Soundscapes Student/Teacher/Scientist Partnership

If you are interested in participating as a teacher collaborator in the Soundscapes Project please fill out this form to aid in our planning and so we can get in touch with you. Filling out this form will not commit you to the project and we understand that you may not be teaching the same subjects or grade levels in future years. We will not send you any SPAM.
Thank you for taking the time to respond.

-Dr. Michael Giamellaro, Assistant Professor of Science & Mathematics Education, Oregon State University

    Topics Covered

    Please indicate which topics you cover in your classes, which topics you do not cover but would like to, and which topics you do not anticipate addressing. These are topics selected from the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS).
     Influence of engineering, technology, and science on society and the natural world
    Analyzing data to answer research questions
    Develop and use a model to describe that waves are reflected, absorbed, or transmitted through various materials
    Communicating technical information about how some technological devices use the principles of wave behavior and wave interactions with matter to transmit and capture information and energy.
    Using mathematical representations to describe a simple model for waves that includes how the amplitude of a wave is related to the energy in a wave.
    Using mathematical representations to support a claim regarding relationships among the frequency, wavelength, and speed of waves traveling in various media.
    The relationships among management of natural resources, the sustainability of human populations, and biodiversity
    Evaluating or refining solutions that reduce impacts of human activities on natural systems
    Evaluating competing design solutions for developing, managing, or utilizing resources based on cost-benefit ratios
    Applying scientific principles to design a method for monitoring and minimizing a human impact on the environment
    Constructing an explanation based on evidence that describes how genetic variation in a population changes individuals' probability of surviving and reproducing in a specific environment
    Using mathematical representations to support explanations of how natural selection may lead to increases and decreases of specific traits in a population over time
    Using argument based on empirical evidence and scientific reasoning to support an explanation for how characteristic animal behaviors affect the probability of successful reproduction 
    Constructing an explanation that predicts patterns of interactions among organisms across multiple ecosystems
    Evaluating competing design solutions for maintaining biodiversity and ecosystem services
    Analyzing and interpreting data to provide evidence for the effects of resource availability on organisms and populations in an ecosystem
    Constructing an argument supported by empirical evidence that changes to physical or biological components of an ecosystem affect populations
    Using computational representations to support explanations of factors that affect carrying capacity of ecosystems at different scales
    Using mathematical representations to support and revise explanations based on evidence about factors affecting biodiversity and populations in ecosystems at different scales
    Evaluating the claims, evidence, and reasoning that the complex interactions in ecosystems maintain relatively consistent numbers and types of organisms in stable conditions, but changing conditions may result in a new ecosystem
    Designing, evaluating, and refining a solution for reducing the impacts of human activities on the environment and biodiversity
    Creating or revising a simulation to test a solution to mitigate adverse impacts of human activity on biodiversity
    Evaluating the evidence supporting claims that changes in environmental conditions may result in: (1) increases in the number of individuals of some species, (2) the emergence of new species over time, and (3) the extinction of other species
