Searching Genbank part of Teaching with Data:Examples
An active problem-based assignment that uses the Genbank database to teach the basics of molecular biology and molecular evolution
JiTT-Scientific Method part of Just in Time Teaching:Examples
A "Just in Time Teaching" question about he scientific method with follow-up class room activities and an exam question.
Plant Pest Control part of Teaching with Data:Examples
This learning experience introduces participants to scientific inquiry, hypothesis formation, experimental design, data analysis, and interpretation.
Translation simulation part of 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.
Evolution, Natural Selection and Speciation part of Conceptual Models:Examples
In this out of class tutorial, students explore several examples of natural selection and speciation.
Light Reactions of Photosynthesis part of Teaching with Visualizations:Examples
Light reactions of photosynthesis including location and steps for non-cyclic and cyclic photophosphorylation.
Dark Reactions of Photosynthesis part of Teaching with Visualizations:Examples
The dark reactions of photosynthesis (Calvin Cycle) are presented in this learning experience to show where these processes take place in the plant as well as the specific reactions involved.
Plant Growth Regulation part of Teaching with Visualizations:Examples
Plant growth regulators, including auxin, gibberellin, cytokinin, abscisic acid, and ethylene, are investigated in this learning activity to demonstrate how these chemicals (hormones) affect plant growth and development.
Mitosis and Meiosis part of Teaching with Visualizations:Examples
Drawings and animations, are used to help participants understand the differences between and steps involved in mitosis and meiosis. The cell cycle as well as individual steps of mitosis and meiosis are included in this learning material.
Genetic Drift part of Mathematics and Statistics Models:Examples
In this biology simulation, students use a mathematical simulation of genetic drift to answer questions about the factors that influence this evolutionary process. Students run a series of simulations varying allele frequency and population size and then analyze their data and propose a model to explain their results.
