Example Weekly Project (Unit 2)


Published on

This is an example of the sort of project I expect for weekly assignments in my classes. Note: this only took 24 minutes to make. There are a few errors that should be fixed. The point is to show not that it needs to be a perfected product, but demonstrating understanding.

Example Weekly Project (Unit 2)

  1. 1. Survivor: Science Theories
  2. 2. Evidence and Elimination <ul><li>Survivor: Science Theories </li><ul><li>4 elements: kickin' it old school
  3. 3. Hard Spheres: having a ball
  4. 4. Rasin Bun: adding a little flavour
  5. 5. Rutherford: seeing all the holes </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. Rules <ul><li>All the competitions are designed to test the strengths of the theroies against the evidence.
  7. 7. Those that fail will be tossed by the side, those that move on will have to live in the wilderness off the experiements and technologies available to them.
  8. 8. In the end </li><ul><ul><li>There can be only one.... </li></ul></ul></ul>
  9. 9. Survivor
  10. 10. Week 1 <ul><li>Evidence from experiments determine compounds made of other chemicals.
  11. 11. Man made oxygen and hydrogen from water.
  12. 12. This is a serious blow to the 4 elements team. </li></ul>
  13. 13. So long 4 elements <ul><li>You stated everything is made up of earth, air, fire, and water.
  14. 14. Water is proven to be made up of oxygen and hydrogen </li></ul>x
  15. 15. Week 2 <ul><li>Discovered evidence of subatomic particles.
  16. 16. 3 distinct charges can be made from many materials. </li><ul><li>Positive
  17. 17. Negative
  18. 18. Neutral </li></ul></ul>
  19. 19. Evidence <ul><li>Two objects of the same type when rubbed. After they are charged they repel each other.
  20. 20. When two charged objects that are not alike are brough together they attract. </li><ul><li>This proved two types of chare </li></ul><li>When a charged object nears an uncharged object it is attracted. After they touch the two objects repel </li><ul><li>This proves neurtal objects </li></ul></ul>
  21. 21. The tribe has spoken! <ul><li>Like charged repel
  22. 22. Unlike charges attract
  23. 23. Nutral objects are attracted to charged objects
  24. 24. So long hard speres </li></ul>x
  25. 25. An unexpected turn <ul><li>An experiment intended to measure the size of an atom to confirm the hard sphere theory has provided an unexpected aliance
  26. 26. This knocks out the hard rasin bun model </li></ul>x
  27. 27. The Final Competition <ul><li>In an effort to cement victory Rutherford attempted to find the size of an atom by shooting alpha particles at a sheet of gold.
  28. 28. When he did most of them went through.
  29. 29. This proved the atom is mostly air, and not a solid rasin bun. </li></ul>
  30. 30. Recap of our contestants <ul><li>4 elements:
  31. 31. Everything made up of earth, air, fire, water
  32. 32. Based on phylosophy with little or no experimentation
  33. 33. Experiments determined there are more elements </li></ul><ul><li>Hard sphere model:
  34. 34. Everything made up of atoms
  35. 35. Atoms are hard spheres
  36. 36. Atoms of elements combine to form molecules
  37. 37. Could not explain electrons </li></ul>
  38. 38. The Runner Up <ul><li>Raisin Bun Model:
  39. 39. Atom is a positive dough, with negative electrons embedded in it.
  40. 40. These electrons could be removed to create free electrons and charge.
  41. 41. Rutherford found out the atoms was mostly empty space. </li></ul>
  42. 42. Our Winner (So far)
