Structure: Three credits. Three lecture hours per week (45 total hours). This is an introduction to the new, rapidly evolving, and interdisciplinary field of Earth System Science. This course emphasizes the ideas of Earth as a planet within the solar system; the interactions among the components of the geosphere, hydrosphere, atmosphere, and biosphere; and global changes. Studying Earth as a system is accomplished by the analysis of remote sensing data. Images acquired by airborne and spaceborn

With Dr. Marta Civil. As teachers, we often make assumptions about the knowledge children are exposed to at home. Sometimes it seems that we focus on only reading and writing,Dr. Civil contends that we need to look more carefully at the mathematical potential of the home and that it is essential that schools learn to be more flexible and knowledgeable about students home environments. See and hear from Dr. Civil, the teachers she works with, and a long-standing parent mathematics group, and fo
The Introductory Economics course is a collection of online experiments and related on-line workbooks which can be used by individual learners or to supplement an instructor lead course. In each experiment a student is an active participant attempting to make deals with other traders in a market. After each experiment, the data the students generated is stored and the student will use this data to complete an online workbook. The workbook guides the student through the analysis and much of the e
We learn how to foster and appreciate students notations for their richness and creativity. We also look at some of the possibilities that early work in creating notation systems might open up for students as they move on toward algebra.,15 min. Pizzas in the Classroom In Englewood, New Jersey, Blanche Young, who attended the summer workshop, tries out one of the problems with her fourth-grade students. Later, she meets with Arthur Powell to discuss the lesson. 5 min. New Brunswick, New Jersey
Several activities are included to teach and research the differences between renewable and non-renewable resources and various energy resources. The students work with a quantitative, but simple model of energy resources to show how rapidly a finite, non-renewable energy sources can be depleted, whereas renewable resources continue to be available. The students then complete a homework assignment or a longer, in-depth research project to learn about how various technologies that capture energy

The goal of this activity is to understand how techniques of persuasion (including background, supporting evidence, storytelling and the call to action) are used to develop an argument for or against a topic. Students develop an environmental case study for presentation and understand how a case study is used as an analysis tool.
INSEAD Professor of Organisational Behaviour Herminia Ibarra, winner of the 2013 Thinkers50 "Leadership Award", discusses effective leadership styles and why managers need to be fluent in several styles.
Students learn basic marketing concepts and use professional marketing techniques to compose an advertisement for a hybrid vehicle. In the process, they learn the principles of comparative analysis.
In this activity, students read graphs and interpret raw data to determine if there is a correlation between drinking soda and the rate of bone fractures in teenage girls. The activity is part of the Figure This! collection of 80 online mathematical challenges emphasizing real world uses of mathematics. Students are encouraged to organize data into tables to look for associations, but are cautioned that additional factors many influence the appearance of cause and effect. In other related math q
This activity challenges students to determine which is worth more today, Babe Ruth's 1927 home-run record-breaking ball or Mark McGwire's 70th home-run record-breaking ball that sold in 1999 for 3 million dollars. The activity is part of the Figure This! collection of 80 online mathematical challenges emphasizing real-world uses of mathematics. To solve this challenge, students build a table and observe the growth pattern as the value of Ruth's ball doubles every seven years. The activity's web
This online activity challenges students to explore the relationship between the number of triangles and the sum of the triangle perimeters in each of the first three iterations of the Sierpinski triangle fractal. The activity is one of 80 mathematical challenges featured on the Figure This! web site. In this activity, students are encouraged to use two problem-solving strategies: investigate a simpler problem and make a chart. For other sections of the activity, students find the general rule f
We introduce superfields in chapter 2 for the simpler world of three spacetime dimensions, where superfields are very similar to ordinary fields. We skip the discussion of nonsuperspace topics (background fields, gravity, etc.) which are covered in following chapters, and concentrate on a pedagogical treatment of superspace. We return to four dimensions in chapter 3, where we describe how supersymmetry is represented on superfields, and discuss all general properties of free superfields (and the
This site presents a description and analysis of the historical setting and the social, economic, political, and national security systems and institutions of countries throughout the world. It examines the interrelationships of those systems and the ways they are shaped by cultural factors. At present, 101 countries and regions are covered.
