Monohybrid Fruit Fly Crosses: A Simulation part of Examples
This assignment uses a computer simulation of fruit fly genetics to have students design and interpret monohybrid crosses of a trait with simple dominant and recessive alleles. Detailed instructions with animated examples, background material, a sample report and a rubric are included.

Subject: Biology:Evolution, Genetics

Phenylketonuira part of Examples
In this activity, students are assigned different alleles of the gene for phenylalanine hydroxylase to research using OMIM (Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man). They are then asked to both explain and illustrate how this mutation may cause the disease phenylketonuria (PKU).

Subject: Biology:Evolution:Bioinformatics, Biology:Molecular Biology

Water Quality-Total Dissolved Solids part of Examples
Students use a microcomputer connected to a conductivity probe to measure the total dissolved solids in local area water samples.

Subject: Geoscience:Oceanography:Chemical, Environmental Science:Water Quality and Quantity:Surface Water , Geoscience:Geology:Geochemistry, Geoscience:Hydrology:Surface Water:Water Quality/Chemistry

Plant Pest Control part of Examples
This learning experience introduces participants to scientific inquiry, hypothesis formation, experimental design, data analysis, and interpretation.

Subject: Biology

Searching Genbank part of Examples
An active problem-based assignment that uses the Genbank database to teach the basics of molecular biology and molecular evolution

Subject: Biology:Genetics, Molecular Biology, Evolution

Electrical Analysis of Wind Power part of Examples
For this experiment, students use a DC motor as a generator and various shaped turbine designs to test which design produces the most electrical power. Using a fan to generate the "wind", students attach ...

Subject: Environmental Science:Energy:Renewable & Alternative Energy

Seismicity and Relative Risk part of Examples
This activity introduces students to using real-time data about earthquakes to make decisions.

Environmental impacts of oil production in Alaska part of Examples
An activity designed to enable the students to access the impact of oil-development on environment in Alaska. Students will draw conclusion based on various data and reading various views.

Subject: Environmental Science:Energy:Fossil Fuels,

Estimating Primary Production in the Oceans from Satellite Data part of Examples

Subject: Geoscience:Oceanography:Biological, Chemical, Geoscience:Oceanography

Using Satellite Data and Google Earth to Explore the Shape of Ocean Basins and Bathymetry of the Sea Floor part of Examples
This activity is for an introductory oceanography course. It is designed to allow students to use various tools (satellite images, Google Earth) to explore the shape of the sea floor and ocean basins in order to gain a better understanding of both the processes that form ocean basins, as well as how the shape of ocean basins influences physical and biological processes.
