World Population Activity I: Excel

(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.

Mass Balance Model

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

Wind Surge: Interactive On-line Mac and PC

Wind surge is a JAVA based applet for exploring how water level on the windward and leeward side of a basin depends on wind speed, basin length, water depth, and boundary type.

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.

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.

Sun Path: Interactive On-line Mac or PC

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.

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.

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.
