6.021J Quantitative Physiology: Cells and Tissues (MIT)
In this subject, we consider two basic topics in cellular biophysics, posed here as questions: Which molecules are transported across cellular membranes, and what are the mechanisms of transport? How do cells maintain their compositions, volume, and membrane potential? How are potentials generated across the membranes of cells? What do these potentials do? Although the questions posed are fundamentally biological questions, the methods for answering these questions are inherently multidisc

Good Practice Guide in Question and Test Design
This booklet will provide an introduction to good practice in question and test design. It includes the art of using objective tests to assess some aspects of student learning. At the outset you should be aware that objective tests are just one method of assessment. They are useful for assessing knowledge, comprehension and application and in some circumstances can be used to assess higher order skills such as evaluation and synthesis. They cannot be used to assess creativity, integration of ide

Notes on OpenOffice Writer: large and complex documents
This book is about how to use OpenOffice Writer to create large and complex documents. It explains how Writer organises text into paragraphs and pages and shows how styles and formatting control the appearance of the document. It discusses how to create headings, tables, figures, frames and mathematical expression. It discusses how to handle citation and referencing in the three common styles, and shows how to create tables of contents and indices.

The Development and Use of Representations in Teaching and Learning about Problem Solving: Exploring
Tim Boerst has explored instructional approaches that foster the development of representational skill and routine use of multiple representations in problem solving. In particular he has used the 'Rule of 3' (a structure employed in calculus reform materials that highlights the use of numerical, algebraic, and/or graphic representations in mathematical learning) to see whether an emphasis on multiple representations would deepen mathematical learning opportunities for a wide variety of students

Learning to Think Mathematically
Concerned that most students leave college thinking of mathematics as a fixed body of knowledge to be memorized, Cooperstein designed a new course to help students learn to think mathematically for themselves. This website serves as a course portfolio that documents the new class, Introduction to Mathematical Problem Solving. The principal activity in the class involved students working on and discussing novel problems which required them to formulate experiments, work out cases, look for patter
