4434Hunting The Hidden Dimension: The Most Famous Fractal
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=502483
Mysteriously beautiful fractals are shaking up the world of mathematics and deepening our understanding of nature. Design a fractal.Introductory Modeling in Biology
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=379362
Introductory course in quantitative biology for lower division undergraduates. A range of biological topics are covered including plant pathology, ion channels, HIV, primate sexuality, and protein phylogenetics. Students are assumed to have completed one year of undergraduate calculus, and an introductory statistics class is useful. Math skills used include graphing, probability, correlation, arrays, logarithms, and ordinary differential equations. The discrete teaching modules are designed to be self-contained lab exercises. The modules are written as Mathcad documents that the students complete for credit. Thus, students must have access to Mathcad (version 13 or higher). PDF versions of the modules are also provided for demonstration purposes.James Peirce WTF Project

A study measuring the connection between biological scenarios and mathematical models.Quantitative Biology Courses in Mathcad
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=379354
These instructional exercises (modules) are part of a series of quantitative biology courses (Q courses) developed and taught at UC Davis. The main files are written as MathCad 13 documents and require a copy of MathCad 13, or higher, to run. The downloadable MathCad documents are unanswered versions suitable for distribution to students.Quantitative topics in Animal Behavior
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=379434
Undergraduate computer lab designed to teach quantitative thinking in the context of Animal Behavior. Ideally, this lab would be taught as a supplement to a concurrent lecture course. Students are assumed to have completed one year of undergraduate calculus, and an introductory statistics class is useful.Topics include bird song analysis (spectrograms), stochastic movement (diffusion and biased random walks), optimization of foraging strategies, evolutionary stable strategies (ess), spatial models of foraging, neural circuits, and frequency-dependent fitness. Math skills used include graphing, probability, arrays, logarithms, discrete-time models, and phase plane analysis.The modules are designed to be self-contained lab exercises. They are Mathcad documents that the students complete for credit. Thus, students must have access to Mathcad (version 13 or higher). PDF versions of the modules are also provided for demonstration purposes.Quantitative topics in Biochemistry
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=379488
Undergraduate lab series designed to familiarize students with using computer models to answer biochemical questions. Ideally, this lab would be taught as a supplement to a concurrent lecture course. Students are assumed to have completed one year of undergraduate calculus.Topics include acid-base chemistry, Gibbs free energy, Michaelis-Menten kinetics, enzyme inhibition, hemoglobin, and the Bohr effect. Math skills used include graphing (2-D and 3-D), algebra, logarithms, and numerical solutions to systems of equations.The modules are designed to be self-contained lab exercises. They are Mathcad documents that the students complete for credit. Thus, students must have access to Mathcad (version 13 or higher). PDF versions of the modules are also provided for demonstration purposes.Quantitative Topics in Neurobiology
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=379494
Undergraduate computer lab designed to teach quantitative thinking in the context of neurobiology. Ideally, this lab would be taught as a supplement to a concurrent lecture course. Students are assumed to have completed one year of undergraduate calculus.Topics include Nernst equation, GHK equation, passive electrical spread, voltage clamp, action potentials, synaptic currents, reciprocal inhibition, lateral inhibition, and the swimming circuit of Tritonia. Math skills used include graphing, logarithms, differential equations, and discrete-time models.The modules are designed to be self-contained lab exercises. They are Mathcad documents that the students complete for credit. Thus, students must have access to Mathcad (version 13 or higher). PDF versions of the modules are also provided for demonstration purposes.על מתמטיקה ואקולוגיה
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=512581
דף מידע המסביר על תחום האקולוגיה התיאורטית: תחום בין מתמטיקה לביולוגיה בו מנסים להבין ולתאר יחסים הקיימים בטבע. מביא כדוגמא את מודל החינניות של ג'יימס לבלוק. מופיע במדור מאגר מדע של אתר מכון דוידסון.
