Summary "Includes an overview of ADI, 22 different lab investigations that are aligned with all 4 of the disciplinary core ideas in the physical sciences, a peer review guide and teacher scoring rubric, and three different investigation proposals. Each investigation includes a student lab handout, teacher notes, and checkout questions"--Publisher website.
Contents Section 1 : introduction and lab safety -- Introduction / Patrick J. Enderle and Victor Sampson -- Safety in the science classroom, laboratory, or field sites -- Section 2 : physical sciences core idea 1 : matter and its interactions -- Introduction labs -- Lab 1 : thermal energy and matter : what happens at the molecular level when thermal energy is added to a substance -- Lab 2 : chemical and physical changes : what set of rules should we used to distinguish between chemical and physical changes in matter? -- Application labs -- Lab 3 : physical properties of matter : what are the identities of the unknown substances? -- Lab 4 : conservation of mass : how does the total mass of the substances formed as a result of a chemical change compare with the total mass of the original substances? -- Lab 5 : Design challenge : which design will cool a soda the best? -- Section 3 : physical science core idea 2 : motion and stability : forces and interactions -- Introduction labs -- Lab 6 : strength of gravitational force : how does the gravitational force that exists between two objects relate to their masses and the distance between them? -- Lab 7 : mass and free fall : how does mass affect the amount of time it takes for an object to fall to the ground? -- Lab 8 : force and motion : how do changes in pulling force affect the motion of an object? -- Lab 9 : mass and motion : how do changes in the mass of an object affect its motion? -- Lab 10 : magnetic force : how is the strength of an electromagnet affected by the number of turns of wire in a coil? -- Application labs -- Lab 11 : design challenge : which electromagnet design is best for picking up 50 paper clips? -- Lab 12 : unbalanced forces : how does surface area influence friction and the motion of an object? -- Section 4 : physical science core idea 3 : engergy -- introduction labls Lab 13 : kinetic energy : how do the mass and velocity of an object affect its kinetic energy? -- Lab 14 : potential energy : how can you make an action figure jump higher? -- Lab 15 : thermal energy and specific heat : which material has the greatest specific heat? -- Lab 16 : electrical energy and lightbulbs : how does the arrangement of lightbulbs that are connected to a battery affect the brightness of a single bulb in that circuit? -- Application labs -- Lab 17 : rate of energy transfer : how does the surface area of a substance affect the rate at which thermal energy is transferred from one substance to another? -- Lab 18 : radiation and energy transfer : what color should we paint a building to reduce cooling costs? -- Section 5 : physical science core idea 4 : waves and their applications in technologies for information transfer -- Introduction labs -- Lab 19 : wave properties : how do frequency, amplitude, and wavelength of a transverse wave affect its energy? -- Lab 20 : reflection and refraction : how can you predict where a ray of light will go when it comes in contact with different types of transparent materials? -- Lab 20 : reflection and refraction : how can you predict where a ray of light will go when it comes in contact with different types of transparent materials? -- Application labs -- Lab 21 : light and information transfer : how does the type of material affect the amount of light that is lost when light waves travel down a tube? -- Lab 22 : design challenge : how should eyeglasses be shaped to correct for nearsightedness and farsightedness?
