Translation simulation part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Conceptual Models:Examples

This module introduces students to the basics behind translation of a messenger RNA sequence into protein. In addition to text and movies, there are interactive shockwave animations that allow students to move ribosomes and tRNAs to perform translation.

World Population Activity II: Excel part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Examples

(Activity 2 of 2)In this intermediate Excel tutorial students import UNEP World population data/projections, graph this data, and then compare it to the mathematical model of logistic growth.

World Population Activity I: Excel part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Examples

(Activity 1 of 2) This activity is primarily intended as an introductory tutorial on using Excel. Students use Excel to explore population dynamics using the Logistic equation for (S-shaped) population growth.

Wind Surge: Interactive On-line Mac and PC part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Examples

Wind surge is a JAVA based applet for exploring how water level on the windward and leeward side of a basin depends on wind speed, basin length, water depth, and boundary type.

Mass Balance Model part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Examples

Students are introduced to the concept of mass balance, flow rates, and equilibrium using an online interactive water bucket model.

Waves Through Earth: Interactive Online Mac and PC part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Examples

Students vary the seismic P and S wave velocity through each of four concentric regions of Earth and match "data" for travel times vs. angular distance around Earth's surface from the source to detector.

Daisyworld: Stella Mac or PC part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Examples

After constructing a Stella model of Daisyworld students perform guided experiments to explore the behavior of Daisyworld to changes in model parameters and assumptions.

Daisyworld: Interactive On-line PC and Mac part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Examples

Students use a JAVA interface design by R.M. MacKay to explore the Daisy World model. The JAVA interface comes with a link to a 6-page student activity page in PDF format.

Energy Balance Climate Model: Stella Mac and PC part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Examples

Students explore a Global Energy Balance Climate Model Using Stella II. Response of surface temperature to variations in solar input, atmospheric and surface albedo, atmospheric water vapor and carbon dioxide, volcanic eruptions, and mixed layer ocean depth. Climate feedbacks such as water vapor or ice-albedo can be turned on or off.

Linear Systems and Matrices part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Just in Time Teaching:Examples
