How and why we do mathematical proofs
This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file. As taught in Autumn Semester 2009/10 The aim of this short unit is to motivate students to understand why we might want to do proofs (why proofs are important and how they can help us) and to help students with some of the relatively routine aspects of doing proofs. In particular, the student will learn the following: * proofs can help you to really see why a result is true; * problems that are easy to state
Confocal Microscopy Imaging of Micro-Spheres and Defects in Liquid Crystals
S. A. Jewell gives a talk at the LC2CAM 08 conference about the use of FCPM to see director distortions around imbedded objects and in-plane fields can be resolved in a sub-micron scale.
Urban Metabolism: Watching CO2 Change
Using an innovative observational array of micro-sensors, Ron Cohen is mapping plumes of carbon-dioxide emissions to trace them to their origin. As is well-known, these carbon emissions are having profound impacts on the temperature of the atmosphere, but this, in turn, has a large effect on clouds. Ronald C. Cohen, Director of the Berkeley Atmospheric Science Center, Professor and Vice Chair in the Department of Chemistry and Professor in the Department of Earth and Planetary Science at UC Be

This website, entitled Wyndham Lewis's Art Criticism in 'The Listener', 1946-1951, is the outcome of an AHRC research project, 2008-2009, at the University of Plymouth, England and the Universidad de La Rioja in Spain. Wyndham Lewis (1882-1957) was not only a major English artist of the twentieth century, who co-founded the Vorticist movement, he was also an important art critic, a novelist and short-story writer, a cultural commentator, a political theorist, and a philosopher. This research pro
Alexa, Human, Social, and Political Sciences (HSPS) -- 60 Second Impressions
The '60 Second Impressions' are a series of one-minute films featuring current Cambridge undergraduate students. These students talk about what it's really like to study at Cambridge, live in a College, and take part in a wide range of extra-curricular activities. Alexa is from the USA, and is studying HSPS. In her 60 Second Impression, she talks about the diverse range of people at Cambridge and activities available, as well as her own career aspirations. To find out more about HSPS at Camb
The PCR Song
"Scientists for Better PCR" produced this Bio-Rad Music video that is filmed in the style of a celebrity benefit. The music video is a commercial for a BioRad thermocycler, which is essentially a DNA copying machine. During the song, there are jokes about the particulars of reproducing the genetic material as well as terms students may need to become familiar. The value of the video is that the terms used provide insights into the uses of DNA and can provide students with an idea of how th

Science Fiction-Science Fact
Science fiction has always provided inspiration and ideas for the scientists and engineers who design and build real spacecraft. Many of our current technologies were predicted long ago in science fiction stories. Arthur C. Clarke, scientist turned writer, wrote the screenplay for 2001: A Space Odyssey. The narrator descibes space stations, spaceships, and the influence of Jules Verne's story From

Build it Better!
Students use their knowledge of tornadoes and damage. The students will work in groups to design a structure that will withstand and protect people from tornadoes. Each group will create a poster with the name of their engineering firm and a picture of their structure. Finally, each group will present their posters to the class.
Rockets need a lot of thrust to get into space. In this lesson, students learn how rocket thrust is generated with propellant. The two types of propellants are discussed and relation to their use on rockets is investigated. Students learn why engineers need to know the different properties of propellants.
