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.

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.

Is It Hot in Here? -- Spreadsheeting Conversions in the English and Metric Systems part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

Spreadsheets Across Curriculum module/Introductory chemistry course. Students build spreadsheets to examine unit conversions between the metric and English systems. Spreadsheet level: Beginner.

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.

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.

The Mole in Chemistry: How do you determine the number of atoms or molecules in everyday items? part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

Spreadsheets across the Curriculum Module. Students build spreadsheets to practice converting between moles, grams, and atomic mass units.

Something is Askew at Mammoth Cave National Park part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum/Geology of National Parks module. Students use the geometric mean and multiplicative standard deviation to examine the right-skewed distribution of nutrient concentrations in water-quality data at Mammoth Cave National Park.
