16.07 Dynamics (MIT)
This course covers the fundamentals of Newtonian mechanics, including kinematics, motion relative to accelerated reference frames, work and energy, impulse and momentum, 2D and 3D rigid body dynamics. The course pays special attention to applications in aerospace engineering including introductory topics in orbital mechanics, flight dynamics, inertial navigation and attitude dynamics. By the end of the semester, students should be able to construct idealized (particle and rigid body) dynamical m
Technisch wiskundigen lossen problemen op door er modellen van te maken en daar dan aan te rekenen. Ze houden zich bijvoorbeeld bezig met de optimalisatie van zoekmachines, dienstregelingen, klimaatmodellen en navigatiesystemen, maar ook met de financiële wereld en met risicoanalyse. Technische wiskunde is sterk gericht op de toepassing van wiskunde in de praktijk. Dat leidt tot antwoorden op vragen als: Hoe bereken je de kans op besmetting met een virus via bloedtransfusie? Hoe kun je effici
Quadratic Equations: Solving Quadratic Equations
This module contains the a quadratic equations from Elementary Algebra by Denny Burzynski and Wade Ellis, Jr.
The esophagus is the pipe-like structure that connects the mouth to the stomach. When we swallow our food, the food moves through the esophagus. The esophagus is located inside our bodies at the neck and chest.
Bend, Twist and Break: Beyond the Laboratory
Dr. Chris Muhlstein explains that when scientists study fracture surfaces from controlled experiments to understand the resulting shapes and features, they can use their understanding to deduce what happened when they were not around to see the material fail or break. Further they can predict what will have to a larger or smaller piece of material under stress. This process is how scientists and engineers translate a lab experiment into a design for an airplane, bridge or even a bike frame.
Tonsillectomy and Adenoidectomy

Lincoln's Emancipation Proclamation and the Civil War
This three minute video helps to show how the North thought it would be a short war. The first was the Battle of Full Run; It resulted in huge losses on both sides. It was anything but quick. Lincoln introduced the Emancipation Proclamation, which banned slavery in the Confederate states and changed the rationale for the war. A good overview.
Getting Dirty on Mars
Getting Dirty on Mars is a fun and interactive way to introduce students to the basics of soil science. Based on NASA's Phoenix Mars Lander, students will simulate what it is like to collect soil samples just like the Phoenix. By measuring for themselves many of the properties scientists use to characterize soil samples, students will be better prepared to interpret those properties as used in actual applications.
WMAP: The First Detailed Full Sky Picture of the Oldest Light in the Universe
This site allows users to study maps and read a description about the Wilkinson Microwave Anisotropy Probe (WMAP), which has made a new determination of the age of the universe and collected data on the oldest light in the universe, microwave "light" captured from 379,000 years after the Big Bang.

There is a lot of talk these days about corporate social responsibility and ethical supply chains. But monitoring the entire supply chain, especially in China's domestic market is almost impossible. In the neighborhood surrounding labor organizer Zhang Zhiru's office in Shenzhen's Bao'an district, every second building seems to host a "black factory"—a small illegal workshop where migrant workers punch out individual components of larger products. The shops in this neighborhood specialize in t

Through numerous lessons and hands-on activities, students are introduced to the concept of an environment and the interactions within it. As they learn about natural and manmade environments, and renewable and non-renewable natural resources, they see how people use our natural resources and the many environmental issues in our world today. Students learn about solid waste and disposal, and its effects on our environment. They learn the importance of the concepts of reduce, reuse, recycle and c
Daniel Hutzell had been a diabetic for over 40 years, which led to a number of complications including circulatory issues.
