Interactive Game, Video Clips, Lesson Plans and Assessments
Give students a ticket to ride! ProportionLand invites middle school students to “reason” their way through eight brain-boosting interactive attractions at a virtual amusement park. As students hop on and enjoy the rides, they explore and apply proportional reasoning skills to solve a variety of science-based, real world problems. Follow the “5E” learning cycle―to engage, explore, explain, extend and evaluate―roller coasters, an electric car, a parachute drop and more to gain a deeper understanding of distance, weight, balance, energy, and force.
ProportionLand is an initiative of the STEM Collaborative made possible in part by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
