45-45-90 Triangles

To learn the pattern of the side lengths of a 45-45-90 triangle, students complete a gallery walk, a card sort activity starting with using the Pythagorean theorem, and activity to locate if there is an error in a presented problem and if so to identify what the error is.

###
Introduction to Character Foils

During this lesson, students will view video clips and read texts that have character foils examples. Students will complete a graphic organizer with evidence that supports their identification of foil characters. Once complete, students will use the information from the graphic organizer to discuss character foils.

###
Metacognitive Approaches to Student-based Learning

In this lesson, students will learn how to make complex inferences and draw conclusions about a work of literary fiction using a combination of text evidence and background knowledge. Using a graphic organizer and a short story, students will record both text evidence and their prior knowledge, and combine these elements to make an inference about the character.

Newton's Three Laws of Motion

This resource provides alternate or additional learning opportunities for students learning the three Newton's Laws of Motion. It includes a collection of interactive materilas, videos, and other digital media. Physics TEKS, (4)(D)

###
Newton's Law of Inertia

This resource provides instructional resources for Newton's First Law, the law of inertia.

###
Newton's Law of Action-Reaction

This resource is to support TEKS (8)(6)(C), specifically the Newton's third law or the law of action-reaction.

###
Electromagnetic Forces

Given schematic diagrams, illustrations or descriptions, students will identify the relationship of electric and magnetic fields in applications such as generators, motors, and transformers.

###
Power

Given diagrams, illustrations, scenarios, or relevant data, students will calculate the power of a physical system.

###
Kinetic and Potential Energy

Given diagrams, illustrations or relevant data, students will identify examples of kinetic and potential energy and their transformations.

###
Work-Energy Theorem

Using diagrams, illustrations, and relevant data, students will calculate the net work done on an object, the change in an object's velocity, and the change in an object's kinetic energy.

3.01 Distance and Displacement

In this video, we explore the difference between distance traveled (an example of a scalar) and displacement (an example of a vector), and we review some basic vector math.

###
3.02 Average Speed and Average Velocity

In this video, we explore the difference between speed and velocity, and their relationship to distance and displacement.

###
3.03 Kinematic Equations in One Dimension

In this video, we introduce the three primary kinematics equations and apply them to one-dimensional problems. The term "acceleration" is also introduced.

###
3.04 Kinematic Equations Graphical Analysis

In this video, we analyze hypothetical experiments by graphing position, velocity, and acceleration versus time, qualitatively.

###
3.05 Kinematic Equations in Two Dimensions

In this video, we apply the three primary kinematic equations to projectile motion problems.

###
3.06 Relative Motion

In this video, the inherent (classical) relativity of velocity measurements is explored, qualitatively and quantitatively, in both one and two dimensions.

###
6.01 Classifications of Waves

In this video, we explore the two fundamental categories of waves and give physical examples of each.

###
6.02 Properties of Waves

In this video, we define the fundamental quantities associated with waves, including frequency, period, amplitude, and speed.

###
6.03 Sound Waves

In this video, we explore how the mathematics and concepts of waves apply to a specific type of wave: sound.

###
6.04 The Doppler Effect and Interference

In this video, we explore the Doppler effect, which modulates the perceived frequency of waves depending on the relative motion between source and observer.
