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 ...

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 ...
