Simulating Passive Properties of Neurons Using Matlab
Michael Wright, California State University-Sacramento
This lab activity simulates a fundamental concept in cellular neuroscience; namely that all neurons can be modeled as circuits (i.e., the equivalent circuit) composed of resistors and capacitors in parallel. The ...
Investigating Real and Ideal gases
Kristi Closser, California State University-Fresno
This activity looks at the difference between real and ideal gas laws, emphasizing the connection of the physical properties to equations and graphs. Students first analyze the real gas equation, which should be ...
Introduction to strings and DNA/protein sequence alignments
Benjamin Bratton, Vanderbilt University
This is problem set that helps solidify concepts of computational processing (accessing data, parsing data, visualizing data, using preconstructed tools) and sequence matching, specifically in the context of ...
Eugene Mahmoud, Mt. San Antonio College
This project is a hands-on, open-ended, collaborative assessment of students' abilities to collect numerical data, and develop mathematical models of naturally occurring phenomena. Students design physical ...

Synthesizing Marine Data Sets using MATLAB
Diane Fribance, Coastal Carolina University
Students use MATLAB to analyze an oceanographic data set collected in an estuary on a class boat trip, and put it into context using time-series data downloaded from online sources. Some basic oceanographic ...

Traffic Data Interpolation
Cynthia Flores, California State University-Channel Islands
The goal of this assignment is for students to demonstrate understanding of numerical interpolation through an intensive writing prompt. Two methods are implemented in MATLAB, Lagrange interpolation, and ...
Exploring Fish Diversity in Australia's Marine Ecoregions
Andrew Fischer, university of tasmania
This activity accomplishes two tasks. First it teaches students about the concepts of species richness and biodiversity using a global data set of marine fish diversity. Second, it teaches them about application ...
