AbstractThe biology´s teaching contains a series of representations, such as natural language, graphics, tables, diagrams, figures, which can be analyzed as registers of semiotic representation. Duval proposes a watchful eye on the teacher's students' difficulties, to perform conversion between different registers of semiotic representation. This study, exploratory, analyzes in the light of this theory such difficulties, within the simulation "Fluctuations in populations" proposed by Krasilchick (2004). To collect the data, we conducted a course with students of 2nd year of high school in Technical Environment. Of the two types of conversion semiotics, students had greater difficulties in conversions not congruent. Issues not congruent simulation proposal require the skills of explaining phenomena and the relationship between them and greater teacher attention at the time of change and coordination of the different registers of representation.

PALS - Performance Assessment Links in Science1999-01PALS is an on-line, standards-based, continually updated resource bank of science performance assessment tasks indexed via the National Science Education Standards (NSES) and various other standards frameworks. The tasks, collected from numerous sources, include student directions and response forms, administration procedures, scoring rubrics, examples of student work, and technical quality data calculated from field testing. On-line rater training packets have also been created for some tasks. PALS is supported by a grant from the Elementary, Secondary, and Informal Education (ESIE) Division (Grant #: ESI-9730651) of the National Science Foundation.

NASA Earth Observatory: Biomes (title provided or enhanced by cataloger)This National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) website allows students to investigate biomes and then test their knowledge by completing missions. The site provides basic data about each biome such as temperature, precipitation, vegetation, location, description and links. Biomes discussed include coniferous forest, temperate deciduous forest, desert, grassland, rainforest, shrubland and tundra. The two missions (available at beginner and advanced levels) are designed to teach students about the relationship between temperature and precipitation and plants in biomes. A teacher resource guide provides details about goals, expected outcomes, extension ideas, and hands-on activities.
