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.
Long Term Ecological Resources part of Teaching with Data:Examples
Students analyze data on temperature and precipitation collected from 26 different Long Term Ecological Research sites and compare them with annual net primary productivity. The students then form an ecological rule to explain their results.
Protein Evolution part of Teaching with Data:Examples
In this activity students explore the evolution of proteins by comparing 2D and 3D alignments of orthologs and paralogs.
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.
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
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.
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.
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. -
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.
