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 Initial Value on Graph of Exponential Function (C>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 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 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.

Plant Pest Control part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Data:Examples

This learning experience introduces participants to scientific inquiry, hypothesis formation, experimental design, data analysis, and interpretation.

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.

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.

Stratospheric Ozone part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Data:Examples

Students explore observational data from ozone-sondes, TOMS, and UARS measurements to learn about changes in stratospheric ozone over the past several decades.

Water Quality-Total Dissolved Solids part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Data:Examples

Students use a microcomputer connected to a conductivity probe to measure the total dissolved solids in local area water samples.

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.

Mitosis and Meiosis part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Visualizations:Visualization Examples

Drawings and animations, are used to help participants understand the differences between and steps involved in mitosis and meiosis. The cell cycle as well as individual steps of mitosis and meiosis are included in this learning material.

Respiratory System part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Visualizations:Visualization Examples

The purpose, components, and functions of the respiratory system are presented in this learning through disussion and visualizations. Participants learn about the nasal cavity, pharynx, larynx, trachea, bronchi, bronchioles, and alveoli.

Plant Anatomy part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Visualizations:Visualization Examples

Tissues and cells of root, stem, and leaf anatomy in both dicots and monocots are investigated in this learning activity.

Plant Water Relations part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Visualizations:Visualization Examples

Plant water relations are presented in this learning activity to help participants understand the components of water potential, explain how water moves through plants, provide examples of plant adaptations to water stress, and have a general understanding of how water potential can be measured.

Digestive System part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Visualizations:Visualization Examples

The digestive system is investigated in this learning activity to help participants learn how food is broken down and prepared for absorption, and list the components of the digestive system as well as their functions. Organs investigated include the mouth, esophagus, stomach, small intestine, large intestine, rectum, and anus.
