Campus Nitrogen Budget part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Campus-Based Learning:Examples

Link the college or university operations with local ecology. In this study, students use a tool from urban ecology, the nitrogen budget, to research the inputs, outputs and subsytem transfers of nitrogen on the college or university campus.

Shaking Ground - Linking Earthquake Magnitude and Intensity part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples

An in-class activity for connecting earthquake magnitude, shaking, and intensity.

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.

Searching Genbank part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Data:Examples

An active problem-based assignment that uses the Genbank database to teach the basics of molecular biology and molecular evolution

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.

JiTT-Scientific Method part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Just in Time Teaching:Examples

A "Just in Time Teaching" question about he scientific method with follow-up class room activities and an exam question.

Light Reactions of Photosynthesis part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Visualizations:Visualization Examples

Light reactions of photosynthesis including location and steps for non-cyclic and cyclic photophosphorylation.

Dark Reactions of Photosynthesis part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Visualizations:Visualization Examples

The dark reactions of photosynthesis (Calvin Cycle) are presented in this learning experience to show where these processes take place in the plant as well as the specific reactions involved.

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

Plant growth regulators, including auxin, gibberellin, cytokinin, abscisic acid, and ethylene, are investigated in this learning activity to demonstrate how these chemicals (hormones) affect plant growth and development.

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.

Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum/Geology of National Parks module. Students calculate the amount of rock removed and the value of copper produced at the great Keweenaw District up to 1925.

Mathematics and Statistics Models part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Mathematical and Statistical Models

Developed by Bob MacKay, Clark College. What are Mathematical and Statistical Models These types of models are obviously related, but there are also real differences between them. Mathematical Models: grow out of ...

Genetic Drift part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Examples

In this biology simulation, students use a mathematical simulation of genetic drift to answer questions about the factors that influence this evolutionary process. Students run a series of simulations varying allele frequency and population size and then analyze their data and propose a model to explain their results.

Human Demographics part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Examples

In this biology simulation students explore factors that change human population growth including age at which women begin to bear children, fertility rate and death rate.

Fog Chamber part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Interactive Lecture Demonstrations:Examples

Show how clouds and fog are created with a very simple physical model. Materials needed are: A large 1 gallon jar, latex glove, a little water, and matches.

Copper Extraction Demonstration Tutorial part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Interactive Lecture Demonstrations:Examples

Summary This demonstration uses sulfuric acid and crushed copper ore (malachite) to produce a solution of copper sulfate and carbonic acid in a beaker. When a freshly sanded nail is dropped into the copper sulfate ...

Earthquake Demonstration part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Interactive Lecture Demonstrations:Examples

This demonstration uses an "earthquake machine" constructed from bricks, sand paper, and a winch, to simulate the buildup of elastic strain energy prior to a seismic event and the release of that energy during an earthquake.
