Middle School Portal: Math and Science Pathways (MSP2)
In this interactive exercise, students in grade 6 and up determine if a Mars rover should look for evidence of life on or underneath the Martian surface. To make this determination, students process visual and textual information about how four factors (cosmic radiation, ultraviolet radiation, temperature, and presence of water) impact Earth and Mars. They look at each factor in isolation by reading a brief explanation of its effect on life, analyzing cartoon-like images of its influence on Eart

Prostate Cancer Screening Decision Making Under Controversy: Implications for Health Promotion Pract
Prostate cancer is a major health problem for U.S. men and is characterized by paradoxes and controversies. Despite the wide availability of the prostate-specific antigen (PSA) test, prostate cancer screening remains a controversial practice mainly because the direct impact of screening on mortality is not yet proven. As the relative value of screening, early detection, and treatment strategies continue to be debated, glaring racial-ethnic disparities persist with African American men experienci

Introduction to Prehistory in Britain
The course will start with an introduction to Archaeology, and in particular contemporary perceptions of Prehistory and how archaeology attempts to make sense of the past, of how people lived, worked and died in a period of time for which we have no written records or maps to help our understanding of these communities. The course starts when Britain finally became free of ice around 9500BC and the accepted start of the Mesolithic in Britain. At that time people were living a fairly nomadic
