Alternative discussion formats: museum exhibit design
Designing museum exhibits encourages students to think creatively and to use a wide range of thinking skills.
TÜ Loodusteadusliku hariduse lektoraadi vastavatel kursustel (Loodusteaduste visualiseerimine) osalenud õpetajate koostatud interaktiivsed mudelid bioloogiliste protsesside tundmaõppimiseks. Kuigi mudeleid ei saa lugeda lõplikult viimistletuks, on nad õppeprotsessi visualiseerimiseks asjakohased: kasvõi ideede saamiseks. Kasutajal on soovitav fail enne oma arvutisse salvestada ning vajadusel täiendada.
Gümnasist biotehnoloogia pealispinnal
Artiklis käsitletakse geenitehnoloogiaga seonduvat gümnaasiumi õppekavast põhjalikumalt, ent õpilastele lisamaterjaliks sobivalt. Selgitatakse geenidega manipuleerimise meetodeid, DNA sekveneerimist, DNA-testi molekulaarbioloogilisi aluseid, DNA paljundamist (PCR).
Roberge 6.302 Lecture 12
Description not set
This exercise introduces students to analysis of evolutionary relationships both by analysis of molecular similarity and by cladistic techniques. The molecular analysis uses both paper-and-pencil and bioinformatics comparison of the amino acid sequence of the hemoglobin beta chain of eight vertebrates. The cladistic exercises introduce students to cladistic principles, and then allow students to solve hypothetical problems both with and without homoplasy. Students then test their cladistic abili
California juniper tree
The juniper tree is a gymnosperm from the phylum of conifers. The cone is the reproductive structure of conifers. The berry-like structures are actually cones where reproduction occurs.
One reason why ticks are considered to be arachnids is because they do not have antennae like insects do. Ticks suck blood from animals and are sometimes difficult to remove from the host's skin.
Gravitropism is the turning or growing in a different direction of a plant in response to gravity. This plant's shoots grow upward and exhibit negative gravitropism because they are growing away from gravity's pull.
Fly on a leaf
Flies are insects that eat dead plant and animal material. Their ingestion and digestion of detritus leads to respiration and excretion of important nutrients back into the soil and water.
Skunk (Mephitis mephitis)
Skunks are omnivores and eat chipmunks, mice, green plants, and insects. Owls and coyotes prefer to eat these smelly animals.

MODIS Snow Cover over Europe
The Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) provides data in 36 spectral bands, some of which are used in an algorithm to map global snow cover. The animation shows the dynamic behavior of the advance and retreat of continental snow cover over Europe for the winter of 2001-02 from MODIS-derived 8-day composite snow maps with a spatial resolution of about 5 km.

AIRS Volumetric Cloud Data (Fly In)
This visualization shows Aqua-AIRS simulated volumetric cloud data for September 13, 1999. The data was created using the Finite Volume Community Climate Model (FVCCM). Temperature and cloud data sets were match rendered for cross dissolves in post production. This visualization was created as a part of the Aqua prelaunch package.

Progression of Hurricane Charley, 2004 (WMS)
Hurricane Charley was the first of four hurricanes to hit the United States in 2004.
Psychiatric Epidemiology reviews descriptive and analytic epidemiology for major mental disorders of childhood, adulthood, and late adult life. The course will also examine issues of classification and the nosology of psychiatric disorders as well as operational case definitions and the measurement techniques to enhance field surveys and risk factor research.
The History of Public Health
In the History of Public Health we will examine the historical experience of health and illness from a population perspective. This material seeks to reveal how the organization of societies facilitates or mitigates the production and transmission of disease. It also asks how do populations and groups of individuals go about securing their health? One key theme is the medical management of space in one form or another - from the public space of the environment through institutional spaces such a
