Diversity in Family and Household Patterns
This module is designed to illustrate differences in family and household composition patterns for different groups based on race/ethnicity and social class. It also serves as a review of key methodological concepts introduced in the first part of the course.
Fertility and Family Planning
Students will gain an understanding of the change in fertility patterns in the U.S. through an examination of the change of marital status among females, childbearing trends, and how such variables are affected by race/ethnicity.
Poverty and Young Adults
This exercise focuses on the effects of various social characteristics on poverty. It is based on the sociological assumption that patterns exist in relation to poverty in society.
U.S. Housing Patterns, Living Arrangements, and Life Chances
In this assignment you will use U.S. census data to get an overview of housing patterns (ownership and types of housing) and living arrangements as a way of understanding more about one example of what Weber referred to as life chances (or, basically, the ability to access to resources we need to live a good life).
Right Brain Math: Times Table Overview & Fun Factor Sets
Great visual patterns and overviews of how numbers work from a right brain perspective. Tom Biesanz (Mister Numbers) shows how the patterns look and how they relate to families of factor numbers. Run time 05:42.
Multiplication: Learning Times Tables for 8s and 2s
Math times table created from fun patterns as a way to learn
multiplication tables for Eights and Twos. This video also teaches place value. This video has the student create worksheets where they can learn the times tables. This is useful for teaching math in a classroom, at home, as part of homeschool or as fun homework. Right Brain Math can teach Elementary Students. Curriculum Review magazine calls it a revolutionary approach to introducing math. It is also very effective for remedia
Learn Fun Math Patterns on a Number Wheel: Threes & Sevens
This video uses a number line bent into a circle for the ones-digits. Skip Counting around the circle by Threes reveal a fancy ten pointed star. Right Brain Math Patterns reveal that when you skip count around the circle by Sevens, you reveal the same star. All the
numbers that add up to ten: the Ones and Nines, the Twos and Eights, the Threes and Sevens, and the Fours and Sixes create the same image on the number wheel. The video shows the factor set of the Threes and Sevens but concentr
Multiplication By SEVENS and THREES
FUN pattern ways to create the whole TIMES TABLE. On a tic-tac-toe
square you put the numbers 1-9. In three seconds you can create the
Threes multiplication table. It is fun and easy patterns that create
3-6-9-12-15-18-21-24-27- and 30. There are ways to continue the
pattern to reveal multiplication of the Threes to 100 x 3 and beyond.
There are also playful patterns for creating the Ones, Twos, Threes,
Fours, Sixes (five different ways) Sevens, Eights,
Measures of Central Tendency, Stem and Leaf Plots
In this video the mean, median, mode, and range are explored using the football scores from the JCHS Blue Jay 2008 football season. You will learn how to analyze data or recognize patterns and find measures of central tendency from stem and leaf plots
How To Play Piano: Tones - Lesson #2
This video lesson covers semi tones and whole tones. Ear training and patterns are presented along with a demonstration of scales and chords. The audio at the beginning and end of the video is difficult to hear, but it is okay during the main part of the lesson. (20:15)
Mathematical patterns using building blocks.
The Unity of Living Systems
All cellular organisms — prokaryotic and eukaryotic — share basic chemical similarities. Out of these similarities, however, emerge diverse patterns of cell assembly. Students encounter the tools to understand various cell types and their relationship to noncell entities such as viruses.
Guangming Smart-city: A New Chinese City
By 2010 it is anticipated that half of China’s population will have moved from the countryside to the cities. The Chinese Government has recently presented Dongtan, near Shanghai, as their ecological showcase to the United Nations World Urban Forum, but what will tomorrow’s new Chinese city be? Our key research concern was to design a more sustainable social and economic community and strike a balance between modernization and environmental preservation. The “ecological life-style” is a
9 Patterns in nature and elsewhere
Patterns occur everywhere in art, nature, science and especially mathematics. Being able to recognise, describe and use these patterns is an important skill that helps you to tackle a wide variety of different problems. This unit explores some of these patterns ranging from ancient number patterns to the latest mathematical research.
Animal Life Cycles
There are life processes that are so much a part of our experience that it’s easy to take them for granted. Reproduction is one of these processes. It seems quite simple: life cycles result in offspring that resemble their parents. The life cycle patterns of different life forms vary, but the outcome is always the same – the continuity of life is ensured from generation t
Number Patterns - Virtual Manipulative
This virtual manipulative teaches recognition of number patterns.
Observe the initial numbers in a sequence and enter what you think remaining the remaining values in the pattern are. Click Check Answer to see if your answer matches the computer's answer.

Sieve of Eratosthenes - Virtual Manipulative
This virtual manipulative displays a grid containing numbers from 2 to 200. You can use it to explore patterns and relationships involving multiples.
Using this virtual manipulative you may:
-Remove multiples of a number
-Show multiples of numbers
-Reset the workspace
-Choose how many rows to display
Pattern Blocks - A Virtual Manipulative
Use six common geometric shapes to build patterns and solve problems.
Using this virtual manipulative you may:
-Add a block to the workspace
-Rotate a block
-Change the color of a block
-Remove a block
-Clone a block
-Clear the workspace
