The Evolution of Economic Science: Macroeconomics, Growth, and Development
This panel first looks inward, at the evolution of macroeconomics in the past century, and the emergence of microeconomic foundations in macroeconomics, then shifts outward, to the application of economic analysis to such issues as structural unemployment, the ongoing U.S. recession, and the best ways to help developing nations.
3.4 Growing up with ASD
Follow-up studies of people with ASDs suggest that most have life-long difficulties of some kind. Peeters and Gillberg (1999) estimate that about two thirds of those diagnosed before school age remain dependent on others for support and housing as adults. However, for some individuals at least, the pattern of symptoms changes and becomes less severe with age. Kanner (1973) traced the progress of 96 individuals in their twenties and thirties, whom he had seen as child patients. T

This lecture will explore what a feminist perspective on militarism offers the theorisation of development and underdevelopment. It will highlight some of the ways in which the heavily gendered and hierarchical technologies of power that are the defining features of militarism and military rule have sabotaged longstanding struggles for democratisation and development. It is argued that where contemporary conflicts have been characterised by high levels of civilian casualties and abuse of women,
Classic Sesame Street film-a bee!
This classic Sesame Street video shows real footage of bees on flowers. Some give close ups of bees getting nectar from the flowers. This video is certainly helpful in building background knowledge. This would be beneficial in conjunction with a lesson/unit on flowers and/or bees or as a companion to a story/basal about bees. (1:05)
Dissolved Oxygen Protocol
The purpose of this resource is to measure the amount of oxygen dissolved in water. Students use a dissolved oxygen kit or meter to measure the dissolved oxygen in the water at their hydrology site. The exact procedure depends on the instructions in the dissolved oxygen kit or meter used. The meter requires calibration before use.
General Quiz in Greek
The quiz includes 5 levels of general questions (History, Arts, Athletics, Geography, Sciences, Music). The difficulty of the questions increases depending on the level.

Time Tracker teaches young children how to tell time using an analog clock. There are ten educational levels ranging from simple hour hand manipulation to complex double-digit subtraction. Upper level equations show a deactivated clock representing the "current" time in conjunction with the main active play clock representing the "configurable" time. Time Tracker uses dynamic leveling algorithm to adjust to the child's ability.
Balance Keeper is an educational tool that helps children practice addition, subtraction, logical thinking, and basic algebra. The purpose of the game is to balance the scale by clicking and dragging weights. Complex problems consist of unknown mystery weights. Through deductive reasoning and trial and error techniques, a child can determine these unmarked weights. Balance Keeper implements fifteen skill levels that automatically adjust in difficulty. Mastering all the levels will definitely jum
Heritage: Civilization and the Jews
This lesson plan deals with the Ancient Near East, early civilization, and early Israelite history. Use maps to explore principal geographic features of the region and to trace migration, and compare the biblical story of the flood with a similar account in the Epic of Gilgamesh. All activities focus on key concepts explored in Heritage. Lesson plans have been designed to allow teachers to select activities appropriate to the grade levels of their classes. Each plan includes teacher's resource p

This kid-friendly interactive program - targeted to children from Kindergarten through 3rd grade. Even children can learn about food safety! This important subject has been developed into a fun presentation story in two levels, depending on the age of the children you'll be visiting. Both stories feature that germy culprit of unsafe food practices - BAC. (He's the bad guy – Bacteria.) fightbac.org, the website of the Partnership for Food Safety Education (PFSE), is your resource for Fight BAC!
This lesson introduces an anthropometric measurement system developed to identify and track people in the penal system in late 19th and early 20th century. Students conduct a guided experiment and discussions while collecting anthropometric measurements, exploring the impact of experimental errors in a scientific system, and explaining their observations/findings in writing.
Science and Technology of Mental Illness
This site provides six lessons that help students understand what mental illnesses are. PET images show changes in the brain and how treatment can change activity levels and restore functioning. Case studies and other activities explore differences among illnesses, risk factors, and treatment plan goals. Students develop a brochure to inform people about mental illness.
Counting on Art
In Counting on Art, students will explore the paintings of Horace Pippin and Wayne Thiebaud and the mobiles of Alexander Calder to discover and practice math and visual art concepts.In Pippin's Story, young children (grades K–3) focus on a painting by African American artist Horace Pippin. They will learn how to "read" the clues in a painting and write a story about the work. Students will also solve counting and time problems and create their own "secret number" painting.Calder's Balancing Ac
