GT Math and Science -- Accelerated Activities

GT Math and Science provides a broad range of math and science activities targeting the middle school STEM curriculum. Most of the content pages contain online assessments of the reading material.

Of special interest for Gifted Students is the MathMol (Mathematics and Molecules) activity, The Edinformatics Science Challenge, and the Rotating Labs --Integrated Math and Science Labs-- Mathematical Relations and Science Principles ...

MathMol -- Mathematics and Molecules

MathMol (Mathematics and Molecules) is designed to serve as an introductory starting point for those interested in the field of molecular modeling. MathMol is an ideal STEM activity for K-12 students since it introduces molecular structure as it relates to mathematics and utilizes 3D visualization technology. The site is interactive not just in the software used but we also insert online question to test understanding. MathMol was originally developed at the NYU Visualization lab in 1996, and tested in several accelerated middle school classrooms. Since most of the software originally used is currently outdated, MathMol is now in the process of being updated to HTML5 standards using Jsmol. See MathMol Home Page

Take the Edinformatics Challenge

Edinformatics has designed a two part -end of year- 8th grade science test that accesses both "Knowledge and Concepts" (Part I), and "Reasoning and Analysis Skills" (part II). Most of the science material used for the test is consistent with current intermediate school textbooks. Several questions require more rigorous mathematics that is contained within the newly initiated Common Core Standards and the NGSS (Next Generation Science Standards).
