3.6 Summary Three explanations of poverty developed by social scientists have been considered. The first sees poverty as natural or inevitable, the second focuses on the behaviour of poor people, while the third analyses poverty as the result of economic or political processes. Considering these explanations makes it possible to draw some conclusions about the social science approach to social problems: It relies on arguments making causal claims, rather than ass

Ancient Warriors - Sioux
This 25 minute video does an excellent job of showing how the Sioux used the environment and their culture to dominate the plains. Some scenes may be too dramatic for younger students. Shows how the American troop massacred them after the Battle of Little Big Horn.

UW School of Pharmacy
The UW School of Pharmacy prepares Doctor of Pharmacy students to improve the health of individuals and communities. It creates leaders who will innovate health care, conduct important research, teach future generations and increase the public's access to and knowledge of medicines. Take a look at the University of Washington's School of Pharmacy's PharmD program.

Introducing Field Environmental-Analytical Chemistry in the Quantitative Analysis Laboratory
This paper describes the rationale for introducing students to analytical chemistry in the context of environmental sciences. The authors describe the implementation of a lab for nonmajors with a field sampling component. The lab is interdisciplinary and provides training in skills and topics relevant to environmental analyses.
Exploring the Material World Activity
What is it about a material that makes it hard, brittle, or a good electrical conductor? Powerful new tools like the Advanced Light Source help scientists probe the inner structure of materials. Bring the scientific research done at the the Advanced Light Source into your classroom using this complete teaching module.
Hidden Line Elimination in Projected Grid Surfaces
The hidden line and hidden surface problems are simpler when restricted to special classes of objects. An example is the class of grid surfaces, that is, graphs of bivariate functions represented by their values on a set of grid points. Projected grid surfaces have geometric properties which permit hidden line or hidden surface elimination to be done more easily than in the general case. These properties are discussed in this paper, and an algorithm is given which exploits them
Take a look at the progress being made as NASA builds America's deep space exploration spacecraft in this fast-paced music video.
The Magician's Catapult
In this activity, students reinforce their understanding of compound machines by building a catapult. This compound machine consists of a lever and a wheel-and-axel. Catapults have been designed by engineers for a variety of purposes from lifting boulders into the air for warfare to human beings for entertainment; the projectiles in this activity are grapes for a magic act. Given the building materials, students design and build their catapult to launch a grape a certain distance.
Martha Leads the Charge
While General George Washington commanded the troops in the field, Martha led the charge at home. Historic Interpreter Lee Ann Rose describes the impact women made during the Revolution.
Timelines and Afghanistan
General Petraeus expresses confidence that Afghan security forces are on track to take on security for their country. Deborah Lutterbeck reports.

La Tutoría adaptada al EEES en las Prácticas Escolares de los Títulos de Maestro (2010)
Los títulos de Grado de Maestro deben diseñarse de acuerdo con las directrices propias establecidas por el Ministerio de Educación. Dentro de esas directrices, las Prácticas Escolares tienen un elevado peso, tal como ha sido tradicional en los Planes de Estudio de Magisterio y de acuerdo con su marcado carácter profesionalizador. La Facultad de Educación de la Universidad de Murcia ha optado por un modelo de prácticas tuteladas en las que intervienen activamente tanto tutores profesiona
Crime, Heredity and Insanity in American History
Notre Dame OpenCourseware (OCW) offers free educational resources for the course "Crime, Heredity and Insanity in American History" in the History Department. This course will give students an opportunity to learn more about the ways in which Americans have thought about crime and insanity and how their ideas have changed over time.
Popular Policing Video Lecture Part II
This seminar is part of a digital course Trends in the Governance of Security introduced by Clifford Shearing which focuses on civic or popular policing John Cartwright focuses on a particular case of civic policing called the Zwelethemba model where local communities are involved in peacekeeping in the area of Zwelethemba near Cape Town This model of policing is a method of governing security at the local level which is informed by and mobilizes local capacity and knowledgeLearning across Borde
Why is Nanotechnology Multidisciplinary? A perspective of one EE
The field of nano-science and nano-technology covers a broad area of expertise. Classical fields of Physics, Chemistry, Material Science, Electrical/Mechanical/Chemical Engineering all are involved in the "new" field f nano. Research and development in that area is by its very nature multi-disciplinary, since I bridge a large length scale from atoms to systems and timescales from femto seconds to eternity. This presentation will give a personal perspective of an electrical engineer in the area o
