All Kinds of People - Myself
Four activities that encourage children to explore and experiment with most of the materials and techniques recommended in the revised curriculum.
Technology Enhanced Learning in Mathematics: the cross-experimentation approach adopted by the TELMA
This contribution deals with the work of TELMA, a European Research Team of the Kaleidoscope Network of Excellence. In particular the "cross-experimentation" project is presented. Such project was developed by TELMA to understand the role played by theoretical frameworks in setting up experiments using Interactive Learning Environments (ILE) for mathematics. The paper focuses on the methodological dimension of this project.
Come On Over Rover
Have you ever wondered why it takes such a long period of time for NASA to build space exploration equipment? What is involved in manufacturing and building a rover for the Red Planet? During this lesson, students will discover the journey that a Mars rover embarks upon after being designed by engineers and before being prepared for launch. Students will investigate the fabrication techniques, tolerance concepts, assembly and field-testing associated with a Mars exploratory rover.
A Robot in Kindergarten
These thought are the result of work in progress, started in 1999, within the scope of the Trás-os-Montes Digital/SCETAD, project (sub-project: ICEI – Computers in Early Childhood Education Contexts). The work took place in Portuguese kindergarten rooms, with children aged 3, 4, 5 and 6. The ICEI sub-project aims to promote the use of ICT in a playful but pedagogical way, be it free or directed. This use is intended to occur within the scope of activities developed for the micro-spaces of the
Is That Legal? A Case of Acid Rain
The goal of this activity is to understand how techniques of persuasion (including background, supporting evidence, storytelling and the call to action) are used to develop an argument for or against a topic. Students develop an environmental case study for presentation and understand how a case study is used as an analysis tool.
Students learn basic marketing concepts and use professional marketing techniques to compose an advertisement for a hybrid vehicle. In the process, they learn the principles of comparative analysis.

Keeping the Air Clean
This item presents information about alternative sources of energy, using industrial control techniques, and the role of tress and oceans in keeping the air clean. Includes great graphics.
Digital Storytelling in the Classroom and Beyond
This workshop explores how contemporary technology tools empower students and teachers to engage in highly creative and reflective tasks to organize and present information, and express emotions, ideas and knowledge through multimedia creations known as digital stories. Digital storytelling is increasingly becoming popular in schools all over the world as an engaging technology-based learning strategy. In this workshop, the participants will be exposed to powerful user-friendly and cost-free tec
Overview of Computational Nanoscience
This course will provide students with the fundamentals of computational problem-solving techniques that are used to understand and predict properties of nanoscale systems. Emphasis will be placed on how to use simulations effectively, intelligently, and cohesively to predict properties that occur at the nanoscale for real systems. The course is designed to present a broad overview of computational nanoscience and is therefore suitable for both experimental and theoretical researchers. While som

Case Studies in Science Education: RaquelGrade 7
Raquel, a seventh-grade teacher, is increasing the involvement of girls and students of color in science.,Although the content of this case study is beyond the benchmarks and standards, (the movement of sunspots as an indicator of the rotation of the sun), the teacher was using inclusive classroom strategies to encourage the participation of women and minorities in science. Students may benefit from opportunities in which they are allowed to express their ideas in different ways-e.g., in oral o
Statics is a sophomore level engineering course, offered in all mechanical and civil engineering programs. Statics forms the essential pre-requisite to a number of follow-on courses, such as dynamics and mechanics of materials, and lays the foundation for design of mechanical systems. In most institutions, Statics is taught in a traditional way with an emphasis on the mathematical operations that are useful in its implementation, but without enough emphasis on modeling the interactions between r
A Field Trip for Applied biology: Mark-Recapture of White-footed Mice in a Local Woodlot
Mark-recapture techniques were used to determine the size of a white-footed mouse (Peromyscus leucopus) population in a woodlot in Bowling Green, Ohio. Sherman live traps were used to capture the mice, which were then marked by attaching an ear tag. Population size estimates were obtained using a Lincoln-Peterson method, and a Jolly method.
Strategic Environmental Assessment (SEA)
Welcome to the course module on strategic environmental assessment (SEA) - a learning resource that explains SEA theory, practice and methodology. The course covers SEA principles; SEA status worldwide; links between SEA, environmental impact assessment, and strategic decision-making; and a wide range of SEA tools and techniques, and their advantages and disadvantages in various settings. The course is divided into: Background, Strategic actions, SEA Process, Baseline Assessment, Implementation,
The package was written in 1996. Radio immuno assay (RIA) is a technique for measuring concentrations of antigens. Although better techniques have subsequently been developed from it, understanding RIA forms the basis for understanding these derivatives. RIA belongs to the family of competition assays which are widely used in science, medicine and related industries to measure the concentrations of biologically active molecules. This package introduces the concepts of RIA and will be useful to a
SP.713 Recreate Experiments from History: Inform the Future from the Past: Galileo (MIT)
2010 marks the 400th anniversary of Galileo's astonishing sightings of features on the moon, stars, and moons around Jupiter that no one had seen before. Recreate these new ways of seeing and exploring from the materials and techniques Galileo had on hand, while you reflect on the times and works of Galileo. What was it like to improvise new ways of seeing and exploring from the materials and techniques on hand? What do we notice? What surprises us? How can we relate to past experience and ideas
Developing and Utilizing your Teaching Portfolio
Any teacher can greatly benefit from a well put together portfolio. This portfolio can aid in job entry and placement. It can also provide a method for self reflection and performance evaluation. This course will provide a means to a well organized product and provide the teacher with various options on how to prepare and present the portfolio.
Conflict resolution: Using standards
The message of this unit is that there are certain techniques available that can make it easier to develop agreements: one of them is using standards.
Communication Systems I
The first portion of the class will cover topics in analog communication. Beginning with basic Fourier transform properties, techniques for analog modulation and demodulation will be developed. Insights to these problems will be uncovered along the way. The majority of this course will be devoted digital communication.
