In this interactive, use logic to solve three riddles involving a jumping wallaby competition. Then, using knowledge of inequalities and rational numbers, place the wallabies on the correct range from –5 to 5 on the number line. Numbers are randomized so that the range on the number line is different each time the riddles appear. The accompanying classroom activity includes a concept review and response sheets to support the online work.

In this interactive, use logic to solve riddles involving a wallaby jumping contest. Then, place each contestant’s jump—a fraction, mixed number, or decimal between –5 and +5—at the correct point on the number line. Backward jumps are represented by negative numbers and forward jumps by positive numbers. Numbers are randomized so that riddles can be solved and wallabies placed on the number line multiple times. The accompanying classroom activity includes a fraction/decimal concept review and a response sheet to accompany the online work.

Learn how weather is the combination of four factors—temperature, wind, precipitation, and sunlight and clouds—that occur at a given place and time in this lesson plan from WGBH. The mix of factors is changing all the time; therefore, weather conditions are changing all the time. Students can observe the four factors in various types of weather and identify evidence of weather factors in different weather conditions.

This brief video excerpt, from Evolution: "Why Sex?", biologist Robert Vrijenhoek discusses the Red Queen hypothesis through the example of the Mexican Poeciliid fish. Vrijenhoek has been studying the Mexican Poeciliid fish for more than 30 years. Some species of Poeciliopsis reproduce sexually while others reproduce asexually. Vrijenhoek found that the genetic diversity produced by sexual reproduction allowed the sexual fish to survive a parasite more successfully than the asexual fish. Invoking the Red Queen hypothesis, Vrijenhoek suggests the sexual populations are able to keep up or adapt to new selective challenges, while the asexual populations, essentially clonal, are not. Supplemental resources, including a background essay and discussion questions, are also provided.
