Simple Mendelian Genetics: An interactive lecture using "DNA from the Beginning" part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

An interactive lecture that uses flash animations showing the researcher and their experiments that were used to develop the basic concepts in Mendelian genetics. Includes multiple choice questions students can answer in class.

Rivers: Short In-class Activity part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

Images of the James River in Virginia, including one at flood stage, and of potholes, all of which can be used to have the students make observations, estimates, and interpretations.

Describe and Interpret Images: Folded Strata part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

In class, have students make a simple sketch of an outcrop shown in a slide (or computer projection) then discuss possible interpretations.

Constructing Phylogenetic Trees: The Whippo Story part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

An interactive lecture in which students use data on feeding habits and habitat, skeletons, and DNA sequences to draw phylogenetic trees.

Effect of Coefficient of x^2 on Parabola Vertex (a < 0) part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

This classroom activity presents College Algebra students with a ConcepTest, a Question of the Day, and a Write-pair-share activity concerning the effect of the coefficient of x^2 on the vertex of a parabola where a<0, b>0 and b and c are fixed values in f(x)=ax^2+bx+c.

Effect of Initial Value on Graph of Exponential Function (C < 0) part of Interactive Lectures:Examples

This classroom activity presents College Algebra students with a ConcepTest and a Question of the Day activity concerning the effect of the initial value, C, on the y-intercept and position of an exponential function where C<0 and k is an arbitrarily fixed value in f(x)=Ce^(kx
