World Population Activity I: Excel part of Examples

(Activity 1 of 2) This activity is primarily intended as an introductory tutorial on using Excel. Students use Excel to explore population dynamics using the Logistic equation for (S-shaped) population growth.

World Population Activity II: Excel part of Examples

(Activity 2 of 2)In this intermediate Excel tutorial students import UNEP World population data/projections, graph this data, and then compare it to the mathematical model of logistic growth.

Genetic Drift part of Examples

In this biology simulation, students use a mathematical simulation of genetic drift to answer questions about the factors that influence this evolutionary process. Students run a series of simulations varying allele frequency and population size and then analyze their data and propose a model to explain their results.

Human Demographics part of Examples

In this biology simulation students explore factors that change human population growth including age at which women begin to bear children, fertility rate and death rate.

Sea Floor Spreading II part of Examples

Students import ocean bathymetry data from text files, they then use Excel to graph these observations along with model prediction to assess the model's ability to simulated the observed topographic features of the North Atlantic.

Sea Floor Spreading II part of Examples

Students import ocean bathymetry data from text files, they then use Excel to graph these observations along with model prediction to assess the model's ability to simulated the observed topographic features of the North Atlantic.

Planck Radiation Laws: Excel; Mac or PC part of Examples

Wave Superposition: Interactive On-line Mac and PC part of Examples

An Interactive JAVA environment to allow one to look at the linear superposition of up to 4 ocean waves

Sea Floor Spreading I part of Examples

In this introductory Excel tutorial (Activity I) students use Excel to explore the geodynamics model equation for ocean depth around a sea-floor spreading center. For students with no prior Excel experience.

Sun Path: Interactive On-line Mac or PC part of Examples

Students use SunPath in the yearly mode to investigate seasonal changes in sunrise, sunset, length of day and sun altitude at their own latitude. JAVA activity for Mac or PC.
