourage students to observe relationships, identify variables, and develop tentative explanations of phenomena. Concepts are introduced through the experiences in this exploration phase. The student tests the generalization through observations in the application stage.

    SeaWorld Physics
    SeaWorld Physics Mission Student Mission: Each of you will be placed on a scientific research team of four or five members. Each team will be given an assignment to visit specific habitats, shows and rides at SeaWorld and make observations and gather data. Since each team's assignment may vary, it is important that you carry out your mission precisely, so that the group picture will be complete. It is critical that your research group work together as a team comparing answers, taking turns making the measurements and asking questions of each other. Before your visit to SeaWorld, your team will be involved with pre-activities to prepare you for your mission. These activities will teach you how to use the tools and begin your training in collecting and analyzing data. Your mission is to understand how the physics concepts of velocity, acceleration, free fall and buoyancy apply to SeaWorld. In the post-activities, you will have an opportunity to compare your abilities to those of the animals you observed in the park activities. You will also be combining your data and observations made at Sea World with those of other teams who had the same assignment. The analysis which will then follow will give your team a chance to show what you have learned. The better your data and the more observant you are, the easier the analysis will be.

    The Physics Teacher: Learning Cycles for a Large-Enrollment Class Citation: Dean Zollman, "Learning cycles for a large-enrollment class," The Physics Teacher 28, 20-25 (1990). Recent attention to precollege science education has once again emphasized two important conclusions:
  • Children are frequently "turned-off" from science in elementary school and are unlikely to change that attitude in later years, and Elementary school teachers are seldom adequately prepared to teach science.
  • Most physicists will accept these conclusions without documentation. Their reactions are frequently to admonish colleges of education with, "Too many methods courses; not enough hard science." Yet, when we look at the average physics course taken by elementary-education majors and other nonscience majors, we can see our contribution to the problem. Introductory physics courses are generally regarded by students as a collection of facts. While we try to teach reasoning skills and understanding in a survey course, we present such a large quantity of information that most students react by memorizing. They view science as knowledge to be recalled. We should not be surprised, then, that school teachers frequently feel inadequately prepared to teach science. How can they possibly recall all they need to remember to teach physics, chemistry, biology, earth science, and so on? The answer is that they do not need to recall it. Science is not a collection of facts but a way of observing, collecting data, critically thinking, building models, and comparing with nature. Teachers who understand this concept should be much more comfortable with science.

    Resources and Information for Educators who use Probeware Science * Mathematics * Technology Education
    Physics teachers probably do experiments involving collecting data more often than any other kind of teacher. Coach probeware is designed with educators needs in mind. Coach is great at quantitative experiments but it also helps students with hands-on conceptual physics. Coach is unique in that it can easily control variables in an experiment as well as recording data. This is used in a very thought provoking experiment about resonance. On this page you will find information about using CoachLab software and hardware (as well as TI-CBL) in Physics and Physical Science.
    Benefits of Coach Probeware for Physics Teachers
    • Coach can record data for milliseconds thus allowing you to perform many time sensitive physics experiments. Coach can record data from up to six sensors at a time. Coach can graph one sensor vs. another one thus allowing experiments such as voltage vs. current or temperature vs. pressure. Video Analysis lets you present physics concepts in a concrete way that students can easily understand.
