By manipulating a simple kinematic model representing the leg and foot, students can get hands on information about the interaction of bones and muscles in humans. Having worked with the model, they then are able to predict and analyze the properties of bone/muscle systems in other vertebrates and understand how these systems have become modified during the course of evolution for a particular life style. By the end of the exercise, students have learned both traditional information (cellular structure, names of bones, taxonomy of vertebrates) and how to project the knowledge they gained from working with a model to the biological world.

Equilibrium of biochemical reactions is seldom taught in introductory biology labs. However, equilibrium is an excellent topic for the introduction of simple mathematical modeling into the lab curriculum. When properly done, modeling can allow an exploratory, hands-on approach to equilibrium, as well as teach a valuable application of mathematics. Stella modeling software facilitates the exercise by allowing students to construct sound models without dwelling on mathematical details. This exercise illustrates a modeling approach to reaction equilibrium and some aspects of thermodynamics. We use this exercise in introductory biology laboratories at Clemson University. (less)
