Revisiting "A Practical Guide to the Use of Cellular Slime Molds for Laboratory Exercises and Experi
Microbial eukaryotes in general, and cellular slime molds in particular, are well-suited for laboratory instruction in a variety of areas, including cellular biology, developmental biology, biochemistry, and population biology, and for a range of educational levels, such as introductory courses, upper-division ...
Strengthening Biology Teaching by Working with the Local School System
This object was developed to strengthen the level of collaboration between educators at all levels. It should be used to develop workshops, curricula, and projects with the intent of increasing the amount of communication between educators at different levels, and to promote a better exchange of information ...
Tracheid Length Measurement in Selected Conifer Species
This exercise illustrates the techniques for macerating wood and staining, mounting, and measuring tracheids. Mean tracheid length is different in different species of conifers; therefore, this laboratory can be expanded into a larger scale comparative measurement exercise.
Using Computer-Interfaced Physiological Measurement Systems in the Biology Laboratory
Students in General Biology perform two different laboratory exercises using computer-based physiological measurement systems to record data from student subjects. Using equipment from Intelitool, students measure resting and post-exercise ECGs, noting relative changes in each portion of the tracing. Then in a second exercise students measure lung volumes and capacities in resting and post-exercise subjects. Forced expiratory volumes (F.E.V.) for 1, 2, and 3 seconds are also measured. Notes for

Why Democracy? A philosophical defence against the most subtle despisers
Challenging Democracy - 9th Dialogue on Science of the Academia Engelberg Foundation 2010 In his presentation, Professor Günter Abel from the Technical University of Berlin asked the question of whether society can provide reasons for an understanding of democracy beyond the stranglehold of the dichotomy between metaphysical absolutism and resigned relativism. He asked to leave behind the whole picture of the political as a space of truth and knowledge. Rather, one might conceive the politica

Using Mass Balance to Understand Atmospheric CFCs
In this activity, students use an interactive online mass balance model to help understand the observed levels of chlorofluorocarbon CFC-12 over the recent past. They then explore the influence of post Montreal Protocol emission scenarios on future CFC levels and discuss the relevance of this to stratospheric ...
Virtual Maths, Shapes, Space and Measure, Tan Table
Calculate the height of a building, Tan Table
Distance/ Rate/ Time
This PowerPoint video introduces the formula D=RT and how to apply it to distance/ rate/ time problems. Examples are modeled and with emphasis placed on matching units of measurement.
How to Add Different Units of Weight
In this video Sal Khan discusses how to convert and add different measurement units. The problem in this video is this:
11 ounces + 29 ounces + 5 pounds = ? pounds
Digits and Place Value (Part 1)
This video indicates it is for pre-algebra, but it is good for all levels, beginning, for those who need extra help, or those who need to review. This video is good and contains humor along with the lesson. Reviews what digits are, then goes into what the different place values are. This also contains what the place values are on the other side of the decimal. Then examples are gone through, they also go through the written number (long word form). Video is good quality and good for all st
Nina Jablonski Breaks the Illusion of Skin Color
Nina Jablonski says that differing skin colors and pigmentations are simply our bodies' adaptation to varied climates and levels of UV exposure. Charles Darwin disagreed with this theory, but she explains, that's because he did not have access to NASA. Nina Jablonski is author of Skin: A Natural History, a close look at human skin’s many remarkable traits: its colors, its sweatiness, and the fact that we decorate it. Run time 14:46.
How To Use a Wiki
A simple explanation of how wikis work, using the example of a camping trip. Would be a good introduction before the class begins using a wiki for the first time. Suitable for all grade levels. 3:51 min.
Chain Reaction: Water
Artists using using visual media to capture climate change in the act. The video begins with showing water bottles made from plastic which uses oil to produce the bottles, gas to transport the bottles and the entire planet's resulting consequences of global warming. Speeded up climate changes showing dying coral, rising water levels, hurricanes, ending with a challenge to be concious of the changes and "Sound the Alarm." Set to contemporary music.
How to Find Free Knitting Patterns
This video explains how to find free knitting patterns for many skill levels with information. Some places to find free knitting patterns are at yarn supply stores, as many yarn distributors supply free patterns to complement their products and the Internet also offers free patterns.
Making Paper Mache with Curious George
The children use newspaper strips, glue, water, and flour to make paper mache bowls. The two teams used two different recipes to make their bowls and then compared the results. The students measured using 1 cup, 1/3 cup, and 1/4 cup so the art activity could also be used for a measurement unit.
Green Careers - Architect
An architect discusses the design of green buildings. It discusses the importance of design in reducing the impact of buildings on the environment at the local and global levels. Color video with sound. 2:36 min.
The Angle Game Video uses an electronic black board with different-colored pens. Using what we know about angles students need to figure out the measurement of the other angles in the figure that is drawn. Video should be paused then restarted for solution. Narrator mentions that this is good practice for SAT’s. This could also be a challenge for high level middle school students. Good quality video. Good for middle elementary and middle school students.
