Investigating the Ocean: Exploring ecological provinces using satellite imagery and oceanographic cruise data part of Examples

Subject: Geoscience:Oceanography, Oceanography:Biological

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

Reflection and Absorption of Light part of Examples
Students use a microcomputer connected to a light sensor and temperature probe to explore the reflection and absorption of light.

Subject: Geoscience:Lunar and Planetary Science, Atmospheric Science:Meteorology:Atmospheric structure and composition, Solar and terrestrial radiation, Physics

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.

Subject: Geography:Geospatial, Physical, Environmental Science:Land Use and Planning

Bioinformatics part of Examples
This exercise contains two interrelated modules that introduce students to modern biological techniques in the area of Bioinformatics, which is the application of computer technology to the management of biological information. The need for Bioinformatics has arisen from the recent explosion of publicly available genomic information, such as that resulting from the Human Genome Project.

Subject: Biology:Diversity, Microbiology

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

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

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

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.

Subject: Physics:Classical Mechanics, Classical Mechanics:Work and Energy

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:Newton's Second Law, Motion in One Dimension, Applications of Newton's Laws
