This case study presents an investigation into the corrosion kinetics of copper and iron using electrochemical measurements to determine corrosion potentials and polarisation curves. This is an introductory level case study.
Introduction to modelling for 1st year engineers
These resources cover an introduction to modelling for first year engineering undergraduate. The main focus is on electrical and mechanical systems, but there is also some discussion of dc motors, fluids and heat as well as an introduction to time series modelling. The main emphasis is on why modelling is important and how to go about doing this from first principles (e.g. Kirchhoff's laws, Newton's Laws, etc.). Given the focus is on new students arriving at University, there is no attempt to de
Human Microbiota in Health
A tutorial providing information on the human commensal bacteria and the infections they cause. A series of questions based on the culture and Gram stain of clinical samples guides the reader into the correct identification of the causative organism of infection. Full explanations of the answers are provided. This is a Questionmark Perception file. The QTIXML file needs to be opened in QP Authoring Manager, converted to an assessment and exported into your own VLE.

Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA)
The Module is designed to provide a critical overview of the theory and practice of Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) as operated internationally to those students who need to understand EIA: this includes formal students being graduate and postgraduate students, plus practitioners/professionals. Within this framework there are opportunities to customise the material to reflect local jurisdictional procedures and issues.
Superspace: One Thousand and One Lessons in Supersymmetry
We introduce superfields in chapter 2 for the simpler world of three spacetime dimensions, where superfields are very similar to ordinary fields. We skip the discussion of nonsuperspace topics (background fields, gravity, etc.) which are covered in following chapters, and concentrate on a pedagogical treatment of superspace. We return to four dimensions in chapter 3, where we describe how supersymmetry is represented on superfields, and discuss all general properties of free superfields (and the
Science Daily: A curve ball into the Snowball Earth hypothesis.
This Science Daily article summarizes a paper in Geology pertaining to the Snowball Earth debate. The author found evidence for healthy marine ecosystems at a time when they were supposed to be completely frozen over and anoxic. The website also contains a great search engine used to other Snowball Earth articles.
Encounters: Fourth Grade Teacher's Guide
The ENCOUNTERS teachers' guide offers an alternative to a textbook on Arizona. It has more information, resources and activities than we, as teachers, could hope to use in any given year. In addition, the "Encounters Box," which is available in local school libraries, supplements the guide with other ...

Visit to an Ocean Planet: Timing the Tides
Tide tables, commonly seen in newspapers and on television in coastal areas, show that comparable local high and low tides occur almost one hour later from one day to the next. The motion of the Moon as it revolves around the Earth largely accounts for the time lag. Students participating in this activity will investigate this time lag by using the tide time diagram and instructions which are provided. They should be able to describe how and why the times of low and high tide change from one day
"Wheelchair Design in Developing Countries, Spring 2009"
"According to the United States Agency for International Development, 20 million people in developing countries require wheelchairs, and the United Nations Development Programme estimates below 1% of their need is being met in Africa by local production. Wheelchair Design in Developing Countries (WDDC) gives students the chance to better the lives of others by improving wheelchairs and tricycles made in the developing world. Lectures will focus on understanding local factors, such as operating e
Mississippi Teacher Corps Helps Transform a School Culture
As of Oct. 17, North Panola, which has 392 students, has officially risen in status from a C school to a B school. For an institution that was near failing in 2009, the result is a significant milestone in a district that came out of conservatorship in July 2014. North Panola’s four-year principal Jamone Edwards is quick to praise his staff, especially teachers hailing from the University of Mississippi’s Mississippi Teacher Corps.

Are We Alone?
As far as we know, only one planet has life on it — Earth. But is it really possible that our planet is the only life-bearing planet in the entire universe? Some scientists believe that extraterrestrial life does exist, and some even believe that there may be advanced alien life. In this video segment adapted from NOVA, learn about the search for extraterrestrial intelligence. Closed caption included. Run time 05:51.
