How Mountains are Formed
Students investigate how mountains are formed. Concepts include the composition and structure of the Earth's tectonic plates and tectonic plate boundaries, with an emphasis on plate convergence as it relates to mountain formation. Students learn that geotechnical engineers design technologies to measure movement of tectonic plates and mountain formation, as well as design to alter the mountain environment to create safe and dependable roadways and tunnels.
Household Energy Conservation and Efficiency
Students complete three different activities to evaluate the energy consumption in a household and explore potential ways to reduce that consumption. The focus is on conservation and energy efficient electrical devices and appliances. The lesson reinforces the relationship between power and energy and associated measurements and calculations required to evaluate energy consumption. The lesson provides the students with more concrete information for completing their culminating unit assignment.
Limpet showing foot
The intertidal zone is subject to intense wave forces and the muscular foot allows limpets to tightly grasp the rocks.
Honey mesquite plant (Prosopis glandulosa)
The yellow seed pods are the fruit of the honey mesquite plant. While the ovules of the fruit are becoming seeds after fertilization, the flower becomes a fruit pod.

How to Multiply Fractions
How to Multiply Fractions in Algebra - this tutorial will show you how to multiply and divide fractions in algebra. This brief clip is clear and easy to understand. (01:43)
Sea to Sky
In this lesson, students learn about major landforms (e.g., mountains, rivers, plains, valleys, canyons and plateaus) and how they occur on the Earth's surface. They learn about the civil and geotechnical engineering applications of geology and landforms, including the design of transportation systems, mining, mapping and measuring natural hazards.
PediNeuroLogic Exam: Newborn: Normal: Tone - Popliteal Angle
The popliteal angle is an assessment of the tone of the hamstring muscles. It is done one leg at a time. The thigh is flexed on the abdomen with one hand and then the other hand straightens the leg by pushing on the back of the ankle until there is firm resistance to the movement. The angle between the thigh and the leg is typically about 90 degrees. Extension of the leg beyond 90 to 120 degrees would be seen in hypotonia. A neuroscience tutorial focusing on those aspects of the pediatric neurol
Cash Flow Statements - Quiz
How much do you know about cash flow statements?
Regular sessions in the gymnasium in a disciplined routine to bring greater control and awareness into the student's posture, movement, and physical actions.
"Such Cases of Outrageous Unspeakable Abuse...": A Puerto Rican Migrant Protests Labor Conditions Du
In 1917 the United States declared the inhabitants of Puerto Rico, a U.S. possession since 1898, to be citizens of the United States--a "gift" that many Puerto Ricans resented. Seeing an untapped source of inexpensive labor, the U.S. Labor Department worked with industry to facilitate the migration of Puerto Rican workers to America. During the First World War the War Department agreed to transport Puerto Rican workers to labor camps in the United States where they would be housed and fed while
"That Broke Down the Ethnic Barriers": A Steelworker Describes the Decline of Ethnic Hostility in th
Tensions among industrial workers of different ethnic backgrounds often proved a barrier to unionization in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. It was, for example, a key factor in the defeat of the 1919 steel strike. In the 1930s, however, that began to change, particularly under the auspices of the CIO. In this 1974 interview done by historian Peter Gotlieb in 1974, Polish-American steelworker Joe Rudiak recalled how ethnic hostility declined in the "CIO days," particularly amon
South Boston High School, tape 1
African American students board buses at South Boston High School. Boston Police officers are stationed near the school. Police cruisers escort buses to and from the school. Jerome Wynegar (Headmaster, South Boston High School) stands in the schoolyard. White students exit the school after the buses depart. A passerby tells the camera crew that their presence causes a disturbance.
Fundamentals of Physics, II
This is a continuation of Fundamentals of Physics, I (PHYS 200), the introductory course on the principles and methods of physics for students who have good preparation in physics and mathematics. This course covers electricity, magnetism, optics and quantum mechanics.
