Ocean Tracks began as an interface designed for high school students. The curriculum was created to guide students through their exploration of the Ocean Tracks interface. More recently, Ocean Tracks expanded their curriculum resources to help students at diverse undergraduate institutions.
Please note that we recommend using the undergraduate modules for both high school and undergraduate classrooms. The high school modules were developed several years ago and may be out of date. The undergraduate modules were developed building on knowledge gained from pilot testing the high school modules.
The goal of both curricula is to help students acquire critical scientific inquiry and data-analysis skills as they use the Ocean Tracks interface to investigate questions of current scientific interest about the movements of marine animals and their relationship to the ocean environment.
