This adaptation was used to help non-majors (first year, second semester) students gain familiarity with Google Sheets and learn new quantitative skills using a data set illustrating an engaging and personally relevant biological phenomenon.
In this activity, upper level college students undertake the “Fixing” Gene Expression card sort and then review how each step of the process is regulated and what modifications can be made to each molecule.
This resource provides slides and pause points to implement a scaffolded investigation of the dynamic equilibrium model of island biogeography over two class periods, with simplifications for the second part of the activity.
Students simulate Robert Paine's experiment by "removing" different organisms from their "desktop" tide pool ( strips of paper represent each species in the tide pool food web) and "hypothesizing" what the effect of the removal would be.
Students will group lizard cards based the visible traits. Afterwards, students can consider whose diagram is correct. Lastly, they storyboard how they think the lizard populations change in response to a disturbance. This helps elicit student ideas.
