The Visual Datasets text module discusses the concept of visual learning and presents some suggestions for ways to design learning environments that support students in developing visual literacy skills. Three visual datasets that can be used for problem solving activities in evolution, classification, development, and botany are included: Caminacules: A dataset of imaginary animals that can be used as the basis for a variety of problem-posing and problem-solving activities in evolution, classi
From 1991 until 1993 the Biosphere system supported people, plants, and animals. Experiments offered the opportunity for tracking in great detail the interactions among land and water ecosystems and the atmosphere. SimBio2 offers several scenarios in which students can generate simulation graphs using actual data from the Biosphere 2 experiment. Studentscan explore some of the problems that affected Biosphere 2 such as higher levels of carbon dioxide than expected and the resulting decrease oxy

Learning Guide: Unit 5 - Good nutrition for learning.
We start off Unit 5 with a story that encourages you to reflect on a key question: Why should the provision of nutritious food for vulnerable children be a central concern for school management? We look to Maslow's hierarchy of needs theory to understand the link between nutrition and learning. His theory suggests that higher cognitive levels of performance depend on basic needs being adequately met. This is backed up by evidence from research that shows the significant benefits to learners who
LABash Conference Patrick Dougherty
Patrick Dougherty is world renowned for his woven willow sculptures that brink on the border of natural environment (chaos) and man made structures (order). His work can be seeen at http://www.stickwork.net. His presentation was recorded Friday, March 25 as part of LABash 2011. LABash 2011 was held March 25-26 at Purdue University and was hosted by Purdue University's Landscape Architecture program.

Engineering for the Three Little Pigs
The purpose of this activity is to demonstrate the importance of rocks, soils and minerals in engineering and how using the right material for the right job is important. The students build three different sand castles and test them for strength and resistance to weathering. Then, they discuss how the buildings are different and what engineers need to think about when using rocks, soils and minerals for construction.
Cerebellar Degeneration - Reflexes Exam - Abnormal (Pathological) Sub-exam - Patient 3
This 42-year-old man complains of poor balance and frequent falls for 6 years. Imbalance has been progressive; he cannot ambulate independently at present. He experiences tremors and weakness. Imbalance has been progressive and he now cannot ambulate independently. He is in good general health except for heavy alcohol use. For the last 10 years, he has consumed a quart of vodka and 5 beers daily. On awakening, he feels "shaky" and calms himself with a morning drink. He has not had blackouts or
Parkinson Disease - Reflexes Exam - Frontal (Release) Signs Sub-exam - Patient 4
This 76-year-old man developed tremor of his right arm and leg 15 years ago. It has increased in severity over the years. A shaking right hand affects his writing, dressing and drinking. Occasional drooling, difficulty rolling over in bed and a soft voice at times are also issues. The tremor has affected his writing and he has mild difficulty with buttons and zippers. He spills when he uses his right hand to drink. He has occasional drooling and slight difficulty rolling over in bed. His voice
1.5.1 Rhetoric and rigour
Are you about to undertake a PhD in science, technology or mathematics? If so, this unit will help you to examine your work processes. You will consider and develop the nature of postgraduate work and look at the planning of work needed at doctoral level.
In this unit you will see first how to convert vectors from geometric form, in terms of a magnitude and direction, to component form, and then how conversion in the opposite sense is accomplished. The ability to convert between these different forms of a vector is useful in certain problems involving displacement and velocity, as shown in Section 2, in which you will also work with bearings.

After reading To Kill a Mockingbird, by Harper Lee write a definition of a classic, in the literary sense. What makes a book a "classic?"
A plant community can be sampled using a "wandering quarter" survey, a plotless survey method that requires no set-up and minimal equipment. Participants zig-zag from tree to tree, always heading in the same general compass direction. Data collected can be used to calculate several common measures of plant community structure, including species richness, species diversity, relative basal area, stems per hectare, relative dominance, and importance value. Hypotheses about the effect of various abi
