Inductive Reasoning, Part 1 of 3
In this video, Sal Khan uses a simple number pattern to help the viewer understand how to use inductive reasoning to figure out what the next number will be. (Because it is a simple number pattern, the viewer will know what the the next number is, but Mr. Khan explains how to answer the mathematical question using inductive reasoning.)Mr. Khan uses the Paint Program (with different colors) to illustrate his points. Sal Khan is the recipient of the 2009 Microsoft Tech Award in Education. (02:0
The Art of Teaching the Arts: Nurturing Independent Thinkers
Arts teachers use formal and informal strategies to assess their students’ progress and to modify their own teaching practice. In this session, participants meet a vocal music teacher who splits his choir into groups that give each other feedback; he also has students tape-record themselves during rehearsal, so he can judge their individual progress. A dance teacher critiques original choreography by a student and asks her peers to participate in the process; this feedback helps the student de
Signals and Systems
Systems realizations. Time and transform domain analysis of discrete-time systems. Vector-space concepts and Fourier series. Fourier transforms in continuous and discrete time. Some lab and computational work required.
History of Utah
This course will cover the history of the State of Utah from its earliest records up to the present. Historical analysis and methodology will also be taught and specific assignments given to help each student understand methodology from within the context of Utah's History.
Lugosi teaches math - Positive series2
Béla Lugosi teaches advanced mathematical concepts in this video. This video shows a variety of tests to prove positive series. He begins with what is called a comparison test and formulates proofs. Lugosi's hidden love for mathematics is illuminated by his animated teaching style. This video is geared to older, advanced mathematics learners.
Exploring Teaching and Learning in Tertiary Contexts
This course enables tertiary educators to explore teaching and learning in tertiary environments. In doing so, they will focus on their own context and anticipated teaching roles. Through the process of critical self-analysis with reference to the qualities of effective tertiary educators, participants will produce a 'teaching capacity enhancement plan' (TCEP). This plan should be developed in collaboration with professional colleagues who are prepared to work alongside you as members of a focus
Cracking Caitlin's Code
This is a creative approach to teaching basic skills involved in the formal visual analysis of works of art. Students will learn how to interpret artworks in cultural and historical contexts by becoming "art detectives." Students will analyze Catlin's formal compositions to learn about the Native American leaders he painted. They will examine visual clues and write a final "case summary" in which they "crack Catlin's code."
The Story of Wakefield
A basic skills learning resource booklet with interactive activities designed to introduce the Wakefield Museum.
Nanomaterials Up Close: Nanoengineered electron guns
In this video we see an electron gun made of many thousands of vertically aligned carbon nanotubes, each more than 1,000 times smaller than the width of a human hair. Dr Matt Cole, from the University of Cambridge, explains the technological importance of exploiting emerging nanomaterials to engineer functionally novel X-ray sources. 'Nanomaterials Up Close' is a special series linked to our 'Under the Microscope' collection of videos produced by Cambridge University that show glimpses of the
Correlates of Desistance
There is no question that life in America has changed drastically in the past fifty years. Given the importance of examining historical change inherent in the life course perspective, it is important to determine how changes in the social structure over time impact individuals. Therefore, the goals of this data analysis exercise are to examine changes in marriage and employment over the last fifty years. The purposes are to identify the changes that have taken place, and to hypothesize how these

Acoustic Remote Sensing and Sea Floor Mapping
The course treats the following topics: - Relevant physical oceanography - Elements of marine geology (seafloor topography, acoustical properties of sediments and rocks) - Underwater sound propagation (ray acoustics, ocean noise) - Interaction of sound with the seafloor (reflection, scattering) - Principles of sonar (beamforming) - Underwater acoustic mapping systems (single beam echo sounding, multi-beam echo sounding, sidescan sonar) - Data analysis (refraction corrections, digital terrain mod
