Drip drops : how much water do you waste?
In this activity, students are given a situation in which a leaky faucet is dripping at the rate of one drop every two seconds. They are asked to decide if the water lost in one week would fill a drinking glass, a sink, or a bathtub. The activity, part of the Figure This! collection of 80 challenges, notes that mathematics is crucial for environmental and government agencies that must interpret data and report their findings to the public. The Hint states that a teaspoon holds about 20 drops. Th

Auburn vs. Furman (1956)
"Still smarting under the humiliation of their own mistakes in the opener, Auburn loosed its fury on Furman and finished with a 41-0 win before an estimated 15,000 in Cliff Hare Stadium. All told, Coach Shug Jordan's forces rolled up 587 yards, 524 of them on the ground, against the South Carolinians. The leading ground gainers were Tommy Lorino with 128 yards, Howell Tubbs with 93, and Jim Walsh with 89. It was a day of long runs with Lorino galloping 34 and Jimmy Cook running 21 for first-half

Auburn vs. Alabama (1954)
"The Auburn Tigers managed their first victory over Alabama since 1949 with a convincing 28-0 trouncing of the Crimson Tide. Bobby Freeman closed out his career with a brilliant performance in leading the Auburn attack. He received able assistance from the entire forward wall and the other starting backs Freeman accounted for the first touchdown with 12 seconds remaining in the first quarter, climaxing a 58 yard drive. Childress added the extra point and the men of Shug Jordan led at the half 7-

Auburn vs. Kentucky (1955)
"Fighting and clawing at each other like two wild animals in an arena, the Auburn Tigers and Kentucky Wildcats battled to a 14-14 tie before 34,000 fans in Birmingham. The bright green turf of Legion Field was a place only for men this day, as each team blew alternately hot and cold, making many mistakes, but always giving all it had. In a desperate attempt to pull this one out of the fire, Auburn tried three field goals, but could never succeed in putting the ball through the cross-bars. The ti

Seventeen Moments in Soviet History
Debates have raged for years over whether the Soviet legacy was best characterized by its successes or its crimes. Was Lenin's revolution one of history's great events, later perverted by Stalin; or was the October Revolution, which rejected God, dispossessed large segments of the population, and made the entire people subject to the state, flawed from the moment of inception? Rather than answering the question, we hope with this web site to help students and readers understand the more complica

Researching solutions to global water shortages
 Professor Nidal Hilal

Director of the University of Nottingham’s Centre for Clean Water Technologies.

Making sure the world’s population has enough drinking water is one of the biggest challenges we face today. A rapidly increasing global population, the fact that only a very small percentage of global water is available for consumption and an uneven global distribution of clean drinking water are the main problems in regard to the current g

Beyond Black History Month
Go beyond approaches that marginalize African American history by "shifting the lens" to look at events from new perspectives. Black History Month can be a wonderful celebration of the contributions that African Americans have made to American history and culture. All too often, however, those contributions are heralded in February but seldom mentioned throughout the rest of the year. Ideally, every month’s history curriculum should include those contributions, but how do you integrate Africa
