Do you like LEGOs? Do you like power laws? If you answered yes to both (which, if you’re an astronomer, you most likely did), then you’re in luck — today’s authors demonstrate how to use LEGOs to teach about power laws and mass functions!
Over the last few years, we have been publishing Astrobites that students wrote for their courses. This is how those bites came to be!
Do common curricula used in physics classrooms follow the principles of Universal Design? Today’s article, written by Nick Young of PERbites, details the findings of just such an investigation and reports possible modifications to improve accessibility of physics education.
In 2018, the National Academy of Science, Engineering and Math released a report detailing the current state of graduate education in STEM fields. Included is a list of recommendations that stakeholders should follow to address problem areas.
TAs are important in student learning, so how can we better prepare TAs to teach? This is the first post in a collaboration between PERbites and Astrobites on science education.
Use these three lesson plans and classroom materials to integrate Astrobites into your undergraduate or graduate course.
