Thermal Energy
Part of the MIT OpenCourseWare project, this course from the Department of Aeronautics and Astronautics, provides a syllabus, lecture notes, problem sets, quizzes and examination questions. The lecture notes (in PDF format) discuss: fundamental concepts of thermodynamics; the second law of thermodynamics; applications of thermodynamics, e.g. propulsion and power cycles, thermochemistry; and heat transfer. This course is taught in four main parts. The first is a review of fundamental thermodynamic concepts, and is followed by the second law. Next are applications of thermodynamics to engineering systems, and the course concludes with fundamentals of heat transfer (e.g. heat exchange in aerospace devices). Teachers can consult this site when information is needed for lesson planning purposes.

CSE Physics: Heat Transfer: CONDUCTION
This well designed website allows the site visitor to look at all three methods of heat transfer at the atomic level. This website consists of several pages each with an animation showing how the atoms in solids behave when heat is applied. For example in one scene the animation on that page shows that as more heat is applied to a solid the atoms vibrate more, the bonds between atoms are shaken more, and this passes vibrations on to the next atom, and so on. The interactive component of the site is the ability to advance each animated page scene by “clicking” an onscreen button. The site’s infrastructure presents information with bright colors and animated action. The animations are conceptually clear, well designed and developmentally appropriate for MS students. Teachers can use this website like a slideshow in their classroom presentations and/or assign the site to students as a visual tutorial.

The Course on Temperature and Heat
This website was created to accompany a distance learning course in science teaching for middle school teachers. There are 10 units each unit starts with an exploration (simple qualitative investigations) of the subject of the unit, followed by two activities (more formal investigations, frequently having a quantitative component). The sections "About" are a few pages of text and pictures explaining the relevant scientific concepts. The final section "Discussion of" presents some questions for the participants to discuss. They email their discussion to the workshop instructors. In addition, many sections have an additional page "Why study (the subject of this unit. The site’ homepage is organized under the following headings: “Temperature,”“Thermal equilibrium,”“Thermal expansion,” "Liquid crystal" thermal sensing sheet,” “Thermal conduction,” “Convection and Radiation,” “Conversion of other forms of energy into thermal energy,” “Phase change,” “How temperature and energy are related,” “Irreversibility.”

Conduction, Convection, and Radiation
With the help of simple, teacher-led demonstration activities, students learn the basic concepts of heat transfer by means of conduction, convection, and radiation. Students then apply these concepts as they work in teams to solve two problems. One problem requires that they maintain the warm temperature of one soda can filled with water at approximately body temperature, and the other problem is to cause an identical soda can of warm water to cool as much as possible during the same thirty-minute time interval. Students design their solutions using only common, everyday materials. They record the water temperatures in their two soda cans every five minutes, and prepare line graphs in order to visually compare their results to the temperature of an unaltered control can of water.

Methods of Heat Transfer
The lesson on this webpage is designed to help students better understand conduction, convection, and radiation as methods of heat transfer in solids, liquids and gases. This lesson consist of a series of questions in which the student reads related material and conducts activities found on links to external websites to answer each question. When the activities are completed the students will take a quiz designed to assess their understanding of the material covered in the lesson. There is also a link to a fun web based interactive online “heat” game.”

What's Hot and What's Not?
With the help of simple, teacher-led demonstration activities, students learn the basic physics of heat transfer by means of conduction, convection, and radiation. They also learn about examples of heating and cooling devices, from stove tops to car radiators, that they encounter everyday in their homes, schools, and modes of transportation. Since in our everyday lives there are many times that we want to prevent heat transfer, students also consider ways that conduction, convection, and radiation can be reduced or prevented from occurring.
