  • Slide 2
  • MST Inquiry Unit Introduction This is an MST inquiry unit model, for the lessons have a link between math, science and technology. Incorporate Blooms taxonomy, Gardners multiple intelligences. Adhere to the mandated mathematics, science, technology, and ELA standards. It contains a Filamentality Web Page, and a MyEnectricalEnergywiki.Filamentality Web Page MyEnectricalEnergywiki
  • Slide 3
  • Introduction (Continued) Lessons: How electricity travels. How energy can be transferred from one place to another How interactions with forms of energy can be helpful or harmful.
  • Slide 4
  • Lesson 1- Types of Circuits Web Resource-
  • Slide 5
  • Collecting Their Data Supplies Used Did it work? Why or Why Not? How you Altered the Circuit Circuit 1 Battery, string, bulb No Because I did not Circuit 2 Circuit 3
  • Slide 6
  • You never knew circuits could be this fun!!!
  • Slide 7
  • Lesson 3- Static Energy Students will complete an activity where they will test out different objects to see which objects create static Different materials they will use to test: Balloon against persons hair, paper, and Styrofoam Carpet/rug and piece of metal (ie. Door knob)
  • Slide 8
  • Now Thats Static!! The following is what the students findings (bar graph) should look like based on the class activity:
  • Slide 9
  • What are the uses of Electricity? Home & School Uses of Electricity:
  • Slide 10
  • How to calculate Kilowatt-Hour Usage? How much electricity we use in the classroom? Electrical Devices How many?Estimated Wattage Computer4150 Watts Fluorescent Lights 940 Watts Compact Refrigerator 157 Watts Some Electrical Devices in our Classroom: Watts /1000 = (kW) Kilowatts (kW) x Hours of Use = kilowatt Hours (kWh) Kilowatts Hours (kWh) x $0.093(Rate) = Cost of Usage
  • Slide 11
  • What is a Kilowatt-Hour? How much coal is needed to produce 1 kilowatt-Hour of electricity? Answer: 1 pound of coal Where do you think this energy is generated from? What is the kilowatt-Hour usage for three electrical devices in my classroom? kWh usage = 5.019 A classroom in the United State on average uses? Answer: one Kilowatt-hour of electricity
  • Slide 12
  • What are non-renewable energy sources? Non-renewable if they cannot be replenished (made again) in a short period of time. What are renewable energy sources? renewable energy sources such as solar and wind can be replenished naturally in a short period of time.
  • Slide 13
  • Energy Sources Non-Renewable Sources Renewable sources Oil Coal Gas Biomass Geothermal Hydropower SolarWind
  • Slide 14
  • Are you a Energeneous? Scavenger Hunt: Renewable & Non- Renewable Energy Sources What are non-renewable energy sources? What are the five renewable energy sources? What are the uses of electricity? How the electric energy used is measured? Why it is important to save (conserve) energy? How can you save energy? Where does electricity come from? Use the Filamentality Web Page hyperlinks to find the answers to the following Scavenger Hunt questions. comefrom.p
