Lizards in Hurricanes

This activity explores images of anole lizards subjected to strong winds, which serve as phenomena for learning about natural selection and the impacts of extreme climate events.

Lizards in the Cold

This activity guides the analysis of a published scientific figure from a study that investigated how anole lizards may adapt to extremely cold temperatures.

Understanding Global Change

This interactive module allows students and educators to build models that explain how the Earth system works. The Click & Learn can be used to show how Earth is affected by human activities and natural phenomena.

Amylase Copy Number and Diet

This activity guides the analysis of a published scientific figure from a study that investigated whether there is a correlation between a population’s diet and copies of a certain gene.

Spreadsheet Tutorial 4: t-Test

In this activity, students explore different ways of calculating t-values and performing t-tests using built-in functions in Excel or Google Sheets. Students apply what they learned by plotting beak size measurements of Galapágos finches collected before and after a drought.

Spreadsheet Tutorial 5: Histogram

In this activity, students explore different ways of constructing a histogram using Excel or Google Sheets. Students apply what they learned by plotting beak size measurements of Galapágos finches before and after a drought.

Sampling and Normal Distribution

This interactive simulation allows students to graph and analyze sample distributions taken from a normally distributed population.

Africa's Savanna Ecosystems

In this talk, ecologist Robert Pringle discusses how patterns and processes that occur in the savanna, a globally important biome, illustrate core concepts in ecology.

BCR-ABL: Protein Structure and Function

This tutorial describes the structure and function of the cancer-causing protein BCR-ABL. It also shows how drugs targeting this protein can help treat chronic myeloid leukemia (CML), a cancer of the white blood cells.
