TRACE: Still of TRACE Image
Yellow Box around a MOSS patch shown magnified by a factor of about 1.6 in the lower right corner.
Hi-resolution Solar Views from VAULT: Active Region
This movie presents the VAULT imagery in the context of simultaneous multi-mission observations. We zoom-in to a subset of the image which focuses on an active solar region which shows plumes of hot gases rising above the solar surface.
"Modal Logic, Fall 2009"
" This course investigates social conflict and distributional disputes in the public sector. While theoretical aspects of conflict are considered, the focus of the class is on the practice of dispute resolution. Comparisons between unassisted and assisted negotiation are reviewed along with the techniques of facilitation and mediation."
the ethical code of a company
You draw up a summary of the ethical code which a company employs. You assess what is of importance to you personally with regard to an ethical code and whether your buying habits are influenced by it. You conjugate verbs in a sentence.
Making up a folder: Rédiger un dépliant

Het Rode Kruis: in het Frans de werking van het Rode Kruis begrijpen
Op het einde van deze les kun je vragen over het Rode Kruis beantwoorden.
This project addresses Kindergarten Standard 2: Students will sort and classify objects as well as recognize and create simple patterns. Objective 2b Duplicate and extend simple repeating patterns with numbers and shapes. Here are some fun pattern games that will help you learn how to build on patterns! Cookie Monster needs some help going grocery shopping. Help him finish the food patterns so he can fill up the bags and put them into his grocery cart.
Building Model Solar Cars
You will investigate some of the components that go into designing your own model of a solar car. This is to kindle car design ideas, not limit them.
Soupbox Derby Dataset lesson
Students roll vehicles down and inclined plane placed at various heights and measure distance traveled. Recorded and graphed data reveals an unexpected data trend (due to friction force).
Exploring the Solar System Dataset
Students create a spreadsheet (or use the one provided) to gather planet data and put in categories. They massage spreadsheet to tease out relationship between distance from sun and revolution speed. They use data to predict speed and/or distance for Ceres, the new dwarf planet between Mars and Jupiter.
Phases of the Moon and Tides
Data pattern recognition exercise where students compare the two daily datasets (for one month) to find relationships.
Build-your-own Hardy Weinberg Calculator
Using this lesson worksheet, computers and a simple programming interface, students step through and build a simple program to sequentially calculate all of the variables in the Hardy Weinberg equations. By building the program in sequence it is hoped that students will learn the sequence to solve a Hardy Weinberg problem and appreciate the value and power of computer number crunching capabilities as well as sequential programming considerations.
Hardy Weinberg Calculator Extensions
"Pre" extension - The first extension creates programming to ask the user for values that are needed to figure out the frequency of individuals showing the recessive trait. This is THE one number needed to calculate all the other frequencies. The frequency of individuals showing the recessive trait is the only one that can be observed in a population BUT it is not always given in the word problem. "Post" extension - The second will take the frequencies and apply them to an actual population numb
Build-your-own Valence Finder
By building a program to determine the valence of ANY element on the first three rows of the Periodic table, students learn the steps to solve the problem while learning how to program logic and think about processing data in sequence. NOTE: The worksheet includes the option of letting students create a bug that they have to fix.
