University begins task of replanting downed elms with diversity
Penn State has lost over 70 elm trees, most to Dutch Elm disease and Elm Yellows. While arborists have fought the good fight, there are enough trees downed that have made the planning and installation of replacement trees a reality. Produced by C. Roy Parker
Order Whole Numbers with StudyJams
Whether you are putting scores in order to figure out who won the game or dates in order for a histor project, being able to order whole numbers is important. These step-by-step strategies from StudyJams will make it a cinch! A short, self-checking quiz is also included with this interactive link.
Seafood Forensics: Crabby Proteins
A laboratory exercise to perform protein analysis of crab tissue using horizontal agarose gel electrophoresis to determine if species substitution has occurred.
Work effectively in the security industry
This is the task for the activity Work effectively in the security industry. It asks students to complete a diary based on daily orders for a job at Kingscliffe Shopping City. They will need to prioritise their daily tasks to complete the activity.
How Big? Lesson
The objective of Lesson 2 is for student teams to determine the size of the caverns. Lesson two has student teams measure their classroom to determine area and volume; determine how many people could comfortably sleep in their classroom; scale this number up to find the required area for all Alabraskans. The lesson provides a good application of area and volume concepts. Students also perform math conversions between feet, meters, miles and kilometers.
The Power to Fax Last week, this office had to send a fax, and the receiving number was the same for fax and voice lines. Of course that trick never really worked well in the 1980s, and it doesn't work well today. The fax didn't get there, and I had to go through the error logs to figure out why, and then try again. That meant hunkering down, again, over a machine with a wired phone sitting on top — a li

11.2 Frequency discrimination
Hearing is a familiar and important human sense that is a topic naturally of interest to those who are curious about human biology. This unit will enable you to relate what you read to your own sensory experiences – and indeed many of the questions asked have exactly that function. This unit will be best understood by those with some biological understanding.
"Introduction to Biological Engineering Design, Spring 2009"
" This class is a project-based introduction to the engineering of synthetic biological systems. Throughout the term, students develop projects that are responsive to real-world problems of their choosing, and whose solutions depend on biological technologies. Lectures, discussions, and studio exercises will introduce (1) components and control of prokaryotic and eukaryotic behavior, (2) DNA synthesis, standards, and abstraction in biological engineering, and (3) issues of human practice, includ
Heat Transfer Lesson
Students explore heat transfer and energy efficiency using the context of energy efficient houses. They gain a solid understanding of the three types of heat transfer: radiation, convection and conduction, which are explained in detail and related to the real world. They learn about the many ways solar energy is used as a renewable energy source to reduce the emission of greenhouse gasses and operating costs. Students also explore ways in which a device can capitalize on the methods of heat tran
1.3 The origins of voice-leading analysis
This unit introduces ‘voice-leading’ or ‘Schenkerian’ analysis, perhaps the most widely-used and discussed method of analysing tonal music. In this unit, this method is explained through the analysis of piano sonatas by Mozart. The unit is the first in the AA314 series of three units on this form of harmonic analysis, and concentrates on the ‘foreground level’ of voice leading. As you work through this unit, you will become familiar with five complete movements of Mozart’s piano

How Does Hail Form
Hail forms with an uplift that involves air rising, cooling and
condensing as the temperature goes down. Discover how hail can get
larger through winds that pick it up and coat it with more ice with help
from the chair of a department of environmental studies in this 1:30 video. Good graphics.
Take Their Word for It!
Students learn how scientific terms are formed using Latin and Greek roots, prefixes and suffixes, and on that basis, learn to make an educated guess about the meaning of a word. Students are introduced to the role played by metaphor in language development.

"Writing About Race: Narratives of Multiraciality, Fall 2008"
" In this course we will read essays, novels, memoirs, and graphic texts, and view documentary and experimental films and videos which explore race from the standpoint of the multiracial. Examining the varied work of multiracial authors and filmmakers such as Danzy Senna, Ruth Ozeki, Kip Fulbeck, James McBride and others, we will focus not on how multiracial people are seen or imagined by the dominant culture, but instead on how they represent themselves. How do these authors approach issues of
