Went on a STEM field trip on Monday. Got asked twice what I wanted to do after college. I’m young, short and wearing jeans doesn’t help.

This is a great question. In chemistry I have to be careful because in dimensional analysis the units cancel (simplify to 1), in writing ionic formulas the charges cancel (add to 0), and in chemical equations the atoms are balanced (= both sides). I’d like to be more precise...

I had two awesome lab days with my 10th graders. Day before break and day after break. Most relaxing lab days in 16 yrs of teaching. Difference? I took away the instructions. During our lessons in the weeks up to the lab we discussed the procedures, error, etc in detail.

Thanks! My AP class is done with our usual homework at this point, but setting up a this new platform may become my summer project. I’ve been constantly changing my homework approach over the past two years and I like where ASSISTments could take us

But the video help is a game changer. How easy is the website to use on the teachers end? My problem with webassign is that it has all this incredible functionality but it’s more than I need and I have to relearn the coding language whenever I want to add new questions...

Whoa this is awesome. I used webassign for online assignments for a little while but it was too much work for me and the students got frustrated because they had to write their answers just right. In the end I just posted the final answers and they used them to check their work

This is a great idea! I have daily "check-ins" with a mini quiz on the front of a half-sheet of paper and a reflection on the back. I'm thinking of combining the daily quizzes into one or two sheets for each week with a longer/deeper reflection at the end.

The feedback I've gotten from about is that it's hard for Ss to get used to a group when the groups change every day. They need time for it to really be effective. Class meets 2/3 times a week. So next year I think I'll change up the groups every 2 weeks

I want to get sturdier VNPS but in the meantime I used SmartSheets and they’ve held up great

DM me your email and I would be happy to share! If you google the name of the lab you’ll find lots of versions online. My version replaces the usual lab instructions with integrated instructions

Dear I know you were never a teacher and that you rarely visit schools (especially public schools), but here is a simple visual that even you will understand...

This trampoline moving at constant velocity (and therefore not accelerated) shows you how the horizontal component of velocity in an acrobat motion remains constant [source of the gif: ] [explanation by : ]

Y'all. This was the first lab where I didn't remind students to write down correct significant figures on their measurements and everyone reported correct sig figs!
