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

DNA Profiling by Mutliplex PCR Amplification and Genotype Determination by Reverse Dot-Blot Hybridiz
Human DNA profiling has applications in paternity testing and forensics. This exercise provides students the opportunity to gain first-hand experience with procedures that are currently used to extract DNA from their own cells, quantify the DNA in the extract, perform a multiplex PCR amplification of several loci used in forensic analysis, and determine their own genotype at those loci. In addition, methods for analyzing results relative to existing population databases will be presented. The ex
