Dr. Carrick has developed a series of in-class games designed to engage students in direct problem-solving activities using a series of models for BIO 523 and BIO 526 Limnology. The models provide a framework around which rules the rules of the games are organized. For instance, in a food web game (entitled “Food Web Checkers”), the students use poker chips to trace carbon flow through a simple 4 trophic level food chain with a single return (or detrital side chain). Finally, they can deter how much the efficiency changes if some of the detrital carbon is return (through recycling) to the main food chain.
