2.086 Numerical Computation for Mechanical Engineers (MIT)
This class introduces elementary programming concepts including variable types, data structures, and flow control. After an introduction to linear algebra and probability, it covers numerical methods relevant to mechanical engineering, including approximation (interpolation, least squares and statistical regression), integration, solution of linear and nonlinear equations, ordinary differential equations, and deterministic and probabilistic approaches. Examples are drawn from mechanical engineer

Inherited and Acquired Traits (Traits of Livings)
This informative video teaches students about inherited and acquired traits. Each trait is defined and examples given. Eye color and freckles are inherited traits. Learning how to read and playing football are acquired traits. This is a great resource to use in conjunction with non-fiction texts and lessons on this topic. (1:33)

Zoom Rockman, the nine-year old who makes and sells his own comic book -- the Zoom -- gives you his top tips for getting started on one of your very own. This would be good to show to students to get them brainstorming about what their own comic books might look like.
Brian Schmidt: The accelerating Universe - Vice-Chancellor's Lecture Series
ANU Nobel Laureate Professor Brian Schmidt gives a Vice-Chancellor's Public Lecture. The talk is titled 'The accelerating Universe'. In 1998 two teams traced back the expansion of the universe over billions of years and discovered that it was accelerating. It was a startling discovery that suggests that more than 70 per cent of the cosmos is contained in a previously unknown form of matter, called Dark Energy. In this talk, Brian Schmidt, leader of the High-Redshift Supernova Search Team, des
Curiosity Has Landed
Get a behind the scenes look a the tension, anticipation and exhilaration experienced by scientists and engineers at NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory in Pasadena, Calif. during the Curiosity rover's harrowing descent through the Martian atmosphere -- known as "Seven
Minutes of Terror." News of Curiosity's safe touchdown following the 13-thousand-to-zero-mile-an-hour descent to the Red Planet's surface brought elation and high-fives all around. Curiosity begins a two-year investi
President Lambert discusses Elon's strength as a "best-value" university

System Design Proposal for an Urban Information Platform: A systems proposal
This paper focuses on information modelling and proposes a system design for an urban model encompassing multi-scale data. The system employs procedural modelling on top of GIS information to allow different simulation tools to interact with the data. This is a promising approach for an urban information platform integrating multi-scale urban information to support different simulations important in urban design. In an initial instance the information platform is used to scale-up and scale-down
Tower Views - Welcome Back Students
In this edition of Tower Views, Larry Burns vice president of external affairs, is on location all around campus, asking students how their first week back to school was.
Living Architecture: Micro Performances of Bio Fabrication
This ongoing research study explores novel modes of design and fabrication by combining digital tools and technologies with living biological systems within controlled environments in order to induce specifi c biological functions and material production processes. The main objective is to design and implement a biological fabrication technique, using bacteria, to produce physical components for architecture and product design.

The Magic School Bus Gets Swamped - Wetlands
Walkerville is debating whether to build a mall where the swamp is now, or to built it somewhere else. With the flip of a coin, Ms. Frizzle's class finds themselves defending the swamp and Janet arguing against them. However, the class finds out that the swamp is home to several organisms, but Janet finds this argument little more than a joke and the city agrees. That is until a tree gets knocked over by lightning, blocking off the swamp and flooding the city. After the crisis is resolved, the c
