Learning from the Fossil Record
This is a hypertext version of a book originally published by the Paleontological Society. The book was written to accompany an educational workshop Learning from the Fossil Record presented for K-16 educators at the 1996 Annual Meeting of the Geological Society of American in Denver, Colorado. The workshop was intended to give K-12 teaches information on how scientists use fossil evidence to reconstruct the past. It also offered ideas about using paleontology to teach the scientific process.
Yet Another Calculus Text
I intend this book to be, firstly, a introduction to calculus based on the hyperreal number system. In other words, I will use infinitesimal and infinite numbers freely. Just as most beginning calculus books provide no logical justification for the real number system, I will provide none for the hyperreals. The reader interested in questions of foundations should consult books such as Abraham Robinson's Non-standard Analysis or Robert Goldblatt's Lectures on the Hyperreals. Secondly, I have aime
1.4 The contribution of culture: policy as meaning making The third model of the relationship between policy and action, between structure and agency, is based on the idea that human agency cannot be understood by simply regarding people either as cogs in a machine or as elements in an interactive system. Rather, human beings are meaning makers and act on the basis of their understandings and interpretations of events. In other words, they construct their own reality. Such constructions are not unique to them as individuals, but draw on a stock of s

3.3 Real time chat Online chat is a means of having a quick written conversation with one or more people who are online at the same time. Compared with email, there's less of a time lag in waiting for a response. Messages are likely to be more spontaneous, and it can be anarchic when several people reply at once.

Cu 70, Zn 30 (wt%), slow cooling - annealing twins
This sample was cooled slowly and contains equiaxed α grains that form in order to minimise their surface energy. Within these grains there is evidence of twinning. Annealing twins have formed during recrystallisation.
Ni-Superalloy, as-extruded microstructure
Micrograph shows a fully recrystallized microstructure containing many equiaxed grains and γ' precipitates. In addition to this there are also several carbides and borides (seen as white). There is evidence of misorientation between adjacent grains, demonstrated by the large degree of contrast. View schematic diagram of γ' microstructure
