Basic Liquid Chromatography
A complete textbook of liquid chromatography by Yuri Kazakevich and Harold McNair on the Web. Extraordinarily comprehensive in its coverage of fundamental chromatographic theory and instrumentation for a website.
This site contains detailed course materials for an environmental geochemistry class. The site includes lecture notes and on-line quizzes as pdf files. This site provides detailed information about important concepts dealing with the general interface of analytical and environmental geochemistry including sections on chemical equilibria, heavy metals, organic pollutants, and mineral solubility. This material will be especially useful for students and faculty interested in practical application
This site by GlobalFia provides a tutorial on the general aspects of flow injection analysis (FIA), sequential injection analysis (SIA) and the newly coined zone fluidics. Thus, it serves as an excellent resource for teaching flow methods to both undergraduates and graduate students, and as a refresher to practitioners. The tutorials are divided into 9 sections: introduction, fundamentals, dispersion, enrichment, chemistry, SIA, zone fluidics and bibliography. This modular approach makes inform
National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science
Compendium of web resources for faculty interested in incorporating problem-based learning and case studies in their courses. Case teaching notes, problem based learning. Article designed for faculty interested in incorportating case discussion in introductory and more advanced courses.
Classic Sesame Street-Bees and Honey
In the classic Sesame Street video, a beekeeper shows how bees make honey. This is a wonderful teaching resource for a lesson/unit on insects and/or flowers. It would also work well in conjunction with a story/basal on bees. Young students will enjoy the real life footage of bees and certainly will help to build background knowledge. Some of the key words addressed in this video include hive, beekeeper, and honeycombs. (2:03)
Basics of Fluid Mechanics
This book describes the fundamentals fluid mechanics phenomena for engineers and others. This book is designed to replace all introductory textbook(s) or instructor's notes for the fluid mechanics in undergraduate classes for engineering/science students but also for technical peoples. It is hoped that the book could be used as a reference book for people who have at least some basics knowledge of science areas such as calculus, physics, etc.
computer simulation of the demolition of a structure
This is created by VFIFE (V-5), a new finite element technique capable of calculation motion and stresses of a structural system. It is developed by Center for Bridge Engineering Research, National Central University, Taiwan.
Confronting Health Inequity: The Global Dimension
Since the days of Hippocrates, health inequities and the role of social and environmental factors in the determination of marked differences in health status have been well recognized. For some time now, the driving force behind public health has been understanding and intervening in the underlying causes of health inequity. The publication of the Black Report1 in the United Kingdom in 1980 brought a more focused approach to this discourse by identifying specific factors, such as social class, g

After Reconstruction: Studying the Problems of African-Americans in the South
This lesson encourages students to identify problems facing African Americans immediately after Reconstruction. Students then work in small groups to identify documents describing a particular problem, consider opposing points of view, and suggest a solution and present their research findings.
Built in America: Historic American Buildings Survey/Historic American Engineering Record, 1933-Pres
The materials available in Built in America: The Historic American Buildings Survey (HABS) and the Historic American Engineering Record (HAER) 1933-Present, provide an opportunity to develop critical thinking and creative writing skills. Descriptions and images of various buildings and structures in these collections provide the basis for research projects. Meanwhile, historic homes can serve as the catalyst for creative writing exercises and a discussion regarding the homes of authors such as F
From documents to digitization
To design a research project using primary sources from the Web, you'll need to know what's out there and how to find it. This article explains what's available, why, and where.
The aim of this lesson is to develop students' understanding of the importance of portfolio building. It is the seventh lesson in the study skills series and is intended to support adult learners who are embarking on a course of study and need to acquire skills which will help them to be successful. The lessons are designed as a package with key skills reinforced in each subsequent lesson so that a study culture is developed over time. They can be delivered sequentially or used individually, as
Guest of honor: A presidential banquet
A research assignment in which students plan a banquet in honor of a president.

A structural decomposition of the marriage premium
This thesis examines the wage gap among married and never married men. It is generally accepted that married men will have higher earnings than never married men. An income determination model was created to control for individual, structural, and gender level components. Theories were utilized for each model segment and provide a foundation from which this thesis builds upon. Through univariate, bivariate, and multivariate statistical analysis it was found that net of other factors married men
Scaling Galileo's Solar System - Locating the Globes
In this activity students plot the position of model planets on a campus map by converting from polar coordinates to Cartesian coordinates, after calculating the planet positions from scaled orbits and periods. They recreate spreadsheets, shown in a Powerpoint module, with formulas that answer various pieces of the overall question. This module is the fourth in a series of four on the Galilean Solar System, and was designed for an undergraduate class where students look at geological questions m
