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.
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.
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.
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.
Nervous System part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Visualizations:Visualization Examples
This learning strategy provides discussion and visualizations of the neuron and its function, as well as components and functions of different parts of the nervous system, including the human brain.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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".
Daisyworld: Interactive On-line PC and Mac part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Examples
