The module is divided into parts and can be done in-class, online, or as homework.  There are areas where additional resources are provided for students/courses that need instructional material not provided in the case study.  In addition, there are opportunities to expand particular sections for classes that would like to emphasize certain content areas.  Overall, students are introduced to concepts of hypothesis testing using elementary hypothesis tests, t-tests, p-value (and more) as they compare a given fish population for methylmercury levels (using real and hypothetical data) against real-world mercury standards in fish (in Canada).  Additionally, students will be encouraged to research for themselves as well as have an open philosophical discussion at the close of the module.
