Koch and Sierpinski Fractals - A Virtual Manipulative
The Koch Snowflake is obtained by beginning with an equilateral triangle, removing the middle third of each side, and replacing it with two sides of a smaller triangle. This process continues forever.
The Sierpinski Carpet is constructed by starting with a square, removing the middle ninth, removing the middle ninth of each remaining square, and continuing.
There are more instructions to the right of the manipulative.
12:12 (short film)
Synopsis; They say that 11:11 is the time to make a wish. If that is so, what would be special about 12:12..? This short film shows the weird, odd and unusual events that happen to a young man when the clock strikes 12:12. Enjoy!
VideoInformation; This is my first major attempt at creating a creepy type of film, and I hope the video does give out a weird feeling. You'll probably never look at the time of 12:12 the same way again. I hope you like it!

Depiction of terrorism in film and television

This sample shows the typical structure of silal, irons with high Si content (5.5-7.9 wt%). It is a grey cast iron alloyed with 4-6wt% Si to provide good oxidation resistance. The high Si content forms a dense, adherent iron silicate surface film, which is resistant to oxygen penetration. The flake graphite iron Silal was one of the first heat resisting cast irons developed. Spheroidal graphite Si irons have higher strength and improved ductility. The structure shows cored dendrites of ferrite w

Ordered film of carbon nanotubes
It is necessary to form a stable dispersion of nanotubes in order to properly integrate them into polymeric systems. This can be achieved by treating them with acid to oxidise the tube surfaces. The tubes will then spontaneously disperse in an aqueous medium. The viscosity of these suspensions is analogous to that of polymers; it increases gradually with concentration up to a critical point (at about 0.7vol%) where entanglement occurs. A solid nanotube film has been formed by filtering the suspe

The lecturer took the role of a partner in the firm and the students played the role of lawyers within it. At the end of the simulation the students had to submit a report on what they had done.

At the same time, the supposed ‘threat’ of international terrorism and continuing financial turmoil in the world economy have both brought to the fore the global politics of co-operation and confrontation. Whilst it might be possible to agree on the significance of th
Visual Anthropology CSAPOER
This module is concerned with how anthropology can contribute to - and gain insight from - the analysis of visual forms of representation; it is an introduction to anthropology through an examination of the ‘ways of seeing’ across-cultures and to the methods used for gathering information about other cultures’ ‘visual systems’. The module introduces how different cultures are depicted in a range of media, in particular ethnographic film and photography, and deals with the analytical an
