Estimating Primary Production in the Oceans from Satellite Data part of Examples
Annotating Change in Satellite Images part of Examples
During this exercise, students compare a series of satellite images taken 3-4 years apart to investigate the effects of human land use and annotate the images using ImageJ software.
Seismicity and Relative Risk part of Examples
This activity introduces students to using real-time data about earthquakes to make decisions.
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.
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.
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.
Conservation of energy of a rollercoaster using high speed video part of Examples
A high speed video clip of a roller coaster is used as an example of conservation of mechanical energy. Student use the video to determine whether mechanical energy is conserved while the roller coaster rolls up, and then back down a hil.
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.
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 ...
