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.

Earth System Topics: Climate, Atmosphere

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.

Earth System Topics: Solid Earth:Earth Materials, Climate, Atmosphere

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

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

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.

Earth System Topics: Human Dimensions:Population, Human Dimensions, Biosphere

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.

Earth System Topics: Biosphere, Evolution

Sea Floor Spreading I
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.

Earth System Topics: Solid Earth, Oceans

Sea Floor Spreading II
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.

Earth System Topics: Solid Earth, Oceans

Energy Balance Climate Model: Stella Mac and PC
Students explore a Global Energy Balance Climate Model Using Stella II. Response of surface temperature to variations in solar input, atmospheric and surface albedo, atmospheric water vapor and carbon dioxide, volcanic eruptions, and mixed layer ocean depth. Climate feedbacks such as water vapor or ice-albedo can be turned on or off.

Earth System Topics: Atmosphere, Climate

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.

Earth System Topics: Solid Earth:Deformation
