And once that first kernel pops, it will never be a kernel again..is forever changed! ) Teaching example using popcorn to teach radioactive decay "A variety of a chemical element (strictly, of one particular element) which is distinguished from the other varieties of the element by a different mass number but shares the same atomic number and chemical properties (and so occupies the same position in the periodic table)." That definition may not mean anything to them.by Tas Walker A geologist works out the relative age of a rock by carefully studying where the rock is found in the field.By looking at other outcrops in the area, our geologist is able to draw a geological map which records how the rocks are related to each other in the field.

I study how bone tissue, growth, and metabolism evolve at macroevolutionary time scales.
