Wildlife Management Activity Guide for Teachers
Whether your school has a 40 acre school forest or a 40 square foot school yard lawn, we urge you to get your students involved in some hands-on wildlife management. It is a relevant real world issue that will also expose them to disciplines other than science as they learn all the complexities of land management. A few teachers are teaching about a variety of game species and habitats. Others are developing small native plant gardens which provide basic needs for native butterflies and birds. P
Astronaut Mike Hopkins: Workout in Space 2
Astronaut Mike Hopkins, a lifelong athlete, worked closely with his strength and conditioning coach Mark Guilliams to develop these specially-designed workouts in orbit. Shown here, Hopkins is using the COLBERT treadmill and the Advanced Resistive Exercise Device to perform this challenging workout. (400 meter run and 20 minutes of pull-ups.)
A Deeper Look Into Seeds
Developed for second grade. Students will: use their sense of touch and sight to discover differences between several types of seeds; discuss why seeds come in different shapes and sizes; make connections between art and science; discuss the growth process of a seed; discuss how different seeds are used in different products. Biology In Elementary Schools is a Saint Michael's College student project. The teaching ideas on this page have been found, refined, and developed by students in a colleg

Frightened of the internet? This unit will help you make effective use of the internet, giving you the basic skills required for using web-based resources. Useful tricks and tips are provided as well as information on web browsers, the main features of a browser window, how to look at websites, using hyperlinks, searching for information on the internet, copying text, avoiding computer viruses, and using PDFs.
Processes of Research and Engagement , Spring 2007
In this course, students identify issues in educational or other professional settings on which to focus their critical and creative thinking skills. Each student works through the different stages of research and action - from defining a manageable project to communicating findings and plans for further work. Supervision is provided when the student's research centers on new teaching practices, workshops in the community, or volunteer. The classes run as workshops in which students are introduc

Creative enterprise in west Yorkshire Arts organisations
This report describes and theorises the findings of a workshop discussion, commissioned by WYLLN, into the views of arts organizations on the challenges they face in becoming more enterprising and less grant dependent.
Introduction to stress and strain: document transcript
This is a document transcript about Introduction to Stress and Strain HNC in Engineering - Mechanical Science Edexcel Unit: Engineering Science (NQF L4). This section provides an introduction to the concepts of direct and shear stress and strain as encountered in mechanical engineering structures. The standard notation is explained; Young’s modulus is introduced and explained with worked examples. Factors of safety are examined and some sample calculations are included. Some simple examples of
Data Quality: Missing Data - Phone
This module describes how missing data can be managed while maintaining data quality. It explains how to plan for missing data; defines different types of "missingness;" outlines the benefits of documenting missing data and illustrates how to document missing data; and describes procedures to minimize missing data. Upon completion of this module, students will be able to explain why data managers should strive to minimize missing data and develop a plan to record or code why data are missing.
Receive and convey messages - Communicate with other people
An introduction to communication skills required by lab technicians working in scientific and medical testing laboratories. Covers receiving and conveying oral and written messages effectively.
Introduction to torsion : document transcript
This is a document transcript about Introduction to Torsion HNC in Engineering - Mechanical Science Edexcel Unit: Engineering Science (NQF L4). Torsion or twisting is a common concept in mechanical engineering systems. This section looks at the basic theory associated with torsion and examines some typical examples by calculating the main parameters. Further examples include determination of the torque and power requirements of torsional systems. This open educational resource was released th
Particle technology : centrifugal separation
This is a video of the seventh lecture in the module Particle Technology, delivered to second year students who have already studied basic fluid mechanics. Centrifugal Separation covers both sedimenting and filtering centrifuges as well as hydrocyclones. Adaptation of the gravity settling and conventional filtration models, to account for the conceptual centrifugal acceleration, is included. Examples of industrial equipment for centrifugal separation are included. This material is suitable fo
RF Engineering : past exam questions: level 3 part 3
This resource (B364 RF Engineering Level 3 Part 3) contains past examination questions from the Department of Electronic and Computer Engineering at the University of Portsmouth. This unit takes a top-level systems approach to selected examples of microwave system, e.g. radar, remote sensing. The syllabus also includes invited (and assessed) lectures from an industrial expert on the topic of EMC/EMI. This open educational resource was released through the Higher Education Academy Engineeri

Technical report writing workshop handout
This is a handout to accompany a powerpoint presentation for a technical report writing workshop for engineering students. The resource is part of a workshop programme on 'Key Skills for Engineering Undergraduates'. This open educational resource was released through the Higher Education Academy Engineering Subject Centre Open Engineering Resources Pilot project. The project was funded by HEFCE and the JISC/HE Academy UKOER programme.
Document skills : maps and plans
As a specialist medium, maps and plans can be a challenge to use and it is not always immediately obvious just what can be learned from them. This resource demonstrates how the researcher can use these documents to gain varied insights about a particular place and aspects of its history. The resource includes a glossary and bibliography. Illustrative images of items from our collections appear throughout.
German stage 2 semester A
This module is aimed post GCSE students in semester A and addresses common grammatical problems areas. The grammar exercises are also supported by audio, so that the pronunciation is underlined and listening skills are practiced. The transcript reader of the listening exercises allows students to identify words/passages they find difficult to understand.
