You will learn what computers can do with data to produce information and how computers can be used to work with data and search for it, control machines, and support commercial operations.
Using the Worm, Caenorhabditis elegans, in Undergraduate Genetics and Developmental Biology Laborato
C. elegans is easy to use, transparent, reproduces quickly, and has a cloned genome. All of these factors make it an ideal system for use in introductory, genetics or developmental biology labs. This lab familiarizes students with the life cycle, development, terminology, and common mutant phenotypes of C. elegans. It also introduces the use of GFP transgenic worms to visualize specific cell types in the worm. A detailed sample experiment is included that takes students through using genetic cro

Rube Goldberg and the Meaning of Machines
Simple and compound machines are designed to make work easier. When we encounter a machine that does not fit this understanding, the so-called machine seems absurd. In this lesson, the cartoons of Rube Goldberg are introduced and engage the students in critical thinking about the way his inventions make a simple task even harder to complete. As the final lesson in the simple machines unit, the study of Rube Goldberg machines can help students evaluate the importance and usefulness of the many ma

NeuroLogic Exam: Introduction: "x" Values
So far we have a handle on the vertical localization within the neuroaxis but we have a very flat, one-dimensional structure. We need to have a way to come up with "x" values. Let's rotate the neuroaxis by 90 degrees so we can see it in the coronal plane. Now we can appreciate that most structures in the neuroaxis have a right, left or midline orientation on our "x" axis. The first principle of neurologic diagnosis is regional or anatomical localization. In order to become skillful the student m
