CAAD - Integrated with the First Steps into Architecture
How and when should CAAD be introduced in the curriculum of the School of Architecture? This paper begins with some arguments for starting CAAD education at the very beginning. At the School of Architecture in Lund teachers in the first year courses have tried to integrate CAAD with the introduction to architectural concepts and techniques. Traditionally the first year is divided by several subjects running courses separatly without any contact for coordination. From the academic year 96/97 the

Shape Grammars for Innovative Hybrid Typological Design
This paper describes a new methodology of deriving innovative hybrid designs using shape grammars of heterogeneous designs. The method is detailed within three phases of shape grammars: analysis, synthesis and evaluation. In the analysis phase, the research suggests that original rules of each design component are grouped in subclass rule sets to facilitate rule choices. Additionally, adding new hybrid rules to original rules expands the options available to the grammar user. In the synthesis ph
The Vowel Song (a e i o u) Short Vowels
A simple song and video to help practice short vowel sounds. Some of the three letter words formed are cat, bed, dog, and bus. This is a great resource to introduce and/or review short vowels in the early childhood classroom. (1:34)
International Classification of Function, Disability and Health
This package was originally designed for undergraduates in Medicine at the University of Nottingham. It will also be useful to students in nursing, allied health professions and pharmacy. Practitioners in these fields, who are new to the ICF, will also find it a useful introduction. It describes the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF), a classification system published by the World Health Organisation to describe health status. This system is widely used in

Glass ceramic, heat treated at 900°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 expa
Tsunamis harbor an element of surprise: In the deep ocean, tsunami waves pass unnoticed beneath boats, yet they rise to dangerous heights near shore. How do tsunamis work? What was the worst tsunami in recorded history? How does a tsunami warning system work?
