HST.952 Computing for Biomedical Scientists (MIT)
This course introduces abstraction as an important mechanism for problem decomposition and solution formulation in the biomedical domain, and examines computer representation, storage, retrieval, and manipulation of biomedical data. As part of the course, we will briefly examine the effect of programming paradigm choice on problem-solving approaches, and introduce data structures and algorithms. We will also examine knowledge representation schemes for capturing biomedical domain complexity and
21H.225J Gender and the Law in U.S. History (MIT)
This subject explores the legal history of the United States as a gendered system. It examines how women have shaped the meanings of American citizenship through pursuit of political rights such as suffrage, jury duty, and military service, how those political struggles have varied for across race, religion, and class, as well as how the legal system has shaped gender relations for both women and men through regulation of such issues as marriage, divorce, work, reproduction, and the family. The
Mini project : 3D graphics and visualisation : presentation transcript
This is a Mini Project presentation about 3D graphics and visualisation. It is part of the 2009/10 BSc in Games & Graphics Hardware Technology (course number 2ELE0074) from the University of Hertfordshire. All the mini projects are designed as level two modules of the undergraduate programmes. The project involves developing a simple system which will allow students to understand the process and the main parameters involved in creating 3D visualization content for games and various applicatio
Macaulay’s method and poisson’s ratio : document transcript
This is a document transcript for Macaulay’s Method & Poisson’s Ratio (Edexcel HN unit – Mechanical Principles (NQF L4)). It examines a method of analysing the bending moment and shear force distribution along a uniformly loaded, simply supported beam. The method used is Macaulay’s and the stages involved in this method are described in detail. The method also determines the position of the maximum bending moment, the slope and deflection at this point. Poisson’s ratio is the ratio bet
Historical skills : dating documents
Explains the different dating conventions employed in historical documents. For example, the system of dating by reference to a religious feast day and the year of the reigning monarch has little in common with the modern calendar. Even where a recognisable date is provided, it may not be what it at first appears.... The resource includes a glossary, bibliography and translation of relevant Latin numbers/phrases. Illustrative images of items from our collections appear throughout.
Ethics and Midwifery Research

Medicine Games: Split Brain Experiment
Play a game and find out about a Nobel Prize awarded discovery or work! The brain is made up of two halves, the hemispheres. These hemispheres are united to one another through a system consisting of millions of nerve fibers. Therefore, each hemisphere is continually informed about what is happening in the other. What happens if the connection is broken?

Glass ceramic, heat treated at 840°C for 3 hours
Glass ceramics are materials that are cooled from the melt in the form of a glass, and then heat treated to induce controlled crystallisation of the glass. Heterogeneous nucleation is carried out at a temperature to maximise the nucleation rate (common nucleating agents include TiO2 and ZrO2), and the temperature is then raised sufficiently to cause the nuclei formed to grow rapidly. Glass ceramics are strong, reasonably tough, transparent to IR radiation, have a low coefficient of thermal expan
