3.1a Working on the key skill of improving own learning and performance

Improving learning and improving your performance may sound simple enough, but experienced learners know that there is not always a direct route from a particular learning experience to improved performance. Many factors can affect this link – motivation, resources, support and feedback. You need to acknowledge that these, and many other factors, can and do influence the outcomes of your efforts. In other words, many influences can come along to knock learning off track. It is also importan

Exercise Physiology: The Response of Metabolic Rate to Physical Activity
In this lab, students measure their heart rate, oxygen consumption, and carbon dioxide production in various physical activities on a treadmill or cycle ergometer. After learning the techniques in the first lab period, each group of 3-4 students designs an independent investigation that is performed during the second lab period. To measure metabolic rate, students collect expired air in a Douglas bag, then measure the volume, the temperature, and the concentration of oxygen and carbon dioxide. W

"Quasi-Balanced Circulations in Oceans and Atmospheres, Fall 2009"
" This course introduces the students to dynamics of large-scale circulations in oceans and atmospheres. Basic concepts include mass and momentum conservation, hydrostatic and geostrophic balance, and pressure and other vertical coordinates. It covers the topics of fundamental conservation and balance principles for large-scale flow, generation and dissipation of quasi-balanced eddies, as well as equilibrated quasi-balanced systems. Examples of oceanic and atmospheric quasi-balanced flows, compu

9 Sedimentation at the end of the Caledonian Orgeny; Section 10 Legacy
Some of Britain’s most dramatic scenery is to be found in the Scottish Highlands. The sight of mighty Ben Nevis, the desolate plateau of the Cairngorms, or the imposing landscapes of Glen Coe can unleash the call of the wild in all of us. Although these landforms were largely carved by glacial activity that ended some 10,000 years ago, the rocks themselves tell of a much older history. The Highlands are merely eroded stumps of a much higher range of ancient mountains. This unit is an account o

Saturday Night on the Range: Rural Life in World War I Era Montana
We often like to imagine rural life in the past as timeless, "traditional," and in some way simpler and more authentic. Yet, rural life in the years around World War I, while sometimes recalled as simpler, could often seem very much like life anywhere else. In this interview, conducted by Laurie Mercier in 1982 for the Montana Historical Society, Tom Staff remembers how Montana farmers took other jobs to supplement their incomes. Here he described how the road crew he worked on left camp for dan

Small Regulatory RNAs May Sharpen Spatial Expression Patterns
The precise establishment of gene expression patterns is a crucial step in development. Formation of a sharp boundary between high and low spatial expression domains requires a genetic mechanism that exhibits sensitivity, yet is robust to fluctuations, a demand that may not be easily achieved by morphogens alone. Recently, it has been demonstrated that small RNAs (and, in particular, microRNAs) play many roles in embryonic development. Whereas some RNAs are essential for embryogenesis, others ar

Wake Meandering -- An Analysis of Instantaneous 2d Laser Measurements
The vast majority of wind turbines are today erected in wind farms. As a consequence, wake generated loads are becoming more and more important. We present a new experimental technique to measure the instantaneous wake deficit directly, thus allowing us to quantify the wake meandering as well as the instantaneous wake expansion expressed in a meandering frame of reference. The experimental results are subsequently used in a preliminary verification of the basic conjecture of a wake meandering mo
