Resistan
Resistan is a mechanistic simulation model of the process of selection of fungicide-resistant biotypes of a hypothetical fungal pathogen of a hypothetical crop. The fungus is a polycyclic organism with many generations per season. There is no genetic component in this simulator. Reproduction is assumed to be asexual. A small proportion of the initial inoculum is designated as the fungicide-resistant biotype at the start of the season, and the response of that population to various fungicide spr

SimBio2
From 1991 until 1993 the Biosphere system supported people, plants, and animals. Experiments offered the opportunity for tracking in great detail the interactions among land and water ecosystems and the atmosphere. SimBio2 offers several scenarios in which students can generate simulation graphs using actual data from the Biosphere 2 experiment. Studentscan explore some of the problems that affected Biosphere 2 such as higher levels of carbon dioxide than expected and the resulting decrease oxy

The Universe: Backyard Astronomer: April (2:47)
Learn about the Lyrid meteor shower in this "The Universe: Backyard Astronomer" video. Every year in April from the 19th to the 24th, the lyrids come down at an average rate of 10-20 per hour. There are a lot of terms here that students may not understand and it is essential that the class has a map of the stars as the video moves too rapidly for students to follow on their own.

The Adventures of George Amato, "DNA Detective"
This fun Web site is part of OLogy, where kids can collect virtual trading cards and create projects with them. Here, they see how DNA is used to solve crimes against animals. The activity starts with an introduction to George Amato, an AMNH scientist who sometimes helps the U.S. government solve mysteries. In a three-part online slide show, students see how Amato earned the title "DNA Detective" in 1993 when he helped the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service catch someone trying to sneak protected re

Engineering for the Three Little Pigs
The purpose of this activity is to demonstrate the importance of rocks, soils and minerals in engineering and how using the right material for the right job is important. The students build three different sand castles and test them for strength and resistance to weathering. Then, they discuss how the buildings are different and what engineers need to think about when using rocks, soils and minerals for construction.

Next steps
In this unit you will see first how to convert vectors from geometric form, in terms of a magnitude and direction, to component form, and then how conversion in the opposite sense is accomplished. The ability to convert between these different forms of a vector is useful in certain problems involving displacement and velocity, as shown in Section 2, in which you will also work with bearings.
