World Population Activity II: Excel part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Examples

(Activity 2 of 2)In this intermediate Excel tutorial students import UNEP World population data/projections, graph this data, and then compare it to the mathematical model of logistic growth.

Igneous Rocks Model part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Interactive Lecture Demonstrations:Examples

While working in groups to facilitate peer tutoring, students use samples of four igneous rocks (gabbro, basalt, granite, and rhyolite) to observe differences in texture, color and grain size and make inferences ...

Campus Nitrogen Budget part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Campus Living Laboratory: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.

Sea Floor Spreading I part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Examples

In this introductory Excel tutorial (Activity I) students use Excel to explore the geodynamics model equation for ocean depth around a sea-floor spreading center. For students with no prior Excel experience.

Sea Floor Spreading II part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Examples

Students import ocean bathymetry data from text files, they then use Excel to graph these observations along with model prediction to assess the model's ability to simulated the observed topographic features of the North Atlantic.

Trace Gases: Stella II Mac and PC part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Mathematical and Statistical Models:Examples

This Stella model allows students to learn about chemical mass balance in the atmosphere and apply this to atmospheric chlorofluorocarbon and carbon dioxide concentrations.

Crystallization from Melt Demonstration part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Interactive Lecture Demonstrations:Examples

This demonstration uses melted phenyl salicylate to show how crystals nucleate and grow as the temperature of the liquid melt decreases.

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.

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 ...

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.

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.

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.

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.

GPS Treasure Hunt part of Pedagogy in Action:Library:Games:Examples

Students are divided into teams, each of which is given a list of instructions and a GPS unit, and sent to find certain locations. At each stop, they identify a particular building stone or a plant.

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.

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.

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.

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.
