Adaptive learning scenarios for detection of misconceptions about electricity and remediation
Our main objective is to model the knowledge used by learners in order to solve problems about electricity. We are searching means to do a diagnosis about student's activity based on a microworld of electric circuits. Once the diagnosis realized, we try to provide the learner with the most relevant remediation with regard to his/her misconceptions.

Double Cone and Plane
A double cone is placed on the bars of an inclined plane. Instead of rolling down the plane the cone rolls up. Although the plane slants upward, the bars diverge so that the rotational axis of the cone, which passes through the center of mass, actually moves downward.

Believing Cassandra: how to be an optimist in a pessimist's world
Coinciding with the reprint of Alan’s classic book, this event will look at how to build a bridge over the sea of despair, and show how to catch the wave to an enticing, sustainable future. Alan will discuss the pioneers who created the ideas, techniques and practices of sustainable living - the people who prove Cassandra's warnings wrong, by believing in them, and taking strategic action. Alan AtKisson is president and CEO of The AtKisson Group, an international sustainability consultancy to
Pre Algebra Dividing Decimals
In this lesson, students learn to divide a decimal by a decimal by first
multiplying both decimals by the power of 10 that changes the second
decimal to a whole number. For example, to divide 0.16 by 0.8, first
multiply both decimals by 10, to get 1.6 8. Next, divide the decimal by
the whole number in the same way that one would divide a whole number by
a whole number (using long division). However, at the end of the
problem, the decimal point is brought s

Texas Tech Researcher Documents New Arachnid
Texas Tech researcher James Cokendolpher, a research scientist and assistant curator of invertebrates at The Museum of Texas Tech University, is investigating a newly discovered arachnid. Parobisium yosemite was discovered a couple of years ago in a cave in Yosemite National Park. This cave-dewlling species is considered unique because it is able to live in granite rockfalls instead of limestone caves where most other species live.
Producci?n Digital de un Auditorio (Digital Production of an Auditorium)
In the middle of the year 2001, we had the opportunity to project an Auditory in the particular building of our School of Architecture. The chance to produce the entire project an all the technical documentation was given; using only digital tools. The use of this tools let us to calculate illumination, isolation study, sound an thermical conditioning with a real time visualization of the three dimensional model.
Hacia una RV de Representaci?n Hiperrealista (Towards a VR of Hyper-realistic Representation)
The objetive of the proyect is the hiperrealistic simulation of scenarios on standard PCs. We use the same tools that are used by the entertainment industry (3d graphics engines) to get the highest level of realism possible in 3d worlds. By now, we are exploring only the audio and visual areas. The potencial of this 3d enviorments construction tools let us to create exploration enviorments for academic and professional implementation like commerce, tourism, education, communication, etc.
Image and Shape: Two Distinct Approaches
This paper is the result of two researches done at the district of Campeche, Florian?polis, by the Grupo PET/ARQ/UFSC/CAPES. Different aspects and conceptual approaches were used to study the spatial attributes of this district located in the Southern part of Santa Catarina Island. The readings and analysis of two researches were based on graphic pistures builded with the use of Corel 7.0 e AutoCadR14. The first research ?

CAD Interfaces to the ARROW Manufactured Product Server
The UK national project ARROW (Advanced Reusable Reliable Objects Warehouse) provides an Internet based framework through which it is possible to identify any of a range of manufactured products meeting specific design criteria. This open framework (based upon the IAI's IFCs) provides a mechanism for users to search for products from any participating manufacturer or supplier based both on specific attributes of a product or on any of the textual descriptions of the product. The service returns

Laboratory Techniques - Subculture: Broth to Broth
Microbiology is the study of microscopic organisms, which are usually maintained in culture. Pure cultures of microbes are crucial to the success of studies in this area. Good, repeatable results must rely on good aseptic technique being used at all times, and on the correct use of related techniques.
