Exploring Biomass Pyramids

This interactive module allows students to collect and analyze data from a virtual river to construct biomass and energy pyramids.

Population Dynamics

This interactive simulation allows students to explore two classic mathematical models that describe how populations change over time: the exponential and logistic growth models.

Exploring Trophic Cascades

This interactive module explores examples of how changes in one species can affect species at other trophic levels and ultimately the entire ecosystem.

Virus Explorer

This interactive module explores the diversity of viruses based on structure, genome type, host range, transmission mechanism, and vaccine availability.

Sampling and Normal Distribution

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

The Eukaryotic Cell Cycle and Cancer

This interactive module explores the phases, checkpoints, and protein regulators of the cell cycle. The module also shows how mutations in genes that encode cell cycle regulators can lead to the development of cancer.

Stopping Mosquito-Borne Disease

This tutorial introduces students to vector-borne disease with a focus on dengue fever, which is transmitted by mosquitoes. Students also learn about strategies designed to stop the spread of disease by interfering with the mosquito life cycle.

Tissue Regeneration in Animals

This tutorial describes how animals differ in their abilities to heal wounds and regenerate lost body parts or damaged tissues.
