Earth Rotation from Galileo Imagery: 3600 x Real-Time
This animation is one in a series created to show an accurate representation of the Earths rotation at different temporal resolutions. The animation is created from images taken by the Galileo spacecraft during a close pass of the Earth on December 11-12, 1990. The animations range from real-time, in which no rotation can be perceived, to 3600 times real-time, in which both the Earths rotation and cloud motion can bee seen. The series also includes an animation in which the Earths rotation has b
TRMM Rainmap for September 1998: Africa
Monthly average rainfall over Africa for September 1998 as measured by TRMM. High rainfall rates are in red.
TOMS Ozone at the South Pole: September Averages from 1979 through 2000
The year 2000s Antarctic ozone hole is the largest ever observed. Scientists continue to investigate the phenomenon, and are somewhat surprised by its scale. Using data from NASAs Total Ozone Mapping Spectrometer (TOMS) instrument onboard the Earth Probe satellite, researchers can evaluate and compare current conditions over the south pole to readings taken by other instruments in years past. Continued monitoring of polar ozone levels helps researchers gain a better understanding of how the plan
NASA CONNECT Who Added the Micro to Gravity?
In NASA CONNECT Who Added the Micro to Gravity?, students will learn about microgravity. They will be introduced to combustion science and the importance of fire safety on the International Space Station. Students will also learn how chemistry plays an important role in microgravity research. They will observe NASA engineers and scientists using measuring, ratios, and graphing to analyze data. Grades 6-8.
The Visual Datasets text module discusses the concept of visual learning and presents some suggestions for ways to design learning environments that support students in developing visual literacy skills. Three visual datasets that can be used for problem solving activities in evolution, classification, development, and botany are included: Caminacules: A dataset of imaginary animals that can be used as the basis for a variety of problem-posing and problem-solving activities in evolution, classi
Module 5: Selecting Payment Methods
Select appropriate methods, terms, and currency of payment to agents, sales representatives, distributors, suppliers, and international joint ventures. MSU Global has teamed with experts in the international finance field to create resources to help increase international skills in the business community. These materials address the need of the international trade practitioner for knowledge and information that is specific to trade finance by providing a means for educators and business practit
QM Eigenstate Superposition Demo Model
The EJS QM Eigenstate Superposition Demo model displays the time dependence of a variety of superpositions of energy eigenfunctions for the infinite square well and harmonic oscillator potentials. One of the eleven pre-set superpositions can be selected via a drop-down menu with the resulting wave function shown in phase-as-color representation. A table of the expansion coefficients is shown and can be edited. The width of the infinite square well potential can be changed via a slider.
"When You Subtract with a Pirate"- Single-Digit Subtraction
This computer-animated video features a narrator reading story problems about pirates which require single-digit subtraction to solve. Each problem is shown along with illustrations to help students visualize the problem. ( 4:34)
Bufo arenarum embryos
Stage of muscular response, about 96 hrs. post fertilization.
A special report on pensions
People in rich countries are living longer. Without big reforms they will not be able to retire in comfort, says Philip Coggan
STS-134 Daily Mission Recap - Flight Day 9
A video recap of flight day 9 of the STS-134 mission of space shuttle Endeavour to the International Space Station.
Paper Airplane Flight Around Corridors
An indoor paper airplane walk-along glider is flown down several corridors. A sheet of clear plastic manipulated by the pilot creates a wave of rising air under the plane. This video could benefit from some commentary concerning the aerodynamics of the paper airplane. (01:01)
Secret Agent Coins- Matching Descriptions to Coins
In this animated video, students match descriptions to the coins they describe. The descriptions are the coin worth one cent, twenty-five cents, smallest in size, and picturing Thomas Jefferson. The detective's voice is difficult to understand in parts. ( 2:24)
European Heart Journal - My Cardio Interview: Domenico Corrado & Chris Schmied on Marathon running
Domenico Corrado in conversation with Chris Schmied: The Marathon-run - a supraphysiological strain
グループ学習により，ビジネス情報システムという枠組みで，情報システムの開発に関するプロジェクトを遂行する。具体的には，発想支援ツールの利用やメタファーの利用，ワークデザイン，ソフトシステムズアプローチ，などの問題設定とその定式化の仕方について学ぶ。 注：授業は原則として偶数年度は英語，奇数年度は日本語で行う。 Associate Professor SENOO Dai, Pro
Forces and Graphing
This activity can be used to explore forces acting on an object, to practice graphing experimental data, and/or to introduce the algebra concepts of slope and intercept of a line. A wooden 2x4 beam is set on top of two scales. Students learn how to conduct an experiment by applying loads at different locations along the beam, recording the exact position of the applied load and the reaction forces measured by the scales at each end of the beam. In addition, students will analyze the experiment d
Students are introduced to the circulatory system, the heart, and blood flow in the human body. Through guided pre-reading, during-reading and post-reading activities, students learn about the circulatory system's parts, functions and disorders, as well as engineering medical solutions. By cultivating literacy practices as presented in this lesson, students can improve their scientific and technological literacy.
The Strongest Pump of All
In this lesson the students will learn how the heart functions. Students will be introduced to the concept of action potential generation. The lesson will explain how action potential generation causes the electrical current that causes muscle contraction in the heart. Students will be introduced to the basic electrical signal generated by the heart; P, QRS, and T waves. The lesson will approach the heart from an engineering standpoint and encourage students to design ways to improve heart funct
