Accuracy of Series Approximations
In physics and mathematics, series expansions to approximate functions are often used because using the exact solution is either impossible or involves unnecessary complicated calculations. This Demonstration shows accuracy for a series of expansions and how adding terms increases that accuracy moving away from the origin.

The Age of Revolutions (1776-1989?) - European Civilization from the Renaissance to the Present
An introduction to European history from around 1500 to the present. The central question that the course addresses is how and why Europe-- a small, relatively poor, and politically fragmented place-- became the motor of globalization and a world civilization in its won right. Put differently how did �western� become an adjective that, for better and often for worse, stands in place of �modern.� Our approach will be broadly cultural, i.e. it approaches politics, economics, social life,

Environmental Landfill Management
Lesson objectives: Students will be able to identify what a pollutant is and its affects on the environment. The students will demonstrate knowledge of the vocabulary used in environmental management by the DOE and other federal agencies. The students will attain a basic understanding of waste problems within our environment and the fundamental concepts of the laws of nature, science, physics, and engineering. Students will construct and operate a small-scale leach-bed barrier system.

Applying Ohm's Law to Semiconductors
This project allows students to apply concepts of momentum conservation and energy conservation from classical physics. However, here they are not enough: they must be combined with modern physics, using concepts from relativity and particle physics as well as modern units that put energy, mass, and momentum in terms of MeV and GeV. Most important, students will learn about both fundamental and cutting-edge physics by actually doing what physicists do.

Global Studies Seminar Series | Professor Robyn Eckersley and Dr Martin Mulligan
The new politics of climate change: building political momentum and community support for adequate action on climate change. In regard to responding to the enormous challenges of climate change, the public debate in Australia has been frustratingly narrow and yet polarising. The Rudd/Gillard governments have put nearly all their emphasis on the twice-defeated Emissions Trading Scheme (ETS) and an increased roll-out renewable energy alternatives, while the Abbott-led opposition has given new oxy
