Distance learning material
The materials provided are taken from three postgraduate modules which students study as part of the School's distance learning MA degree programmes in 'Literary Linguistics', 'Applied Linguistics, Applied Linguistics and English Language Teaching' and 'Modern English Language'. Our courses generally consist of 10 units which cover the key areas of study within particular disciplines, in conjunction with material documenting the latest developments within each field. The 'Descriptive Lingu
Let Your Ears do the Walking
In the previous lesson, students learned about the issue of by-catching by fisheries and how it affects marine habitats. Dolphins are one of the main species affected by by-catching Dolphins use echolocation to identify the location of objects in the water, but they have difficulty identifying nets, and thus can be caught accidentally. Students will learn how echolocation works, why certain animals use it to determine the size, shape, and distance of objects, and how humans can potentially take
Wingra Marsh: A Purple Population Problem
This case study is part of the Starting Point module. The activity requires students to author a presentation to the Grounds Management Committee of their school. Students must give their recommendation for the control of the invasive species purple loosestrife (Lythrum salicaria) on the Edgewood College campus. Users can find a variety of information related to this case study including learning goals, teaching tips, notes and materials, assessment ideas, references, a context for use and a lis
Exploring the Moon
This is a teacher's guide for learning about lunar geology and regolith (loose material on the moon's surface), distance to the moon, Apollo landing sites, and life support systems. Lessons focus on calculating the distance between scale models of earth and the moon, designing a spacecraft for travel to and from the moon, the locations and geology of the six Apollo landing sites, and calculating the diameter of the moon using proportions.
Redes Inalámbricas en los Países en Desarrollo (Segunda edición en español)
The book is intended to be a comprehensive resource for technologists in the developing world, providing the information that they need to build real networks. By bringing this knowledge to the outer edges of the Internet, we hope to help jumpstart the construction of vital network infrastructure. Besides the topics included in the first edition, covering from basic radio physics and network design to equipment and troubleshooting, the second edition includes a new chapter dedicated to Voice ove
Solar System Scavenger Hunt
This OLogy activity gives kids a grounded way to understand the scale of the planets in our solar system. The activity begins with a brief overview that tell them why all planets are round and introduces them to the concept that the planets vary widely in size. Kids are then asked to create a model of the solar system using found objects that match the provided scale in inches for the planets. The activity ends with a series of challenges, which include arranging the planets according to size an
Driving Through Geologic Time - An analogy
This activity uses an analogy to illustrate the scale of geologic time and our limited view of the Earth's history. It relates the history of the Earth to a drive across the country. The drive is 4560 km (rough distance between Washington D.C. and Seattle), with 1 km equaling one million years of Earth's history. This analogy is used by the author as a springboard to talk about the limits of our personal perceptions and experiences when making conclusions. Learning goals, context for use, teachi
Molecular Dynamics Model
The EJS Molecular Dynamics model is constructed using the Lennard-Jones potential truncated at a distance of 3 molecular diameters. The motion of the molecules is governed by Newton's laws, approximated using the Verlet algorithm with the indicated time step. For sufficiently small time steps dt, the system's total energy should be approximately conserved.
Open Creative Nonfiction Writing
This course concerns the writing of creative nonfiction, which involves the writing of true life events in creative form. Creativity comes into play with the style or manner in which the writer relates her story to the reader. Facts are raw, but also contextual. In creative nonfiction, context is perspective; and perspective is what makes a story interesting. Essentially, creative nonfiction is very similar (and some might even say nearly the same) to fiction; the main difference is whether the
This animation represents the case of frictionless motion of an object that experiences a centripetal force. More specifically, the strength of the centripetal force is proportional to the distance to the central axis of rotation. A proportional centripetal force is very symmetrical and the motion under the influence of that force has distinctive properties.
Dib Lane Widening
30th November 1927. Taken during the widening scheme this view shows a yard off the dirt road. It contains a large collection of wooden sheds of various designs and states of repair. The yard is enclosed by a wooden fence. In the background are several large, mature trees.

HIV 1 Tech Paper Presentation 1/4
Grund et al., 2008: paper presented by HIV 1 team in 20.380, Spring 2011
Barry Hoonan and his fifth- and sixth-grade cluster explore ways in which individual readers can help themselves enter the story world of a text. The group explores two different methods—using sticky notes in several different ways and mapping—which lead its members directly into the text. The text they have chosen for their attention, Stuck in Neutral by Terry Trueman, features a 14-year-old protagonist who suffers from cerebral palsy
Mind Mapping - Raw Materials
Raw Materials for a learning activity that introduces the application of mind mapping to enhance the organisation of ideas and improve memory.
Chester City Walls AA98_04500 CHESTER CITY WALLS, Cheshire. The medieval city wall of Chester is the most complete in England. The walls date mostly from the 13th-century, though they are much repaired. Here a flight of 18th-century steps leads down from the wall to the River Dee. Photographed by Eric de Mare (active 1945-80).
