Environments of Africa
EARTH 105 investigates the interrelationships between geology, hydrology, land use and human development in several areas of Africa. We focus primarily on regions north of the equator, although there is a brife segment on South African mining. Specific topics include the Nile River (sources of the Nile, agricultural practices, effects of damming the Nile, and hydropolitics), the Sahara and Sahel (salt mines, climate change, drought, and wather resources), and natural resources and their role in

Going around in circles!: around and about a geometric figure
Geometry can be an exercise arena for strengthening those logic muscles that middle school students need to flex. When we work with a geometric figure—a circle, for instance—and apply the ancient tools of compass and straightedge, geometry can become a rich ground for developing design. And a circle has size, so a unit on this topic necessarily brings in the mathematics of its measurement. Circles, then, is a geometric topic that can provide mental challenge, opportunity for artistic develop

Essential Science for Teachers: Physical Science: Session 2. The Particle Nature of Matter: Solids,
In-depth interviews with children that uncover their ideas about the topic at hand.,This segment shows the interviewer trying to probe for whether the student attributes the same macroscopic properties of substances to atoms. He asks if the atoms of aluminum would be bendable and shiny like the foil. The student responds that it's too small to bend and that atoms are colorless but it is not clear that the student knows that the properties of substances and atoms are different without further pro

Learning and teaching with educational technologies.
This chapter considers what we have learned about learning and teaching with educational technologies over the past several decades. While there are compelling data and arguments on the positive effects of these tools, there are also well-documented difficulties with implementing such innovations. The social contexts of the uses of technology are crucial to understanding how technology may influence teaching and learning. The classroom influences, in particular the teacher, are seminal.

While Loops
This learning object seeks to engage the learner through attractive use of visualisation. As the subject is 'repetition' this is illustrated by using repeated actions to move an object across a screen. Redundancy is built in to help weaker students, but this may be bypassed. 'Scaffolding' is used near the end of the object to enable the learner to engage in building the programming construct in a safe supportive environment. This takes the form of building the code by selecting from code fragmen
