Oil Demand and Consumption part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Process of Science:Examples

Data modeling activity using oil reserve and consumption data. Students predict when oil reserves meet or exceed reserves.

Learn more about this review process.

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.

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.

Constructing Phylogenetic Trees: The Whippo Story part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

An interactive lecture in which students use data on feeding habits and habitat, skeletons, and DNA sequences to draw phylogenetic trees.

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 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.

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.

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

Magma Viscosity Demos part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

This is an interactive lecture where students answer questions about demonstrations shown in several movie files. They learn to connect what they have learned about molecules, phases of matter, silicate crystal structures, and igneous rock classification with magma viscosity, and to connect magma viscosity with volcano explosiveness and morphology.

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).
