"Introduction to Women's and Gender Studies, Fall 2007"
" This course offers an introduction to Women's and Gender Studies, an interdisciplinary academic field that asks critical questions about the meaning of gender in society. The primary goal of this course is to familiarize students with key issues, questions and debates in Women's and Gender Studies scholarship, both historical and contemporary. Gender scholarship critically analyzes themes of gendered performance and power in a range of social spheres, such as law, culture, work, medicine and t
The Scientific Method: An Introduction Using Reaction Time
Reaction time has many advantages for the introduction of the scientific method--the subject is familiar, many experiments are possible, and students enjoy competition. In our Introductory Biology courses, our students formulate and test a hypothesis about reaction time. We use Kosinski's Reaction Time software, that records reaction times and then analyzes them statistically using the chi-square median test. Students then write a paper that either rejects or fails to reject their null hypothesi
Silverlight TV 73: What's New in MVVM Light
Laurent Bugnion of IdentityMine appears on the show to discuss his latest additions to the MVVM Light toolkit for both Silverlight, WPF, and Windows Phone. Laurent covers several new features, including IoC (Inversion of Control) containers, new ways to implement INotifyPropertyChanged using lambdas and/or reflection, and changes to the Messenger class.
Mount Tempura: Potential Volcanic Eruption Analysis
This three minute shows how scientist think that Mount Tempura will throw so much ash into the air when it erupted that it could change the earth's climate. Yellowstone National Park is a huge volcano that
explodes every 600,000 years. The last time it blew was 640,000 years ago. This is a good video to show students to show how volcanic eruptions impact the Earth.

"The Society of Mind, Spring 2007"
" This course is an introduction to a theory that tries to explain how minds are made from collections of simpler processes. The subject treats such aspects of thinking as vision, language, learning, reasoning, memory, consciousness, ideals, emotions, and personality. Ideas incorporate psychology, artificial intelligence, and computer science to resolve theoretical issues such as whole vs. parts, structural vs. functional descriptions, declarative vs. procedural representations, symbolic vs. con
Student leaders make impact in tornado affected area
A group of 60 Auburn students recently took part in the LeaderShape Institute at the 4-H Center in Columbiana. As a part of the experience, the students visited Pratt City, a Birmingham suburb and one of the areas hit hardest by the April 27 tornadoes. A number of the students who participated in the program are from the Birmingham area and were deeply moved by the devastation they witnessed.
SFU Track and Field
Brit Townsend, Adam Reid and Helen Crofts express their excitement on being accepted into the NCAA.
Drum Roll Please Activity
This activity develops the real-world connections and relationships between the rock properties found in Lesson 5 and the important engineering properties for designing and building caverns (or tunnels, mines, building foundations, etc.). The student teams will use importance factors called "desirability points" to mathematically determine the overall best rocks to build caverns within.
Preparation and Presentation of Biology Laboratory Class Materials Through WebCT
An introduction to optimizing materials for web presentation: postscripting to PDF, animated graphics, still graphics, font type and size. These materials, among others, are used to demonstrate the creation of a WebCT course site. WebCT is a server-based course management software application. Through a very specific (and thoroughly, yet simply explained) set of steps, faculty place html, text files, graphics files, etc. into what is essentially an on-line course. That 'course' allows you to pla
Physicians can easily tell if you are a smoker by how your lungs look. Normal lungs are red or pink and fluid-looking. Smokers have blackened lungs that are drier than normal lungs. Tumors may develop from continued tobacco use-these appear as white masses.
Population Structures and Cohorts
This module provides a gentle introduction to the use of WebCHIP software and census data to investigate basic population issues. In the first part of this module, you will use data from the 1990 U.S. census to create population pyramids for several racial and ethnic groups. These population pyramids provide the ability to view the age and sex structure of a population.
Hurricane Gert from TRMM: September 16, 1999
A fly-in to Hurricane Gert on September 16, 1999, showing the three-dimensional structure of the precipitation as measured by the Precipitation Radar instrument on TRMM. In this animation, a surface of constant precipitation is colored by the value of the precipitation on the ground under the surface. The global cloud cover data was measured by GOES.
