Fountain parabolas - mathematics activities

The trajectory of the water from the Captain Cook Memorial Fountain in Lake Burley Griffin, Canberra, provides a good approximation to a parabola. By having students examine other fountains, different 'shapes' can be detected. The mathematical demands increase accordingly. Teachers are encouraged to scan all the ideas suggested ...

Cable housing - mathematics activities

This photograph of a steel cable or wire rope and its housing suggests a number of counting and shape related activities. It is important for students to recognise that the wires and the derivative threads of the cable must be twisted in the opposite sense to avoid unravelling. Teachers are encouraged to scan all the ideas ...

Model of a glucose sugar molecule

This is a colour photograph of a model of a glucose sugar molecule. The model is composed of spheres representing the atoms in the molecule, and rods representing the bonds between the atoms. Glucose is a simple molecule consisting of three elements - carbon, hydrogen and oxygen. Carbon is shown by black spheres, hydrogen ...

Water molecule

This is a colour image of a model of a molecule of water, H₂O. In this model, atoms are represented by coloured spheres held together by grey rods, representing covalent bonds. The water molecule contains one oxygen atom (the red sphere) and two hydrogen atoms (the grey-white spheres).

Image

Ammonia molecule

This is a colour image of a model of a molecule of ammonia, NH₃. In this model, atoms are represented by coloured spheres held together by grey rods, representing covalent bonds. The ammonia molecule consists of one nitrogen atom (the blue sphere) and three hydrogen atoms (the grey-white spheres).

Image

Bromine monofluoride molecule

This is a colour image of a model of a molecule of bromine monofluoride, BrF. In this model, atoms are represented by coloured spheres held together by grey rods, representing covalent bonds. The bromine monofluoride molecule contains one bromine atom (the brown sphere) and one fluorine atom (the blue-grey sphere).

Image

Ethanol molecule

This is a colour image of a model of a molecule of ethanol, CH₃CH₂OH. In this model, atoms are represented by coloured spheres held together by grey rods that represent covalent bonds. The molecule contains two carbon atoms (the black spheres), one oxygen atom (the red sphere) and six hydrogen atoms (the grey-white spheres).

Image

Iodine molecule

This is a colour image of a model of a molecule of iodine, I₂. In this model, two iodine atoms are represented by deep red spheres held together by a grey rod that represents a covalent bond.

Image

Hydrogen molecule

This is a colour image of a model of a molecule of hydrogen, H₂. In this model, two hydrogen atoms are represented by grey-white spheres held together by a grey rod that represents a covalent bond.

Image

Nitrogen molecule

This is a colour image of a model of a molecule of nitrogen, N₂. In this model, two nitrogen atoms are represented by blue spheres held together by grey rods that represent a triple covalent bond.

Image

Oxygen molecule

This is a colour image of a model of a molecule of oxygen, O₂. In this model, two oxygen atoms are represented by red spheres held together by grey rods that represent a double covalent bond.

Image

Carbon dioxide molecule

This is a colour image of a model of a molecule of carbon dioxide, CO₂. In this model, atoms are represented by coloured spheres held together by grey rods that represent covalent bonds. The molecule contains one carbon atom (the black sphere) and two oxygen atoms (the red spheres).

Image

Noble gas molecule

This is a colour image of a model of a molecule of a noble gas. The molecule consists of a single atom represented by a coloured sphere. It could be a model of a molecule of any of the noble gases: helium, neon, argon, krypton, xenon or radon.

EagleCat: parabola

Explore the graphs of quadratic equations in two forms: (a) the turning point form, y = a(x – h)² + k, and (b) the intercept form, y = (x – a)(x – b). Observe changes to the turning point and the shape of parabolic graphs through various transformations. Alternately, change the equation and observe changes in the x-intercepts ...

What the world is made of

Use the 'particle model' to explore properties of matter. Compare the arrangement and movement of particles in the three phases of matter: solids, liquids and gases. Explore how substances can change between the three phases. For example, look at what happens when water changes state through a physical process such as melting ...

What the world is made of: modelling matter

Use the 'particle model' to explore properties of matter. Compare the arrangement and movement of particles in the three phases of matter: solids, liquids and gases. Look at the composition of gases in air. This learning object is one in a series of six objects. The series is also packaged as a combined learning object.
