Biology is designed for multi-semester biology courses for science majors. It is grounded on an evolutionary basis and includes exciting features that highlight careers in the biological sciences and everyday applications of the concepts at hand. To meet the needs of today’s instructors and students, some content has been strategically condensed while maintaining the overall scope and coverage of traditional texts for this course. Instructors can customize the book, adapting it to the approach that works best in their classroom. Biology also includes an innovative art program that incorporates critical thinking and clicker questions to help students understand—and apply—key concepts.

The student will learn the mechanics of editing and compiling a simple program written in C++ beginning with a discussion of the essential elements of C++ programming: variables, loops, expressions, functions, and string class. Next, the student will cover the basics of object-oriented programming: classes, inheritance, templates, exceptions, and file manipulation. The student will then review function and class templates and the classes that perform output and input of characters to/from files. This course will also cover the topics of namespaces, exception handling, and preprocessor directives. In the last part of the course, the student will learn some slightly more sophisticated programming techniques that deal with data structures such as linked lists and binary trees. Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to: Compile and execute code written in C++ language; Work with the elementary data types and conditional and iteration structures; Define and use functions, pointers, arrays, struct, unions, and enumerations; Write C++ using principles of object-oriented programming; Write templates and manipulate the files; Code and use namespaces, exceptions, and preprocessor instructions; Write a code that represents linked lists and binary trees; Translate simple word problems into C++ language.

This students need to be to present their persuasive essay orally to the class. Part 1:  Driving question: Should the third grade class adopt a class pet? Part 2: GrabberWhat is your grabber?While the students are writing, a dog walks into the classroom. I’ll say. “How did you get in here?” I’ll attempt to get the dog and take him out of the classroom. Then I’ll show the students a video about the good and bad reasons about having a pet in the classroom. I won’t show the whole video, just the first 3 or 4 minutes. Then the students will be presented with the project. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vbwiYOA-RcY Culminating activities: The students will need to conduct research on the computer about the animal they want to choose or an animal that would not be a good choice for the classroom. They will need to print out pictures of the animal and write down facts about it for the trifold. They will write their essay with some information from the internet. They will write information and glue pictures in the trifold. Lastly, they will present it to the class by reading the essay and sharing the trifold.

In this course, the student will learn the theoretical and practical aspects of algorithms and Data Structures. The student will also learn to implement Data Structures and algorithms in C/C++, analyze those algorithms, and consider both their worst-case complexity and practical efficiency. Upon successful completion of this course, students will be able to: Identify elementary Data Structures using C/C++ programming languages; Analyze the importance and use of Abstract Data Types (ADTs); Design and implement elementary Data Structures such as arrays, trees, Stacks, Queues, and Hash Tables; Explain best, average, and worst-cases of an algorithm using Big-O notation; Describe the differences between the use of sequential and binary search algorithms.

This document is a history of the challenges of starting an FTC Robotics Program as a class (as opposed to a club). The intended audience includes anyone who is thinking of starting an FTC Robotics program whether class or club. The reason “FTC” is specifically mentioned is that involvement with a major national program has many positive (and negative) aspects. The goal of this document is to provide the reader a compendium of all the problems (and posited solutions) we encountered.

The Oregon Science Project Modules are designed for K-12 and nonformal educators who want to learn more about NGSS, with an emphasis, in Modules #4 & 5, on the central role student discourse and talk play in the K-12 NGSS classroom. It is designed to provide 3-4 hours of work and asks learners to create something new to contribute to the work.Last session we discussed: * How we could ask students to make their thinking visible?* How we could use models for content and students thoughts?* How we can create ways that every student has the opportunity to use science talk?This session is focused on why science talk is important for all students and how this looks in our classrooms. How do we create a classroom environment where all feel safe to speak their ideas? How do we teach students the skills to build on each others' ideas as a scientific community? Who talks and why?
