8.811 Particle Physics II (MIT)
8.811, Particle Physics II, describes essential research in High Energy Physics. We derive the Standard Model (SM) first using a bottom up method based on Unitarity, in addition to the usual top down method using SU3xSU2xU1. We describe and analyze several classical experiments, which established the SM, as examples on how to design experiments. Further topics include heavy flavor physics, high-precision tests of the Standard Model, neutrino oscillations, searches for new phenomena (compositenes
The Alphabet Song in Phonics
The alphabet song set to the phonic sound of each letter.
Scottish Screen Archive
The Scottish Screen Archive is based at the National Library of Scotland. It houses over 32,000 examples of video and film covering scottish cultural, social and political history. Its website provides information about its collections, including access to its searchable catalogue of holdings. An increasing number of film clips and be viewed free of charge via the website. Key topics covered by these include Scotland during the First and Second World Wars; Scottish industry, the homelife and cul
Changes in grouping practices over primary and secondary school
The research detailed in this paper provides a systematic description and analysis of classroomgrouping practices in primary and secondary schools in England. Practices are compared to main findings in developmental and educational literature with regard to effective contexts for learning and recent ideas about pedagogy. The research is based on an analysis of 4924 pupil groupings from672 Reception, Year 2 and Year 5 classes in 331 primary schools and 248 Year 7 and Year 10 classes in 47 seconda
16.410 Principles of Autonomy and Decision Making (MIT)
This course surveys a variety of reasoning, optimization, and decision-making methodologies for creating highly autonomous systems and decision support aids. The focus is on principles, algorithms, and their applications, taken from the disciplines of artificial intelligence and operations research. Reasoning paradigms include logic and deduction, heuristic and constraint-based search, model-based reasoning, planning and execution, reasoning under uncertainty, and machine learning. Optimization
15.818 Pricing (MIT)
This course, primarily discussion based, provides a framework for understanding pricing strategies and tactics. Topics covered include pricing in competitive markets, estimating demand, price discrimination, the role of price cues, anticipating competitive responses, pricing in business to business markets, and pricing of new products. Lectures and cases are the primary modes of learning.

Don Pensak of Scope City explains how to get started using your new telescope. Don recommends getting a simple map of the night sky, along with a star atlas so that you can get an idea of where objects are located. Run time 02:26.
Counting By Twos Song
The Counting By Twos Song is great for learning how to skip count from 2 to 50 and 2 to 100. The lyrics, numbers and images are shown as the song is sung.
8.851 Strong Interactions: Effective Field Theories of QCD (MIT)
This is a course in the construction and application of effective field theories, which are the modern tool of choice in making predictions based on the Standard Model. Concepts such as matching, renormalization, the operator product expansion, power counting, and running with the renormalization group will be discussed. Topics will be taken from factorization in hard processes relevant for the LHC, heavy quark decays and CP violation, chiral perturbation theory, non-relativistic bound states in
Working Towards a Connected Frontline Health System
Commonwealth Government needs to improve the efficiency and effectiveness of Australia's health care system. Primary health care provides the first point of contact for patients and is touted as the cornerstone of a more effective health system, but it is undermined by fragmented services. Frontline clinicians need be able to provide comprehensive, coordinated and personalised care to patients, particularly those with multiple serious illnesses such as cancer, diabetes and depression.

21W.747-1 Rhetoric (MIT)
This course is an introduction to the history, the theory, the practice, and the implications (both social and ethical) of rhetoric, the art and craft of persuasion. By the end of the semester, you will have been exposed to several of the key concepts of rhetoric (e.g., ethos, pathos, logos, invention, style, arrangement, kairos, stasis, commonplaces) and to the over-riding importance of writing to your audience. You will have gotten a taste of rhetorical history and theory. You will explore and
RVC 44 - Surgical Treatment of Heart Valve Disease in Dogs
Heart murmurs in young dogs are a fairly frequent finding in small animal practice, but in some cases they may reflect severe congenital abnormalities. Here, Professor Dan Brockman describes the treatments available for these dogs, with particular reference to the surgical repair of pulmonic stenosis.
This video introduces vocabulary related to the Family. There are definitions and simple dialogues using the words in content and explanations. There are descriptions of different members of the family. There are examples of the use of the verb TO HAVE. (It may be useful for kids any age learning English as a second Language)
How to Make a Easter Memory Game
In this video you will learn how to make a matching game. This video is from Crayola so you need Crayola Magic Fusion as an ingredient. You need plastic eggs, some glue and scissors. Perfect for Easter day fun.
Tocqueville's New Political Science: Address by Professor Harvey Mansfield
Professor Mansfield discusses Tocquevillian political theory and its intrinsic connection to practice.
20.109 Laboratory Fundamentals in Biological Engineering (MIT)
This course introduces experimental biochemical and molecular techniques from a quantitative engineering perspective. Rigorous quantitative data collection, statistical analysis, and conceptual understanding of instrumentation design and application form the underpinnings of this course. The four discovery based modules include DNA Engineering, Protein Engineering, Systems Engineering, and Biomaterials Engineering. Additional information is available on the course Wiki (hosted on OpenWetWare.) T
TALAT Lecture 3210: Continuous Casting
This lecture gives an overview about the possibilities to produce aluminium foilstock and wire-bar in a continuous way. Continuous casting is the preferred casting method in modern plants because it offers higher productivity. But there are limitations in the use of this technology because not all alloys can be cast. The product shows properties that can differ from conventional material. This lecture demonstrates the principal of operation; technologies for continuous casting; types of casters;
