Schools

We support teachers working to enthuse the biologists of tomorrow by providing a number of leading resources. TalkBiology is an online forum available for teachers, technicians and other educators to interact online, share ideas, resources, questions and thoughts about science education and classroom resources. Access to the forum requires registration but is available free of charge to educational professionals. Practical Biology. This website is for teachers of biology in schools and colleges.

Practical Biology

It is a collection of experiments that demonstrate a wide range of biological concepts and processes. Experiments are placed within real-life contexts, and have links to carefully selected further reading. Each experiment also includes information and guidance for technicians. Project Noah. STAR: Genetics - Home. STAR: Biochem - Home. StarBiochem is a 3-D protein viewer that allows students to learn key concepts about the biology of proteins in an interactive manner.

STAR: Biochem - Home

Unlike traditional 3-D protein viewers which may require installation and significant technical expertise, StarBiochem is an intuitive 3-D protein viewer designed with students in mind. StarBiochem’s user interface was designed to visually represent protein structural information based on the four different levels of protein structure, which mirrors how students get introduced to this topic in class and in textbooks.

Using StarBiochem StarBiochem is accessible via the web. Press the START button to get started. Exercises Sample exercises for StarBiochem, covering a range of concepts and difficulty, can be found in Sample Exercise.

Some of my Regents lectures are supported by Powerpoint presentations.

If you are not familiar, Regents is a 10th grade very simplified introduction to Biology, that is limited by a state-wide exam. These PPTs are not appropriate for AP Biology courses! I have just started to upload these, so please check back if you need. Check out what we're doing online to expand beyond the classroom to the virtual world -- to catch students wherever they hang out and entice them to think!

These daily worksheets are aligned with the Raven (7th ed.) textbook. Overview of The Biology Project. Welcome to The Biology Project, an interactive online resource for learning biology developed at The University of Arizona.

Overview of The Biology Project

The Biology Project is fun, richly illustrated, and tested on 1000s of students. It has been designed for biology students at the college and high school level, but is useful for medical students, physicians, science writers, and all types of interested people. Teachers can assign problems sets for reviews before exams, or may want to assign an activity before students cover that topic in their laboratory. Computers are an excellent means of encouraging cooperative learning (especially in the one-computer classroom!) , so teachers might even have their students work in small groups. The Biology Corner. Biological Animations. Biodiversity Snapshots. Animals, such as mammals, birds and insects live all around us.

Biodiversity Snapshots

But have you ever really looked at what's in your local area? And can you identify what you see? Biodiversity Snapshots will help you to learn more about the animals around us every day by combining mobile technology and science. We provide you with a field guide, identification tool and way to record your observations all on a mobile device — your phone, netbook, or tablet. You make the observations and participate as a citizen scientist. Home — The Plant List.
