Patterns of life
Each mp3 voice recording accompanies a PowerPoint slide or set of slides. These two files were bundled together with a transcript of the mp3s (mainly for people with hearing disabilities) and a printer-friendly pdf of the slides. Each set of files is organised into topics, which are set out in two ways. For linear learners they are set out in a suggested order. For non-linear learners they are organised via an interactive “mind map”, which is a diagram showing how the different sub-top
Starting with maths: Patterns and formulas
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.
Christopher Lydon analyzes voting patterns in "Black Boston
Christopher Lydon reports on a renewal of political activity in black Boston, and notes that there is a high percentage of newly registered voters in the African American neighborhoods. The report includes interviews with Charles Stith (Union United Methodist Church) and Kay Gibbs (South End political activist). Stith and Gibbs talk about the candidacy of Mel King (candidate for mayor of Boston) as well as opposition to King's candidacy, led by Mel Miller (publisher, The Bay State Banner).
Patterns in Mathematics
Patterns in Mathematics is a site useful for both teachers and students. It is part of a project sponsored by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting and the Annenberg Foundation. There are three main sections -- logic patterns, number patterns, and word patterns. Each section starts with a brief description, followed by two activities that demonstrate the necessary principles. Each lesson is well illustrated, and students can follow the guided steps through an interactive interface. Alternative
#35 Scales in 6th's & 3rd's; Also Formula Patterns, Learn How to Play Piano
This lesson covers technique drills for you to practise daily. You'll learn how to play piano faster if you can play your technique every day for even 15 - 20 minutes.
Ocean Temperatures and Climate Patterns
This animation from The New Media Studio illustrates how the atmosphere and ocean together shape wind, current, and rainfall patterns in the tropical Pacific.
Math Literature Connections: Patterns and Algebra
Ideas and activities that use Two of Everything, One Grain of Rice and the King's Chessboard to introduce students to function machines and input/output tables. Links to appropriate templates are also provided.
Algebra: Growing Patterns
Introduce elementary students to the concept of functions by investigating growing patterns. Visual patterns formed with manipulatives are especially effective for elementary students and allow them to concretely build understanding as they first reproduce, then extend the pattern to the next couple of stages.
Current and Historic Patterns in the Distribution of Income
We've argued that societal stratification is "both a condition and a process" (Kerckhoff, 2000). The former captures what the distribution of valued resources (e.g., money, education) among other things look like in a society. The question, most simply, is 'who gets what'?
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.
New rfp- and pES213-Derived Tools for Analyzing Symbiotic Vibrio fischeri Reveal Patterns of Infecti
This AEM scholarly article examines two limitations to studying the in situ symbiosis of Euprymna scolopes, or bobtail squid, and Vibrio fischeri. Current molecular studies of this symbiosis lack plasmids that maintain stability in the absence of antibiotic pressure and need a useful fluorescent tag that can be used with green fluorescent protein (GFP), which holds great promise as an in situ reporter of gene activity. The authors introduce a possible remedy to these limitations by utilizing pla
Global Patterns in Green-Up and Green-Down
The purpose of this resource is to investigate the annual cycle of plant growth and decline using visualizations and graphs. Students will analyze visualizations and graphs that show the annual cycle of plant growth and decline. Students will explore patterns of annual change for the globe and each hemisphere in several regions that have different land cover and will match graphs that show annual green-up and green-down patterns with a specific land cover type.
What Are Some Factors That Affect Seasonal Patterns?
The purpose of this resource is to have students use GLOBE data and graphing tools to compare the influence of latitude, elevation, and geography on seasonal patterns. Students analyze the graph of the past year's maximum and minimum temperatures at their site. They compare this graph to similar graphs for two other sites and list which factors that might cause the patterns to be different and investigate one in depth.
How Do Seasonal Temperature Patterns Vary Among Different Regions of the World?
The purpose of this resource is to have students use GLOBE visualizations to display student data on maps and to learn about seasonal changes in regional and global temperature patterns. Students learn how sunlight spreads over the Earth at different times of the year, emphasizing the solstices and the equinoxes. Students investigate the effect of the Earth.s tilt on the spread of sunlight by modeling different tilts using a three-dimensional polyhedron which they construct from paper. Students
NASA KSNN What patterns do you see?
Identifying patterns is an important skill in understanding math and science. Patterns can be seen all around us. They are sometimes seen as repeating visual images or may be found as special arrangements of numbers in a list.

Patterns of migration - a problem or opportunity?
Does the UK's current immigration policy cause us problems or does it provide us with opportunities for economic growth? Are we experiencing a new immigration phenomenon or is the flow of people from country to country something that has always been with us? Professor Zig Layton-Henry, Politics and International Studies, is an expert in the patterns and policy of migration. Length: 22 minutes
Techniques for Studying Materials: Indexing Electron Diffraction Patterns
This animation explains origin and behaviour of Kikuchi lines. From TLP: Indexing Electron Diffraction Patterns
1.1 Changes in women's employment patterns
Here you will explore how different families have different ideas about how work in the home should be divided. You will also investigate the diversity of families. We will see how any discussion of the division of labour has to recognise that families differ in terms of shape and size.
6.1 Considering patterns on a larger scale
This unit continues our examination of ‘voice-leading’ or ‘Schenkerian’ analysis, perhaps the most widely-used and discussed method of analysing tonal music. In this unit, this method is explained through the analysis of piano sonatas by Mozart. The unit is the second in the AA314 series of three units on this form of harmonic analysis, and concentrates on the ‘middleground level’ of voice leading. As you work through this unit, you will become familiar with the deeper levels of harm
