This workshop demonstrates on-line use of the national electronic bulletin board, complete with electronic mail started in 1987 by the National Association of Biology Teachers. Once on-line, 14 special interest areas are available, such as AP- Biology, magazine and book reviews, ABT Journal, NABT membership services, question and answer forum, software reviews, and swap/sale of used equipment. Also available for downloading onto your computer are extensive files of labs, graphics, and handouts. Discussions of this and other databases will emphasize the power of these new professional communication tools. Note: This workshop is not included in the published proceedings volume because it was not submitted by the author. Less

This protocol represents a cost-effective modification of the Ames Test that allows students to investigate the mutagenic potential of various common substances. Potential mutagens are tested using well-characterized auxotrophic strains of Salmonella typhimurium. By analyzing the results, students determine if any of their compounds may be mutagenic. Follow-up experiments are designed to determine the dose response of these potential mutagens. Using this protocol, we have achieved reproducible results with several known mutagens, including sodium azide and ultraviolet irradiation. This approach enables faculty to control costs and results to improve student understanding of mutagenesis, biochemical pathways, experimental design, and data analysis. Less

Learners observe a demonstration of the metabolism of yeast--after being placed in a sealed bag with water and sugar, the yeast consumes the sugar and produces carbon dioxide gas to inflate the bag. Learners then design their own experiments to see how altering the food source (using sugar or an artificial sweetener) alters the amount of carbon dioxide gas produced. Less

In this activity about the relationship between food and energy (page 8 of PDF), learners estimate average daily baseline energy (Calorie) needs and energy needs for different levels of activity. Learners will calculate how many Calories a typical teenager needs every day, known as Basal Metabolic Rate or BMR, as well as their own baseline Calorie needs based on gender, age, height, and weight. Learners will calculate this using the Harris-Benedict Equation. This guide includes background information, setup and management tips, extensions, and handouts. Less
