Interactive Video: Chemical Impact on Heart Rate

Engaged Active Learning

Foster a love of science and integrate the science practices at every phase of the instructional cycle. More than virtual labs or simulations, our activities begin with real-world phenomena that students can observe and measure. Interactive video, peer collaboration, and prompt feedback guide them through the process of science, building models, analyzing data, and engaging in scientific discourse.

Embedded Science Practices

Enhance your curriculum and reach more students with phenomena-based interactive learning. Research-backed, adaptable activities are designed to nurture incremental skill building and develop critical thinking. Scaffolding guides students through the scientific process and targeted feedback alerts to mistakes as they are made. Both will empower independent task completion and boost students’ confidence!

Learn How Pivot Interactives Can Enhance Your Curriculum

Pivot Interactives gave me new tools to build a bridge between what students experienced directly and what the calculations described. I also saw the difference in much higher scores on the end-of-unit assessment.
