1.2 What is health?
Why are so many people now turning to complementary and alternative medicine and why do approaches to complementary and alternative medicine (CAM) raise such controversy? This unit explores the following three key areas: ‘Why people use complementary and alternative medicine’, ‘Critical issues in the therapeutic relationship’ and ‘Ethics in complementary and alternative medicine’.
1.2 Aims of the unit
Ever wondered how a computer processes data into information? This unit will help you to understand the distinction between the two and examines how a computer-based society impacts on daily life. You will learn what computers can do with data to produce information and how computers can be used to work with data and search for it, control machines, and support commercial operations.

"The X in Sex: A Genetic, Medical, and Evolutionary View of the X Chromosome, Fall 2009"
" This course will explore a diverse collection of striking biological phenomena associated with the X chromosome. We will examine the genetic basis and significance of several X-linked mutations. We will also discuss why men are more likely than women to display X-linked traits. We will look at the different mechanisms by which X chromosome gene expression is equalized in mammals, flies, and worms and how these mechanisms can yield unusual phenotypes. Throughout our discussions of the X chromos
Spectroscopy of Rocks and Minerals, and Principles of Spectroscopy
This is a chapter on spectroscopy from The Manual of Remote Sensing, Volume 3, Remote Sensing for the Earth Sciences. Topics in the chapter include an overview of spectroscopy, the reflection and absorption process, causes of absorption, spectra of miscellaneous minerals and materials, the sensitivity of absorption bands to crystal structure and chemistry and the scattering process. The chapter also covers quantitative understanding in terms of radiative transfer theory and spectral libraries. T

The Scientific Method: An Introduction Using Reaction Time
Reaction time has many advantages for the introduction of the scientific method--the subject is familiar, many experiments are possible, and students enjoy competition. In our Introductory Biology courses, our students formulate and test a hypothesis about reaction time. We use Kosinski's Reaction Time software, that records reaction times and then analyzes them statistically using the chi-square median test. Students then write a paper that either rejects or fails to reject their null hypothesi
