Introduction
Managing eutrophication is a key element in maintaining the earth's biodiversity. Eutrophication is a process mostly associated with human activity whereby ecosystems accumulate minerals. This unit explains how this process occurs, what its effects on different types of habitat are, and how it might be managed.

AlgTop9: Applications of Euler's formula and graphs
We use Euler's formula to show that there are at most 5 Platonic, or regular, solids. We discuss other types of polyhedra, including deltahedra (made of equilateral triangles) and Schafli's generalizations to higher dimensions. In particular in 4 dimensions there is the 120-cell, the 600-cell and the 24-cell. Finally we state a version of Euler's formula valid for planar graphs. This is the ninth lecture in this beginner's course on Algebraic Topology, given by Assoc Prof N J Wildberger at UNSW

Dynamic Generation of Design Plans at the Brief Stage
The traditional approach to design and construction suffers from many limitations. As the technology becomes more available to the average users, the need for an effective and efficient solution has never been greater. This paper introduces an alternative approach to the life cycle of construction projects "application controlled process". Based on this approach, a framework for an Integrated Construction Environment (ICE) has been developed and implemented in a prototype demonstrator "SPACE" (S

Busing for Integration vs. Neighborhood Schools
This lesson plan will introduce students to the political, social, and economic issues surrounding school desegregation using oral histories from those who experienced it firsthand. They will learn about the history of the "separate but equal" U.S. school system, the 1971 Swann case which forced Charlotte-Mecklenburg Schools (CMS) to integrate, and the recent decision to discontinue busing for racial integration in Charlotte-Mecklenburg. They will compare and contrast neighborhood schools with s

What does multimodality mean for English?: creative tensions in teaching new texts and new literacie
The argument for a pedagogy which embraces visual and multimodal representation is well established in academic circles (Kress & Van Leeuwen, 1996; New London Group, 1996; Cope & Kalantzis, 2000) and a plethora of literacies congregate around the ever-expanding subject English as the prime site for innovation and development. This paper will focus on one exploratory case study from the Economic and Social Research Council InterActive Education Project1 to examine how working with multimodal text

Criminal violence in Cambodia: An historical perspective
Empirical studies and theoretical analyses of long-term trends in criminal violence have been done in western countries but rarely in other parts of the world. The research conducted by Professor Broadhurst and Dr Bouhours attempts to fill this gap through an examination of the evolution of criminal violence in Cambodia from the start of the 20th century to the present. However, different sources and methods of criminal data recording were used between 1900 and 2008. The diversity of the sources
