The Fundamentals of Measuring Dissolved Oxygen

Students learning about dissolved oxygen

October 13, 2022

1:00–2:00 p.m. PDT | 4:00–5:00 p.m. EDT

Dissolved oxygen is a common parameter used to determine ecosystem health and productivity. Whether your students are observing changes in dissolved oxygen concentrations or learning about the quality of an aquatic environment, Vernier dissolved oxygen probes can help you engage them in hands-on environmental science learning.

Join biology and environmental science expert Colleen McDaniel for a chance to have your questions answered about dissolved oxygen and any of the Vernier probes used to measure it, including the Go Direct® Optical Dissolved Oxygen Probe.

You will learn tips and best practices for

  • How to instruct your class through sample collection
  • Which experimental protocols you need to highlight
  • Troubleshooting your sensors’ functionality

Tips for Expanding How You Teach Boyle’s Law

September 20, 2022

9:00–10:00 a.m. PDT | 12:00–1:00 p.m. EDT

Take the pressure off teaching Boyle’s law! Join Vernier chemistry experts Nüsret Hisim and Melissa Hill, PhD

You’ll learn the ins and outs of teaching this concept to students with the Go Direct® Gas Pressure Sensor and our Vernier Graphical Analysis Pro app. In the process, you’ll get a tour of our tools for data collection, data analysis, calculated columns, curve fits, and data export. We will also demonstrate data sharing to multiple screens so that students can easily share information as they work.

Join Vernier physics experts Fran Poodry and Jake Hopkins for a chance to ask them anything about our Dynamics Cart and Track System with the Go Direct® Sensor Cart! Carts and tracks are standard tools in many physics classrooms. Here’s your opportunity to explore all the parts included in each set of Vernier carts and tracks, as well as learn how to use them.

You’ll also learn tips and best practices, including

  • Multiple ways to connect photogates to the track
  • How to use a motion detector with a cart on a track
  • How to set up elastic and inelastic collisions

A New View on Physics: Using Video Analysis to Boost Student Engagement

Students buy into learning experiences that allow them to express their creativity. We will help you set your students up for success with our Vernier Video Analysis® app by providing some essential tips for capturing great video with smartphones. These will cover phone camera settings, as well as lighting and composition considerations. We will also explore an example from our newest physics e-book, Video Analysis: Conservation Laws and Forces.

Experiment: 

  • Analysis of Jumping (Video Analysis: Conservation Laws and Forces, Experiment 4)

Take the Plunge: Demonstrating the Diving Reflex

All marine mammals have a reflex for diving in cold water. When cold water contacts the face and nostrils during a dive, heart rate and cardiac output decrease dramatically as blood is shunted away from the extremities and directed to the vital organs. A much smaller version of the diving reflex occurs in humans. In this webinar, we will demonstrate how you can teach your students this biological concept using our Vernier Graphical Analysis™ Pro app, Vernier sensors, and a large bowl of cold water.

Experiment: 

  • “Diving Reflex” (Human Physiology Experiments: Volume 2, Experiment 6)
