Sliders (for High School)
In this hands-on activity, students learn about two types of friction static and kinetic and the equation that governs them. They also measure the coefficient of static friction and the coefficient of kinetic friction experimentally.
Students examine collisions between two skateboards with different masses to learn about conservation of momentum in collisions.
3.5.1 IPv4 Addresses The allocation of addresses on the Internet is controlled by the Internet Assigned Numbers Authority (IANA), although authority is delegated to several local registries. IPv4 addresses may be interpreted in two ways. Initially, they were divided into distinct ranges of addresses called classes, but this proved to be inflexible and now a more flexible scheme, called classless addressing, dominates IPv4 internetworks. I shall describe both ways of interpreting IPv4 addresses because the limitat

Lock and Key Hypothesis
Introducing the "lock and key" analogy of drug-receptor interaction, whereby only drugs of a certain molecular shape will 'fit' with a cell membrane receptor.
Live like an Animal
In this activity, students design an innovative human shelter that is inspired and informed by an animal structure. Each group is assigned an animal class, and they gather information about shelters used by the animals in that class. After researching the topic and brainstorming ideas, students build small prototypes (models) of the structures. Finally, they present their products, explaining what attribute of the animal structure influenced their design.
2.11 Further exercises
Number systems and the rules for combining numbers can be daunting. This unit will help you to understand the detail of rational and real numbers, complex numbers and integers. You will also be introduced to modular arithmetic and the concept of a relation between elements of a set.
4.1 Scientific approaches
Hibernation is an ingenious adaptation that some animals employ to survive difficult conditions in winter. This unit examines the differences between hibernation and torpor, and discusses the characteristic signs of hibernation behaviour. It explores the triggers that bring on hibernation, and whether internal signals or external season cues are predominant. It also examines the physiological adaptations that occur in hibernating animals. This unit builds on and develops ideas introduced in the
Pathway 2 Information: Citing References
The citing and referencing module is part of a wider online tutorial designed to teach a range of information skills to undergraduate students. The module aims to provide an introductory guide to why referencing and citing is important and how to reference particular types of material according to different referencing styles. This skill is required by students throughout their degree courses and backs up more traditional face-to-face teaching in this area. The module uses an interactive approa
The effect of hunger on children and graphing
Following are a series of activities in which students apply various math skills to better understand the problems of world hunger and what steps are being taken to reduce the number of people without enough to eat. This activity examines the effect of hunger on children and the connection with child mortality, which is another MDG Hunger Target: Halve, between 1990 and 2015, the proportion of people who suffer from hunger. Child Mortality Target: Reduce by two-thirds, between 1990 and 2015, the
Quantitative Skills Assessment of Geoscience Courses
The importance of quantitative skills in earth science education is the primary subject addressed by this website. This website is not a quantitative course, however this document does provide numerous useful techniques that can be employed in a variety of other coursework to advance the quantitative skills of the student. The first section of this website presents a checklist that can be used to develop exercises which will focus on specific quantitative applications and evaluations. Skills add
Seasonal Migrations: Bald Eagle
Students join a biologist who uses satellite telemetry to track bald eagles back to their nests in Canada. They participate in an online contest and predict the location of each eagle's nest. Through these interrelated investigations, students discover that sunlight drives all living systems and they learn about the dynamic ecosystem that surrounds and connects them. Children follow the migrations of animals. They observe, research, and report their findings, and watch journeys progress on real-

Why critique research?
Why published research needs to be appraised by readers.
Tissue Fluid Formation
This RLO describes the distribution of fluids within the body and describes the forces involved in the circulation of fluids between the capillary and tissue compartments.
Ingeniería del Software II (2011)
Los objetivos generales de la asignatura son: a. Continuar la asignatura de Ingeniería del Software I, explicando elementos de la Ingeniería de Sistemas Software que por razones de tiempo no pudieron abordarse en Ingeniería del Software I, tales como Pruebas de Sistemas Software o Control de la Calidad. b.

Simon Says Big Amplitude, Small Wavelength!
In this activity, students play the game Simon Says to make the amplitudes and wavelengths defined by the teacher. First they play alone, and then they play with a partner using a piece of rope.
