Teaching Reaction Equilibrium Using Stella Modeling Software
Equilibrium of biochemical reactions is seldom taught in introductory biology labs. However, equilibrium is an excellent topic for the introduction of simple mathematical modeling into the lab curriculum. When properly done, modeling can allow an exploratory, hands-on approach to equilibrium, as well as teach a valuable application of mathematics. Stella modeling software facilitates the exercise by allowing students to construct sound models without dwelling on mathematical details. This exerci

Dichotomous Key for Conifers
This reference tool allows students to identify a coniferous tree species by making a series of guided decisions about shape, size, and arrangement of its needles. Ideally, students' specimens will be twigs that include the tree's reproductive cone or fruit. The key, which includes only species that are native to the U.S., is available in three formats:an interactive key on the AMNH's Web site, an interactive key that can be downloaded to your computer (available as a self-extracting stuffed fil
Erythemal Index for August 2000 through July 2001: Rotating Globe
The Erythemal Index is a measure of ultraviolet radiation (UV) at ground level on the Earth. UV exists to the left of the visible spectrum and is divided into three components (UV-A, UV-B and UV-C). UV-B (290-320 wavelengths) is the most dangerous form of UV radiation that can reach ground level. Atmospheric ozone shields life at the surface from most of the harmful components of solar radiation. Chemical processes in the atmosphere can effect the level of protection provided by the ozone in the

Wear a Chimp on Your Wrist
The OLogy activity offers an interesting twist on the study of DNA. Students use colored beads (or gumdrops) to create a bracelet that's based on a section of DNA code. The two strands of the bracelet are then twisted together into a double helix. They can choose to recreate DNA code from a list of favorite plants and animals that includes a monarch butterfly, a chimpanzee, a sunflower, and a brown trout. The activity includes illustrated step-by-step directions.
