This multi-part activity allows students to discover the relationships between CO2 and temperature and how these variables have changed over time using real-world data.
This multi-part module aims to help you learn about water quality implications by understanding the variability of concentrations of nitrate in stream water through the evaluation of real-time data and identifying the reasons for this variability.
In this lesson, students will have the opportunity to work through a chi-squared test of independence between two categorical variables.
The students will learn to generate, test, and graphically represent basic hypotheses on data distributions using large datasets.
The students will learn to estimate population sizes and consider assumptions of mathematical models and their applicability to the ecology of an organism/population
National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science- In the adaptation exercise, students explore connections between saltmarsh sparrow declines and declining populations of local species that live on or near their campus.

A series of three modules using data from natural history museum collections to examine responses to climate change in multiple chipmunk species. Elevation and morphological data, beginner skills in R, ecological niche modeling in Maxent, and more.
Abstract for a presentation that was part of a minisymposium at SMB 2015.
This dataset of fungal communities associated with the leaves an endemic Hawaiian tree provides students opportunities to explore relationships between environmental variables and microbial community composition.
This classroom lesson presents students with the task of determining how much water their school would to store in case of an emergency disaster.
This video explores the way evolution happens via natural selection in the context of the microbial world. Viruses and bacteria are discussed. We will see how evolution can be simulated in a laboratory setting.
Over the past four decades, biologists Rosemary and Peter Grant have documented the evolution of the famous Galápagos finches
The MathBench module, "The Case of the Missing Mountaintop" introduces students to the concept of biodiversity and measures used to quantify biodiversity and stream health. Students investigate the impacts of mountaintop removal mining processes on stream
