Working as a CDC researcher, students investigate an outbreak of multi-drug resistant bacterial infections and determine how evolution was involved by tracing the source and cause of the outbreak.
Student progress is automatically saved so that STEM Cases can be completed over multiple sessions.
|High School||This version is for general biology classes||40-50 min|
|AP||This version is for AP level classes||50-75 min|
Most content from the Expanded Handbook is included in the corresponding STEM Case.
|High School||The Expanded Handbook covers allele frequency, directional, stabilizing, and disruptive selection in addition to the concepts covered in the handbook section of the High School Case||20-25 min|
|AP||The AP Handbook is identical to the handbook section in the AP Case||20-25 min|
This gives the students some background (copied from parts of Teacher Guide) and then an outline of the t... (more)opics they will work on in the Handbook. It is formatted to be converted smoothly to a Google Document. I then have the students do the full STEM Case using their notes for the handbook ques.
