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 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).

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.

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.

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.

Monohybrid Fruit Fly Crosses: A Simulation part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Data:Examples

This assignment uses a computer simulation of fruit fly genetics to have students design and interpret monohybrid crosses of a trait with simple dominant and recessive alleles. Detailed instructions with animated examples, background material, a sample report and a rubric are included.

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

Detailed, annotated example of Socratic questioning for topics of climate change, global warming, and greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

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

Cluster of questions on acid rain deposition.

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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).

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 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.

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.

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.
