What Determines Gender in Humans? part of Interactive Lectures: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. -
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.
Nervous System part of Teaching with Visualizations:Examples
This learning strategy provides discussion and visualizations of the neuron and its function, as well as components and functions of different parts of the nervous system, including the human brain.
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.
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.
