Do you get stressed at the thought of an examination? Does the idea of revision fill you with dread? This unit will provide a host of tips to help you improve your revision and examination techniques and enable you to manage your time effectively by creating a timetable for your revision.
Back to School/Back Outside Report
In this 2:30 report,the importance of spending time outside for children is emphasised and how it impoves school performance. A good video to show to parents and to students in the Spring. Especially important is the relationship between being outside and better learning abilitiies.
"Introduction to MATLAB, Spring 2008"
"This course was offered as a non-credit program during the Independent Activities Period (IAP), which is a special 4-week term at MIT that runs from the first week of January until the end of the month. The course, intended for students with no programming experience, provides the foundations of programming in MATLAB®. Variables, arrays, conditional statements, loops, functions, and plots are explained. At the end of the course, students should be able to use MATLAB in their own work, and be p
1.364 Advanced Geotechnical Engineering (MIT)
1.364 examines site characterization and geotechnical aspects of the design and construction of foundation systems. Topics include: site investigation (with emphasis on in situ testing), shallow (footings and raftings) and deep (piles and caissons) foundations, excavation support systems, groundwater control, slope stability, soil improvement (compaction, soil reinforcement, etc.), and construction monitoring. This course is a core requirement for the Geotechnical Master of Engineering program a
6.895 Theory of Parallel Systems (SMA 5509) (MIT)
6.895 covers theoretical foundations of general-purpose parallel computing systems, from languages to architecture. The focus is on the algorithmic underpinnings of parallel systems. The topics for the class will vary depending on student interest, but will likely include multithreading, synchronization, race detection, load balancing, memory consistency, routing networks, message-routing algorithms, and VLSI layout theory. The class will emphasize randomized algorithms and probabilistic an
21M.342 Composing for Jazz Orchestra (MIT)

Chromosomes and Cell Reproduction
Teacher-produced slide show with detailed notes on chromosomes and the cell cycle. Discusses key chromosomes and specific abnormalities that may occur. No sound. Too much text on slides, but the pictures that are included are very good and illustrate the points made. Grades 9-12. Run time 04:05.
6.881 Representation and Modeling for Image Analysis (MIT)
Most algorithms in computer vision and image analysis can be understood in terms of two important components: a representation and a modeling/estimation algorithm. The representation defines what information is important about the objects and is used to describe them. The modeling techniques extract the information from images to instantiate the representation for the particular objects present in the scene. In this seminar, we will discuss popular representations (such as contours, level sets,
Lecture on Cell Transport
The following ideas are discussed and explained in video. Uses live examples and demonstrations. (Cell transport is movement of materials across cell membranes. Cell transport includes passive and active transport. Passive transport does not require energy whereas active transport requires energy to proceed. Passive transport proceeds through diffusion, facilitated diffusion and osmosis)

MAS.962 The Nature of Constructionist Learning (MIT)
This course examines the philosophical and theoretical foundations of constructionism as a paradigm for formulating and evaluating new theories for learning and approaches to education. One of the goals of this course is to help new learning researchers situate their work within the constructionist framework through readings and projects that will focus on the rich interplay between the process of knowledge construction and the development and co-evolution of ideas, learners, tools, and contexts

Tanti baci da Orvieto! Greeting from Orvieto
You first read a postcard and extract the correct details. You then fill in the correct adjective at the correct place making any changes necessary. After this you are given a text with gaps in it for which verbs, adjectives and other terms have to be filled in without any help. In the next exercise you give the past participle of the verbs. Finally you write a postcard on the basis of the example given and certain words that are provided.

Fear and Trembling' - Problema II - Existentialism in Literature and Film
Phil 7: Existentialism in Literature and Film - Spring 2006. The course will be organized around various attempts to reinterpret the Judeo/Christian God, and to determine in what sense, if at all, such a God is still a living God. We will study Dostoyevsky's and Kierkegaard's attempts to preserve a non-theological version of the God of Christianity, as well as Nietzche's attempt to save us from belief in any version of God offered by our tradition. We will view and discuss three films that deal
