This multimedia resource, part of the NC Science Now series, describes how researchers at the Hammer Institutes and UNC Chapel Hill are collaborating to find out why a small percentage of the population may have a dangerous reaction to a medicine while the majority of people are not affected. Components of this resource include a video and a related blog article. Links to these components are provided on the page under the heading "UNC-TV Media." Discussion questions are also included.

ATP The Fuel of Life

ATP The Fuel of Life

Rating
0.0 stars

The goal of this lesson is to introduce students who are interested in human biology and biochemistry to the subtleties of energy metabolism (typically not presented in standard biology and biochemistry textbooks) through the lens of ATP as the primary energy currency of the cell. Avoiding the details of the major pathways of energy production (such as glycolysis, the citric acid cycle, and oxidative phosphorylation), this lesson is focused exclusively on ATP, which is truly the fuel of life.

Adaptation and Evolution

Rating
4.0 stars

Students will investigate comparative anatomy of organisms - visually, verbally, and kinesthetically - and how these organisms have changed through adaptation and evolution. To meet this objective, each group of students will perform seven independent activities at seven separate stations.

Alien Invasion: The Spread of Invasive Species in the United States

Alien Invasion: The Spread of Invasive Species in the United States

Rating
0.0 stars

Students investigate factors that limit the spread of invasive species in the United States. They compare the spread and limiting factors of three classes of invasive species - insects, plants, and aquatic invertebrates - through data sets from the National Atlas and readings on invasive species issues. This activity is part of "Investigating Your World With My World GIS," a set of activities designed for use with My World GIS software (which can be downloaded at www.natgeoed/myworldgis) to help students learn key content and practice spatial problem solving.

Amoebas & Temperature

Amoebas & Temperature

Rating
2.0 stars

This lesson will expose students to some of the problems amoebas have caused to residents of Florida. Studies have shown that virulent strains of amoebas from the genera Naegleria and Acanthamoeba have the ability to grow at high temperatures, while non-virulent strains are unable to grow at normal or elevated body temperatures.
