Tissues of Life
This Web site from the Science Museum of Minnesota offers a fun and interactive way to learn about the structure and function of the body's tissues. While some activities provided are designed to complement an on-site visit to the Tissues of Life exhibit, the Web site also includes many stand-alone Web-based features. For example, with Explore Body Tissues, students can take a look at cross-sections of actual human bodies, browse through a gallery of scar photos (and perhaps add a photo of their
Learning to Learn: An Introduction to Capillary Electrophoresis
This article describes a problem based learning approach to analytical chemistry labs using capillary electrophoresis as the instrumental method. The on-line link requires a password for The Chemical Educator to get the full article. The article also describes a lab that is an example of problem based learning. Students, playing the role of lab technicians, learn how to use the instrument in order to perform an analysis.
Middle School Portal: Math and Science Pathways (MSP2)
A Dictionary of Units of Measurement was written by Russ Rowlett, the Director of the Center for Mathematics and Science Education at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. This Web site provides information on everything from the Metric System to Viscosity Grades and many other measurement units in between. A simple but very useful site, visitors can find answers to their basic unit measurement questions or just have fun learning about some of the common and somewhat obscure ways we m
The Electronic Statistics Textbook
This electronic textbook on statistics provides both extensive and in depth coverage of statistics. Although an excellent reference for analytical chemistry students and faculty, the lack of chemistry-related practice problems or exercises may not make it an appropriate substitute for a traditional text.
This page presents material from the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga Instructional Excellence Retreat, May 1996, on applying cooperative learning in a classroom setting. It gives a nice, quick, summary of cooperative learning, defining it and establishing rules and techniques. The site is for faculty, but is general and not specifically geared to analytical science.
Breaking away from the math book : creative projects for K-8
This site, developed by two university instructors, offers 37 lesson plans for hands-on learning activities for grades K-8 to reinforce or introduce concepts. Lessons cover a multitude of topics. Several involve constructing containers; these require students to look at the connection between dimensions and volume. For example, the lesson on Capacity has students make several boxes of different dimensions and calculate the capacity of each box. The boxes are then used to measure dry rice. Other
National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science
Compendium of web resources for faculty interested in incorporating problem-based learning and case studies in their courses. Case teaching notes, problem based learning. Article designed for faculty interested in incorportating case discussion in introductory and more advanced courses.
Middle School Portal: Math and Science Pathways (MSP2)
An algebra-based overview of elementary and pre-telescope astronomy. Topics covered include sundials, seasons, calendars, precession, shape and rotation of Earth, Greek astronomy, the path to heliocentric theory and extensive sections on Kepler's laws. It also has sections on the Moon and how its distance was found. Many historical details, stories, and applications are included. This is part of a wider site From Stargazers to Starships which has related lesson plans, glossary, timeline, problem

How to Adopt a Dog
Learn about what you should consider when adopting a pet, and the benefits of adopting different breeds of dogs at different ages. This is a good video to show students about the importance of considering rescuing animals. There is some talk about shelters and buying from pet stores that might be controversial.
Big Dipper Mobile
By building their own Big Dipper mobile, kids learn that the distance between stars is not what it appears to be in this OLogy activity. The activity directions are provided as both a Web page and a printable PDF. The activity begins with a brief overview about how the small size of stars and the close distance between them are illusions. Kids then create a replica of the Big Dipper which realistically shows the relative size and distance of the constellation's stars -- allowing kids to view the
Finding, not searching
You can work smarter, not harder, by determining your searching style, learning more about what your searches return and why, and learning to look in the right place first.
Professor Germaine Greer - An Insight - Full Interview
Warning: Explicit Content Professor Germaine Greer delivered the 2010 Winifred Mercier public lecture at Leeds Met on Tuesday March 23. Born in Melbourne and educated in Australia and at Cambridge University, Professor Greer's first book, The Female Eunuch (1969), took the world by storm and remains one of the most influential texts of the feminist movement. She has had a distinguished academic career in Britain and the USA and makes regular appearances in print and other media as a broadcast

The Arthur and Lynne case study
Editors note: We apologise for the poor sound quality of this podcast. This event will explore the role of universities in driving the sustainability agenda. Tony Juniper is a campaigner, writer, and a senior associate with the Cambridge University Programme for Sustainability Leadership. Professor Janet Hartley is Pro-director for teaching and learning at LSE.
The research literature on cognitive processes relevant to teaching and learning is vast and fascinating. The purpose of this course is to introduce some of the many theories of learning and related topics useful to the design of instruction and to teaching practice.
