Meet Michigan State University freshman finance major Isaac Anguiano from Tyler, Texas, who is featured in the MSU President's Report.
Building A Computer Aid for Teaching Architectural Design Concepts
Building an aid for teaching architectural design concepts is the process of elaborating topics, defining problems and suggesting to the students strategies for solving those problems. I believe students in Environment and Behavior (E&B) courses at Georgia Tech can benefit greatly from a computer based educational tool designed to provide them with experiences they currently do not possess. In particular, little time in the course (outside lectures) is devoted to applying concepts taught in the
Didactic Design: light and optics for preschool level
Since 2003, we have been developing a pedagogic proposal and didactic material for teaching Light and Optics to kindergarden children that enhances the construction of the first scientific thinking schemes. The design (industrial and graphic) applied to this project has generated an educational product composed of 44 objects. These materials allow teaching concepts such as: combination of colors, light indispensable to see, formation of shadows and images are not objects. These have been develop
Cell Division- Meiosis
This video breaks down the different stages of the meiosis cell division. It will give students an animated view of how the cells divide and transform.
8.022 Physics II: Electricity and Magnetism (MIT)
Course 8.022 is one of several second-term freshman physics courses offered at MIT. It is geared towards students who are looking for a thorough and challenging introduction to electricity and magnetism. Topics covered include: Electric and magnetic field and potential; introduction to special relativity; Maxwell's equations, in both differential and integral form; and properties of dielectrics and magnetic materials. In addition to the theoretical subject matter, several experiments in electric
Technical Aspects of the Urban Simulator in Tampere University of Technology
The colour video recording Urban Simulator in TUT was built very early compared with the development of video systems. A contract for planning the simulator electronics, mechanics and camera systems was made in january 1978 with two TUT students: Jani Granholm (computer science and engineering) and Ilkka Alavalkama (machine design and automation). Ease of control and maintenance were asked by side of ?human movement inside coloured small-scale architectural models?. From the beginning, all compo

11.201 Gateway: Planning Action (MIT)
This class introduces first semester MCP students to the persistent themes and challenges facing planners. The goals of this class are: to excite students about their chosen profession; to offer a theoretical framework for thinking about the kinds of interventions that planners are expected to take; to introduce students to some of the most interesting and challenging theoretical debates in the planning field; and to press students to think about the best way of using their time to ensure their
UA Celebrates the Year of the Horse with Festival
To ring in the Chinese new year and celebrate the year of the horse, the Confucius Center at the University of Arizona co-hosted a festival at Centennial Hall. Performances at the Chinese New Year Festival included traditional and contemporary dance, martial arts displays, children's choirs and music by the Purple Bamboo Ensemble, the performing group of the UA Asian Music Club.
Why government guarantees are a double-edged sword
Professor Julian Franks looks at why banks were so highly levered prior to and even during the crisis. His recent research with Professor Viral Acharya discusses the impact government guarantees have had on bank debt.
Celebrating the international student experience
A selection of photographs taken by The University of Nottingham's international students while enjoying their time in the UK. Some of these are from excursions organised by the International Office and others are from students' own travel and recreation around Nottingham and elsewhere in the the UK. Further details about the support available to international students, including our excursions and events, can be found on our support services webpages. http://www.nottingham.ac.uk/International

Voronoi diagram Voro [Schemata]: Application of interactive weighted voronoi diagrams as an alternat
This paper explores the application of Interactive Weighted Voronoi diagrams in business park master plans through site specific testing, derivation of zoning parameters and creation of an applet.
Exploraci?n de relaciones entre analog?as y bocetos durante la generaci?n de ideas en dise?o industr
An exploration on the analogy-based idea generation process in industrial design is reported. In particular we try to identify relationships between the sketching process and the analogy building in order to elicit requirements for a supporting software. We use concurrent think aloud protocols to obtain experimental data and an extension of a proved content oriented schema to analyze them. Statistical analysis on segments containing .analogical chains. found relations between analogical and desi
Architecture as Drawing, Perception and Cognition
This work is about realizing that human perception is inherent to architecture. It is an asset and a trait subject to training and development in an empirical way, involving physical and manual action. It cannot be taught literally through convention and logic reasoning. It is a human achievement of great significance built on intellectual and scientific knowledge. It is something, being physical and empirical, that is supported on instrumental procedure. The computer, as a machine and an instru

Future Proofing Business: Beyond CSR
Pamela Hartigan, Director, Skoll Centre for Social Entrepreneurship, Saïd Business School, discusses some emerging models of entrepreneurial ventures that have a social and/or environmental mission at their core. Pamela Hartigan reviews the sources of capital available for these types of organizations, given that their aim is PURPOSE maximization rather than PROFIT maximization. She examines how these new ventures are similar but different to charities and mainstream business. She examines
