Gizmo of the Week: Subtractive Colors! Subtractive colors are the colors that come from inks and pigments. Pigments absorb light, and each different type of pigment absorbs a different wavelength of light. In the Subtractive Colors Gizmo, students learn how three primary colors of pigment (cyan, magenta, and yellow) can be mixed to create shades of blue, green, orange, brown—or any other color. If all three primary colors are mixed together at maximum intensity, the result is black. Indeed, most of the black ink in pens, markers, and printers is made from a range of different colored inks blended together. http://j.mp/2pcC3tw
Move spots of yellow, cyan, and magenta pigment on a white surface. As the colors overlap, other colors can be seen due to color subtraction. The color of most things you see--such as cars, leaves, paintings, houses, and clothes--are due to color subtraction.

Gizmo of the Week: Exponents and Power Rules! The Exponents and Power Rules Gizmo walks students step-by-step through simplifying complex exponent expressions. In the Gizmo, students apply the rules of simplifying exponents by selecting from a set of possible expressions. Calculations are done automatically so students can focus on the rules, and feedback is provided at each step so students can quickly correct errors. As they work through the problems in the Gizmo, students gain the confidence they need to simplify any exponential expression. After using the Gizmo, students can apply their skills to the traditional pencil-and-paper problems provided in the Student Exploration Sheet. http://j.mp/2oOWP2p

Gizmo of the Week: Temperature and Particle Motion! A fundamental concept in kinetics is the relationship between particle velocity and temperature. Temperature is a measure of the average kinetic energy of particles, and depends on their speed and mass. In the Temperature and Particle Motion Gizmo, students can explore how the temperature and molecular weight of a gas relates to the distribution of particle velocities. The Gizmo includes a simulation that shows how particles in a gas collide and how momentum and kinetic energy are transferred between particles. The distribution of particle velocities is represented by a graph of the Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution that includes the most probable velocity, the mean velocity, and the root mean square velocity. http://j.mp/2nTWMhy
Observe the movement of particles of an ideal gas at a variety of temperatures. A histogram showing the Maxwell-Boltzmann velocity distribution is shown, and the most probable velocity, mean velocity, and root mean square velocity can be calculated. Molecules of different gases can be compared.

New Science Gizmo: Melting Points! The physical properties of a solid are closely related to the types and relative strengths of the chemical bonds holding the solid together. In the new Melting Points Gizmo, students can explore these properties by collecting melting and boiling point data for a variety of substances. This is done using a realistic capillary tube apparatus similar to what students might use in the laboratory. Just as in the laboratory, all data is collected in at least two rounds: an approximate value that is found by increasing the temperature quickly, and then an accurate reading found by slowly heating the sample close to the transition temperature. For each sample, students can compare observations at the macroscopic level to a microscopic view that illustrates the motions of individual atoms or molecules. http://j.mp/2oBW0dH
Every substance has unique transition points, or temperatures at which one phase (solid, liquid, or gas) transitions to another. Use a realistic melting point apparatus to measure the melting points, boiling points, and/or sublimation points of different substances and observe what these phase chang...
