Preservation of the West
During the late 1800s, American industry's demand for more and more natural resources pushed Congress to recognize the need to explore and chart the geological characteristics and mineral wealth of the country. In 1864, William Brewer (seen third from the left in "Field Party of 1864"), chief botanist of the California Geological Survey, led the first state-sponsored expedition to survey, map, chart, document, and photograph vast, previously unexplored areas of California. The government sponsor
Quantum Transport: Atom to Transistor
The development of "nanotechnology" has made it possible to engineer materials and devices on a length scale as small as several nanometers (atomic distances are ~ 0.1 nm). The properties of such "nanostructures" cannot be described in terms of macroscopic parameters like mobility and diffusion coefficient and a microscopic or atomistic viewpoint is called for. The purpose of this course is to convey the conceptual framework that underlies this microscopic theory of matter which developed in cou
Buzz Williams on character, hard work and teamwork
Think of the Marquette men's basketball team as a stock. That's what coach Buzz Williams — a numbers lover if there ever was one — does. "We want to be a stock that you want to buy. We don't want to be a stock that you're scared of," he says. Which is exactly why he recruits players who are "great people," who love to work and who have character, which he discussed at the Oct. 19, 2010, CIRCLES event in New York.
Consulting pupils about teaching and learning
The resource is a summary, appearing on the GTCE website, of a three-year research project, led by Professor Jean Rudduck, as part of the Economic and Research Council, Teaching and Learning Research Programme. The project, a Research for Teachers (formerly Research of the Month) case study, considers the impact of consulting pupils about teaching and learning.
Looking at Learning ... Again, Part 2: Workshop 5. Infusing Critical and Creative Thinking
With Dr. Robert Swartz. Teachers can help students become good thinkers. Good thinkers raise key questions and gather and evaluate pertinent information, thus making informed decisions. But how do we teach students to think skillfully? In this workshop, you will see how thinking skills can be infused into science content instruction, contrasted with direct instruction in non-curricular contexts. You will also see classrooms where teachers have restructured their lessons to infuse thinking skills
Medicine and Film: Images of the Physican and Patient 1986

REMIXING ÇATALHÖYÜK For more than a decade, archaeologists and scholars have gathered in central Turkey to explore the remains of the 9,000-year-old village of Çatalhöyük. First excavated in the 1960s, Çatalhöyük became world-famous for its dense architecture and spectacular wall decorations. Between 1997 and 2003, a team from the University of California Berkeley worked intensively on one building there, bringing to light the life history of a Neolithic home. Remixing Çatalhöyük fea

Income, Poverty, and Health Insurance Coverage in the United St
This report presents data on income, poverty, and health insurance coverage in the United States based on information collected in the 2008 and earlier Annual Social and Economic Supplements (ASEC) to the Current Population Survey (CPS) conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. Data presented in this report indicate the following: • Real median household income increased between 2006 and 2007—the third annual increase.1 • The poverty rate was not statistically different between 2006 and 2007.
Uniform convergence and pointwise convergence
The aim of this material is to introduce the student to two notions of convergence for sequences of real-valued functions. The notion of pointwise convergence is relatively straightforward, but the notion of uniform convergence is more subtle. Uniform convergence is explained in terms of closed function balls and the new notion of sets absorbing sequences. The differences between the two types of convergence are illustrated with several examples. Some standard facts are also discussed: a uniform
The package was written in 1996. Radio immuno assay (RIA) is a technique for measuring concentrations of antigens. Although better techniques have subsequently been developed from it, understanding RIA forms the basis for understanding these derivatives. RIA belongs to the family of competition assays which are widely used in science, medicine and related industries to measure the concentrations of biologically active molecules. This package introduces the concepts of RIA and will be useful to a
Science of Sound
Welcome to Science of Sound. This course is offered as a regular class Fall Semesters on the USU campus in Logan, Utah. It is also available over the internet Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters, or as a yearlong independent-studies course. In each case, work is submitted using the internet.
