Crocodile Skeleton - Hind Limb (Ball and Socket Join)
The crocodile's hind limbs are strong and sturdy and are used to pull itself across the ground when its out of the water. The ball and socket joint allows the limb to move in different directions.
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

Modern proteomes contain putative imprints of ancient shifts in trace metal geochemistry
Because of the rise in atmospheric oxygen 2.3 billion years ago (Gya) and the subsequent changes in oceanic redox state over the last 2.3–1 Gya, trace metal bioavailability in marine environments has changed dramatically. Although theorized to have influenced the biological usage of metals leaving discernable genomic signals, a thorough and quantitative test of this hypothesis has been lacking. Using structural bioinformatics and whole-genome sequences, the Fe-, Zn-, Mn-, and Co-binding metall

Construct And Test Roofs for Different Climates
We design and create objects to make our lives easier and more comfortable. The houses in which we live are an excellent example of this. Depending on your local climate, the features of your house will be different to satisfy your particular needs; protection from hot, cold, windy, and/or rainy weather. Students should be aware of the different types of roofs found on various houses in different environments throughout the world. This can be done with books and photos. Models of the houses will
This patient education program explains the causes and types of anthrax. It also reviews the symptoms, diagnosis, treatment, and prevention of anthrax through vaccination and awareness of bioterrorism. This resource is a MEDLINEplus Interactive Health Tutorial from the National Library of Medicine, designed and developed by the Patient Education Institute.

This three minute video notes that one-third of diabetics don’t know that they have the condition and what are the symptoms. Important considerations are family history of this disease, being overweight, extra thirst, weight loss quickly, blurry vision, and others that need to be discussed with all students. There are some sexual related problems related in this video so a review of the content is recommended.
You Again? Reintroducing and Introducing Species
This BioBulletin Web site takes an in-depth look at the work involved in reintroducing and introducing species. The site includes text, videos, photographs, and interviews with key scientists. What Is Being Moved and Why? outlines the three motives for relocating members of a species for release into the wild.
Students are introduced to the idea that energy use impacts the environment and our wallets. They discuss different types of renewable and nonrenewable energy sources, as well as the impacts of energy consumption. Through a series of activities, students understand how they use energy and how it is transformed from one type to another. They learn innovative ways engineers conserve energy and how energy can be conserved in their homes.
