Out of Your Seat and on Your Feet! An adaptable coursebased research project in plant ecology for advanced students
Learning ObjectivesStudents will: Articulate testable hypotheses. (Lab 8, final presentation/paper, inclass exercises)
 Analyze data to determine the level of support for articulated hypotheses. (Labs 47, final presentation/paper)
 Identify multiple species of plants in the field quickly and accurately. (Labs 23, field trip)
 Measure environmental variables and sample vegetation in the field. (Labs 23, field trip)
 Analyze soil samples using a variety of lowtech lab techniques. (Open labs after field trip)
 Use multiple statistical techniques to analyze data for patterns. (Labs 48, final presentation/paper)
 Interpret statistical analyses to distinguish between strong and weak interactions in a biological system. (Labs 47, final presentation/paper)
 Develop and present a conferencestyle presentation in a public forum. (Lab 8, final presentation/paper)
 Write a publicationready research paper communicating findings and displaying data. (Lab 8, final presentation/paper)

Homologous chromosomes? Exploring human sex chromosomes, sex determination and sex reversal using bioinformatics...
Learning ObjectivesStudents successfully completing this lesson will: Practice navigating an online bioinformatics resource and identify evidence relevant to solving investigation questions
 Contrast the array of genes expected on homologous autosomal chromosomes pairs with the array of genes expected on sex chromosome pairs
 Use bioinformatics evidence to defend the definition of homologous chromosomes
 Define chromosomal sex and defend the definition using experimental data
 Investigate the genetic basis of human chromosomal sex determination
 Identify at least two genetic mutations can lead to sex reversal

Promoting Climate Change Literacy for Nonmajors: Implementation of an atmospheric carbon dioxide modeling activity as...
Learning Objectives Students will be able to manipulate and produce data and graphs.
 Students will be able to design a simple mathematical model of atmospheric CO2 that can be used to make predictions.
 Students will be able to conduct simulations, analyze, interpret, and draw conclusions about atmospheric CO2 levels from their own computer generated simulated data.
