Alternative project

Begin with an Ill-Structured and “messy” problem

  • How do the living and non-living

    components of the environment

    relate to each other?

  • The study site project addresses the

    importance of an actual 3-D

    experience to a 2-D virtual

    experience when learning

    GIS.


Alternative project

Why is there a problem? Background

What is the problem? Problem Question

What are the possible Hypothesis/

solutions to the problem? Procedure

What would happen if

you solved the problem in Data/Results

this way?

What is the best solution?

Digitizing to Create a Group Project


Alternative project

Develop Individual Procedure and collect data use Problem-Solving Graphic Organizer to Formulate Problem Question

  • Is plant stand affected by soil type?

  • What type of relationship exists between the trees

    and ground cover, and the presence or absence of

    various animals?

  • Which variables we studied within our study site are

    most conductive to a higher spider population?

  • Does baiting the pitfall traps increase the number

    and diversity of numbers of animals that are

    attracted to or fall into the traps?
