These are the selected modules for this Faculty Mentoring Network (FMN). 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.
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.
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.
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.
