Genetic Drift part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Examples
In this biology simulation, students use a mathematical simulation of genetic drift to answer questions about the factors that influence this evolutionary process. Students run a series of simulations varying allele frequency and population size and then analyze their data and propose a model to explain their results.

Human Demographics part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Examples
In this biology simulation students explore factors that change human population growth including age at which women begin to bear children, fertility rate and death rate.

Fog Chamber part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Interactive Lecture Demonstrations:Examples
Show how clouds and fog are created with a very simple physical model. Materials needed are: A large 1 gallon jar, latex glove, a little water, and matches.

Copper Extraction Demonstration Tutorial part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Interactive Lecture Demonstrations:Examples
Summary This demonstration uses sulfuric acid and crushed copper ore (malachite) to produce a solution of copper sulfate and carbonic acid in a beaker. When a freshly sanded nail is dropped into the copper sulfate ...

Earthquake Demonstration part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Interactive Lecture Demonstrations:Examples
This demonstration uses an "earthquake machine" constructed from bricks, sand paper, and a winch, to simulate the buildup of elastic strain energy prior to a seismic event and the release of that energy during an earthquake.

Respiratory System part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Visualizations:Visualization Examples
The purpose, components, and functions of the respiratory system are presented in this learning through disussion and visualizations. Participants learn about the nasal cavity, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi, bronchioles, and alveoli.

Plant Anatomy part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Visualizations:Visualization Examples
Tissues and cells of root, stem, and leaf anatomy in both dicots and monocots are investigated in this learning activity.

Plant Water Relations part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Visualizations:Visualization Examples
Plant water relations are presented in this learning activity to help participants understand the components of water potential, explain how water moves through plants, provide examples of plant adaptations to water stress, and have a general understanding of how water potential can be measured.

Digestive System part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Visualizations:Visualization Examples
The digestive system is investigated in this learning activity to help participants learn how food is broken down and prepared for absorption, and list the components of the digestive system as well as their functions. Organs investigated include the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, rectum, and anus.

Nervous System part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Visualizations:Visualization Examples
This learning strategy provides discussion and visualizations of the neuron and its function, as well as components and functions of different parts of the nervous system, including the human brain.
