Why Polar Bears Don't Eat Penguins (Beyond Penguins and Polar Bears Podcast Episode 2)
Dr. Ross MacPhee, curator and researcher at the American Museum of Natural History discusses mammals in this episode. Dr. MacPhee provides content background on the mammals, both past and present of the polar regions, and defines some basic ideas on Arctic mammals, as well as current means of studying mammals in the field.
The E Pluribus Unum Project
This site examines Americans' attempt to make one from many in three pivotal decades: the 1770s, 1850s, and 1920s. Each decade is framed by an introductory essay with links to key topics and primary documents, including the Declaration of Independence, newspapers, and the rhetoric of the Revolution; reform, cultures of the North and South, religion, and popular movements; and prohibition, Broadway, evangelical Protestantism, and the Roaring Twenties. The exhibits and projects on this site invite
"Introduction to Education: Understanding and Evaluating Education, Spring 2009"
" This class uses K-12 classroom experiences, along with student-centered classroom activities and student-led classes, to explore issues in schools and education. Students in this course spend time each week observing pre-college math and science classes. Topics of study include design and implementation of curriculum, addressing the needs of a diversity of students, standards in math and science, student misconceptions, methods of instruction, the digital divide, teaching through different med
In Search of Cosmic Rays
These interactive lessons teach about Cosmic Rays by emphasizing the mystery that Cosmic Rays presented to early scientists. The scientific inquiries and investigations that Cosmic Rays prompted are interesting and important to understanding the way science works. Cosmic Rays are now being studied at research sites around the world. Much has been learned from early experiments and even more is being discovered with modern experiments, but many questions have yet to be answered.
Remembering Jim Crow
Remembering Jim Crow is a companion to a radio documentary, and examines the system that, for much of the 20th century, barred many African Americans from their rights as U.S. citizens. Read personal histories of segregation. See a sampling of Jim Crow laws. Learn how African Americans fought economic hardships imposed by Jim Crow and how they built social institutions to combat segregation.
Korea: The Unfinished War
To fully grasp the ongoing tensions between the United States and North Korea, it is important to understand the war that ended fifty years ago this summer. John Biewen and Stephen Smith of American RadioWorks examine the often-overlooked war that helped define global politics and American life for the second half of the 20th century.
Physics to Go
Physics to Go is a collection of websites where you can learn physics on your own, through games, webcasts, and online exhibits and activities. Also included are physics on the road programs, which bring demonstration shows, and in some cases hands-on activities, to you, the audience. To find the resources you want, you can browse the collection and search our database by content topic, resource type, and grade level. We encourage your involvement in Physics To Go. Once you have registered and
Thinking About Politics: American Government in Associational Perspective
The goal of this textbook is to provide students with a comprehensive survey of the American political system and with a framework for analyzing its processes and functions. It will appeal to instructors of introductory American government courses who wish to take students beyond a traditional institutional orientation. Throughout the text, the various dimensions of American politics are integrated into an analytical framework designed to stimulate thoughtful understanding of the political world
15 Feb 2011: U.S. Human Spaceflight: Continuity and Stability
On Feb. 1, 2010, the Obama administration announced its plan to develop a new commercial manned spaceflight capability; NASA subsequently awarded $50 million in grants to five private firms as a first step to implement the vision of turning over space transportation to the commercial sector. Virginia A. Barnes, president and CEO of United Space Alliance, and George Jeffs, a member of the Space Shuttle Management Independent Review Team, will lead a panel discussion on the viability of flying the

Digital Filter Structures and Quantization Error Analysis
Practical implementations of digital filters introduce errors due to finite-precision data and arithmetic. Many different structures, both for FIR and IIR filters, offer different trade-offs between computational complexity, memory use, precision, and error. Approximating the errors as additive noise provides fairly accurate estimates of the resulting quantization noise levels, which can be used both to predict the performance of a chosen implementation and to determine the precision needed to m
Digital Filter Design
An electrical engineering course on digital filter design.
Demo for Dummies
This course is designed for dummies to illustrate how even they can add new knowledge and distribute it world wide.
Control Systems Laboratory
This course introduces students to fundamental control systems theory with emphasis on design and implementation. These labs focus on technical implementation issues of classical control theory in the frequency domain and modern control theory in the state-space. Design and implementation for this course is done using National Instruments LabVIEW software and hardware for control and Educational Control Products (ECP) hardware for the plants.

Computational Sciences Lecture Series at UW-Madison
The goal of the Computational Sciences Lecture Series (CSLS) is to bring together researchers from mathematics (pure and applied), computer science, physics, and engineering to promote cross-fertilization between these fields and to establish computational science as an active research discipline at UW-Madison. The CSLS will consist of several half-day meetings during each year, each meeting consisting of three lectures by distinguished researchers, grouped around a common theme.
