Constructing Phylogenetic Trees: The Whippo Story part of Pedagogy in Action:Library: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 Pedagogy in Action:Library: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 Pedagogy in Action:Library: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.

Describe and Interpret Images: Folded Strata part of Pedagogy in Action:Library: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.

Rivers: Short In-class Activity part of Pedagogy in Action:Library: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.

Effect of Coefficient of x^0 on Parabola Vertex part of Pedagogy in Action:Library: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 on Parabola Vertex (b < 0) part of Pedagogy in Action:Library: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 on the vertex of a parabola where a>0, b<0 and a and c are fixed values in f(x)=ax^2+bx+c.

Effect of Coefficient of x^2 on Parabola Vertex (a>0) part of Pedagogy in Action:Library: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 Coefficient of x^2 on Parabola Shape part of Pedagogy in Action:Library: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 shape of a parabola where b and c are arbitrarily fixed values in f(x)=ax^2+bx+c.

Protein Evolution part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Data:Examples

In this activity students explore the evolution of proteins by comparing 2D and 3D alignments of orthologs and paralogs.

Long Term Ecological Resources part of Pedagogy in Action:Library: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.

Problem-Based Learning: UV Menace part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Cooperative Learning:Examples

Students work as a team to determine the causes, effects, and solutions to ozone depletion. They work out what they need to know, and split the team up to research different parts of the issue.

Effect of Proportionality Constant on Exponential Graph (k>0) part of Pedagogy in Action:Library: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).

Magma Viscosity Demos part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Interactive Lectures:Examples

This is an interactive lecture where students answer questions about demonstrations shown in several movie files. They learn to connect what they have learned about molecules, phases of matter, silicate crystal structures, and igneous rock classification with magma viscosity, and to connect magma viscosity with volcano explosiveness and morphology.

Acid Rain Socratic Questions part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Socratic Questioning:Examples

Cluster of questions on acid rain deposition.

Climate: Global Warming part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Socratic Questioning:Examples
