Sun Spot Analysis part of Examples
Introductory students use Excel to graph monthly mean Greenwich sunspot numbers from 1749 to 2004 and perform a spectral analysis of the data using the free software program "Spectra".

Subject: Physics:Astronomy, Geoscience:Atmospheric Science:Meteorology:Solar and terrestrial radiation
Quantitative Skills: Differential Equations and Integrals, Probability and Statistics:Describing Data Distribution, Graphs, Fourier Series, Spectral Analysis

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

Protein Evolution part of Examples
In this activity students explore the evolution of proteins by comparing 2D and 3D alignments of orthologs and paralogs.

Subject: Biology:Evolution, Molecular Biology

Long Term Ecological Resources part of Examples
Students analyze data on temperature and precipitation collected from 26 different Long Term Ecological Research sites and compare them with annual net primary productivity. The students then form an ecological rule to explain their results.

Subject: Biology:Ecology, Environmental Science:Ecosystems

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:Molecular Biology, Evolution:Bioinformatics

Measuring the coefficient of friction of a skater on ice part of Examples
Students use video analysis of ice skaters gliding across the ice to determine the coefficient of friction between the skates and the ice. Materials include instructions and six videos that can be used for analysis.

Subject: Physics:Classical Mechanics:Applications of Newton's Laws, Newton's Second Law, Motion in One Dimension

Analysis of simple harmonic oscillator in a single video clip part of Examples
One video clip, with embedded graphs, can be used to help students understand the mathematical relationships that describe simple harmonic motion.

Subject: Physics:Oscillations & Waves:Oscillations, Physics:Classical Mechanics:Newton's Second Law, Applications of Newton's Laws

Conservation of energy of while rolling down a hill part of Examples
Students analyze video clips of kids rolling down a hill on skates, scooters, and bikes to determine whether mechanical energy is conserved.

Subject: Mathematics:Statistics:Data Collection, Physics:Classical Mechanics:Work and Energy, Physics:Classical Mechanics, Physics

Measuring velocity of objects using video clips part of Examples
Students learn to determine the velocity of moving objects by doing simple analysis of video clips.

Subject: Physics:Classical Mechanics:Gravity, Motion in One Dimension

Ocean Circulation part of Examples
Students view and analyze buoy, satellite, temperature vs. depth data to learn about ocean circulation and how is related to atmospheric circulation.

Subject: Geoscience:Oceanography:Chemical, Geoscience:Atmospheric Science:Climatology :Atmospheric and oceanic circulation, Geoscience:Oceanography:Physical , Ocean-Climate Interactions
