Abstract

Scientists often integrate measurements and data from various sources to ask questions and perform investigations. The exercises described here allow students to think critically and understand concepts that affect biological organisms as they make hypotheses about a selected stream or river, then graph, analyze, and interpret physical and chemical water-quality data (and possibly weather data) from local sources. Details on how to access, download, and manage data sets are provided.
