"A look at what is PULSE-ing"

This Prezi presentation can be used in two ways: (1) a traditional linear presentation where you use the arrows that appear when you move the cursor to the bottom of your screen; and (2) as a hypertext driven screen where you can pick and choose which elements you want to explore. 

To view the PULSE Prezi presentation first move your cursor to the middle-right hand portion of your screen.  You will see a menu appear with a home symbol and two symbols for zooming in and zooming out.  Click on the home symbol.  At this point you will see the whole presentation, at which point you can see how we see PULSE as an integrated set of activities along the bottom with a series of elements that provide a bit of history along the top. 

To start the linear presentation (1) move your cursor back to the bottom and begin by clicking the right arrow. You can go through the whole presentation click by click.  At the end, right-click you mouse and you will see a prompt to reset the presentation.

Alternatively, if you just want to focus on certain elements (2) then move you cursor to that element and click.  With each click the presentation will zoom into a PULSE square.  You can zoom back out by moving your cursor back to the middle right, right-clicking to see the zoom out option, or scroll you finger on you mouse wheel if you have one.

@Jean Maines - I've moved your query to a discussion on this page, where threaded responses are easier to follow, OK?

Greetings fellow pulses. Quick question--do you know the approximate % of students who pass (a-c) freshman biology for science majors at your institution? Anyone know where to find this data nationally?

Thanks for any help you can provide!

Hi Brian and David; great to hear from you, and to have your support!

Is there anything that you could suggest as a way to pull in more of the PULSE community in the Southwest? Would a reminder of the resources available (Ambassador Visits, On-lineWorkshops and the ToolKit) be useful? We are planning a SW PULSE Workshop for next Spring, but that is a long way away (and we will have to get funding).

Any ideas are welcome!

I will be glad to help in any way and promote our activities through the Society for College Science Teachers and the National Association of Biology Teachers.

Hi everyone! I am very excited that the Southwest group is now a reality. After a brief 2 days to catch up on sleep I am now re-energized, and ready to think about all that we can do in our region.
