Bubbles in Magmas part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build a spreadsheet and apply the ideal gas law to model the velocity of a bubble rising in a viscous magma.

Learn more about this review process.

How Do We Estimate Magma Viscosity? part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build a spreadsheet to examine how magma viscosity varies with temperature, fraction of crystals, and water content using the non-Arrhenian VFT model.

How are Flow Conditions in Volcanic Conduits Estimated? part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build a spreadsheet to calculate velocity of rising magma in steady-state Plinian eruptions using conservation of mass and momentum.

How Do We Estimate Melt Density? part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

SSAC Physical Volcanology module. Students build spreadsheets to estimate melt density at high temperatures and pressures from the thermodynamic properties of silicates.

Calibrating a Pipettor part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum activity. In advance of an actual lab activity, students virtually simulate the calibration of a laboratory micropipettor. QL: Accuracy and precision.

Chemical Equilibrium -- What Are the Characteristics of Equilibrium Reactions? part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

Spreadsheets Across Curriculum module. Students build spreadsheets to compare the time course of a reaction that goes to completion to that of an equilibrium reaction.

Buffer Capacity in Chemical Equilibrium: How long can you hyperventilate before severe alkalosis sets in? part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

From Isotopes to Temperature: Working With A Temperature Equation part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum module. Students build a spreadsheet to examine from a dataset the relation between oxygen isotopes in corals and the temperature of surrounding seawater.

How Sweet Is Your Tea? -- Practical experience with solutions and concentration part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum module. Students build a spreadshet to calculate grams solute to add to liters solvent to produce solution of desired concentration (mol/L).

Radioactive Decay and Popping Popcorn -- Understanding the Rate Law part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum module. Students build spreadsheets to forward model an example of exponential decay and interpret the meaning of the decay constant.
