During the Fall 2021 semester, participants will adapt and implement portions from two of the following into their classrooms. These modules cover a range of topics, so please select the activities that will fit best into your course curriculum.

Graphing bacterial growth rates: semi-log graphs v linear graphs

Adam Marschall Jaros, Adronisha Frazier, Beth Alford, Brandy Williams

Version: 1.0

In this activity, students will explore the concept of binary fission, generation time, and bacterial growth curves, with an emphasis on the log phase. Students will use semi-log graphs and linear graphs to plot bacterial cell growth.

Big Data, Graphs, and Prediction

Jennifer Lyon Adler, David Simon, Emmanuel des-Bordes, Joseph Esquibel, mary miller, Pradip Raj Aryal, Vickie Flanders

Version: 1.0

In this activity, students are introduced to graphing and modeling data in a step-wise fashion. Real data of covid-19 deaths over time are used to incrementally ask students to fit the data to several models and discuss which model fits best.

Using Linear Regression to Explore Environmental Factors Affecting Vector-borne Diseases

Andy Adams, Jessica A Adams, John J. Bray, Tami Imbierowicz, Suzanne Lenhart, Breonna Martin

Version: 1.0

In this activity students will use linear regression to analyze real data on vector-borne diseases and explore how environmental factors such as climate change or population density influence the transmission of these diseases.
