Really excite your AP biology, ecology, and biochemistry students with these real-world applications of the sciences in solving problems. Each case is presented in a narrative, and the learner resources include advice on reading cases, collecting data, and all the steps to solve the problems. There are over two dozen problems across several biology, chemistry, ecology, and molecular biology disciplines. These are college-level problems, so you may want to use one as a whole-class activity to model the process and spur enthusiasm for further scientific study. The ideal is then to allow groups of students to continue with the investigations, if they have sufficient knowledge to do so on their own.

tag(s): genetics (90), scientific method (64)

In the Classroom

Review the cases and select one that extends your curriculum, then share it on a projector so students are not overwhelmed by the level of sophistication at first. These would also be ideal for gifted high school students interested in the sciences.

High school chemistry teachers will find this collection dealing with the chemistry behind everyday objects and substances an interesting way to connect chemistry's abstractions to real life. Dealing with everything from light sticks to asphalt and baseballs, the site explains the chemical processes that make these things valuable.

In the Classroom

If you're looking for good examples of applications, these might make an interesting starting point.

It's goofy, but it just might work! Imagine the elements of the periodic table. Now imagine them as lyrics set to the music of Arthur Sullivan (as in "The Pirates of Penzance"), and you can begin to grasp the unique nature of this animated little gem. A perfect anticipatory set to liven up your science class. This site requires FLASH. If you see a blank screen, you need to install the Flash player. Get it from the TeachersFirst Toolbox page.

Chemistry students can breathe a sigh of relief. Help is only a mouse click away. This straightforward site, designed specifically for high school students, offers numerous tutorials covering such concepts as the nature of proof; atomic, molecular, and formula mass; significant digits, and atmospheric chemistry. A series of well-organized experiments provides assistance to chemistry teachers as well. While lacking in pizzazz, the site is rich in useful content.

This series of articles reveals the chemistry behind everyday products like toothpaste, silly putty, Cheese Wiz, and erasers. These fascinating and sometimes shocking revelations will motivate your students to pursue an investigation of their own favorite product. This award-winning site can be incorporated into an environmental science unit or used as a basis for a research project.

In the Classroom

Use these articles as a way to show how chemistry affects students' everyday life. Once a week, select a product and show it to students via printed article or via interactive whiteboard. Have students create concept maps or graphic organizers, showing how chemistry led to the creation of the product.

Oxford University's "pre-university" chemistry introduction may well be beyond the scope of most high school students, but the characteristically verbose presentations provide an interesting approach for an introduction to the subject. While secondary chemistry teachers may find the approach interesting, its actual utility in the classroom will depend largely on your local curriculum.
