Human Demographics part of Mathematics and Statistics Models:Examples
In this biology simulation students explore factors that change human population growth including age at which women begin to bear children, fertility rate and death rate.
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.
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.
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.
Respiratory System part of Teaching with Visualizations:Examples
The purpose, components, and functions of the respiratory system are presented in this learning through disussion and visualizations. Participants learn about the nasal cavity, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi, bronchioles, and alveoli.
Plant Anatomy part of Teaching with Visualizations:Examples
Tissues and cells of root, stem, and leaf anatomy in both dicots and monocots are investigated in this learning activity.
Plant Water Relations part of Teaching with Visualizations:Examples
Plant water relations are presented in this learning activity to help participants understand the components of water potential, explain how water moves through plants, provide examples of plant adaptations to water stress, and have a general understanding of how water potential can be measured.
