4.2 Knowing mathematics How much mathematics do you think you know? You may feel that you know quite a lot, or that you are ‘out of practice’ and have forgotten much of it; or perhaps you were never very secure in your mathematical knowledge and feel that you did not achieve complete understanding. Primary teachers are expected to have a confident knowledge of mathematics. You are not expected to reach such a level for this unit, but you do need to know a fair amount. All the mathematics that children go on

Topic Writing In French
Overview of one teacher's approach to topic writing for Leaving Cert. It looks at a mixture of reading comprehension, oral work and written exercises, and has been tested in the classroom with good success.
The Cockroach Beatbox
By dissecting a cockroach ... yes, live on stage ... TED Fellow and
neuroscientist Greg Gage shows how brains receive and deliver electric impulses -- and how legs can respond. (Launching a series on Awesome Nature) "The Cockroach Beatbox" was animated by the TED-Ed Animation Team (Jeremiah Dickey, Biljana Labovic, Celeste Lai, Kari Mulholland and Franz Palomares). (06:15)
Las selvas tropicales de Costa Rica - los perezosos, los colibríes (parte 2 de 4)
Aquí las relaciones entre plantas y animales son muy intensas. Se cree que sólo en torno a una simple flor pueden vivir cerca de 20 especies de animales distintos. 4:33

Following the Flow - Partners Video Magazine
Researchers are discovering how nano-scale tracers can uncover the sources of pollution in America's farm fields and waters. Following the Flow is a segment from Partners Video Magazine's latest episode, The Science of Small. To view the entire episode visit: http://www.csrees.usda.gov/newsroom/partners/partners.html
Who Are the Plants?
This online article, from Biodiversity Counts, offers a brief overview of the plant kingdom. Specifically, it covers: why plants have their own kingdom, Plantae; what separates the kingdom's two very basic categories; the plant kingdom's 10 divisions, including the number of species in each; and why some organisms that seem like plants belong instead to the kingdom Protista or the kingdom Fungi.
Scannability: organizing for the web
How you organize and format your writing can go a long way toward making it readable.
The purpose of this activity is to observe the type and cover of clouds including contrails. Students observe which of ten types of clouds and how many of three types of contrails are visible and how much of the sky is covered by clouds (other than contrails) and how much is covered by contrails. Intended outcomes are that students learn how to make estimates from observations and how to categorize specific clouds following general descriptions for the categories. They will learn the meteorologi
Electrical Conductivity Protocol
The purpose of this resource is to measure the conductivity of water at a freshwater hydrology site. Students calibrate and take electrical conductivity measurements using an electrical conductivity meter. Students estimate the total dissolved solids from the electrical conductivity measurements.
Viscosity of the Mantle: Constraints from Post-glacial Rebound
In this lab, students determine the viscosity of a relatively viscous fluid by measuring the rate of rebound of a partially submerged object following a rapid decrease in its mass. This experiment is carried out in the context of an analysis of post-glacial rebound as a measurement of the viscosity of the mantle. Learning goals, context for use, teaching tips, materials, assessment tips and related resources are provided.
Vectors and slope stability
This activity is designed to teach students with little or no experience with vectors, free-body diagrams, or the like to apply vectors to slope stability problems. Students first learn the basic properties of vectors, vector addition, resolving forces, etc. They then apply these techniques to establish in a simplified way how geologists can determine if a slope is stable, how much loading a slope can withstand before it becomes unstable, and other principles of slope stability determination.

La econometría se ha convertido en una herramienta fundamental en el análisis económico. Hace ya casi 90 años Joseph Schumpeter afirmaba que "todo economista, le guste o no, es un económetra, ya que necesita tratar de explicar sus argumentos con cifras" y desde entonces la popularidad de los modelos econométricos se ha ido incrementando gracias al aumento de la información estadística y al desarrollo de software estadístico-econométrico.En la actualidad los modelos econométricos son u
