Basic Political Concepts
The goal of BASIC POLITICAL CONCEPTS is to provide exactly what the title suggests: a small set of carefully defined and interrelated words that can be used to describe and analyze a wide range of political phenomena and issues.
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.
In this hands-on OLogy activity, kids learn about matter by building their own models of carbon out of pipe cleaners, wire, and clay. The activity begins with a kid-friendly introduction to matter, elements, and atoms. The illustrated, step-by-step directions show kids how to use the information about carbon on the Periodic Table to create a mobile that shows the element's basic structure. A PDF version of the Periodic Table, along with a kid-friendly overview of how to read it, is also included
Algebra.help - Simplifying expressions/equations with exponents

15.402 Finance Theory II (MIT)
The objective of this course is to learn the financial tools needed to make good business decisions. The course presents the basic insights of corporate finance theory, but emphasizes the application of theory to real business decisions. Each session involves class discussion, some centered on lectures and others around business cases.
Radiology Lab 0: Introduction to 2D and 3D Imaging
This is a self-directed learning module to introduce students to basic concepts of imaging technology as well as to give students practice going between 2D and 3D imaging using everyday objects.
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.
A Robot in Kindergarten
These thought are the result of work in progress, started in 1999, within the scope of the Trás-os-Montes Digital/SCETAD, project (sub-project: ICEI – Computers in Early Childhood Education Contexts). The work took place in Portuguese kindergarten rooms, with children aged 3, 4, 5 and 6. The ICEI sub-project aims to promote the use of ICT in a playful but pedagogical way, be it free or directed. This use is intended to occur within the scope of activities developed for the micro-spaces of the
Go with the Flow
Students gain an understanding of the difference between electrical conductors and insulators, and experience recognizing a conductor by its material properties. In a hands-on activity, students build a conductivity tester to determine whether different objects are conductors or insulators. In another activity, students use their understanding of electrical properties to choose appropriate materials to design and build their own basic circuit switch.
Take Off with Paper Airplanes
This lesson introduces students to the art of designing an airplane through paper airplane constructions. The goal is that students will learn important aircraft design considerations and how engineers must iterate their designs to achieve success. Students first follow several basic paper airplane models, after which they will then design their own paper airplane. They will also learn how engineers make models to test ideas and designs.
Students learn about applied forces as they create pop-up-books the art of paper engineering. They also learn the basic steps of the engineering design process.
Students learn basic marketing concepts and use professional marketing techniques to compose an advertisement for a hybrid vehicle. In the process, they learn the principles of comparative analysis.
Carbon Dioxide Uptake in Plants: A Computer-Aided Experimental System
This exercise introduces students to concepts of photosynthesis at the whole organism level and to computer utilization in biology. Changes in carbon dioxide concentration are measured in environmental chambers using gas analyzers connected to computers. Carbon dioxide changes are graphed in real time as the plants take up CO2. Over a short time, sunflower seedlings show dramatic changes in CO2 uptake when light intensity is altered or color filters are used. Comparison of the resulting graphs w
The Wine simulation allows you to model the fermentation process and explore variables and their effects on winemaking. Students can probe the basic fermentation process. Enhancements such increased alcohol tolerance in cultivated yeasts used in modern wine making can be explored as well.
Basic Math Facts Fluency
Every math teacher struggles to find ways to encourage students to master their basic facts. Whether for addition and subtraction facts or for multiplication and division facts, teachers collect many ideas from which they can draw activities to meet the varied needs of learners in their classes. Games and Who Has? activities are especially motivational and continual play can help students develop fact fluency in an effort to master the games and capture the most points.
Acids, Bases, and Salts
Basic overview of the characteristics of acids, bases, and salts. Color and sound. Run time 01:25.
Measuring Health Disparities
Measuring Health Disparities is designed to be accessible to a broad audience of practitioners across all sectors of the public health workforce. In contains audio and interactive elements and focuses on some basic issues for public health practice - how to understand, define, and measure health disparity. The material is divided into four parts. Parts One and Two review what health disparities are, how they are defined, and provide and overview of common issues faced in measuring health dispar
Musculoskeletal, Fall 2007
This sequence provides foundational basic science knowledge of the musculoskeletal system, integrated with clinical relevance.
Water In Africa
is designed to help students learn important knowledge and skills in geography, language arts, and other disciplines by studying the use of water in 24 African countries. This website features online lessons developed by teachers and built around 600 photos and 300 anecdotes from Peace Corps volunteers in Africa. Photos and anecdotes may also be browsed by country, with basic country information and maps provided.
