No idea how relational database systems are constructed? Did you know that they underpin the majority of the managed data storage in computer systems? This unit has been designed to give you an overview of the developmental lifecycle for a database system, explaining the importance of data analysis and highlighting how database development differs from traditional software development.
LaTeX template for VIGRE modules: general guidelines
This report summarizes work done as part of Rice University's VIGRE program. VIGRE is a program of Vertically Integrated Grants for Research and Education in the Mathematical Sciences under the direction of the National Science Foundation. A PFUG is a group of Postdocs, Faculty, Undergraduates and Graduate students formed round the study of a common problem. This module describes a LaTeX template that PFUGs can use to draft research reports that can be readily imported into Connexions.
Welcome to the New Normal
Scripps Oceanography research suggests that climate change will require a complete rethinking of water delivery systems in the West. That'll be step one.
AE CS5.5: 3D Camera Depth of Field Utilities
After Effects CS5.5 sports several new tools that automatically sets a 3D camera's depth of field focal plane to align with chosen objects inside your 3D worlds.
Models are mechanisms for communication. This unit looks at what a model is and what the process of modelling is about. The techniques discussed here are applicable to a wide range of systems and have one thing in common: they are all commonly used diagramming techniques. The five techniques are: data flow diagrams, use case modelling, activity diagrams, entity–relationship diagrams and state machines.

But a long tradition of ancient Greek philosophers, beginning with Socrates, made their philosophies also com
Building Roller Coasters
Students build their own roller coasters using pipe insulation and marbles, and then analyze them using principles of physics. They examine conversions between kinetic and potential energy and frictional effects to design roller coasters that are completely driven by gravity. A class competition is then held to determine the most innovative and successful roller coasters.

Water Is for Fighting Over
Along the parched California-Nevada border, various groups with compelling yet competing interests claim the water of the Truckee River Basin. The burgeoning Reno-Sparks area needs water to sustain the community, but high levels in a local reservoir are destroying the cui-ui fish of a local Paiute tribe. Farmers need irrigated water for crops, but the government seeks water further downstream for a wetlands area. These conflicts illustrate how scarce natural resources can shape a community. (26:
