This is a collection of science materials for presenting at the 2005 OU Teaching Scholars Initiative presentation.

Authorized users only:


Ideal Gas Law Simulation

Added 07/28/2006
This simulation shows a microscopic model of an ideal gas. This demonstrates using simulations to demonstrate concepts that can not otherwise be observed.

Ideal gas transformations

Added 07/28/2006
The use of P-V diagrams, and their relation to real, physical processes, can cause problems for many students. This simulation, with extensive notes, gives students hands-on practice with these concepts.

Virtual Chemistry Laboratory

Added 07/28/2006
This full-featured "virtual wet lab" can be used to give students pre-lab experiences that will prepare them for a real lab, or study and review subject matter where and when they wish.

DNA from the Beginning

Added 07/28/2006
DNA From the Beginning is an extensive collection of tutorials, vides, exercises, and more about DNA. It can enrich the in-class experience, and then be used for exercises and reviews outside of class.

MacTutor History of Mathematics Archive

Added 07/28/2006
This collection of biographies, history, and features can be used to make math more personal and real for students. The history provides insight into how Mathematics is really done.

Building a Transistor

Added 07/28/2006
This detailed illustration of the process of creating a transitor will engage visual learners and those who like to follow details of processes and construction.

Optics Bench Physlet

Added 07/28/2006
This type of material can be used to actively engage students in the learning process. They are required to understand concepts and not just be able to plug numbers in formulae. They also receive visual feedback to help with their learning.

Physics Illuminations

Added 07/28/2006
This suite of online tutorials and drills can be used to move some basic learning outside of class so that class time can be used on more advanced or difficult issues.
