Geometric Relationships and the Human Brain
The brain has a complex system for keeping track of which direction you are facing as you move about; remembering how to get from one place to another would otherwise be impossible. Researchers from the University of Pennsylvania have now shown how the brain anchors this mental compass. Their findings provide a neurological basis for something that psychologists have long observed about navigational behavior: people use geometrical relationships to orient themselves. The research, which is rel
15.996 Cross-Cultural Leadership (MIT)
Cross Cultural Leadership is a collaborative research seminar that examines what constitutes "effective" leadership across cultures. It is collaborative because the students are expected to provide some of the content. The weekly readings target particular aspects of cultural differentiation. Working within those topics, students are asked to describe aspects of leadership in particular cultures based on their research and/or personal experiences. The goal of the course is to help prepare studen

Teaching Grammar with Board Races - TEFL ESL
This six minute video shows how to make a board race game to help students learn basic ESL skills. It is well done with both graphics and a narrator that slowly goes over the material.The game is demonstrated using older students. In this game students must categorize the two forms of comparative adjectives.
Primaries, Caucuses, and Conventions
In early American times, only members of Congress and the Senate could nominate a Presidential candidate. Things soon changed and Americans were able to gain the right to choose their party nominees. In this video clip, host David Eisenbach explains the history of the long election process a candidate must go through to become President of the United States. (4:15)
In this 3:37 long video Dr. Teresa Dalle demonstrates a warm-up activity with her TESL class. It includes graphics to help explain the value of such an activity and is used with older students. Lots of good information.

Bezier Surface : Surface Intersection
In this article the authors explain the computational requirement and accuracy of two methods for finding the intersection of Bezier surfaces. In both methods, the existence of an intersection curve is confirmed by using the convex hull property of such surfaces. The first method evaluates the intersection by recursive subdivision of two patches with overlapping hulls. The second method detects a point on the intersection curve, then incrementally traces the intersection in the parametric spaces
Assessing your skills
Welcome to Assessing Your Skills one of the series of Futures workbooks, which help students choose and prepare for their careers. Like the other workbooks in the series you can dip in and out doing the exercises which are most relevant to you. You might want to include the exercises or the output in your personal development plan or e-portfolio. The aim of this workbook is to help you to clarify or identify your skills as a first step toward choosing work that really suits you. It can also he
Fruit Fly Surveillance
The International Space Station is an exciting location for scientists to conduct research. One exciting research topic that NASA is currently working is researching the effects of microgravity on the biological processes of fruit flies. Engineers have been working closely with scientists to design and build an optimal observation system for the fruit flies that will help them conduct the research they need. Explore the engineering process in this NASA episode of Spark 101.
