An introduction to optimizing materials for web presentation: postscripting to PDF, animated graphics, still graphics, font type and size. These materials, among others, are used to demonstrate the creation of a WebCT course site. WebCT is a server-based course management software application. Through a very specific (and thoroughly, yet simply explained) set of steps, faculty place html, text files, graphics files, etc. into what is essentially an on-line course. That 'course' allows you to place your study materials and outlines on the web, create self-testing and scoring for individual materials, give quizzes and exams, search your own glossary, keep an on-line calendar that links to files or sites inside or outside your course, keep track of grades, assign each of your students email capability, run chat rooms, publish a bulletin board, and allow you to track students' study time and materials. All creation work and student participation can be done wherever there is a browser and WWW access.

The first laboratory course biology majors take should challenge their expectation that biology is the mere memorization of knowledge. Rather, it should introduce them through experience to the scope and limitations of scientific investigation. Following a brief introduction to epistemology and the nature and goals of science, this course provides students with a developing understanding of scientific thinking, methodology, and experimental design. During the final unit of the course students devise and conduct a test of a hypothesis they have independently generated, conduct appropriate statistical analysis, and write a report of the project.

In this exercise, students examine several components of reasoning with the purpose of helping the student see how these are used in developing a personal problem solving technique. The students work through three exercises: determining an object in a sealed box, identifying a series of unknown household chemicals, and identifying the rules that determine responses in a computer simulation.
