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.

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.

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.

Effect of Coefficient of x^0 on Parabola Vertex 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^0 (i.e., the constant, c) on the vertex of a parabola where a and b are arbitrarily fixed values in f(x)=ax^2+bx+c.

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.
