US Historical Climate: Excel Statistical

Students import US Historical Climate Network mean temperature data into Excel from a station of their choice and use Excel for statistical calculations, graphing, and linear trend estimates.

Vostok Ice Core: Excel (Mac or PC)

Students use Excel to graph and analyze Vostok ice core data (160,000 years of Ice core data from Vostok Station). Data includes ice age, ice depth, carbon dioxide, methane, dust, and deuterium isotope relative abundance.

Daisyworld: Stella Mac or PC

After constructing a Stella model of Daisyworld students perform guided experiments to explore the behavior of Daisyworld to changes in model parameters and assumptions.

Mass Balance Model

Students are introduced to the concept of mass balance, flow rates, and equilibrium using an online interactive water bucket model.

Waves Through Earth: Interactive Online Mac and PC

Students vary the seismic P and S wave velocity through each of four concentric regions of Earth and match "data" for travel times vs. angular distance around Earth's surface from the source to detector.

World Population Activity II: Excel

(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

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

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.

Chemical Equilibrium Misconceptions

This STELLA modeling and writing assignment helps students confront and replace common misconceptions about chemical equilibrium.

Conics and Reflection

This is a discovery bases lesson on the reflective properties of the conics: parabolas, ellipses, and hyperbolas.
