Changes in microstructure of a shape memory alloy (bi-crystal of austenitic CuAlNi )
Changes in microstructure of a shape memory alloy being heat treated and also mechanically deformed. A bi-crystal of austenitic CuAlNi is cooled, causing transformation to the martensitic (2H orthorhombic) phase. The process is reversed in the second half of the video, as the specimen is heated again. The rate at which transformation occurs is controlled by heat flow effects. (The shear process itself tends to take place very rapidly.) The martensitic phase is internally twinned. This is very cl
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 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.
Marquette's Dr. Ryan Jerving Performs for National Poetry Month

The faculty members read selections from some of their favorite poets and shared some originals. In this clip, Dr. Ryan Jerving performs his song "Stop Her in My Hand."
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
Alternative discussion formats
Formal debates and question-and-answer discussions are great, but these alternative discussion formats will liven up your classroom and get students really thinking.

4.296 Furniture Making (MIT)
Furniture making is in many ways like bridge building, connections holding posts apart with spans to support a deck. Many architects have tried their hand at furniture design, Wright, Mies Van Der Rohe, Aalto, Saarinen, Le Corbusier, and Gerhy. We will review the history of furniture making in America with a visit to the Decorative Arts Collection at the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston and have Cambridge artist/craftsman Mitch Ryerson show us his work and talk about design process. Students will l

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
