Using HHMI Tutorials to Prepare Students for Investigating Authentic Datasets in Biology
17 Jan 2018 | Teaching Materials | Contributor(s):
HHMI tutorial modules were modified and condensed to bring all students up to the same skill level, and students took a pre-assessment to demonstrate adequate preparation for class.
Cell Division and Cancer Risk Data Point
Cancer is typically attributed to hereditary and environmental factors, but these only explain a fraction of overall cancer risk. This activity explores a third factor.
Coral Bleaching Mapping Activity
This is a classroom activity in which students use authentic data to assess the threat of coral bleaching around the world. It supports the 2014 Holiday Lectures on Science video featuring Dr....
Tutorial Combination and Online Implementation
