How many sets of 10 and how many ones are there in numbers greater than 10 but less than 20?


How can I write and compare numbers?


How can I partition a circle into halves and fourths?​


​How can I identify even numbers and split them into two equal groups?


​How can I compare fractions that have the same denominator?


How can I convert centimeters into meters?

each grade-specific hour of curriculum involves a science experiment, an engineering challenge, and a math exploration.

Engineering challenges

force and motion:

What is a force? What forces make you move on a trampoline?


What affects the speed of a falling object the most, its mass or its shape?


​How does the force of gravity affect a falling ball and how does it affect a swinging ball?


Does the length of a pendulum affect its speed and motion?


What direction does gravity make things move?


properties and materials:

How does a spring create force? What properties of a spring change the force it creates?


How can materials be sorted by their physical properties?


Sound:

How is sound created? Can a spring create sound?


How can sound be used to communicate?


Magnetism:

How can a magnet create a push force and a pull force?


How can a magnetic force overcome gravity and how can gravity overcome a magnetic force?


Energy:

When do you have kinetic energy and when do you have potential energy on a trampoline?


How is energy transferred during a double bounce and how does this compare to collisions?
