Explore the Global Dangers and Scientific Foundation of Nuclear Bombs
The Activity

Ever since the first nuclear bomb was detonated in 1945, many countries have tried to put themselves on the international map as a nuclear power. One country that succeeded is Pakistan, and in February 2004, Pakistani scientist Dr. Abdul Qadeer Khan confessed that he spread nuclear secrets and technology to additional countries: North Korea, Libya and Iran. In addition, Pakistan is engaged in an ongoing conflict with India, another nuclear state. Point out the location of each of these countries on a map. Then help students understand these global dangers and their scientific foundation by exploring the sources and properties of nuclear reactions.

Introduce the topic by having students read the Pakistan As a Nuclear Power section of the Facts & Stats page for the FRONTLINE/World story 'Pakistan: On a Razor's Edge.'
http://www.pbs.org/frontlineworld/stories/pakistan/facts.html#03
Allow students a few minutes to react to the reading. Ask, 'Why do you think Pakistan thought it was so important to become a nuclear state?' and 'What are the potential consequences of Dr. Khan's actions?' (Note: For more in-depth information on Dr. Khan's activities, please see Essential Backgrounders From The New York Times
http://www.pbs.org/frontlineworld/stories/pakistan/nytimes.html.

Next, divide students into pairs and have them research how nuclear bombs work. Ask students to pay special attention to the transfer of energy that triggers a nuclear reaction and why such large amounts of energy are released from the nuclear reactions in atomic or hydrogen bombs. Students may find it helpful to begin their research with the HowStuffWorks feature How Nuclear Bombs Work
http://people.howstuffworks.com/nuclear-bomb1.htm.

Student pairs should synthesize their research into a PowerPoint or other type of presentation that they can use to teach another pair in the class about how nuclear bombs work. After each pair has had a turn presenting, allow time for students to give feedback on each other's work and make content corrections on presentations before they are submitted for grading.

Relevant National Standards

Physical Science
Standard 9: Understands the sources and properties of energy

Level III, Benchmark 6Knows that most chemical and nuclear reactions involve a transfer of energy (e.g., heat, light, mechanical motion, electricity)
Standard 10: Understands forces and motion
Level IV, Benchmark 2Knows that nuclear forces are much stronger than electromagnetic forces, which are vastly stronger than gravitational forces; the strength of nuclear forces explains why great amounts of energy are released from the nuclear reactions in atomic or hydrogen bombs and in the Sun and other stars

Track the Discovery, Spread and Control of Disease
The Activity

Create a flow chart following the SARS crisis from its outbreak to the discovery that peptides can prevent the SARS virus from penetrating cells. Students can find information for their charts in the story overview
pbs.org/frontlineworld/stories/hongkong/thestory.html
for 'Hong Kong: Chasing the Virus' and in 'Peptides, Antibodies, Membranes .. What?'.
pbs.org/frontlineworld/stories/hongkong/science.html
Students also can complete their flow charts by watching the video (about 13 minutes long) of this story.

The nurses and doctor did not take hardly any time to listen to my concerns or to fully explain the diagnosis and the plan for recommended care. I feel like a lot of assumptions were made about how my injury happened instead of really listening to me and my pain history, and I wish I had more time to process and ask questions during the appointment. Also, in diagnosing the problem the doctor significantly increased the daily pain level in my foot to where it has become almost impossible to function without pain. Before seeing him I was managing my pain level, but now I mostly walk with a limp because of the way he was manipulating the damaged joint. I wish I had never gone to see the doctor.
