12.333 Atmospheric and Ocean Circulations (MIT)
In this course, we will look at many important aspects of the circulation of the atmosphere and ocean, from length scales of meters to thousands of km and time scales ranging from seconds to years. We will assume familiarity with concepts covered in course 12.003 (Physics of the Fluid Earth). In the early stages of the present course, we will make somewhat greater use of math than did 12.003, but the math we will use is no more than that encountered in elementary electromagnetic field theor

The third classification of rocks are those which were formed deep in the earth's crust by melting and then recrystallization. These rocks include volcanic rocks, igneous rocks of dykes and sills and plutonic rocks such as granite, syenite, gabbro and ultramafic rocks. Many specimens are discussed that are not often found in classroom labs or textbooks. This is an excerpt from this fascinating and informative video from TMW Media.

Learn about the Maillard Reaction with Cooking
Believe it or not, steak, coffee beans, caramel, and toast have something in common. It's called The Maillard Reaction and it is the reason that things get browned when they are heated. It is a chemical reaction of sugars with amino acids. Dr. Kiki helps explain this process. Run time 03:38
Chemistry Magic Show
This chemistry project could be used for grades 9-12. It builds on their previous knowledge of chemistry and shows them how different chemical reactions can be going on at the same time. Run time 02:57.
Two-Dimensional Projectile Motion (Part 2)
More on two-dimensional projectile motion. This video, which is suitable for high school students, starts with a black screen because the instructor, in his easy, conservsational tone, uses it as a 'chalkboard.' Run time 09:57.
8.422 Atomic and Optical Physics II (MIT)
This is the second of a two-semester subject sequence beginning with Atomic and Optical Physics I (8.421) that provides the foundations for contemporary research in selected areas of atomic and optical physics. Topics covered include non-classical states of light, multi-photon processes, coherence, trapping and cooling, atomic interactions, and experimental methods.
A Primer on Natural Resources and the Environment There is a fundamental fact about the world that has profound implications for the supply of natural resources and for the relationship between production and economic activity on the one side and man's environment on the other. This is the fact that the entire earth consists of solidly packed chemical elements. There is not a single cubic centimeter either on or within the earth that is not some chemical eleme

Evaluation of 'Business Enterprise' Module
This report outlines a process of evaluation for a business enterprise module. This exploratory research investigates the impact of 'contextual' based evaluation of enterprise education curricula
Design Algorithms after Le Corbusier
Some views of design are the act as puzzle making, problem solving, evolutionary, and decision-making. All these focus on form generation as constructive, therefore characterizing design as a path-planning problem through a space of possibilities. Design problems consist sets of information divided into initial, intermediate, and goal states. Design in its simplest state consist of a set of operators, sequences (or paths) between initial and goals states. In this paper, I present design algorith

The Jacobs? Urban Lineage Revisited
Since the almost simultaneous publication of Kevin Lynch and Jane Jacobs? seminal and pioneer urban manifestos, the discipline has been increasingly permeated by what could be rightly called the phenomenological impulse. While sharing methodological principles, however, they represent two very distinct approaches to the study of urban matters, a distinction rooted on their chosen object of study. The drawing of this distinction constitutes this research?s point of departure. Its fundamental aim
