Investigative Case - "Swampeast Missouri" part of Investigative Case Based Learning:Examples
Students will explore wetland hydrology and biology and decide whether or not to restore a wetland or retain dams and drainage systems.

Investigative Case - "Goodbye Honey Buckets" part of Investigative Case Based Learning:Examples
Students will investigate arctic geology and hydrology as well as tundra ecology as they consider options for sewage treatment. Public safety, environmental impact, and issues of construction and engineering will be explored.

Investigative Case - "Holy Starbucks Batman!" part of Investigative Case Based Learning:Examples
Students will investigate caffeine as a potential new pollutant in a northwest river system. Effects of caffeine on invertebrates and salmon fry will be explored through field work and lab work.

Investigative Case - Los Angeles and the Future of Mono Lake part of Investigative Case Based Learning:Examples
The Los Angeles and the Future of Mono Lake WebQuest leads students in a guided exploration of Mono Lake's extreme environment and asks them to consider the preservation of this environment in relation to the needs of humans.

Investigative Case - "Home, Home on the River" part of Investigative Case Based Learning:Examples
Students will examine the complex issues that result from human use of ecologically sensitive areas. The students will investigate these issues from the point of view of their major/career path.

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 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

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).

Effect of Proportionality Constant on Exponential Graph (k < 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 proportionality constant, k, on the y-intercept and position of an exponential graph where k<0 and C is an arbitrarily fixed value in f(x)=Ce^(kx).

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.
