The Spotlight - Math + Stats = Charity Talent Night
Features the annual Math and Stats Society Charity Talent Night. This event provides an opportunity for McMaster's Science students to showcase their talents while raising money for a good cause.
Platform on Two Rotating Cylinders Model
The EJS Platform on Two Rotating Cylinders model displays the model of a platform resting on two equal cylinders are rotating with opposite angular velocities. There is kinetic friction between each cylinder and the platform. The separation between the cylinders and the coefficient of kinetic friction can be changed via textboxes.
SP.401 Introduction to Women's and Gender Studies (MIT)
This course offers an introduction to Women's and Gender Studies, an interdisciplinary academic field that asks critical questions about the meaning of gender in society. The primary goal of this course is to familiarize students with key issues, questions and debates in Women's and Gender Studies scholarship, both historical and contemporary.

She addresses some sensory issues, job skills, and effective teachers. This is a good resource for anyone working with any child on the Autism Spectrum. (5:57)
I Breathe WHAT??
In this activity, students will capture and examine the particles to gain an appreciation of how much dust, pollen and other particulate matter is present in the air around them. Students will place "pollution detectors" at various locations to determine which places have a lot of particles in the air and which places do not have as many. Quantifying and describing these particles is a first step towards engineering methods of removing contaminants from the air.
Caught in the Net
Bycatch can be defined as the act of unintentionally catching certain living creatures using fishing gear. A bycatched species is distinguished from a target species (the animal the gear is intended to catch) because it is not sold or used. Marine mammals (whales, dolphins, porpoises), seabirds, sea turtles and unwanted or undersized fish are some examples of animals caught as by-catch The incidental capture of these animals can significantly reduce their populations. The most well known example

Density Rainbow and the Great Viscosity Race
Students explore the densities and viscosities of fluids as they create a colorful 'rainbow' using household liquids. While letting the fluids in the rainbow settle, students conduct 'The Great Viscosity Race,' another short experiment that illustrates the difference between viscosity and density. Later, students record the density rainbow with sketches and/or photography.

Finding the Side of a Square
This two minute video teaches you how to find the side
of a square. Information you would know from the problem is Area = length squared and all sides are the same measure. If the length is a perfect square, you can square it and you will get the side of a square.The video uses animation.

NASA KSNN What do animals need to live?
There are many different habitats on the Earth. These vary in the landforms, sources of water, and climate conditions. Plants and animals are specially adapted to live in their habitats. Animals suited to live in the desert (very dry, either hot or cold) would have a difficult time living in the tropical rain forest (warm and very wet). Grades K-2
Water Pollution and Food Chains
Developed for sixth grade. There are two key concepts covered in this lesson: first, how pollution can affect plants, and, second, how polluted plants affect the rest of the food cycle. In sum, this lesson teaches students about "Bioaccumulation". Biology In Elementary Schools is a Saint Michael's College student project. The teaching ideas on this page have been found, refined, and developed by students in a college-level course on the teaching of biology at the elementary level. Unless otherw
