Satellite Insight App for iOS
'A sea of critical real-time weather data floods into the satellite’s memory grid. A storm full of tornadoes is brewing! The sun is about to blast out a huge solar flare that could destroy satellites! To save lives and protect expensive instruments, the GOES-R weather satellite must not lose any of the data it is collecting. You can help! Bundle like data types together and store them safely before the data grid overflows.In Satellite Insight, colored blocks falling into columns on a grid
Sound Note App for iOS
'SoundNote is the best way to take notes in meetings, lectures, and interviews. It tracks what you type and draw while recording audio, so you'll never worry about missing an important detail. During playback, just tap a word: SoundNote will jump right to the proper time in the audio.• Use SoundNote's powerful drawing tool for quick sketches. It's easy to edit them, too. Tap a drawing to select it, or tap twice to select an individual stroke. From there, you can drag it to wherever you want
Rodent Models of Obesity-Reductionist Approaches to Understanding the Basis of a Complex Human Trait

Mid-level spreadsheeting and complex modeling of real-world scarp evolution
This lab activity is a familiarization exercise in spreadsheet modeling, and is also a mathematical model for slope evolution. It aims to familiarize students with moderately complex Excel manipulations, reinforce good technical graphical techniques, and introduce basic mathematical modeling of natural systems. This exercise is designed for an upper-level undergraduate geomorphology course. Learning goals, context for use, teaching tips, materials, assessment tips and related resources are provi
Star Library: Random Rendezvous
This activity leads students to appreciate the usefulness of simulations for approximating probabilities. It also provides them with experience calculating probabilities based on geometric arguments and using the bivariate normal distribution. We have used it in courses in probability and mathematical statistics, as well as in an introductory statistics course at the post-calculus level.

Achieving Affective Impact: Visual Emotive Communication in Lifelike Pedagogical Agents
Lifelike animated agents for knowledge-based learning environments can provide timely, customized advice to support learnersâ problem-solving activities. By drawing on a rich repertoire of emotive behaviors to exhibit contextually appropriate facial expressions and emotive gestures, these agents could exploit the visual channel to more effectively communicate with learners. To address these issues, this article proposes the emotive-kinesthetic behavior sequencing framework for dynamically seque
Towards an Open Grid Marketplace Framework for Resources Trade
A challenge of Grid computing is to provide automated support for the creation and exploitation of virtual organisations (VOs), involving individuals and different autonomous organizations, to which resources are pooled from potentially diverse origins. In the context of the presented work, virtual organizations trade grid resources and services according to economic models in electronic marketplaces. Thus in this paper we propose GRIMP (Grid Marketplace), a generic framework that provides servi
Internet Scout Project
Clay Mathematics Institute (CMI) sponsors the Clay Mathematics Research Academy to "inspire young people with the thrill of working on the frontiers of mathematical research." Each year, twelve high school students are recruited and a Colloquium is held at CMI headquarters in Cambridge, Massachusetts. After the intense 8-day seminar, participants continue their work using iResearch, a web-based collaborative tool suite designed by the Academy. The 2004 Academy Colloqium Series was held March 19
An Approach to Analyzing the Role and Structure of Reflective Dialogue
Several intelligent tutoring systems contain modules that support reflection after practice exercises. However, there is very little research on reflective dialogue and its relation to dialogue during problem solving that can guide this effort. The approach to analyzing educational dialogue described in this paper was developed to address this problem. Using statistical and machine learning methods, we compared the frequency and structure of speech acts by avionics students and experts during pr
Algebra For the Real World
Students will solve real world and mathematical problem situations using simple algebraic concepts including variables and open sentences.
A Computational Introduction to Number Theory and Algebra
A book introducing basic concepts from computational number theory and algebra, including all the necessary mathematical background.
Grade 4 Math Revision Test I
This module revises a variety of mathematical skills: basic operations, weights, measures and money are all revised. Some emphasis is placed on applied maths, and especially on introductory fractions.
Sixty-one questions taken from the areas of 'language and reasoning', 'mathematical skills', 'space and logic', 'general knowledge'.
The use case specification of actions in the goal oriented knowledge based learning environment
The proposed goal oriented knowledge acquisition and assessment are based on the flexible educational model and allows to implement an adaptive control of the enhanced learning process according to the requirements of student's knowledge level, his state of cognition and subject learning history. The enhanced learner knowledge model specifies how the cognition state of the user will be achieved step by step. The use case actions definition is a starting point of the specification that depends o
Social Capital and the Distribution of Household Income in the United States: 1980, 1990, and 2000
Social capital is a person or group's sympathy or sense of obligation for another person or group. The objects of sympathetic feelings have social capital. Those holding sympathetic feelings for others provide social capital. Because social capital providers internalize the consequences of their choices, they trade with each other on different terms and at different levels that would occur in arm's length transactions, all other things equal. But changes in the terms and level of trade al
