  1. A modified set of problems for whiteboarding, developed by Matt Greenwolfe and Marc Rief has been mentioned in several places, notably Kelly O’Shea’s 7/23/12 Blog post. Kelly O’Shea includes several pages of them in her 7/23 blog.

    Greenwolfe and Rief’s paper titled “Practice the Model Problems” is listed on the ASU Modeling Website, under Resources for the Modeling Classroom. However, the link now leads to an AMTA page that says “NOT FOUND: Apologies, but the page you requested could not be found. Perhaps searching will help.” Searching on that title led to a forum post with today’s date that includes four of the problems (as pdfs that I can’t print or save in Safari – have to try another browser) and a great blog about Next Generation Science Standards. It includes an intro to Modeling for students and parents, and a great video of Frank Noschese addressing an auditorium about how Modeling works.

    Back to the problems: Where can the whole set be found?

    Bob Warzeski

    (E Robert Warzeski – that’s where the Edward comes from. Even AMTA insists that I’m Edward. Computers do not like first initial, middle name)

    1. Hi, I looked on the page and did not find the FCI answers…Are the answers included in the discussion of the FCI?

  2. The link to the dissertation entitled “Modeling Discourse Management – Dwain Desbien” doesn’t seem to go anywhere. What’s the problem?

  3. I just retired from teaching and am looking for an outlet for a Vernier Dynamic System. Lab equipment was a part of the benefits offered to teachers who attended workshops in the “old days” 6 – 7 years ago. I kept the gear when I changed schools, and the last school I worked for didn’t offer physics, so they had no use for it.
    I am looking to sell or trade.

  4. I cannot seem to access the Physical Science Units. They are downloading and opening as garbled text. Help?

    1. If you are using a Windows computer, when you open the folder, at the top of the file list al the files are short (~1 kb) and the file names begin with a “.” If you scroll down you will see another complete file list of much larger files below this first list…these files will open for you as regular word documents. The files with a dot are artifacts of the fact that that they were created on a MacIntosh computer…they don’t appear when you open the folder on a Mac but they do when you open it on a PC. Sorry for the confusion.

    1. I’ve joined as well and the website doesn’t recognize my email, my teacher email, etc. I actually think I have two accounts. I’ve tried to contact AMTA and receive no assistance. They got my money and I guess that is the extent of it. Too bad, I thought that the list serve had much to offer.

  5. A shout out to Earl Legleiter. He was my science teacher in 1981 (yup, way back) and taught me to remain curious about the world around us, true to oneself, resilient in adversity and to keep a sparkle of joy and mischievousness in your eye. I learned a bit of science as well, becoming a geologist and environmental consultant for a while along my way. Thank you.

  6. Hello.

    I just signed up and paid for the resources, as I am very excited to start using these! When will I be able to see the resources on the website?
    Thank you so much!!!

  7. I cannot get access to the materials. I was able to use it last week. could you please let me know what the issue is.

    Thanks so much

  8. We are having a problem with download functions on our website today that is evidently due to an update that was installed last night–we should have it fixed by this evening. I apologize for the interruption in service.

  9. Why would you change the web site days before the school year starts. I don’t have time to mess around with searching for my content. I have been messing around trying to find my Physics content since it was missing from my flash drive and now I can not find it because of the silly dash board that was made. You have turned a user friendly web page into something that is now unusable. Please just return the repository to the way it was when I found it and PAID YOU TO USE!! and in the future plan site changes for a time that makes sense to your users. The last weeks of August is just foolish.

    1. I am sorry you are finding the new repository to be trying. If you contact me at amtaexec@modelinginstruction.org, we can set up a phone call and I can guide you through how to access the resources on the eweblife portal. Or you can download an illustrated guide to navigating the new portal to locate the resources (see the link at the top of the landing page for this site). In truth, we have been trying to make the switch to the new site for months. We couldn’t do it during workshop season which is a very busy time for us, so we did it on a holiday weekend, thinking that the extra day would take some pressure off. Since the wordpress site has been under a denial of service attack, you would likely not have been able to download them there either unless you timed it just right. I would be happy to send you a replacement flash drive if yours isn’t working. Again, I apologize for the inconvenience this has caused. If you are having trouble downloading from the new site please contact me.
