Ecology is the study of interactions between organisms, and between organisms and their environments. This branch of science involves observing and measuring interactions, looking for patterns, and seeking to explain these patterns.
In this Science Nspired module, students will explore temperature regulation through simulations, a data-collection lab, formative assessments and summative assessments. This Lesson Guide is a TI-Nspire PublishviewTM document.
This Bell Ringer introduces the topic of temperature regulation to students by showing how the internal body temperature remains more steady than the skin temperature when the human body is subjected to extreme conditions. The Bell Ringer is a TI-Nspire PublishViewTM document.
In this lesson, students will simulate the effect of environmental temperature on the metabolisms of both endothermic and ectothermic animals.
In this lesson, students will measure and graph the rate at which room-temperature water and alcohol cool as they evaporate. Then, they will draw a conclusion about the rates at which polar and nonpolar liquids evaporate.
Students will use the temperature probe to measure temperature changes to measure and compare the energy content of different foods.
In this Science Nspired module, students will explore population dynamics through simulations, a data-analysis lab, formative and summative assessments.
This Lesson Guide is a TI-Nspire PublishviewTM document.
This Bell Ringer introduces the topic of Population Dynamics to students. Students will see a cheetah chase a gazelle and begin the discussion around the interactions like this that impact populations. The Bell Ringer is a PublishViewTM document.
In this lesson, students will investigate a population with cycling patterns that exist between a predator and its prey.
In this activity, students will observe model environments, adjust abiotic variables in those environments, observe the results of those adjustments, and then draw conclusions about the effects of the abiotic world on the biotic world.
In this lesson, students will use population data to study the relationship between predator and prey populations.
