Being P-Waves and S-Waves part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Role Playing:Examples

Teach students about P-waves and S-waves by having them model them with their own bodies.

The Anatomy of a Rate Law part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Quantitative Writing:Examples

This assignment teaches geochemistry students to explain the mathematical forms of rate laws, and organize paragraphs in their writing assignments properly.

Applying Lessons Learned to the Volcanic Risk at Mt. Rainier part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Jigsaws:Examples

In this jigsaw-method activity on subduction zone volcanism, students apply lessons learned from four historic eruptions to the volcanic hazards associated with Mt. Rainier in the Pacific Northwest.

Flood Curves Lecture Tutorial part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Lecture Tutorials:Examples

This Lecture Tutorial worksheet guides students through thinking about the effects humans have on infiltration, and how that effects the duration and severity of floods. It is designed to be used in groups after a brief lecture introducing surface and ground water flow into a stream.

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.

Writing a Wikipedia Genetic Disease Article part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Data:Examples

Writing a Wikipedia article about a genetic disease is a good culminating activity for a genetics course or module, as it requires synthesizing and interpreting a wide range of genetic information. This assignment also includes a potential service component, which is normally very difficult in genetics.

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.

Phenylketonuira part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Data:Examples

In this activity, students are assigned different alleles of the gene for phenylalanine hydroxylase to research using OMIM (Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man). They are then asked to both explain and illustrate how this mutation may cause the disease phenylketonuria (PKU).

Chemical Equilibrium Misconceptions part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Examples

This STELLA modeling and writing assignment helps students confront and replace common misconceptions about chemical equilibrium.

Conics and Reflection part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Examples

This is a discovery bases lesson on the reflective properties of the conics: parabolas, ellipses, and hyperbolas.

Igneous Rocks Model part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Interactive Lecture Demonstrations:Examples

While working in groups to facilitate peer tutoring, students use samples of four igneous rocks (gabbro, basalt, granite, and rhyolite) to observe differences in texture, color and grain size and make inferences ...

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.

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).

Using Mass Balance to Understand Atmospheric CFCs part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Data:Examples

Students use an interactive online mass balance model help understand the observed levels of chlorofluorocarbon CFC-12 over the recent past.

Sun Spot Analysis part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Data:Examples

Introductory students use Excel to graph monthly mean Greenwich sunspot numbers from 1749 to 2004 and perform a spectral analysis of the data using the free software program "Spectra".

Sea Floor Spreading I part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Examples

In this introductory Excel tutorial (Activity I) students use Excel to explore the geodynamics model equation for ocean depth around a sea-floor spreading center. For students with no prior Excel experience.

Sea Floor Spreading II part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Examples

Students import ocean bathymetry data from text files, they then use Excel to graph these observations along with model prediction to assess the model's ability to simulated the observed topographic features of the North Atlantic.
