Effect of Initial Value on Graph of Exponential Function (C>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 initial value, C, on the y-intercept and position of an exponential function where C>0 and k is an arbitrarily fixed value in f(x)=Ce^(kx).

Effect of Coefficient of x^2 on Parabola Vertex (a>0) 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 vertex of a parabola where a>0, b>0 and b and c are fixed values in f(x)=ax^2+bx+c.

Chemical Equilibrium Misconceptions part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Examples

This STELLA modeling and writing assignment helps students confront and replace common misconceptions about chemical equilibrium.

Stratospheric Ozone part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Data:Examples

Students explore observational data from ozone-sondes, TOMS, and UARS measurements to learn about changes in stratospheric ozone over the past several decades.

Water Quality-Total Dissolved Solids part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Data:Examples

Students use a microcomputer connected to a conductivity probe to measure the total dissolved solids in local area water samples.

Sea Floor Spreading I part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Examples

In this introductory Excel tutorial (Activity I) students use Excel to explore the geodynamics model equation for ocean depth around a sea-floor spreading center. For students with no prior Excel experience.

Sea Floor Spreading II part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Examples

Students import ocean bathymetry data from text files, they then use Excel to graph these observations along with model prediction to assess the model's ability to simulated the observed topographic features of the North Atlantic.
