Male Stag Beetles Fighting for Female
This short video gives excellent real life, close up footage of two male Stag Beetles fighting for a female. The stag beetle (Lucanus cervus) is arguably the most spectacular looking beetle in Britain; the male looks like something from a prehistoric age. The giant antler-like mandiblesare used in courtship displays, and wrestling with other males. Although rather fearsome in appearance, the mandibles cannot be closed with any force. You are more likely to be nipped sharply b
Automata, Computability, and Complexity, Spring 2011
This course provides a challenging introduction to some of the central ideas of theoretical computer science. Beginning in antiquity, the course will progress through finite automata, circuits and decision trees, Turing machines and computability, efficient algorithms and reducibility, the P versus NP problem, NP-completeness, the power of randomness, cryptography and one-way functions, computational learning theory, and quantum computing. It examines the classes of problems that can and cannot

Is the atom fundamental?
Students are introduced to the idea of classifying atoms into families according to their chemical properties. On this page of a tutorial on particle physics, students discover that these atoms are made out of even smaller particles. Students compare a model of an atom from the year 1900 with a modern view of an atom. Experimentation shows that these atoms have a small, dense nucleus with a positive charge surrounded by a negative cloud of electrons. Students are presented with a riddle asking w
Greenland Shark--An Overview
This short video gives excellent real life, close up footage of a Greenland Shark swimming in its natural habitat. Amongst the world’s largest sharks, the Greenland shark is an elusive species of dogfish that inhabits the icy waters of the Arctic and the northern Atlantic.
