In this lab, students use dice to simulate radioactive decay. Students create a standard decay curve for a fictional element, calculate the half-life of this element, and, using the information their graph, "date" rocks that contain the new element. The use of dice has some advantages over similar exercises because the half-life is not immediately obvious to students and they will need to experimentally determine it.

Using Melting Ice to Teach Radiometric Dating
In this activity, introductory geology students are challenged to a Sherlock Holmes-style mystery in which they construct their own decay curves of melting ice to determine time-zero. In the process, the analogies to radiometric dating and some elementary thermodynamics are discussed. This website outlines teaching notes and tips, provides a list of necessary and suggested materials, and has additional information about the source of the activity.

This activity leads students through derivations of the equations associated with radiometric dating: the radioactive decay equation, the half-life equation and the age equation. After the equations have been derived, students are asked to apply them to geologic applications. This activity is appropriate for lower division undergraduates. Learning goals, context for use, teaching tips, materials, assessment tips and related resources are provided.

Criminal violence in Cambodia: An historical perspective
Empirical studies and theoretical analyses of long-term trends in criminal violence have been done in western countries but rarely in other parts of the world. The research conducted by Professor Broadhurst and Dr Bouhours attempts to fill this gap through an examination of the evolution of criminal violence in Cambodia from the start of the 20th century to the present. However, different sources and methods of criminal data recording were used between 1900 and 2008. The diversity of the sources
