NASA Connect - Good Stress

NASA Connect video containing five segments as described in the following. First segment of Good Stress explains the three types of stress: physical, mental and emotional. The first segment next asks students a series of inquiry based question about data. The first segment continues with an explanation of how data is collected, organized, analyzed and why data analysis is important. The Good Stress segment explains what scatter plots are and how graphing these plots show different trends. The first segment contains an activity that asks students to determine the trend in a scatter plot. Second segment of Good Stress explains the types of muscles in the body, why astronauts muscles weaken in space and some ways of taking care of your muscles. The Muscles segment describes the difference between skeletal muscle, smooth muscle, and cardiac muscle. The Muscles segment also explains the rehabilitation of astronauts returning from space. Third segment contains a program hands on activity that explores the effect of stress on muscles in the hand. The program hands on activity reviews scatterplots, box and whisker plots and stem and leaf plots. Fourth segment of Good Stress reviews what we have learned up to this point in the program. Fifth segment of Good Stress describes the different types of bones in the body and explains the purpose of the skeletal system. The Bones segment describes what bones are made out of and how bones interact with muscles in the body. The Bones segment discusses what people should do to maintain healthy bones. The fifth segment ends with a discussion of how much bone loss astronauts can expect when they spend time in space.
