Essential Science for Teachers: Physical Science: Session 2. The Particle Nature of Matter: Solids,
In-depth interviews with children that uncover their ideas about the topic at hand.,The student is asked to divide a piece of aluminum foil into the smallest piece possible. The interviewer continues to probe what would happen each time you make it smaller, specifically probing to find out if the smallest possible piece would still have the same properties as the whole and whether there would be a point where you couldn't divide it any more. It was evident that the interviewer was trying to prob
How to Draw Hands, 2 Ways (Open Palm and Writing)
This video clip includes a tutorial on how to draw hands. The video covers two different methods including open palm and writing. (13:24)
SP.713 Recreate Experiments from History: Inform the Future from the Past: Galileo (MIT)
2010 marks the 400th anniversary of Galileo's astonishing sightings of features on the moon, stars, and moons around Jupiter that no one had seen before. Recreate these new ways of seeing and exploring from the materials and techniques Galileo had on hand, while you reflect on the times and works of Galileo. What was it like to improvise new ways of seeing and exploring from the materials and techniques on hand? What do we notice? What surprises us? How can we relate to past experience and ideas

Rapid solidification in an atomised droplet
Because of the fine scale of the droplet, heat extraction is very rapid, and large undercoolings are achieved before crystal nucleation can begin. Thus, in this droplet, the solidification front has advanced very rapidly through the droplet from the nucleation point (on the surface at the left of the image). Its velocity is initially so great that no interfacial breakdown is possible. As the front advances, however, latent heat is evolved and this 'recalescence' reduces the rate of solidifica
Atom Orbitals: The Basics
A basic primer on atomic orbitala. It discusses what atomic orbitals are, how they are shaped, defined, how they are filled, what they represent. The graphics are interesting and very useful for following along with the tutorial. (14:26)
A Date Which Will Live in Infamy
This site shows the typewritten draft of the December 8, 1941, speech in which Franklin Roosevelt asked Congress to declare war on Japan. The draft shows Roosevelt's hand-written edits, including his change of the phrase a date which will live in world history to a date which will live in infamy. Students can also listen to the beginning of the speech.
A Colonial Legacy in Miskito Turtle Knowledge (Nicaragua)
Over the past several decades the increasing prevalence of natural resource crises has led many ecologists to seek alternatives to Western resource use paradigms. Primary amongst these alternatives are systems guided by indigenous knowledge (IK). It is commonly presumed that these systems represent institutions uncorrupted by the exploitative hand of Western culture and state domination and therefore hold the key to rectifying the unsustainable behaviors of Western societies.
Star Library: Counting Eights: A First Activity in the Study and Interpretation of Probability
Students explore the definition and interpretations of the probability of an event by investigating the long run proportion of times a sum of 8 is obtained when two balanced dice are rolled repeatedly. Making use of hand calculations, computer simulations, and descriptive techniques, students encounter the laws of large numbers in a familiar setting. By working through the exercises, students will gain a deeper understanding of the qualitative and quantitative relationships between theoretical p
Internet, telefonie, draadloze netwerken zijn drie bekende toepassingen van communicatietechnologie. In deze inleidende cursus worden aan de hand van deze actuele toepassingsgebieden enkele theorieën en basistechnieken van communicatietechnologie verkend. De wezenlijke aspecten van communicatietechnologie die daarbij de revue passeren worden systematisch op een rij gezet en tenslotte wordt dieper ingegaan op informatieoverdracht en communicatietheorieën
Deadliest Space Weather S01E02 - Biggest Storm in the Solar System
With winds reaching a speed of 400 miles per hour, Jupiter's hurricane has carried on for at least 300 years, and state-of-the-art technology gives viewers a rare and in-depth look into the solar system's biggest storm on the planet. (21:15)
