Description

Learn science in a way that is engaging and effective. Take part in interactive simulations that let you manipulate objects in a virtual environment to learn all about them.

Change the length of the sides of an interactive 3-D cube to see how it affects its surface area and volume. Then after studying surface area-to-volume ratios, learn how this ratio influences the rate of heat loss in objects and in animals.

• Manipulate the size of a cube to observe changes to its surface area and volume.
• Collect data and analyze a graph.
• Calculate surface area-to-volume ratios.
• Compare the surface area-to-volume ratio of small and large organisms.
• Consider examples of organisms’ adaptations to minimize heat loss.
