In this animated object, learners read about the uses of nanotechnology. The sciences, engineering, electronics, and other disciplines converge in nanotechnology. Examples are given for applications in manufacturing, biomedicine, and environmental science. Concerns about possible environmental effects are discussed.
Body Sections and Divisions of the Abdominal Pelvic Cavity
In this animated activity, learners examine how organs are visualized in three dimensions. The terms “longitudinal,” “cross,” “transverse,” “horizontal,” and “sagittal” are defined. Students test their knowledge of the location of abdominal pelvic cavity organs in two drag-and-drop exercises.
Learners reflect on their own attitudes toward change and list them in the order they might experience them. In a separate exercise, they prioritize the actions a group might take when faced with change in the workplace.
Learners examine the function of each part of a microscope and follow step-by-step instructions on how to focus on a specimen. They also review the proper use and care of a microscope and test their knowledge in two drag-and-drop exercises.
In this learning activity you'll review how every protein molecule of an organism is synthesized by that organism in a prescribed process. This activity helps students understand the fundamental life process of making protein.
In this interactive object, learners examine the neuron pathway into and out of the spinal cord. They complete the activity by testing their knowledge of vocabulary and the location of spinal cord structures.
In this animated and interactive object, learners examine the lifecycle of fungi including asexual and sexual reproduction. Learners test their knowledge by identifying a diagram and by completing a crossword puzzle.
Learners examine strategies for evaluating new ideas and accepting change. They consider a list of various reactions to change and a list of actions that enhance teamwork, and check those statements that apply to themselves.
In this animated object, students observe how ATP energy is used to move substances across the cell membrane from an area of lower concentration to an area of higher concentration and when something too large needs to get in or out of a cell.
Learners read how nanotechnology is creating new jobs in emerging industries while making others obsolete. This colorful and animated activity also looks at the types of products being created through the use of technology and how educational institutions have responded.
