Our goal is to present the key observations and unifying concepts upon which modern biology is based; it is not a survey of all biology! Once understood, these foundational observations and concepts should enable you to approach any biological process, from disease to kindness, from a scientific perspective. To understand biological systems we need to consider them from two complementary perspectives; how they came to be (the historic, that is, evolutionary) and how their structures, traits, and behaviors are produced (the mechanistic, that is, the physicochemical)

This simulation provides a realistic virtual mass-and-spring laboratory. Users can explore spring motion by manipulating stiffness of the spring and mass of the hanging weight. Concepts of Hooke's Law and elastic potential energy are further clarified through charts showing kinetic, potential, and thermal energy for each spring. This item is part of a larger collection of simulations developed by the Physics Education Technology project (PhET). The simulations are animated, interactive, and game-like environments in which students learn through exploration. All of the sims are freely available from the PhET website for incorporation into classes.

In this lesson, students will first participate in a chalk talk to elicit initial ideas about climate and Antarctica and the types of data scientists collect. Next, they will explore images of Antarctica and make initial noticings and wonderings about what they’re seeing. Students will be introduced to important vocabulary through matching terms to components or features of a satellite image. Finally, students will synthesize their initial ideas about how satellite imagery can help us understand climate change in Antarctica. This is the first lesson of a five-part curriculum about Antarctic physical environments and ecosystems.
