University of Oxford: The Molecules of Life
This Molecules of Life website was created by Craig D. Livingston and Dr. Martin E. Noble, of the University of Oxford as "an interactive introduction to the techniques used in the Laboratory of Molecular Biophysics to gain understanding of the structure of protein molecules." To increase accessibility to this subject matter, this website was designed for "a wide, non-specialist audience including young people of school age." The website links to educational sections on Proteins, X-Ray Crystallo
Geologic Time: Eons, Eras, and Epochs
This resource guide from the Middle School Portal 2 project, written specifically for teachers, provides links to exemplary resources including background information, lessons, career information, and related national science education standards. This publication contains resources designed to do three things. The first is to complement teacher content knowledge and its relationship to the nature of geologic science. Geology is not a laboratory based science lending itself to traditional notions
Difference of Squares
This lesson uses a series of related arithmetic experiences to prompt students to generalize into more abstract ideas. In particular, students explore arithmetic statements leading to a result that is the factoring pattern for the difference of two squares. An excellent teaching idea on how to help students walk the bridge from arithmetic to algebra.

Function notation is a method for writing functions that is easy to read and understand. This video explains that functions have dependent and independent variables. When function notation is used, the independent variable is commonly x, and the dependent variable is F(x). To write a relationship or equation using function notation, we must first determine if the relationship is a function. (2:04)

ICAtect: Integrating Design Tools for Preliminary Architectural Design
ICAtect is a knowledge based system that provides an interface between expert systems, simulation packages and CAD systems used for preliminary architectural design. This thesis describes its structure and development.The principal work discussed in this thesis involves the formulation of a method for representing a building. This is developed through an examination of a number of design tools used in architectural design, and the ways in which each of these describe a building.Methods of enabli
