This fun Web site is part of OLogy, where kids can collect virtual trading cards and create projects with them. Here, they are introduced to Einstein's life and work with four engaging and kid-friendly areas. Equation Invasion, a look at the world's most famous equation about the relationship between energy and mass. Web Master, the scientists whose ideas and discoveries shaped Einstein's career. Light the Way, an introduction to "the fastest thing in the universe" and the waves it travels in. Everyday Einstein: LASERS, a comic strip that illustrates how Einstein's work led to the development of lasers.

This OLogy activity gives kids a fun way to mesh their own thoughts with those of Albert Einstein. Three ready-to-print letterheads are provided as downloadable PDFs. They include colorful looks at:that most famous of equations, E=mc2the great web of existing scientific thought that Einstein built his ideas upon a thought experiment that asks the question, "What if you could ride on a beam of light?"

Modern Physics-Stranger than Fiction
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted

Rating
0.0 stars

The lessons in this unit were developed by teachers at Souhegan High School for junior/senior level Physics classes, to be taught during the first trimester of the 2016-17 school year. It includes 5-10 lessons that culminate in students demonstrating their ability to find meaning in complex text and incorporate key ideas of modern physics by completing the final creative writing project.

Modern physics is a very broad topic. We will be focusing on three of the main pillars of modern physics — special relativity, general relativity, and quantum theory. The goal of the unit it to have students use the concepts of modern physics accurately in a creative way and increase their willingness and confidence to learn more about the subjects beyond high school. Modern physics is intimidating to the general public. We hope to spark students interest and have students realize that they can make sense out of the counter intuitive model of reality.

Each topic will be broken into several phases of understanding:

Limitations of classical physics
Key principle that led to modern physics
Models for describing modern physics
Predictions and experiments that support and provide evidence for modern physics theories

The students will explore the phases by using inquiry-based reading. They will explore an anchor text for meaning while looking for where it addresses the four phases above. Students will then perform additional research and apply what they have learned in class to create their final project.

Relativity Lite: A Pictorial Translation of Einstein’s Theories of Motion and Gravity
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

Relativity Lite is designed for the General Astronomy sequence (PH 361-2U, SCI 315-6U) whose primary book glosses over Special Relativity and General Relativity while trying to explain the Cosmology that is based on those subjects. Relativity Lite translates the mathematical equations conventional relativity texts rely upon into pictures that are readily understood and contain within them the mathematical essentials. This book provides the comprehensive coverage needed to understand, in sufficient depth, these three linked areas of our reality.

Readers seeking this knowledge on their own, and those in other courses for nonscientists, may also find it helpful.

This OLogy activity uses the traditional Japanese art of paper-folding to help kids understand dimensions. The activity begins with a brief introduction to both dimensions and origami. The kids are then given instructions, included as printable PDFs, for morphing 2D paper into 3D models (a simple box and a water bomb).The activity ends with an illustrated look at dimensions, from the zero dimensions of a point to the fourth dimension of time.

This OLogy activity first introduces kids to the idea of thought experiments. Then it puts their scientific creativity to work with two mind-bending experiments that rely solely on imagination. Both thought experiments have background information, plus concrete examples of how to approach the experiment. Specifically, they ask:Can you throw a ball so hard it never falls to Earth?What if light could only travel one foot/second?
