    Scientific Uncertainty

    2018-07-25 17:46:51 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Kelly O'Donnell | doi:10.25334/Q4M422

    This video explores what scientists mean when they talk about uncertainty and how it differs from the way this uncertainty is perceived by the public. We start with 2014’s record heat and end up with a discussion how scientists quantify uncertainty.

  10. Geology

    Geology

    2018-07-25 17:39:18 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Kelly O'Donnell | doi:10.25334/Q4VM6K

    In this video, we discuss how studying the rocks and minerals around us can tell us about the history of the planet. We also discuss what makes a scientific law and how those laws are applied in geological studies.

  11. Tools of Seeing

    Tools of Seeing

    2018-07-25 17:33:47 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s): Kelly O'Donnell | doi:10.25334/Q4440Z

    This video really focuses on having a sense of scale, a Number Sense skill. We talk to astronomers, biologists, and geologists about how they use tools to enhance their sight and how this allows them to make meaningful observations in their fields.

  12. Astronomy
