Semi-Riemann Geometry and General Relativity
This book represents course notes for a one semester course at the undergraduate level giving an introduction to Riemannian geometry and its principal physical application, Einstein’s theory of general relativity. The background assumed is a good grounding in linear algebra and in advanced calculus, preferably in the language of differential forms. This book covers the following topics: The principal curvatures; rules of calculus; Levi-Civita Connections; bundle of frames; connections on prin

Piecing It All Together
In this OLogy activity, kids learn why pottery is such a common and useful find during archaeological digs and then create their own pottery ruins. The activity begins with an overview that discusses the types of objects that are typically found during excavations, why pottery is a common discovery, and its various uses throughout history. Students are then given step-by-step illustrated directions for decorating a flowerpot, turning it into ruins, and then piecing it back together. The activity

Strong as the Weakest Link
To introduce the two types of stress that materials undergo compression and tension students examine compressive and tensile forces and learn about bridges and skyscrapers. They construct their own building structure using marshmallows and spaghetti to see which structure can hold the most weight. In an associated literacy activity, students explore the psychological concepts of stress and stress management, and complete a writing activity.

Building-Stone Geology
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

Problem Structuring in Architectural Design
The purpose of this research is to describe in operational terms the process of problem structuring while solving spatial problems in architectural design. The designer's behavior is described in terms of problem structuring, when problem parameters are established or transformed, and in terms of problem solving when these parameters are satisfied in a design solution. As opposed to problem solving, the structuring of problems is an under-studied but crucial aspect of complex tasks such as desig
