Amazing Earth 2
A documentary about volcanic eruptions.
A semaphorin code defines subpopulations of spinal motor neurons during mouse development.
In the spinal cord, motor neurons (MNs) with similar muscle targets and sensory inputs are grouped together into motor pools. To date, relatively little is known about the molecular mechanisms that control the establishment of pool-specific circuitry. Semaphorins, a large family of secreted and cell surface proteins, are important mediators of developmental processes such as axon guidance and cell migration. Here, we used mRNA in situ hybridization to study the expression patterns of semaphorins

This course treats various methods to design and analyze datastructures and algorithms for a wide range of problems. The most important new datastructure treated is the graph, and the general methods introduced are: greedy algorithms, divide and conquer, dynamic programming and network flow algorithms. These general methods are explained by a number of concrete examples, such as simple scheduling algorithms, Dijkstra, Ford-Fulkerson, minimum spanning tree, closest-pair-of-points, knapsack, and B
Mathematics Framework for the 2009 National Assessment of Educational Progress
This is an assessment framework, not a curriculum framework. In broad terms, this framework attempts to answer the question: What mathematics should be assessed in 2009 on NAEP at grades 4, 8 and 12? The answer to this question must necessarily take into account the constraints of a large-scale assessment such as NAEP, with its limitations on time and resources. Of critical importance is the fact that this document does not attempt to answer the question: What mathematics should be taught (or ho

Public Lands: America's Largest Classroom
Are you looking for new ways to increase your students' interest and achievement in science, mathematics, and reading? Is student motivation suffering in your classroom? Why not consider taking your teaching outside? Studies have shown that using the environment as a learning tool not only increases student achievement but also helps students develop lifelong learning skills and a greater sense of respect and responsibility. If this approach sounds intriguing, consider the Hands on the Land prog
