Essential Science for Teachers: Physical Science
In-depth interviews with children that uncover their ideas about the topic at hand.,In this segment the interviewer is using the phenomenon of salt dissolving in water to build upon the student's previous ideas about mixing substances together. This time the student sees one of the substances as "disappearing." Even though he says the mixture will still taste salty, which is evidence that there is salt in the water, he shows that he holds on to a belief that the salt has disappeared and is gone.

Les avis individuels sont-ils pris en compte lors d'une activité collaborative à distance ? Quels
Cet article a pour objectif de mettre en évidence de quelle manière les avis individuels sont pris en considération lors d'une activité collaborative. Nous nous attacherons à vérifier tout d'abord dans quelle mesure les avis individuels des 96 sujets de notre échantillon se modifient ou non selon la modalité de travail collaboratif (modalités de constitution de la paire, consignes collaboratives visant ou non au consensus) à laquelle ils sont confrontés (question de recherche 1).

Empirical Research Methods
Regression analysis is an enormously popular and powerful tool, used ubiquitously in the social and behavioral sciences. Most courses on the subject immediately dive into the mathematical aspects of the subject and illustrate the technique on problems that are already highly structured. As a result, most students come away with little idea of the wide range of problems to which regression analysis can be applied and how to represent those problems in a way that cleverly utilizes readily availabl

Causal Reasoning
Does excessive exposure to violent video games cause violent behavior? Does increased gun availability cause more crime or less? Causal claims permeate everyday life and are constantly the subject of "studies" reported in the newspaper. The material in Causal and Statistical Reasoning examines the nature of causal claims and the statistical sorts of evidence used to support them. The material is contained in: approximately 20 content modules, a repository of over 100 short case studies, and a "C

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

Providing for the Buddha: monastic centres in Eastern India (video)

This paper attempts to address one of the issues of the series, viz. patronage, not just the relationship between Buddhist monastic centres and kings, but more significantly the lay community and its continuing support of monks and nuns and sponsorship of ritual activities, as well as maintenance of monastic structures. Eastern India is here defined as the state of Orissa, but includes contiguous coastal regions. The time period covered ranges from the 4th-3rd centuries BC when the earliest
