This classroom activity presents College Algebra students with a ConcepTest, a Question of the Day, and a Write-pair-share activity concerning the effect of the coefficient of x^0 (i.e., the constant, c) on the vertex of a parabola where a and b are arbitrarily fixed values in f(x)=ax^2+bx+c.

Effect of Coefficient of x^2 on Parabola Shape part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

This classroom activity presents College Algebra students with a ConcepTest, a Question of the Day, and a Write-pair-share activity concerning the effect of the coefficient of x^2 on the shape of a parabola where b and c are arbitrarily fixed values in f(x)=ax^2+bx+c.

Problem-Based Learning: UV Menace part of Examples

Students work as a team to determine the causes, effects, and solutions to ozone depletion. They work out what they need to know, and split the team up to research different parts of the issue.

The Candle Icebreaker part of MnSCU Partnership:PKAL-MnSCU Activities

Small groups of students examine a candle to consider its chemical properties. Class discussion follows to consider macro vs. molecular events, energy, phase changes, etc.

Learning to Paraphrase: A Group Activity part of MnSCU Partnership:PKAL-MnSCU Activities

This is a short paper assignment assigned to groups of 3 that teaches students how to paraphrase.

Investigating the Modernity of the University Library part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Campus-Based Learning:Examples

Students will investigate the modernity of the university library by designing and implementing a complex survey design.

Science on a Skateboard - Applications of Newton's Third Law part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

A think, pair, share activity with Socratic questioning to help students begin to understand rocket propulsion.

How well can hand size predict height? part of Examples

This activity is deigned to introduce the concepts of bivariate relationships. It is one of the hands-on activities of the ‘real-time online hands-on activities’. Students collect their own data, enter and retrieve the data in real time. Data are stored in the web database and are shared on the net.

Statistics and Error Rates in Death Penalty Cases part of Examples

Nature of the chi-square distribution part of Examples

Explaining the chi-square and F distributions in terms of the behavior of variables constructed by generating random samples of normal variates and summing the sqaures of the values.

Think-Pair-Share Analysis of the Operation of a Metal Detector part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

The activity presents a Think-Pair-Share analysis of a metal detector including a simulation.

Histogram Sorting Using Cooperative Learning part of Examples

Intended as an early lesson in an introductory statistics course, this lesson uses cooperative learning methods to introduce distributions. Students develop awareness of the different versions of particular shapes (e.g., different types of skewed distributions, or different types of normal distributions), and that there is a difference between models (normal, uniform) and characteristics (skewness, symmetry, etc.).

Body Measures: Exploring Distributions and Graphs Using Cooperative Learning part of Examples

This lesson is intended as an early lesson in an introductory statistics course. The lesson introduces distributions, and the idea that distributions help us understand central tendencies and variability. Cooperative learning methods, real data, and structured interaction emphasize an active approach to teaching statistical concepts and thinking.

Understanding the standard deviation: What makes it larger or smaller? part of Examples

Using cooperative learning methods, this activity helps students develop a better intuitive understanding of what is meant by variability in statistics.
