Van Deventer, William C.; Duyser, Lucille
The major ideas of the unit are: normal curves, gradients, extrapolation and interpolation, directional change, cyclic change, and dynamic equilibrium. Some 28 different inquiry-oriented laboratory experiences are designed to develop understanding of these major ideas. The laboratory experience format is as follows: Introduction, Materials and Equipment, Collecting Data, and Follow-up. These experiences cut across subject matter areas, ranging from biology to chemistry and geology and include such topics as evolution, chemical indicators, and topographical maps. (BR)
