Description

This modified version of "Figure of the Day" was used in an introductory-level biology course.  Students were tasked with identifying dependent and independent variables, discerning discreet vs. continuous variables, as well as describing patterns and providing tentative explanations for the data.  New figures were incorporated that followed course themes and content including genetics, community ecology, and biodiversity.
