Buzz Williams on character, hard work and teamwork
Think of the Marquette men's basketball team as a stock. That's what coach Buzz Williams — a numbers lover if there ever was one — does. "We want to be a stock that you want to buy. We don't want to be a stock that you're scared of," he says. Which is exactly why he recruits players who are "great people," who love to work and who have character, which he discussed at the Oct. 19, 2010, CIRCLES event in New York.
Consulting pupils about teaching and learning
The resource is a summary, appearing on the GTCE website, of a three-year research project, led by Professor Jean Rudduck, as part of the Economic and Research Council, Teaching and Learning Research Programme. The project, a Research for Teachers (formerly Research of the Month) case study, considers the impact of consulting pupils about teaching and learning.
Looking at Learning ... Again, Part 2: Workshop 5. Infusing Critical and Creative Thinking
With Dr. Robert Swartz. Teachers can help students become good thinkers. Good thinkers raise key questions and gather and evaluate pertinent information, thus making informed decisions. But how do we teach students to think skillfully? In this workshop, you will see how thinking skills can be infused into science content instruction, contrasted with direct instruction in non-curricular contexts. You will also see classrooms where teachers have restructured their lessons to infuse thinking skills

REMIXING ÇATALHÖYÜK For more than a decade, archaeologists and scholars have gathered in central Turkey to explore the remains of the 9,000-year-old village of Çatalhöyük. First excavated in the 1960s, Çatalhöyük became world-famous for its dense architecture and spectacular wall decorations. Between 1997 and 2003, a team from the University of California Berkeley worked intensively on one building there, bringing to light the life history of a Neolithic home. Remixing Çatalhöyük fea
ATV: a very special delivery
Early in 2008, an Ariane 5 rocket blasted off from Europe’s spaceport in French Guiana. The rocked carried the most sophisticated lorry ever built – the European Space Agency’s Automated Transfer Vehicle, the ATV. From its first flight, ATV will play a vital role in International Space Station (ISS) servicing. Every 12 months or so, the ATV will haul 7.5 tonnes of cargo to the ISS, 400 km above the Earth. The video - addressed mostly to the youngsters- tells the story of a very special del

Current Population Reports, P60-235,
Income, Poverty, and Health Insurance Coverage in the United St
This report presents data on income, poverty, and health insurance coverage in the United States based on information collected in the 2008 and earlier Annual Social and Economic Supplements (ASEC) to the Current Population Survey (CPS) conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau. Data presented in this report indicate the following: • Real median household income increased between 2006 and 2007—the third annual increase.1 • The poverty rate was not statistically different between 2006 and 2007.
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

An Analysis of the Applications of Rapid Prototyping in Architecture
Rapid prototyping (RP) techniques are widely used within the design/manufacturing industry and are well established in manufacturing industry. These digital techniques offer quick and accurate prototypes with relatively low cost when we require exact likeness to a particular scale and detail. 3D modeling of buildings on CAD-systems in the AEC sector is now becoming more popular and becoming widely used practice as the higher efficiency of working with computers is being recognized. However the b
