Human Sciences Symposium 2011: The Impact of Exceptional Early Cognitive Environments on Musical Dev
This presentation by Prof. Adam Ockelford was delivered at the 2011 Human Sciences Symposium on The Musical Brain held on 26 February in Oxford. It focuses on case studies of blind and autistic children.
Professor Mark Behrens reviews in more detail and touches on key elements of his research that the students in video (Student Presentation #5) discussed. In describing his work, Behrens offered "think of looking through color filters." The filters eliminate any unnecessary or unforeseeable data, and when you combine all the filters together, the yield reveals amazing overlaps and patterns.
Homework Help - How to improve study habits
This interview stresses some basics of helping students get organized such as finding a place to work that is well equipped, best times to do homework, talking to teacher about time to do homework, and the importance of a structure including time limits. Also mentioned not correcting homework so that the teacher knows what needs to be reviewed. The video is about five minutes and well worth showing.

Physics of Roller Coasters
Students explore the physics utilized by engineers in designing today's roller coasters, including potential and kinetic energy, friction, and gravity. First, students learn that all true roller coasters are completely driven by the force of gravity and that the conversion between potential and kinetic energy is essential to all roller coasters. Second, they also consider the role of friction in slowing down cars in roller coasters. Finally, they examine the acceleration of roller coaster cars a
