World Population Activity II: Excel part of 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.

Subject: Environmental Science:Human Population, Mathematics:Statistics

World Population Activity I: Excel part of 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.

Subject: Environmental Science:Human Population, Mathematics:Statistics

Wind Surge: Interactive On-line Mac and PC part of 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.

Medicine in the Body part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Spreadsheets:Examples
In this activity, we will explore how the dosage and frequency of a medicine taken affect the amount of medicine present in the blood.

Subject: Mathematics

Wave Superposition: Interactive On-line Mac and PC part of Examples
An Interactive JAVA environment to allow one to look at the linear superposition of up to 4 ocean waves

Subject: Geoscience:Oceanography

Planck Radiation Laws: Excel; Mac or PC part of Examples
Students use an existing Excel workbook to investigate how spectral irradiance from a blackbody radiator depends on temperature, Excel Mac or PC

Subject: Geoscience:Atmospheric Science:Climatology :Solar radiation, Geoscience:Atmospheric Science:Meteorology:Solar and terrestrial radiation

Sea Floor Spreading II part of 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.
