Vostok Ice Core Data

We have a dataset from the Vostock Ice Core where several atmospheric factors are reconstructed over 400,000 years.  Note that the current exercise has several quantitative/data goals already, but it is very “closed” in that all questions have an exact right answer (and all student output looks exactly the same, or it is wrong).  My goal was to make the exercise more "open".

Ticks, Lyme disease, and climate change (unfinished)

This is a Lyme disease and climate change activity that was modified from a High school ecology activity I made. In the high school activity, students are given graphs about ticks and climate change evidence and then students analyze those graphs and make predictions about tick prevalence and Lyme disease incidence. Here, students will actually analyze data about tick ranges, tick host range, and Lyme disease incidence themselves and draw their own conclusions about how climate change may or may not be affecting Lyme disease incidence and tick ranges.

Problem posing to promote discussion of primary literature - Wojdak

This is a poorly conceived assignment meant to help students create generative questions to lead peer discussions of primary literature, and to help student participants in a discussion to identify questions that if answered would aid their understanding of the paper. The latter is subtle, but "I don't understand X" isn't a question... whereas asking someone to wrestle with what they don't understand to generate a question helps clarify the unclarity.
