4434Concept Cartoons About Evolution
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=86085
These concept cartoons were developed by Dianne Anderson and Kathleen Fisher (2002) as prompts for eliciting discussion about ideas in evolution. They can also be used as assessment tools. The cartoons are best suited for college non-majors and pre-college classes. The incorrect statements in the cartoons are derived from common naive conceptions. They are useful to encourage classroom discussions about common misconceptions.Illuminations

http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=78569
Found on the WetFeet.com web site, MAAP is a 71 question inventory that reveals a user's natural motivations, interests and talents for work. From a set of three options, participants select the statement with which they agree most and least. A partial profile is provided for the following trait groups: interest in job contents, temperament for the job, aptitude for the job, people, data, and things; reasoning, mathematical capacity, and language capacity. Although this is a commercial site and the ultimate goal is to sell a full analysis, participants do get to identify five jobs for which a career/match profile is provided.MacQTeX Randomised Mathematics Quizzes

A collection of online quizzes on many topics in undergraduate mathematics, featuring randomly generated questions, multiple choice and fill-in-the-answer, with fully worked solutions.Program for International Student Assessment (PISA)
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=82888
Are students well prepared to meet the challenges of the future? Are they able to analyse, reason and communicate their ideas effectively? Do they have the capacity to continue learning throughout life? Parents, students, the public and those who run education systems continually ask these questions. PISA, a three-yearly survey (2000, 2003, 2006...) of 15-year-olds in the principal industrialised countries, provides some answers. It assesses how far students near the end of compulsory education have acquired some of the knowledge and skills that are essential for full participation in society. A variety of resources have been created by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES) to make PISA information available to teachers and schools in a ready-to-use form. There are a number of ways these resources can be used. Examples include: To inform discussions about your schools' reading, mathematics and science curriculum; To explore the links between the concepts taught and ways to measure students understanding; To design new assessment according to your needs; and To reflect on the performance of your students in comparison to the performance of students in other countries, including the United States.Rubric for Biological Investigation Lab Reports
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=85621
Three faculty worked over a period of two years to create and revise this lab report rubric. It is used repeastedly throughou a semester intro bio course to guide college students who are not science majors through the processes of science. The repeated use helps theem improve their work over time. By the end of the lab course, students are ready to identify their best lab notebook work with colored post-its - and because the rubric demands their own ideas, plagiarism is not an option. Try it - revise it - teaching non-science majors to perform scientifically is not easy, but this tool helps! COMMENTS WELCOME!Science Classroom Survey Instruments
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=80521
Instruments were developed by Horizon Research to measure the quality of an observed K-12 science or mathematics classroom lesson by examining the design, implementation, mathematics/science content, and culture of that lesson. The items it contains are based on standards of quality mathematics and science instruction as outlined in the National Science Education Standards and NCTM Standards. The second half of the protocol allows researchers to rate various influences that shaped the selection of lesson content and pedagogy, as inferred from a post-observation interview with the teacher. The observation protocol was used in data collection for the Inside the Classroom study.Notes on use: The protocol is intended to reflect the current standards for exemplary practice, but not to prescribe particular instructional strategies. The instrument is designed to be used in conjunction with the Inside the Classroom Teacher Interview Protocol.Applied Mathematics I
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=293282
The quiz is set in Ancient Egypt. A group of ancient Egyptians set about their everyday lives and encounter mathematical problems. Solve them and help them on their way to the afterlife. Seven levels of randomized applied mathematical problem are included. Randomisation and fresh generation of new material maintains a high level of replayability until the underlying skills are mastered. Tracking systems are included for parental supervision. Rewards maintain student interest. Date: 16/11/2007. Size: 40 questions / 7 activities. Qedoc Auto-rating: 704. Applied Mathematics II
http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=293283
In this applied maths quiz, some children set out to complete their toy zoo. While out shopping they encounter numerous arithmetical problems involving addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of currency units. This helps your child gain the independence required to manage their own pocket money. Currencies used in the module are dollars, pounds and euros. The module includes many puzzles, involving sums of money up to about 20 to 30 dollars, euros and pounds, including calculation with cents and pence to practice ability with decimals. Fractions are briefly touched on in one puzzle. At a technical level, this module demonstrates the use of user-defined scripts to create mathematical puzzles. The Qedoc Quiz Maker allows any mathematics teacher to write their own little programmes to generate the numbers required for advanced mathematical puzzles. Date: 16/11/2007.

http://www.merlot.org/merlot/viewMaterial.htm?id=293285
This is a short 1-level applied mathematics module with questions practising addition, subtraction and occasionally multiplication and division. In about half the questions, use is made of Roman numerals. It is intended for revision purposes. The setting is the Roman Empire. Help a variety of citizens and even Caesar himself work out the necessary sums to manage their everyday lives. Technically the module is of interest because it shows the use of custom virtual keyboards. Instead of a modern numerical keypad, a 'Roman-style' numeric keypad is used instead. The principle can be extended to other numeral systems. Date: 16/11/2007. Size: 14 questions / 1 activities. Qedoc Auto-rating: 5242.
