American Environmental and Cultural History - Fall 2006. This course presents a history of the American environment and the ways in which different cultural groups have perceived, used, managed, and conserved it from colonial times to the present. Cultures include American Indians and European and African Americans. Natural resources development includes gathering-hunting-fishing; farming, mining, ranching, forestry, and urbanization. ...
"I Always Had Pads with Me": A G.I. Artist's Sketchpad, 1943-1944
In the wake of the attack on Pearl Harbor and the declaration of war, thousands of Americans enlisted in the U.S. armed forces. Among them was twenty-year-old Bronx resident Ben Hurwitz. Like many of the men and women who entered military service, Hurwitz (who changed his name to Brown after the war) kept a record of his experiences. But his "journal" was a sketchpad, and, during his two years in North Africa and Italy, Corporal Hurwitz drew and painted at every opportunity. Hurwitz's pictures a
Palaeontologica Electronica is a peer-reviewed, online journal of paleontology. Articles span a wide spectrum of topics in paleontology including micropaleontology, palynology, invertebrate paleontology, paleobotany, vertebrate paleontology or related biological disciplines. Users can follow links to current articles, archived articles, volume indexes, editorials, author resources and sponsor information. Articles are available in html and PDF formats.
Using Field Labs
Starting Point's introduction to the use of field labs in entry level geoscience classes. The page is a portal to lab examples, a discussion of the benefits of a lab curriculum, and an exploration of the logistical and pedagogical considerations of using field labs. Includes a bibliography and relevant articles from the Journal of Geoscience Education.
Searching for Protoplanetary Disks
Students will download NASA Hubble Space Telescope views of star-forming regions in nebulae and look for evidence of planetary systems forming beyond our own solar system.
Rockets: Educators Guide
Few classroom topics generate as much excitement as rockets. The scientific, technological, engineering and mathematical foundations of rocketry provide exciting classroom opportunities for authentic hands-on, minds-on experimentation. The activities and lesson plans contained in this educator guide emphasize hands-on science, prediction, data collection and interpretation, teamwork, and problem solving. The guide also contains background information about the history of rockets and basic rocket
This website developed by Preetha Ram at Emory is intended to provide web-based support for a problem-based learning exercise focused on forensics. Students work in teams to solve a crime using data from a variety of sources (victim\'s journal, incident reports, coroner\'s reports). The materials are decidedly unique and the approach is likely to be of interest to a large number of faculty and students because of current popular interest in forensics. It should be noted that there are several b
Life on Earth...and Elsewhere?
This downloadable booklet contains five inquiry- and standards-based classroom activities for grades 5-8 and three math extensions spanning topics from Defining Life, to Determining the Chances of Extraterrestrial Life.
The China Papers: Using PBL and Cooperative Group Learning in Teaching
This site which is a pdf file provides an introduction to how the author is introducing PBL methods into his instrumental analysis class in China. He discusses how instrumental analysis is being taught in China and provides insight into the educational environment (resources, etc.) in which he is introducing pbl in China. As such it is a wealth of information for faculty from other countries especially for those interested in international education especially those collaborating with teaching f
Cyclic Voltammetry Simulator
This simulator allows the modeling of responses from experiments in cyclic voltammetry, and is applicable to a wide variety of parameters. Excellent instructional aids in text form include description of electrochemical reversibility, diffusion, instrumentation and interpretation of cyclic voltammograms, with real-time demonstration of parameter changes.
Statistics for Chemists: Exercises
This website contains a group of exercises that allow students to practice basic statistical calculations for descriptive statistics, confidence intervals, hypothesis tests, regression and experimental design. The exercises are interactive and provide feedback for students who submit wrong answers.
Linking the Lab Experience with Everyday Life: An Analytical Chemistry Experiment for Agronomy Stude
Modifying the analytical chemistry curriculum to increase student interest in agronomy. Samples of soils and plants prepared by students were introduced. The response of plants to different soil treatments increased student interest in chemical analyses. Evaluation of chemical and physicochemical parameters demonstrated the application of concepts of chemistry in analysis.
Collaborative Work During Interventional Radiological Procedures Based on a Multicast Satellite-Terr
Collaboration is a key requirement in several contemporary interventional radiology procedures (IRPs). This work proposes a multicast hybrid satellite system capable of supporting advanced IRP collaboration, and evaluates its feasibility and applicability. Following a detailed IRP requirements study, we have developed a system which supports IRP collaboration through the employment of a hybrid satellite-terrestrial network, a prototype multicast version of wavelet based interactive communication
Start a Rock Collection
In this OLogy activity, kids learn about how rocks give us important clues about Earth's history. The activity begins with an overview that explains the evidence rocks hold and how kids can begin to make observations about their different traits. Students are then given step-by-step, illustrated directions for collecting rocks, observing and sorting them, and creating a display of their collection. The activity includes a printable rock chart to help kids make their observations.
Graphical Representation of Geologic Time
This spiral graph visualization, which includes both marine and terrestrial components, represents 4.5 billion years of geologic time. Stratigraphy, paleontology, and geochronology study results provide evidence in support of this old earth. This graphical representation is from an article called Age of the Earth.

George Rochberg and His Music
Documentary containing interview footage with the composer George Rochberg, and narrated overview of his life and music. Includes performances of his music recorded for this program. Rochberg compositions are performed for the piece. They include: 'Between Two Worlds,' with Sue Ann Kahn on flute and Andrew Willis on piano 'Rehearsal,' with Joseph Robinson on Oboe 'Soundings' was a music documentary program affiliated with the Workshop and produced by Bernice 'Bunny' Olenick.
Radiogenic Isotopes And Geochronology
This resource provides illustrated lecture notes from a geochemistry course offered by Dr. Scott Wood at the University of Idaho. Topics include the law of radioactivity and the general geochronometry equation, the use common radioactive decay equations such as K-Ar, Ar-Ar, Rb-Sr, and U-Th-Pb, the use of isochrones, concordia diagrams and discordia, the concept of "blocking temperature," the use of radiogenic isotopes as tracers of petrogenetic processes, and the use of cosmogenic radionuclides
