Evolution, Natural Selection and Speciation part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Conceptual Models:Examples
In this out of class tutorial, students explore several examples of natural selection and speciation.
Translation simulation part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Conceptual Models:Examples
This module introduces students to the basics behind translation of a messenger RNA sequence into protein. In addition to text and movies, there are interactive shockwave animations that allow students to move ribosomes and tRNAs to perform translation.
Phases of the Moon part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Interactive Lecture Demonstrations:Examples
This exercise has students use a simple physical model of the Earth, sun, and moon to understand why the moon changes phases from the perspective of Earthly observers.
Slinky and Waves part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Interactive Lecture Demonstrations:Examples
Use a Slinky to show:P and S waves, Wave reflection, and Standing waves in interactive lecture demonstration.
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.
Contour Basics: JAVA Mac/PC part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Visualizations:Visualization Examples
A great on-line resource for introducing students to contour plots.
Deciviews from Look Rock, Great Smoky Mountains National Park: How Hazy is it? part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples
Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum/Geology of National Parks module. Students calculate the haze index and standard visual range from concentrations of particulate matter.
Frequency of Large Earthquakes -- Introducing Some Elementary Statistical Descriptors part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples
Spreadsheets Across the Curriculum module. Students examine the number of large earthquakes (magnitude 7 and above) per year for 1970-1999 and 1940-1999. QL: descriptors of a frequency distribution.
Lithospheric Density part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with SSAC:Examples
Students learn about the weighted mean by building spreadsheets that apply this concept to the average density of the oceanic lithosphere.
The Lifestyle Project part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Experience-Based Environmental Projects
This three-week project challenges students to learn about environmental alternatives by modifying their own lifestyles. Throughout the project, students reduce their impacts on the environment by changing the way in which they live from day to day.
