Subject: Science (9 - 12), or Transportation, Distribution, and Logistics (9 - 12)
Title: Automotive Brakes Hydraulic System Diagnosis
Description: The hydraulic distribution system is the heart of the brake system. The effects of Pascal's Law allow for vehicles weighing many thousands of pounds to be brought to a stop with minimal effort. Understanding of hydraulics is the keystone to successful brake repair.

Subject: Science (9 - 12)
Title: Gas laws
Description: The teacher will preform a demonstration of imploding a coke can. This will be a lead in demonstration for the gas laws. We will then discuss Boyle's law. After this discussion we will conduct the science in motion lab "Boyle's Law". Each lab group will load their graphical results into a powerpoint presentation to be viewed by the class.This lesson plan was created as a result of the Girls Engaged in Math and Science, GEMS Project funded by the Malone Family Foundation.

General Chemistry Online
http://antoine.frost...
This website, presented by the Chemistry Department at Frostburg State University, contains information and resources for those studying chemistry. Some of the features include a database of chemical compounds, lecture notes, tutorials, a glossary, and a chemistry trivia quiz.

### Interactives/Games

Experiment with a Helium Balloon
Experiment with a helium balloon, a hot air balloon, or a rigid sphere filled with different gases. Discover what makes some balloons float and others sink. Students determine what causes the balloon, rigid sphere, and helium balloon to rise up or fall down in the box by changing the pressure and molecules when teachers preset the conditions. Predict how changing a variable among P, V, T, and number influences the motion of the balloons. Requires Javascript.

Boyle’s Law and Charles’ Law
http://www.explorele...
This website allows students to observe the movement of particles of an ideal gas at a variety of temperatures for 5 minutes. Students investigate the properties of an ideal gas by performing experiments in which the temperature is held constant (Boyle's Law), and others in which the pressure remains fixed (Charles' Law). The pressure is controlled through the placement of masses on the lid of the container, and temperature is controlled with an adjustable heat source.
