These are the lesson plans I have developed that will incorporate my research experience working in the RET Program.
The lessons will be integrated into my unit on measurement.
Review and/or Reteach Surface Area and Volume. Students will review how to calculate the surface area and volume for geometric figures. Area, perimeter and circumference can also be integrated in this lesson at the teacher's discretion.
This lesson will be an application of the concepts reviewed in Lesson 1.
Lesson 3 and 4:
Using the NanoSense Curriculum, introduce students to nanotechnology and the unique properties that characterize these substances. This resource is located on the internet and can be found on the lesson plan.
This lesson incorporates my experience working in the UPenn laboratory. I hope to inspire my students to consider a carreer in engineering. With nanoresearch still in its creative phase, our future engineers can explore the possibilites.
