How does a "Multi-Day" course work?

Meets multiple times at scheduled times
Live video chats, recorded and monitored for safety and quality
Discussions via classroom forum and private messages with the teacher
Great for engaging projects and interacting with diverse classmates from other states and countries

Description

Class Experience

Students will investigate and gain better understanding of:
- Spectrophotometry
- Fish dissection
- Sampling
- Phytoplankton and Zooplankton
- Water quality

National Standards Met:
● CCSS.Math.Content.6.RP.A.1 Understand the concept
of a ratio and use ratio language to describe a ratio relationship between two quantities.
● CCSS.Math.Content.6.RP.A.2 Understand the concept of a unit rate 𝑎/𝑏 associated with a ratio 𝑎:𝑏 with 𝑏 ≠ 0, and use rate language in the context of a ratio relationship.
● CCSS.Math.Content.6.RP.A.3.a Make tables of equivalent ratios relating quantities with whole-number measurements, find missing values in the tables, and plot the pairs of values on the coordinate plane. Use tables to compare ratios.
● MS-LS1-6. Construct a scientific explanation based on evidence for the role of 
photosynthesis in the cycling of matter and flow of energy into and out of 
organisms.
● MS-LS2-1 – Analyze and interpret data to provide evidence for the effects of 
resource availability on organisms and populations of organisms in an 
ecosystem.
● MS-LS2-2 – Construct an explanation that predicts patterns of interactions 
among organisms across multiple ecosystems.
● MS-LS2-3 – Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics. Develop a 
model to describe the cycling of matter and flow of energy among living and 
nonliving parts of an ecosystem.
● MS-LS2-4 – Ecosystems: Interactions, Energy, and Dynamics. Construct an 
argument supported by empirical evidence that changes to physical or 
biological components of an ecosystem affect populations
I have ten years of teaching experience. My Masters degree is in Animal Science with research in aquaculture. I also have a Bachelor's in Animal Science with minors in Chemistry and Fish & Wildlife.
