FREE – Developing and Using Models Sponsored by Carolina Biological Supply Company
August 17, 2021 @ 4:00 pm - 5:00 pm EDT
The goal of this free workshop, sponsored by Carolina Biological Supply Company, is to provide teachers with specific examples of activities that utilize models within the core curriculum of high school science. The Next Generation Science Standards state “Developing and Using Models” as one of the eight Science and Engineering Practices students will need for academic competency because the use of models is pervasive in research. Classic 3-dimensional structures that are static or dynamic with moving parts and interdependent attributes are the most familiar models, but more broadly, models may also take the form of a simulation or a game when not all parts of a system are observable. In fact, scientific experiments are also 3-dimensional models that replicate a smaller part of a larger system in an effort to tease out how one factor influences another. Models may also take a 2-dimensional form such as topographic maps; infrared spectrograms; system diagrams that connect interrelated inputs, outputs, reservoirs, and flows; or graphs that project data beyond the limits of what has been documented. In this webinar, Kristen will use several Carolina Biological Supply Company products from physical science, earth science, chemistry, and biology to demonstrate how students can use 2-dimensional or 3-dimensional models and even develop their own models and communicate those models to others.
