Real-Life Experiments Pique Students' Interest
Designed to be used in conjunction with Team Labs' computer-based Personal Science Laboratory, Fusion Series is a middle school integrated math and science curriculum that combines science, technology and math into 12 stimulating and fun experiments. Following the National Science Content Standards, the program uses a variety of unique performance-assessment tools, and includes related references to printed materials and Web sites, to expand the scope of experiments beyond the classroom. Experiments include Flying Saucer, Banana Batteries, Seismic Tremors and more. Distributed in a 3-ring loose-leaf binder with accompanying CD-ROM, the Teacher/Student Master software allows network distribution and easy onscreen viewing, as well as file modifications via Microsoft Word and Adobe Acrobat.
