  8. Experimental Simulations • Sometimes experiments are too costly, too hazardous, or controversial • Examples: • http://school.discovery.com/lessonplans/activities/electronmicroscope/ • http://www.learner.org/exhibits/parkphysics/coaster/ • http://www.froguts.com/flash_content/demo/frog.html • http://www.crocodile-clips.com/s3_4.htm • http://www.edheads.org/

  9. Interactive Manipulatives • Money, Protractors, Pattern Blocks, Computer Assisted Design, etc… • Examples: • http://www.sketchup.com/ • http://nlvm.usu.edu/en/nav/vlibrary.html • http://arcytech.org/java/ • http://www.amblesideprimary.com/ambleweb/numeracy.htm

  10. Google Sketchup • 3D modeling software tool • Easy to learn, simple to use, • From simple to complex, from conceptual to realistic • Draw shapes, explore design • Explore using geometric measurement • creative exploration of 3D form, material and light • Lets you place your models in Google Earth 3-D for Everyone! http://www.sketchup.com

  11. Save for video

  12. Basic structure w/overhang, added texture

  13. A futuristic hotel w/ parking on the roof!

  14. A great lesson using geometric shapes

  15. Using Google Earth in a lesson
