Medicine in the Body part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Teaching with Spreadsheets:Examples

In this activity, we will explore how the dosage and frequency of a medicine taken affect the amount of medicine present in the blood.

Statistical Analysis of Lincoln part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection

Students will statistically analyze data gathered in reference to the Abraham Lincoln penny.

Trends in Alkane Boiling Points part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection

This activity is an investigation into the relationship between alkane length and boiling points. Students develop a mathematical model of this relationship and use it to make predictions and error analysis.

Investigating Projectile Motion: Predicting Point of Impact part of MnSTEP Teaching Activity Collection:MnSTEP Activity Mini-collection

Students will understand that projectile motion is a result of two independent motions, horizontal and vertical by reading, problem-solving, and experimentation.

Genetic Drift part of 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 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.

Waves Through Earth: Interactive Online Mac and PC part of Examples

Students vary the seismic P and S wave velocity through each of four concentric regions of Earth and match "data" for travel times vs. angular distance around Earth's surface from the source to detector.

Vostok Ice Core: Excel (Mac or PC) part of Examples

Students use Excel to graph and analyze Vostok ice core data (160,000 years of Ice core data from Vostok Station). Data includes ice age, ice depth, carbon dioxide, methane, dust, and deuterium isotope relative abundance.
