Tree of Life

Tree of Life depicts modeling by showing all of life.

The Tree of Life Web Project is a collaborative effort of biologists and nature enthusiasts from around the world. On more than 10,000 World Wide Web pages, the project provides information about biodiversity, the characteristics of different groups of organisms, along with their evolutionary history.

Molecular Modeling at cwis at NYU

Molecular modeling (mathmol)takes advantage of the Web to display 3D models at the intersection of math and biology/chemistry and to mount a series for K-12 of hypermedia textbooks. The classroom activities are refreshing, especially the unit on water molecules for K-3.

Modeling Across the Curriculum (MAC)

Project MAC at the Concord Consortium has launched a $7 million project, sponsored by NSF, DOE and NIH and Harvard, Northwestern,and local schools etc., to build on modeling tools such as LOGO, Model-It, and Biology SW to generate an array of modeling tools across the curriculum and integrate with assessment of student progress to provide just-in-time remediation, a critical juncture in modeling projects. This approach foreshadows the sw tool and content tool integration trend.
