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.

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.

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.

Fishing Game: Stella PC and Mac
