* **[[swbq:emsw:syswtemperaturerepresentations|Representations of Temperature in Two Dimensions]]** //(Estimated time: 5 minutes)//: This small whiteboard questions prompts students to think about ways in which to represent temperature in two dimensions which is an example of a two dimensional scalar field.   * **[[swbq:emsw:syswtemperaturerepresentations|Representations of Temperature in Two Dimensions]]** //(Estimated time: 5 minutes)//: This small whiteboard questions prompts students to think about ways in which to represent temperature in two dimensions which is an example of a two dimensional scalar field.
-  * **Surfaces Activity I** //(Estimated time: 5 minutes)//: This small group activity first has students draw lines of "isoheight" on the surfaces. Next, students are given topographic maps which correspond to the surface and asked to match the surface to the contours using their "isoheights". This requires students to become familiar with two representations of a two-dimensional scalar field and work between the two representations. +  * **[[courses:activities:vfact:vfsurfheight|Isoheights on Surfaces]]** //(Estimated time: 5 minutes)//: This small group activity first has students draw lines of "isoheight" on the surfaces.

* **[[swbq:mmsw:syswscalar|Scalar Field Examples]]** //(Estimated time: 5 minutes)//: This small whiteboard question is prompted by a definition of a scalar field in terms of the temperature. Students are asked to give examples of scalar fields and responses may include sound intensity, mass density, charge density, and electrostatic potential.   * **[[swbq:mmsw:syswscalar|Scalar Field Examples]]** //(Estimated time: 5 minutes)//: This small whiteboard question is prompted by a definition of a scalar field in terms of the temperature.
