Presentation Transcript

  1. Inquiry Based LearningandProject Based Learning Old tricks in a new environment

  2. Brainstorm • Think of statements that we as humans have learned that are no longer valid.

  3. Reflect • Turn these answers into questions.

  4. “Answers don’t seem to participate in the ever transforming dance of the whole Universe, as we are. Sticking with them means you lose out on most of this fun. Reality can change as easily as the way you care to see it. An answer, static in nature as it is, refers to one frozen snapshot of that reality. Its value can only go down. Today’s treasure could be tomorrow’s garbage.” • Taken from website: http://kiriakakis.net/comics/mused/a-day-at-the-park

  11. Energy Cars • Kinetic and potential energy • Electrical energy • Mechanical energy • Chemical energy

  12. Health and Nutrition • Measurement • Vitamins and minerals • Marketing Health Drinks

  13. Acceleration • Velocity • Centripetal Force • Gravity Roller Coasters
