Homeostasis and the Cell Membrane King
We are in awe of the cell membrane! Why? It keeps us in homeostasis! Let the Amoeba Sisters tell you how! (4:13)
Form in Islamic Architecture: A new vision by using 3D Studio Max program
Architecture is a record of human civilization, values, principles and concepts. Form (elements and relations) is one of the visual features of identity and self on one hand and expressive features of place and time (scientific and technical development ) on the other hand. Creating new forms from historical forms is considered one of the greatest challenges that face the architect. Research problem centered on the importance of form in Islamic architecture, and the possibility of investment a
Engaging students in ethical debates
This case study outlines an investigation into the acceptance of a new pedagogical paradigm aiming to engage and inspire students in ethical and entrepreneurial activity
The restless Universe introduces you to major achievements and figures in the history of physics, from Copernicus to Einstein and beyond. The route from classical to quantum physics will be laid out for you without recourse to challenging mathematics but with the fundamental features of theories and discoveries described in sufficient detail to whet your appetite for further physics study.
5.1 Electromagnetic waves
James Clerk Maxwell (1831-1879) is arguably the father of electromagnetism, and unarguably one of the greatest physicists ever. Einstein called Maxwell's equations 'the most important event in physics since Newton's time, not only because of their wealth of content, but also because they form a pattern for a new type of law'. This unit will examine Maxwell's greatest triumph, the prediction that electromagnetic waves can propagate vast distances through empty space and the realisation that light
How J.D. Power III Transformed the Auto Industry
In 1968, J.D. Power III took the radical step of soliciting customer feedback about cars through consumer surveys. In a recent interview, Power discussed the company's origins with Wharton's John Paul MacDuffie.

Subject Enhancement Courses for Higher Education Graduates
Subject enhancement/extension courses are available to graduates in a variety of Higher Education Institutions (HEIs) across the country in order for them to enhance and deepen their subject knowledge before training as secondary teachers. This resource consists of a series of evaluations of the pilot pre-ITT enhancement courses in mathematics, chemistry, physics and French.
"Good Bye My Fancy" by Walt Whitman, poetry reading animation
A photo of the great Walt Whitman appears to read his poem, "Good Bye My Fancy"!" Originally published in his Leaves of Grass compilation in 1891.
DERECHO CONSTITUCIONAL II (2008)
Se trata de una materia complementaria del Derecho constitucional I, en la que se estudian los diversos niveles territoriales de la soberanía en España y sus implicaciones con un nivel más alto como es el Derecho Comunitario Europeo y el Derecho Internacional Público. Asimismo, en los primeros temas se da un repaso a la evolución política desde el régimen franquista hasta nuestros días, así como al problema regional en España y al viejo contencioso de los nacionalismos.
Particles and Waves
Even before the crisis of the atom, there was evidence that light, which was certainly a wave, could sometimes act like a particle. In the new physics, called quantum mechanics, not only does light come in quanta called photons, but electrons and other particles also interfere like waves.
ESD.34 System Architecture (MIT)
This course covers principles and methods for technical System Architecture. It presents a synthetic view including: the resolution of ambiguity to identify system goals and boundaries; the creative process of mapping form to function; and the analysis of complexity and methods of decomposition and re-integration. Industrial speakers and faculty present examples from various industries. Heuristic and formal methods are presented. Restricted to SDM (System Design and Management) students.
22.A09 Career Options for Biomedical Research (MIT)
This course has been designed as a seminar to give students an understanding of how scientists with medical or scientific degrees conduct research in both hospital and academic settings. There will be interactive discussions with research clinicians and scientists about the career opportunities and research challenges in the biomedical field, which an MIT student might prepare for by obtaining an MD, PhD, or combined degrees. The seminar will be held in a case presentation format, with topics ch

Landing - a Summary
This NASA video segment explores how Newton's laws apply to the landing of an airplane. Viewers watch an instructor at NASA's National Test Pilot School explain that each step of an airplane's landing can be described with physics. Viewers also learn that a test pilot's job is to find the optimal methods for landing an aircraft.
Envisioning Cyberspace: The Design of On-Line Communities
The development of the World Wide Web into an active, visual social environment poses unique opportunities for the design professions. Multi-user Domains, social meeting places in cyberspace, are mostly text-based virtual realities which use spatial references to set the stage for social interaction. Over the past year design students at the New Jersey Institute of Technology School of Architecture have investigated several text-based domains. In the course of their work, they envisioned and gra
The Biology of the Language Faculty: Its Perfection, Past and Future
Noam Chomsky, around whose work much of the Syntax series revolves, gives listeners a glimpse into the evolution of his own thinking, with an emphasis on areas of linguistics where computational considerations play a major role.
Chomsky briefly outlines the key components of a biologically based linguistics that be
Essential Science for Teachers: Physical Science: Session 2. The Particle Nature of Matter: Solids,
What simple idea links together all of chemistry and physics? How can a close study of the macroscopic differences among solids, liquids, and gases support a microscopic model of tiny, discrete, and constantly moving particles? In this session, participants learn how the "particle model" can be turned into a powerful tool for generating predictions about the behavior of matter under a wide range of conditions.,The segment provides examples of probing questions about phenomenon to determine what
Physics Games: Microscopes
