Floating and Sinking 1
Printable worksheet that works through a hands-on exploration of floating and sinking. Introduces the practice of recording ideas and observations.
Students are introduced to our planet's structure and its dynamic system of natural forces through an examination of the natural hazards of earthquakes, volcanoes, landslides, tsunamis, floods and tornados, as well as avalanches, fires, hurricanes and thunderstorms. They see how these natural events become disasters when they impact people, and how engineers help to make people safe from them. Students begin by learning about the structure of the Earth; they create clay models showing the Earth'

Monopsony and Antitrust Laws - Microeconomic Analysis
Microeconomic Analysis - Spring 2006. Resource allocation and price determination. By the end of the semester, students should know the basic theory, models, and results of the topics covered. They should be able to use this knowledge to answer questions and analyze real-world situations. They should also be able to identify which theory or model is appropriate to analyze a particular question and explain why their answers are correct in intuitive, as well as mathematical, terms.

Public Opening of Global Colloquium of University Presidents by Penn President Amy Gutmann
United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon opened the fifth annual meeting of the Global Colloquium of University Presidents on Monday, April 4, 2011, in a public address at the University of Pennsylvania on empowering women.
The Colloquium, a select group of university presidents from around the world, convened annually to discuss a topic of immediate concern to the secretary-general, addressed the challenge of "Empowering Women to Chang
21L.325 Small Wonders: Staying Alive (MIT)
This course closely examines a coherent set of short texts and/or visual works. The selections may be the shorter works of one or more authors (poems, short stories or novellas), or short films and other visual media. Additionally, we will focus on formal issues and thematic meditations around the title of the course "Staying Alive." Content varies from semester to semester.
Energy resources: Geothermal energy
Energy from sources other than fossil and nuclear fuels is to a large extent free of the concerns about environmental effects and renewability that characterise those two sources. Each alternative source supplies energy continually, whether or not we use it. This unit considers one of these alternative sources, geothermal energy derived from the interior heat of the Earth, and the potential for this alternative to supplant fossil and nuclear fuel use to power social needs fast enough to avoid th
Energy resources: Hyropower
Hydroelectric energy is ultimately solar energy converted through evaporation of water, movement of air masses and precipitation to gravitational potential energy and then to the kinetic energy of water flowing down a slope. That energy was harnessed for centuries through the use of water wheels to drive mills, forges and textile works, before being supplanted by coal-fired steam energy.
The unit considers hydropower as a potential source of useable energy. An OpenLearn Resource - Time: 3 hour
An introductory site about chromatography that does not go into great depth. However, the simulation of paper chromatography is worth exploring with students as it illustrates that the separation of compounds relies on the difference in the solutes affinities for the mobile phase relative to the stationary phase. Because of its apparent simplicity, this simulation has significant pedagogical potential and could be used in a variety of ways in class to explore the factors governing chromatograp
Endometrial Cancer Risks and Treatments
This is an interactive and self-directed learning module intended to build a foundation of knowledge around the epidemiology and late effects of cancer survival. Themes emphasized in this module are: epidemiology of survival; late effects; psychosocial concerns; secondary prevention; and strategies for behavior change.
What Went Wrong with U.S Foreign Policy - US Foreign Policy After 9/11
US Foreign Policy after 9/11 - Spring 2006. Lecture - Steve Walt, Academic Dean, Kennedy School, Harvard University. This course provides an opportunity to study and discuss issues and events having recent international impact and/or interest. The course will present a multidisciplinary perspective on specific subjects with the intent of linking students with the scholars and scholarship involved in understanding and explaining current international issues, events, and crisis. The subjects will
Carbon nanotube reinforced carbon nano composite fibrils by electro-spinning
Fibers of Polyacrylonitrile (PAN) are the precursor of 90% of produced carbon fibers. It is generally thought that the better the degree of molecular orientation in the original PAN fiber, the better the mechanical properties, in particular the modulus of the resultant fibers. Electro-spinning is a unique process in that it is able to produce polymer fibers having diameters ranging over seve ral orders of magnitude, from the micrometer range typical of conventional fibers down to the nanometer r
