Internet Scout Project
The "Earth Observing System (EOS) Aura is a NASA mission to study the Earth's ozone, air quality, and climate" by researching the composition, chemistry, and dynamics of the Earth's atmosphere. Visitors can learn how Aura is investigating three questions: Is the Earth's ozone layer recovering? Is air quality getting worse? How is Earth's climate changing? Researchers can find extensive details about the flight, spacecraft devices and specifications, and the data processing and validation. Visito

Encylcopedia of Laser Physics and Technology
This is a comprehensive encyclopedia that provides a brief definition or explanation of a keyword term or principle of laser physics and technology. The site is organized so that one can click on an alphabet letter to get a listing of keywords or terms for searching. This site will be useful for novices in the field and anyone who needs a refresher or reminder of terms and definitions. Most useful to upper division undergrads, graduate students and practitioners who need to learn terms to naviga
Middle School Portal: Math and Science Pathways (MSP2)
This challenge asks students to determine possible ways for combining stamps costing 15 and 33 cents to total 1 dollar 77 cents. It notes that this type of problem is similar to a process used for creating security codes. This online student activity is part of the Figure This! collection of 80 mathematical challenges. Students are encouraged to make a chart as they explore possible number combinations. The answer page describes and illustrates four different approaches to finding the solution,
Guidelines for Teaching Middle and High School Students to Read and Write Well
Most classroom teachers work hard planning lessons, choosing materials, teaching classes, working with individual students, and assessing student progress. Yet some schools and teachers seem to be more successful than others. What makes the difference? This booklet is designed for middle and high school teachers and administrators who wish to improve their English programs. Guidelines for Teaching Middle and High School Students to Read and Write Well draw upon a series of research reports and c

Morphological variation of the proximal femur in selected skeletal remains
The purpose of this thesis is to examine the structural variation of the proximal femur in human skeletal samples. The goal was to investigate and further describe the morphology of the proximal femur through quantitative observation. Subsets of measurements were used to calculate platymeric indices, which demonstrate the presence or absence of platymeria in a population. Metric analyses of the femur were also used to study size and shape differences in populations for indications of sexual dimo
Reassessment of intra- and extra-ovarian expression of growth differentiation factor-9
Mammalian ovarian organogenesis is characterized temporally by oogonial mitosis, oogonial apoptosis, rescue of germ cells via interaction with somatic cells to form primordial follicles, and entrance into meiosis. Recent studies suggest that germ cell’s activity participate in this process via the production of local regulatory factors. Growth differentiation factor-9 (GDF-9), a novel transforming growth factor-family member, is expressed in ovaries of various species as a crucial factor in ov
The effects of phonotactic and orthotactic probabilities on orthographic fast-mapping in kindergarte
The purpose of this study was to investigate how the linguistic components of phonotactic and orthotactic probability affected children’s ability to fast-map orthographic information and whether orthographic processing explained unique variance on children’s literacy skills above and beyond that of phonological processing. Moreover, the current study examined whether kindergarten children with and without typical language abilities were differentially affected by linguistic processes on read
"These paintings explore a shifting inner world of unnameable familiarity. Through accumulation of paint a direct physical interaction is exposed, between body and canvas, from the slightest stain to violent application. The visceral, physical qualities of body matter are appropriated through paint as substance. A repeated expulsion of paint fuses layers together into a monstrous hybrid. These forms lure the viewer in through delicate detail. What first appears delicately beautiful is exposed
Antarctic Village - Metisse Flag
By way of calling the Orta Antarctic expedition to an end, the artists staged the first in a series of symbolic football games, ‘Heads or Tails, Tails or Heads’. Meteorologists, paleontologists and geologists from the Marambio Antarctic Base joined the Orta team to play a symbolic ‘All Nation’ match. The Metisse Flag and the Antarctic football shirts, created by the artists make it difficult to identify the adversary. The front and back of the players' shirts are stitched together with d
Internet Scout Project
At this website, the Hurricane Hunters promote their work investigating hurricanes by flying "airplanes right into the eye of the hurricane." Visitors can find amazing images of the eye of hurricanes, the crew members, weather, and the plane. During active storms, individuals can find the latest reports by the Hunters and by the National Hurricane Center. The website presents the history of the Hurricane Hunters, which is a Department of Defense organization created in 1944 and is the only assoc

This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file. As taught in 2007-2008 and 2009-2010. This module introduces mathematical analysis building upon the experience of limits of sequences and properties of real numbers and on calculus. It includes limits and continuity of functions between Euclidean spaces, differentiation and integration. A variety of very important new concepts are introduced by investigating the properties of numerous examples, and developing the a

Energy Resources: Coal
OpenLearn Resource - Time: 17 hours and Level: Intermediate. Part of S278 - Earth's Physical Resources/Energy: Fosssil fuels, Nuclear and Renewables. During the Industrial Revolution half of the world's coal came from Britain. We still rely heavily on it today to meet our energy needs, but now we input more than we produce. Burning it introduces large amounts of gases into the atmosphere that harm the environment in a variety of ways. In this unit it will become apparent that the most appeali
