The Halloween Song Book-Classroom Book Project
This cute video shows a Halloween Classroom Book Project by Mrs. Butkus' class. Young learners will enjoy creating a book like this and learning this "Heidi Songs" Halloween song. The book shows one jack-o-lantern, 2 owls, 3 trick or treaters, 4 cats, and 5 bats. BOO!! (1:27)
Acoustic Approach in Converting Heat to Electricity
A promising approach in converting heat or waste heat to electricity is in using the thermoacoustic effect. When heat generates a temperature gradient along a stack of large-surface area material inside an acoustic resonator, an intense sound can be generated. This type of energy converter, which is a self-sustained oscillator, has been developed so that the sound can be converted inside the unit to electricity using a piezoelectric device. Such devices are simple, and they have essentially no
Super Snackers Make Banana Pops
This cute, short video shows students how to make a healthy snack from bananas, peanut butter, granola, and seeds. This would be a fun activity for home and for school. (1:00)
BIM and Comprehensive Design Studio Education
Building Information Modeling (BIM) has the potential to fundamentally alter the way composition, scale and abstraction are addressed in today?s comprehensive design studio by displacing the primacy of abstract conventions of representation with a methodology based on systems thinking and virtual simulation. BIM viewed as provocateur of design education provides great potential for the critical analysis of how architectural design is taught. The design studio project reflects new ways of teachin
Towards Reforming the International Financial and Monetary Systems [Audio]
Speaker(s): Cardinal Peter Turkson | The current global financial crisis has already continued for six years now – much longer than most feared at the beginning. Moreover, there have been several sequels, the Euro crisis being the most notable. Let us reflect on the surprising technical origins of the crisis and the shocking moral ones. Let us ask what the system has learned, what insights have been acted upon, what reform is underway. And let us explore areas that remain to be reformed, in pa
Pass Over Eastern Asia to Philippine Sea and Guam
This pass begins over Mongolia, looking towards the Pacific Ocean, China, and Japan. As the video progresses, you can see major cities along the coast and the Japanese islands on the Philippine Sea. The island of Guam can be seen further down the pass into the Philippine Sea, and the pass ends just to the east of New Zealand. A lightning storm can be seen as light pulses near the end of the video.
Learning outcomes By the end of this unit you should be able to: explain the meanings of the emboldened terms and use them appropriately; describe the behaviour of wave packets when they encounter potential energy steps, barriers and wells; describe how stationary-state solutions of the Schrödinger equation can be used to analyse scattering and tunnelling; for a range of simple potential energy functions, obtain the solution of the time-independent Sc
