Applying Lessons Learned to the Volcanic Risk at Mt. Rainier part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Jigsaws:Examples

In this jigsaw-method activity on subduction zone volcanism, students apply lessons learned from four historic eruptions to the volcanic hazards associated with Mt. Rainier in the Pacific Northwest.

The Anatomy of a Rate Law part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Quantitative Writing:Examples

This assignment teaches geochemistry students to explain the mathematical forms of rate laws, and organize paragraphs in their writing assignments properly.

Effect of Coefficient of x^0 on Parabola Vertex 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^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 Proportionality Constant on Exponential Graph (k < 0) part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

This classroom activity presents College Algebra students with a ConcepTest and a Question of the Day activity concerning the effect of the proportionality constant, k, on the y-intercept and position of an exponential graph where k<0 and C is an arbitrarily fixed value in f(x)=Ce^(kx).
