AVIDA exercise on the role of mutation in evolution

William Beachly
A tested exercise at the college freshmen level using AVIDA-Ed to generate and test a hypothesis about the relationship between mutation rate and the probability of evolving a useful function in which students pool and analyze data from their simulations.

Intro to BIOMAAP - Student Math Anxiety Overview

Paige Ferguson
This presentation is intended as a stand alone 45 minutes-1 hour presentation to give students general information on math anxiety and a few strategies to try on their own.

Exploring the population dynamics of wintering bald eagles through long-term data

Valerie Greene
pptx presentation & partially filled out student proposal worksheet

The Effect of Climate Change on Butterfly Phenology

Valerie Greene
In this module, students explore changes in butterfly phenology through the use of natural history collections data. The resource I have modified is a pptx presentation to introduce the background and an updated student pre-lab assignment.

Exploring the population dynamics of wintering bald eagles through long-term data using R

Kristen Kaczynski
The purpose of this modification was to take the analyses that were done in Excel and have the students perform them using R. Students were not given any R code for this activity, as R code was provided throughout the semester.

Investigating human impacts on local Hawaiian stream ecology

Pamela Scheffler
Students learn about stream ecology on the island of Hawaii using data available through USGS and University of Hawaii websites and develop an understanding for potential stream changes due to predicted climate change.

Using NOAA Sea Surface Temperatures and Survey Data to Map a Caribbean Coral Bleaching Event

Kristine Grayson & Kristine Grayson
Students access NOAA data to conduct an analysis to look at differences between locations in heat stress and ultimately the amount of coral bleaching in 2005

The nose knows: How tri-trophic interactions and natural history shape bird foraging behavior. Introduction to data visualization.

Pamela Scheffler
Students investigate the role of olfaction and infochemicals on bird foraging behavior.. In this module students learn to analyze and present graphic data in ways that simplify interpretation.

Serenity now! Keep calm and do science with real data in the classroom

Drew LaMar, Sam Donovan & Hayley Orndorf
Session on using real data in the classroom with Serenity, a platform-independent browser-based interface to data science tools for the classroom.

Counts of Dengue reported in INDIA: 1991-2006

Willem Van Panhuis, Anne Cross & Donald Burke
Project Tycho datasets contain case counts for reported disease conditions for countries around the world. The Project Tycho data curation team extracts these case counts from various reputable sources, typically from national or international health authorities, such as the US Centers for Disease Control or the World Health Organization. These original data sources include both open- and restricted-access sources. For restricted-access sources, the Project Tycho team has obtained permission for redistribution from data contributors.

BioNumbers: The Database of Useful Biological Numbers

Ron Milo, Paul Jorgensen & Michael Springer
A database of biological numbers that you can search and browse.

Examining human impacts on tusk evolution in elephants using authentic research data

Kaitlin Bonner
In this activity students explore and analyze real, authentic research data paired with HHMI’s “Selection for Tuskless Elephants” video in a hands-on investigation of human impacts on elephant evolution.

Testing Goodness of Fit with the Chi-Square

Kaci Thompson & Karen Nelson
This is a MathBench module written for students to use in a self-study mode. It uses a narrative structure, humor, and everyday examples to step the learner through the mathematical principles underlying a chi-squared test.

Analyzing interesting images motivates mathematics and statistics learning

Jeremy Wojdak
Presentation by Jeremy Wojdak made as part of the "Bringing Research Data to the Ecology Classroom: Opportunities, Barriers, and Next Steps” Session at the Ecological Society of America annual meeting, August 8th, 2017, Portland Oregon

Sequence Similarity Resource Adaptation: Exploring Ebola Virus

William Tapprich
This adaptation of the sequence similarity resource provides biology students with a basic set of bioinformatics concepts and tools. These concepts and tools are used to explore relationships between Ebola virus strains.

Investigating human impacts on stream ecology: Intro to R

Kristen Kaczynski
This resource uses the Human Impact on Stream Ecology data set, background and questions and provides students an very general introduction to using R. Students perform basic summary statistics and data visualization in R (using tidyr language).

Population Demography in Swirl

Emily Weigel
The students will learn to generate, test, and graphically represent basic hypotheses on data distributions using large datasets.
