7.343 Protein Folding, Misfolding and Human Disease (MIT)
This course is one of many Advanced Undergraduate Seminars offered by the Biology Department at MIT. These seminars are tailored for students with an interest in using primary research literature to discuss and learn about current biological research in a highly interactive setting. The instructor for this course, Dr. Kosinski-Collins, is a member of the HHMI Education Group. Maintenance of the complex three-dimensional structure adopted by a protein in the cell is vital for function. Oftentimes
Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Spectroscopy
This website serves as a primer for understanding the fundamentals of NMR spectroscopy. Plenty of useful figures and animations that enhance the understanding of nuclear spin, shielding, and how these phenomena serve as the basis for NMR.
The Generative Multi-Performance Design System
This paper proposes a framework for an integrated computational design system. This design system builds on the strengths inherent in both generative synthesis models and multi-performance analysis and optimization. Four main design mechanisms and their mathematical models are discussed and their integration proposed. The process of building the design system begins by a top-down decomposition of a design concept. The different disciplines involved are decomposed into modules that simulate the r
Comics in the classroom
Graphic novels aren't just "literature lite": they're a genre you can use to explore philosophy, history, human interactions, visual literacy, and more with soon-to-be adults in a high school English class.
Literature Review in Citizenship, Technology and Learning
Taking on both how ICT can be used to support citizenship education and how citizenship education needs to reflect changes in technology use in the workplace and day to day life, this publication summarises both theoretical and empirical research evidence in the field. It examines possible roles for ICT in engendering discussion, as a source of information, as a means of producing materials, and for enabling whole school activities on citizenship.,A NESTA Futurelab Research report - report 3
Technology Enhanced Learning in Mathematics: the cross-experimentation approach adopted by the TELMA
This contribution deals with the work of TELMA, a European Research Team of the Kaleidoscope Network of Excellence. In particular the "cross-experimentation" project is presented. Such project was developed by TELMA to understand the role played by theoretical frameworks in setting up experiments using Interactive Learning Environments (ILE) for mathematics. The paper focuses on the methodological dimension of this project.
Key Ideas in Health Promotion - Rachael Dixey
1 hour video lecture introducing students to module about Health Promotion - key ideas, models, concepts, reading, literature sources
This laboratory activity gives an example of the creativity required when teaching non-native rock types. In order to study igneous and metamorphic rocks in central Florida (a huge area consisting solely of sedimentary rock), geology students examined building stones in downtown St. Petersburg. Each student picked a particular rock type used in a particular way (structure, decorative facade, etc.), performed geologic tests on it, read up on its properties, history, and uses, and prepared a paper

In this episode we'll be meeting the author of a book investigating the North East's involvement with the slave trade, finding out about the life of Sunderland's controversial railway king, and hearing about a unique exhibition exploring the history of mental health in the North East.
Math Activities for Fall (2007)
These activities were designed to introduce or reinforce important math concepts and skills using seasonal themes. This is a natural fit for elementary classrooms where teachers and students celebrate the various holidays with literature and art projects. These activities allow teachers to also incorporate math activities that develop and support important mathematical concepts and skills.
Math Tours: Fractions
Students need many concrete experiences with fractions to develop a deep understanding of the three models of fractions: area, linear and set models. Teachers need to address all three models in well-designed instructional activities so that students develop a rich concept of fractions that they can use to make sense of numbers, operations, measurement and probability. The Math Tours include: activities, problem solving, games, writing to learn, templates, math-literature connections, and web li
Instructional Strategies for Mental Math
These strategies support active student participation in math lessons and allow teachers to assess the developing proficiency levels of all students in the class by walking around to monitor student responses. These strategies are especially effective during the Mental Math part of an Everyday Mathematics lesson.
During the 1950s, this Kansas studio promoted our youth's mental hygiene by producing such films as "The Bully" and "What About Prejudice."
Literature Games: Find the Authors
Play a game and find out about a Nobel Prize awarded discovery or work! Among hundreds of letters, the names of Literature Laureates are hidden. Pick a period and search for the authors mentioned on the list beside the puzzle. The names may be written in all directions. When you've found a name, mark it with the mouse button down.
Transportation Fuels Rock Performances
This activity encourages student creativity and enhances their presentation skills while teaching about conventional and alternative transportation fuels. In this cooperative learning activity, student groups research conventional and alternative fuels and then write and perform their own rock song.
Introduction to New Testament History and Literature
This course provides a historical study of the origins of Christianity by analyzing the literature of the earliest Christian movements in historical context, concentrating on the New Testament. Although theological themes will occupy much of our attention, the course does not attempt a theological appropriation of the New Testament as scripture. Rather, the importance of the New Testament and other early Christian documents as ancient literature and as sources for historical study will be emphas
LIT 331: World Literature II: Africa and the Middle East, Asia, and Europe
