ESD.260J Logistics Systems (MIT)
This subject is a survey of the fundamental analytic tools, approaches, and techniques which are useful in the design and operation of logistics systems and integrated supply chains. The material is taught from a managerial perspective, with an emphasis on where and how specific tools can be used to improve the overall performance and reduce the total cost of a supply chain. We place a strong emphasis on the development and use of fundamental models to illustrate the underlying concepts involved
The Second Life of Urban Planning
Marcus Foth demonstrates the value of various tools and services (eg Second Life) for engaging people in novel and participatory planning exercises, and for investigating how the public interpret and understand proposed urban designs and urban planning. The majority of the world's citizens now live in cities. Although urban planning can thus be thought of as a field with significant ramifications on the human condition, many practitioners feel that it has reached a crisis in thought leadership.
6.632 Electromagnetic Wave Theory (MIT)
6.632 is a graduate subject on electromagnetic wave theory, emphasizing mathematical approaches, problem solving, and physical interpretation. Topics covered include: waves in media, equivalence principle, duality and complementarity, Huygens' principle, Fresnel and Fraunhofer diffraction, dyadic Green's functions, Lorentz transformation, and Maxwell-Minkowski theory. Examples deal with limiting cases of Maxwell's theory and diffraction and scattering of electromagnetic waves.

Burly Hyperbole Luchador
This computer generated video uses humor to help teach about hyperboles. As two luchadors prepare to fight, one quickly discovers that his opponent, Burly Hyperbole, likes to talk trash and in doing so exaggerates, a lot. Can you spot all of the hyperboles? The trash talking may not be appropriate for younger students unless a discussion is also included on bullying. (03:28)

Didactic Design: light and optics for preschool level
Since 2003, we have been developing a pedagogic proposal and didactic material for teaching Light and Optics to kindergarden children that enhances the construction of the first scientific thinking schemes. The design (industrial and graphic) applied to this project has generated an educational product composed of 44 objects. These materials allow teaching concepts such as: combination of colors, light indispensable to see, formation of shadows and images are not objects. These have been develop
Embedding enterprise in the curriculum
This presentation discusses the pioneering approach to the embedding of enterprise in the curriculum through people and pedagogy
9.12 Experimental Molecular Neurobiology (MIT)

This video explains how a central angle is an angle where the vertex is on the center of the circle and the endpoints are on the circle. The endpoints on the circle are also the endpoints for the angle's intercepted arc. The angle measure of the central angle is congruent to the measure of the intercepted arc which is an important fact when finding missing arcs or central angles. (2:12)
