A ppt that starts with a brief video titled "Introduction to Earth Science." You can watch the video by selecting it below in this tutorial - it will not come up inside this ppt as it did in class. The notes then continue on to a discussion of the scientific method.
A video from Frank Gregorio set up to look like a movie preview.
Here's the video from the last page of our notes - a good review of the scientific method

This ppt lets us look at two real world applications of the use of the scientific method.

I love this clip as it says a lot about effective communication skills...I also like it because it requires you to pay a lot of attention to detail and this lesson talks about observation skills as they pertain to the scientific method.
I don't remember where I discovered this gem but I love the way it illustrates the use of the scientific method, as well as controls, and variables.

Just a wonderful song on the failed U.S. attempt at metric conversion. I use this video to start my review on the metric system.

This ppt is a brief introduction to the metric system by looking at when and why it was invented and how it is used in measuring length, mass, and volume. This ppt was modified by me from a now unknown author.

An outstanding short film made by Charles and Ray Eames back in the 70s. It really gives you an idea of size and the effect of adding or subtracting zero from a number. I like to use it during my metric system review.

One of many fine videos made by teacher Paul Andersen...the title says it all.
We covered a lot in this tutorial. Go back and review the powerpoint notes and even watch some of the video clips again. Don't forget to check over you class work and homework too.
If you've lost any of the work you can find copies of most or all of the work on our class website.
The first quiz will check your understanding of the following:
