England’s Achievement in TIMSS 2007: National Report for England
News reports on December 9th pointed to the high standing of English pupils in recent international mathematics and science tests, with one headline announcing "English children 'best at maths in Europe'". Trends in Mathematics and Science Study (TIMMS) international tests were first carried out in 1995 with pupils of aged ten and fourteen tested in mathematics and science. Tests have been carried out at four year intervals since then, with the previous results stemming from those taken in 20
Proteins and Proteomics
Researchers know it is the proteins made by a cell that determine what that cell does. This session explores the varying complements of proteins and their effects, structures, and interactions within the mechanism of cell function, and introduces the larger picture of proteomics and systems biology.
Cell Biology and Cancer
Cancers result when genes required for normal cell function are mutated and the resulting cells undergo other changes ultimately leading to uncontrolled division. This session reveals new information on normal cell function, proto-oncogenes and tumor suppressor genes and their role in the cell cycle, and current research in drug design for specific cancers.
An Introduction to Integration By Parts
This is a discussion of why integration by parts works and provides an example of using it to find the integral of a non-polynomial function.
These two MIT Museum speakers hope you’ll walk away from their talk with a good case of augmentation envy – or at least a healthy respect for what technology can do for the human body and soul.

China, because of its large population and abundant natural resources, has played a significant role in international affairs since the eighteenth century. However, during its long war with Japan during World War II, China was severely weakened. The Chinese suffered over two million casualties, in addition to significant damage to private property and the nation's infrastructure. The Chinese morale and standard of living were greatly diminished, and China was ripe for a revolution. Mao Tse Tung
This video explains the parallel structure concept and provides many examples. In the video the narrator explains parallel structure means that parts of a sentences that have the same grammatical function and have the same grammatical form. She reviews some correct and incorrect examples.

Ecosystems and populations of organisms within ecosystems function by the principle of balance and flux. Balance can be thought of as a state of equilibrium, or a state of equal changes between two sides. Flux can be thought of as a rate of flow or changes. Even small changes in an ecosystem's or population's balance and flux could lead to disaster.
Scarcity is a function of time, geography
and production. Scarcity and the fear of scarcity have led to war and
slavery. This is a professionally-produced video of good quality.
