How Many Is A Million? part of Rates and Time:Visualizations with Teaching Notes
Roger Steinberg, Department of Natural Sciences, Del Mar College Description To help students visualize the immensity of geologic time, or even the immensity of just one million years, I have created a very large ...

Subject: Geoscience:Geology:Historical Geology

Weathering Experiment part of Introductory Courses:Activities
This project has students dirty several dishes equally and design experiments to determine which analogs of geologic processes are most efficient for removing the baked-on food. Students calculate rates of ...

Half Life Model part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Interactive Lecture Demonstrations:Examples
While working in groups to facilitate peer tutoring, students manipulate a hands-on, physical model to better comprehend the nature of half life. Students use the model to simulate the decay of radionuclides. The ...

Whose Fault Is It Anyway? part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Games:Examples
This game has students simulate the propagation of P and S waves after an earthquake and to use the lag between these to determine where in the simulation the earthquake occurred.

Subject: Environmental Science:Natural Hazards:Earthquakes, Geoscience:Geology

Fracture Fundamentals: A Cheesy Analog part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Interactive Lecture Demonstrations:Examples
This activity has students make small cuts in processed cheese food and then apply shear stress perpendicular or parallel to the cuts to see what sort of fracturing will occur.

Subject: Geoscience:Geology:Structural Geology:Microstructures, Deformation Mechanisms, Fabrics

Using Lab Measurements to Determine the Feasibility of a Photovoltaic Panel part of Integrate:Workshops and Webinars:Systems, Society, Sustainability and the Geosciences:Activities
Using Lab Measurements to determine the power output of a solar module and the economic feasibility of photovoltaic panels

Subject: Environmental Science:Sustainability, Engineering, Environmental Science:Energy:Renewable & Alternative Energy, Energy Principles

Thermohaline Circulation Demonstration part of Oceanography:Activities
This activity helps the students to visualize the effects of temperature and salinity on water density, and the resulting thermohaline circulation. Important processes visualized in this demonstration are ...

Sonar Demonstration -- Human Sound Wave part of Oceanography:Activities
Sonar technology allowed scientists to produce high-resolution maps of the sea floor for the first time. This sonar demonstration uses a Human Sound Wave to image the "sea floor" in a lecture hall. In ...
