Patterns are one of the most important ideas studied in all disciplines. We are now recognizing the connection between biology and mathematics and how patterns discovered in math, for example, are directly related to the way viruses regenerate themselves. With the addition of new, advanced technology and Internet access, students from ninth grade through twelfth […]
This grant also enhances an initial grant awarded last year by providing more calculator-based labs and probes so that all high school science students can quickly measure and analyze real-time biological data while working in small groups in their classrooms or in the field.
A lab-based initiative to enhance the high school science program, Calculator-Based Labs will provide a calculator interface and electronic probes to allow students to collect, record and graph real-time data in experiments across the science curriculum, including areas such as photosynthesis, respiration, and conductivity.
