About the Lesson

In this Science Nspired module, students will explore the delicate balance of nature and examine the biodiversity of a freshwater environment. Using a simulation, students are able to adjust the temperature and pH of the water and observe the number of fish species that appear or disappear in the lake. Students can then expand on what they learned about pH in the simulation by using a pH Sensor to measure the effect of an acid and a base in water. This Lesson Guide allows you to preview the variety of activities provided for this module, as well as gives a suggested flow (lesson plan) of the lesson. The Lesson Guide is a TI-Nspire PublishViewTM document (.tnsp).
