What Determines Gender in Humans? part of Examples
In this activity students examine karyotypes from five individuals to try to identify which chromosomes determine gender in humans. This activity is also a good illustration of meiotic non-disjunction.

Magma Viscosity Demos part of 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.

Using an Applet to Demonstrate a Sampling Distribution part of Examples
Introducing sampling distribution through cooperative learning among students using a group activity. Afterwards, use the sampling distribution applet to illustrate.

Using an Applet to Demonstrate Sampling Distributions of Regression Coefficients part of Examples
This applet simulates a linear regression plot and the corresponding intercept and slope histograms. The program allows the user to change settings such as slope, standard deviation, sample size, and more.

Psychic test part of Examples
Show relative frequency converging to true probability by testing the psychic ability of your students.

Modeling emf, Potential Difference, and Internal Resistance part of Examples
Through class discussion and think-pair-share questions, this activity helps students come to understand the difference between emf and potential difference in electrical circuits. These concepts are broached within the context of internal resistance of batteries.

Rutherford's Model of the Atom part of Examples
Students are asked think-pair-share questions to predict the interaction of alpha particles fired toward the nucleus of an atom. An online applet is used to illustrate the interaction and test students' ideas for the causes of the interaction. This activity uses a resource in the comPADRE partner collection.

Will the egg break? part of Examples
This is a discrepant event that can be used to help students understand applications of the momentum-impulse theorem. Students are first asked to predict and hypothesize what will happen when an egg is thrown into ...

Measuring voltage and current in a DC circuit part of Examples
These exercises target student misconceptions about how to properly measure voltage and current in simple DC circuits by letting them investigate different meter arrangements without fear of damaging equipment. These activities also are designed to lead to other investigations about simple DC circuits.

Interactive Lecture Questions for Single Slit Diffraction part of Examples
This is a set of interactive lecture demonstration questions designed to probe student understanding of single-slit diffraction.
