Mrs. Matthews Centers for the week of September 27
The students in Mrs. Matthews science class have been studying plants this week. They have been learning the parts of a plant, parts of a flower, parts of a seed, and various jobs a plant has. The students work through six centers throughout the week. The centers include (1) an art activity about pollination (2) an A.R. book about pollination (3) several interactive websites about the growth of plants and how plants respond to light and gravity (4) an art activity about the life cycle of a
The Color Song
This video shows the primary colors and how to spell each color. Students will be engaged by the voice of children their own age. Also the song is simple and can help build associations between the word and the actual color. This is great for a preschool or kindergarten classroom.
Transport of Water and Salts in Plants - Part 1
This is part 1 of a short, animated video (03:37) that offers information about the transport of water and salts in plants from the roots to the stems.
Inside a Solar Cell
In this interactive activity adapted from NOVA Online, learn how a typical photovoltaic cell converts solar energy into electricity. Explore the components of a photovoltaic cell, including the silicon layers, metal backing, antireflective coating, and metal conductor strips. Using animations, investigate why the silicon layers are doped with phosphorous and boron, and how an electric field is used to generate electricity from sunlight. No audio.
The Effects of Green House Gases
Methane, water vapour, nitrous oxide and ozone are the green houses
gases, which exist in the earth’s atmosphere. They absorb thermal
radiations that are breathed out by the earth’s surface and reflect it
back to the earth, thereby serving as a blanket preventing the earth
from heat loss and keeping temperatures constant and perfect for animals
to live, and plants to grow.
For years now, rising temperatures have been a particularly hot topic

Minus 1 Subtraction Facts Presented by Sesame Street
A cartoon peacock demonstrates subtraction when he loses tail feathers. He begins with 5 feathers and loses them one by one. The number sentence presented each time a disaster takes away one of the tail feathers.

Why do more than half of all start-ups fail? Because they bungle their marketing, according to Leonard Lodish, a professor of marketing at Wharton and co-author of two books, Entrepreneurial Marketing and Marketing That Works. "The dogs won't eat the dog food is the way venture capitalists describe it," Lodish says. The key lies in how a marketing plan is crafted. In this installment of the podcast series for the Wharton-CERT Business Plan Competition, Lodish explains that marketing plans must t
This course deals with the biology of cells of higher organisms: The structure, function, and biosynthesis of cellular membranes and organelles; cell growth and oncogenic transformation; transport, receptors, and cell signaling; the cytoskeleton, the extracellular matrix, and cell movements; chromatin structure and RNA synthesis.
Students in Queens' low-residency MFA program talk about their experience with distance learning.
In this activity, users learn about the variables that influence the abundance of phytoplankton, the microscopic plants that form the base of the marine food chain. Users apply this knowledge to make predictions about the timing of the spring phytoplankton bloom in the Gulf of Maine. They obtain and graph data from buoy monitoring stations and interpret them to make their predictions. They check their predictions by examining chlorophyll concentration data at each buoy. Users also compare their
This fourteen-minute video in association with Scholastic, Inc. is a story about a man, who people initially thought was crazy. The partially-animated story is told while the words appear at the bottom of the screen.
Each year we organise a number of free one-day events and summer schools aimed at encouraging Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic students to apply to the University of Cambridge. The GEEMA Summer Schools offer a taste of university life and the wide variety of courses available to study at Cambridge, including lectures, practical work and social activities. In this 1 minute film, Ruthba, a student who participated in last year's GEEMA Summer School, explains what it's like to try out Cambridge c
It might be assumed that welfare states that have done so much to reduce inequality of opportunity have also reduced inequality of health outcomes. While great advances have been seen in reducing the rates of many diseases in welfare states, disparities in health have not been eliminated. Is it the case that lowering risks overall will leave disparities that cannot be remediated, and that such efforts are at the point of diminishing returns? The evidence suggests that this is not true. Instead t
