Basic Science offers opportunities
for first year college and high school students to use the aquatic
environment and real lake data to explore core science concepts
and to work with state-of-the-art technologies accessible through
this web site. Basic Science is divided into two major sections
– Students and Teachers.
lessons allow you to apply and learn concepts through direct,
lessons provide opportunities to discover the same concepts,
but involve more problem-solving.
Each “Teaching” lesson
plan provides general direction for guiding students to understand
Each lesson is organized into a framework of six sequential parts
that are critical for improving scientific and technological literacy:
knowledge base, experimental design, data collection, data management
and analysis, interpretation of results, and reporting results.
As you practice this framework of scientific thinking you will
be modeling the practices of scientists.
