1.5.6 Velocity and acceleration as derivatives
Motion is vital to life, and to science. This unit will help you to understand why classical motion is probably the most fundamental part of physics. You will examine motion along a line and the ways in which such motion can be represented, through the use of graphs, equations and differential calculus.
3.3 Care: a contested word
Care is needed at all stages of life. This unit makes care in the family its focus because the overwhelming majority of care, including health care, is supplied in families, much of it in private, much of it unnoticed and unremarked upon. The meaning of the term (informal carer) and the word (care) itself are explored.

Pacific Temperature Anomalies with Graph
This animation shows the El Nino-La Nina Sea Surface Temperature Anomaly from January 1997 through July 1999. A graph inset shows the global average sea surface temperature fluctuation during this time period.
Markets rise, Greece worry remains
June 29 - Wall Street rallied for a third day as Germany backs Greece's austerity vote, but investors say the chance of a sovereign default, though lower, remains. Conway Gittens reports.
3.4.4 Stress concentration at joint
The I-35W bridge collapse in Minneapolis in August 2007, resulting in at least 13 deaths, illustrates the importance of structural integrity. This unit looks at the investigation that followed the collapse of the Silver Bridge over the Ohio River in 1967 which demonstrates how the study of safe design and the assessment of components and structures under load is of increasing importance in engineering design.
"Media and Methods: Seeing and Expression, Spring 2009"
" This class examines frameworks for making and sharing visual artifacts using a trans-cultural, trans-historical, constructionist approach. It explores the relationship between perceived reality and the narrative imagination, how an author's choice of medium and method of construction constrains the work, how desire is integrated into the structure of a work, and how the cultural/economic opportunity for exhibition/distribution affects the realization of a work. Students submit three papers and

Case Study video - a farmer in Mwingi, called Simon
The case study video of a farmer in Mwingi, called Simon, illustrates various agro-ecological issues. This video is part of the Farmers' Agribusiness training course which has been developed to help both farmers and farmer organisations. Its intention is to provide access to provide access to additional skills and knowledge that will allow farmers to move from a 'farm' to a 'firm'.
Pacific Temperature Anomalies with Color Key

The management of processes or operations is the very essence of any kind of business enterprise, and it is critically important that they are designed and managed well. This course taster uses case studies and models to illustrate the importance of effective operations management and outlines the steps to preparing your own operations proposal.
Microelectronics has enabled designers of integrated circuits to exercise complete control over the electrical characteristics of each component they create. This unit will illustrate how such control is achieved and the various methods that can be applied in differing circumstances.

1.3.7 Diagrams for planning and implementation The first principle in planning is: be clear about your own direction and purpose – in other words, your values and why you are doing anything. You can use the technique of asking why? And then why? of the answer. And then why? of the answer to that. Keep repeating this process until you get back to your underlying values to create an objectives tree or network to help you define the direction in which you wish to go and the steps necessary to get there.

5.6 Vibrating air column
How do different instruments produce the sounds we classify as music? How do we decide whether something – a piano, a vacuum cleaner – is actually a musical instrument? In this unit we investigate the way vibrations and sound waves are harnessed to create music.
