The monosaccharide browser allows you to view space filling Fischer projections of monosaccharides. You can edit the structure and discover the correct name or you can select names from the classified index to discover the structure. The structure can be edited by choosing between aldose/ketose, number of carbon atoms between 3 and 6 and by clicking on carbon atoms to alter chirality. The Monosaccharide Browser can be used as a study aid in various ways. •Make a random monosaccharide by clic
WISE - The Web-Based Inquiry Science Environment
The Web-based Inquiry Science Environment (WISE) is a free on-line science learning environment for students in grades 4-12. In WISE, students work on exciting inquiry projects on topics such as genetically modified foods, earthquake prediction, and the deformed frogs mystery. Students learn about and respond to contemporary scientific controversies through designing, debating, and critiquing solutions, all via the internet. Curriculum projects are complete and ready to use in the classroom. The
The goal of this unit is for students to develop a deeper understanding of electromagnetism through inquiry based activities. The first session in the guide is designed to teach students that magnets have an invisible force field known as a magnetic field, and that this field has an effect that can be measured around a magnet using a compass. The second session is designed to teach students that electricity flowing in wires also creates an invisible magnetic field that can also be measured using
EngineSim and RangeGames Downloads
EngineSim was developed at the NASA Glenn Research Center in an effort to foster hands-on, inquiry-based learning in science and math. EngineSim is a simulator that models the design and testing of jet engines. The program works in two modes: Design Mode or Tunnel Test Mode. In the Design Mode, you can change design variables including the flight conditions, the engine size, the inlet performance, the turbo machinery compressor and turbine performance, the combustors or burner performance, or th

A Virtual Learning Environment for Doing Business on the Internet
The power of the new Communication and Information Technologies influences human life and economy so deeply that makes all of us learners both as individuals and members of (real or virtual) learning communities and learning organisations in a learning society. Looking back at the communication and information technology history we could clearly observe that the main attention of researchers and technologists has been gradually moved from hardware to software, next - to human-computer interface,
Comparison of Approaches to a Multimedia Presentation
Two computer-based multimedia lecture presentations were developed using the same software but using two different approaches. Similar lecture material was used for both lecture presentations. Students found that there were considerable differences between the two lecture presentations. One lecture presentation was found to be very dynamic and interesting compared to the other. However, when videos showing applications of theory were supplied with the less interesting lecture presentation, stude
