Exploring Important Biological Concepts Using Biology Workbench
This set of three activities uses Biology Workbench, a website that brings together sequence databases and online software for searching databases, aligning sequences, and creating inferred phylogenetic trees. The first two activities explore the diversity of preproinsulin sequences across species. Students use the Student Version of Biology Workbench and search databases by keyword in the first activity, while, in the second, students use the actual Biology Workbench and search the databases us
Exercise Physiology: The Response of Metabolic Rate to Physical Activity
In this lab, students measure their heart rate, oxygen consumption, and carbon dioxide production in various physical activities on a treadmill or cycle ergometer. After learning the techniques in the first lab period, each group of 3-4 students designs an independent investigation that is performed during the second lab period. To measure metabolic rate, students collect expired air in a Douglas bag, then measure the volume, the temperature, and the concentration of oxygen and carbon dioxide. W
Effective Methods of Training Biology Laboratory Teaching Assistants IV: The Use of Skits, A Teachin
Each year since 1999 ABLE has provided a forum for presentation, discussion, and sharing of ideas concerning the use of undergraduates and graduate students to run labs and teach in the Departments of Biological Science. There have been lively films, games, examples, and discussions of the many university training sessions and/or workshops to Train Graduate Teaching Assistants to handle students, labs, and even teaching assignments. This year we will offer four other areas of discussion for you.
Leaf cutter ants
There is much diversity between ants. Leaf cutter ants use their mandibles to cut leaf fragments and take them back to their home. They don't eat the leaves, but instead use them to grow fungus on. They then eat the fungus.

In this video segment from Cyberchase, the CyberSquad breaks down an action into a series of steps in order to program a robot to do what they need it to do.
In this lesson, students will explore the causes of water pollution and its effects on the environment through the use of models and scientific investigation. In the accompanying activities, they will investigate filtration and aeration processes as they are used for removing pollutants from water. Lastly, they will learn about the role of engineers in water treatment systems.
