University of Nottingham, physics and astronomy resources
This is a module framework. It can be viewed online or downloaded as a zip file. As taught in 2007-2008 and 2009-2010. This module introduces mathematical analysis building upon the experience of limits of sequences and properties of real numbers and on calculus. It includes limits and continuity of functions between Euclidean spaces, differentiation and integration. A variety of very important new concepts are introduced by investigating the properties of numerous examples, and developing the a

Laboratory Investigation of Fatty Acid Supplements
This is a laboratory-based investigation of so-called essential fatty acids (e.g. omega-3,6 fatty acids) in supplements. Students carry out extractions and analyse extracts by GC and/or GC/MS. They also carry out small scale derivatisation reactions and purifications. Data is analaysed wuth respect to composition of individual supplements, comparison with packaging information, etc.
Restoring a tooth (Gold Crown) - Part 2
This video shows the second stage of the production of a cast gold crown for a damaged tooth. The wax template of the tooth is sprued using wax wire, then invested in a refractory investment material. The video shows the mould being heated to both expand it and prevent against thermal shock. A centrifugal casting process is shown, using an electrical furnace for melting the gold. From set of videos used in Advanced Restorative Course in School of Clinical Dentistry, The University of Sheffield.
ECorr: Potential Measurement
An important corrosion property often measured in the lab and field is the potential of an electrode. This case study gives an overview of how and why this is done as well as giving insight into how to interpret the measurements. This is an introductory level case study.
ECorr: Cathodic Protection
This case study presents an investigation into the corrosion protection of a steel oil platform submerged in sea water. Cathodic protection is highlighted as the most economic and the implementation of a cathodic protection system is explored in detail. This is an advanced level case study.

You could use templates to begin the process of reflection. Here is a two stage template you can modify for your own use; Stage 1: A very personal consideration of events etc. You may only want to keep this for yourself to see. Stage 2: Translating your feeling and thoughts into a record that can be shown to others together with extended analysis. The entries do not need to be large but related to the topic.

The OTTER Sami tent OER
This is a reproduction of the Second Life Sami tent and is for free distribution within Second Life as a repurposable OER. It is available in two clearly identified forms: 1. As a single SL artefact, where all discrete items have been linked together to make a whole. 2. As a number of discrete SL artefacts. In addition, this OER includes two SL training guides: one for students and one for tutors. Users are encouraged to first read the 'Handout for the Sami tent OER' .

The Economic Meltdown: What Have We Learned, if Anything?
The U.S. has had more than 70 years to come to terms with the Great Depression, and we really thought we knew how to avoid another one, says Paul Krugman. “It wasn’t supposed to be possible. Then came the current crisis.”
So how to explain the Great Recession of 2008? Krugman suggests a combination of factors: Fi
