Uniform convergence and pointwise convergence
The aim of this material is to introduce the student to two notions of convergence for sequences of real-valued functions. The notion of pointwise convergence is relatively straightforward, but the notion of uniform convergence is more subtle. Uniform convergence is explained in terms of closed function balls and the new notion of sets absorbing sequences. The differences between the two types of convergence are illustrated with several examples. Some standard facts are also discussed: a uniform
The package was written in 1996. Radio immuno assay (RIA) is a technique for measuring concentrations of antigens. Although better techniques have subsequently been developed from it, understanding RIA forms the basis for understanding these derivatives. RIA belongs to the family of competition assays which are widely used in science, medicine and related industries to measure the concentrations of biologically active molecules. This package introduces the concepts of RIA and will be useful to a

Building a Space of Cultural Heritage Objects to Explore It in the Classroom
Not only for further understanding of subjects but also for learning analytical thinking or inductive inference, it is important to provide a highly engageable environment where pupils can interact with high quality cultural contents easily. The authors have been developed an interactive exploring tool called CEAX Voyager. One of the important issues to make the learning with CEAX Voyager effective is to prepare adaptive descriptions for pupils. This paper proposes a framework for supporting cre
