Welcome to Wolf Research Concepts!

This course was developed by the International Wolf Center to promote awareness about wolves and foster an interest in learning more about them. During this course, you will become familiar with a variety of tools that researchers use to study wolves. Wolf research enables humans to better understand wolf behavior, ecology and conservation.

This course is meant to be a small, 2-3 week unit on the transfer of heat, specifically conduction, convection and radiation. This unit is made for use within a 6th grade physical science class.
There is one lab that requires a block of wax, a piece of plastic, a piece of wood, a piece of metal and boiling water.


This is an online Stoichiometry Unit designed for High School General Chemistry.

This course on sound is designed to give learners an online interactive experience learning about the physics and mathematics of sound.  The unit is certainly not exhaustive of the topic but is a start for students to learn by creating and recording with software such as Audacity and Visual Analyzer.  My hope is that as time allows for myself and others and as the long tail of the internet reaches far that this can serve as a collaborative seed to a great moodle unit on learning the physics and mathematics of sound.  The next block could include an experiment on open and closed pipes.  Create and Share.

Science Writing: Introduction to the Interactive Science Notebook. This course focuses on familiarizing students with the thinking levels and writing styles they will need to successfully complete their interactive notebooks in science.

What is a Science Fair?

A typical science fair is a collection of experiments done by students. Each experiment clearly demonstrates the steps of the scientific method that the student followed to complete the experiment. Science fair projects are usually done on your own (in small groups). The science fair takes place on one day where all participants set up a booth to showcase what they have done.

Our science fair will be completed in class and showcased in a digital format. A digital format means once your project is completed, you will put your end product, along with pictures of your steps along the way, online and students can view each other's projects on a computer. You will have the opportunity to view a number of projects from both 6th grade teams.

Let's learn about climate change and how our actions can create positive change!

The purpose of this Moodle is to facilitate the LandUse Projet

An overview of the Great Lakes throughout time. As a student you will discover how the Great Lakes were formed into their present state and what current changes will shapes the future of these amazing lakes.

We will look at many factors including: ecology, industry, history, current research and more.

Welcome to our course on environmental problems. Your and your childrens' future is at risk if we do not change our habits and take action for a better planet.

This unit deals with various environmental aspects and you will also meet people who decided to take some action.

In this unit you will learn about:

  • The importance of forests
  • The impact of deforestation
  • Sustainable Forest Management
  • Sustainable living

In this course you'll learn many interesting facts about engineering! You'll explore information on different websites, on video clips and on Google Earth KMZ files. You'll need to "show what you know" in a variety of ways including creating a glog, creating Google Earth presentations and uploading thinking maps.

Topics covered in this course are:
1. What is an Engineer?
2. The 5 Step Design Process
3. Enginnering Wonders
4. Engineers of the Past

Have fun and learn lots, future engineers!

This course is to satisfy the requirements for fourth grade electricity in Minnesota.

This course is designed as an introductory course in the fundamentals of "static" electrical interactions. This Course is meant to address the Minnesota Science Standards

2. Physical Science

3. Energy

2. Electrons respond to electric fields and voltages by moving through electrical circuits and this motion generates magnetic fields.

9P.2.3.2.1

Explain why currents flow when free charges are placed in an electric field, and how that forms the basis for electric circuits.

9P.2.3.2.2

Explain and calculate the relationship of current, voltage, resistance and power in series and parallel circuits.

For example: Determine the voltage between two points in a series circuit with two resistors.


Check out this new Moodle course page with lots of fascinating resources and activities to do with climate change and its effects. Great for a tutorial or lesson using the interactive climate map or the animation, followed by the Moodle activities as ideas on your interactive whiteboard.

  • no enrolment key needed
  • for use in Tutorials, Science in Society, Evironmental Science, Geography, Sociology, Citizenship, General Studies, Critical Thinking (assess peer-reviewed script on Wake Up animation), ICT and Entrepreneurship or any other situation.
  • Please feedback at the bottom of the page.

The audience for this course is University level science students with an interest in climate science and climate change. The aim is to give a broader view of the topic of climate change.

This course is designed for sophomore biology class. The unit is Cell Reproduction.

This is an Integrated Technology project for secondary students studying Biomes.  This is designed to be the technology part of a face-to-face class which allows students to participate in 3 constructivist technology based projects to research and construct their learning about biomes and adaptation.

AP Biology is an introductory, college-level biology course organized by four Big Ideas, 7 Science Practices, and Student-Directed Lab Investigations. Evolution, Big Idea #1: The process of evolution drives the diversity and unity of life. Cellular Processes: Energy and Communication, Big Idea #2: Biological systems utilize free energy and molecular building blocks to grow, reproduce and to maintain dynamic homeostasis. Genetics and Information Transfer, Big Idea #3: Living systems store, retrieve, transmit and respond to information essential to life processes. Interactions, Big Idea #4: Biological systems interact, and these systems and their interactions possess complex properties. The lab investigations are integrated throughout the course and connect the Big Ideas one to another.

This is a back-up copy of physics as of June 2009

This unit covers the basics of acids and bases. Topics covered include:

  • definitions of acids and bases
  • strong vs. weak acids and bases
  • pH
  • titration
  • LeChatelier's Principal and Acid/Base Indicators

Students in Environmental Science will be studying the interaction between humans and their environment. This will include looking at the cycling of nutrients, and how living and nonliving things work together.

Course Syllabus

Physics I is a course designed for high school students in grades 11 & 12. Topics studied include motion, forces, momentum, energy, heat, electricity & magnetism, waves & optics, fluid mechanics, and atomic & particle physics. The course requires that students be comfortable describing and solving real-world problems using algebra and basic trigonometry. The course also requires vector math, but this topic is taught at the beginning of the course. The course is supported by an interactive, inquiry-based laboratory environment where students gain hands-on experience with the concepts being studied. The content of the course course exceeds the requirements of the Massachusetts Curriculum Frameworks for high school physics and is recommended for students who are planning to take AP Physics and/or the SAT subject test in physics.

This course on sound is designed to give learners an online interactive experience learning about the physics and mathematics of sound.  The unit is certainly not exhaustive of the topic but is a start for students to learn by creating and recording with software such as Audacity and Visual Analyzer.  My hope is that as time allows for myself and others and as the long tail of the internet reaches far that this can serve as a collaborative seed to a great moodle unit on learning the physics and mathematics of sound.  The next block could include an experiment on open and closed pipes.  Create and Share.
