Living and non-living things
Living things often rely on non-living things to accomplish daily tasks. Living things have several characteristics that non-living things do not, such as the ability to move, eat, breathe, and reproduce. Living things and non-living things can interact even though they do not have the same characteristics.
Community based Physical Therapy
In this lecture, students are going to learn about the history, the society background and the system of Regional Physiotherapy for the preparation and the understanding of the practical side of Regional Physiotherapy. Moreover, we will have suggestions by the physiotherapists and occupational therapists working on the front-line.
3.8 Revision questions
Hearing is a familiar and important human sense that is a topic naturally of interest to those who are curious about human biology. This unit will enable you to relate what you read to your own sensory experiences – and indeed many of the questions asked have exactly that function. This unit will be best understood by those with some biological understanding.
Tissue movement in bipopulation tumour cord growth
Simulation of tumor cord growth where conversion of the tumor to glycolytic (anaerobic) metabolism takes place under hypoxia. This video shows volume fraction of glycolytic cell population and velocity of tissue movement. Isolines show hypoxia limits for aerobic and anaerobic cell lines respectively. This video reflects work in progress and may be different from the final results.

Water Pollution and Food Chains
Developed for sixth grade. There are two key concepts covered in this lesson: first, how pollution can affect plants, and, second, how polluted plants affect the rest of the food cycle. In sum, this lesson teaches students about "Bioaccumulation". Biology In Elementary Schools is a Saint Michael's College student project. The teaching ideas on this page have been found, refined, and developed by students in a college-level course on the teaching of biology at the elementary level. Unless otherw
Developed for second grade. Students will first hypothesize whether wheat bread or white bread will grow more mold. They will test the hypothesis using a simple and inexpensive set up. Bread will be placed in a plastic bag to be observed and never opened. Students will measure mold on a daily basis and record the data to graph later. Students will analyze the results when the experiment is complete. Biology In Elementary Schools is a Saint Michael's College student project. The teaching ideas o
Penny and Cup Game
Developed for third grade. To discover if one eye is better than two. Students will test their sense of sight with both monocular and binocular vision. Students will drop a penny and see if it lands in the cup of water. They will have to rely on their sense of sight for this activity.

Developed for second grade. Each group of students will be constructing their own worm ecosystem in a 2 liter soda bottle. They will be combining soil, gravel and sand in the bottle and then adding a bunch of worms to the material. The students will be planting a seed within the soil to observe how the plant shall grow over time. We will have six 2 liter soda bottles with worms and six 2 liter bottles without worms. The students will be examining how the worms affect the growing of the seed. Bi
What eggsactly is good for you teeth?
Developed for second grade. In this experiment students will learn about the sugar content in foods and the detrimental effects sugar can have on teeth, as well as the importance of dental care.

Gender, Martial Status, and Earnings
Berk (1985) proposed that the family is a "gender factory"; that is, families are social institutions in which ideas about gender are formed, enforced, and reproduced across generations. This exercise examines the relationships between marital status and earnings among women aged 25 and over, using data from the 1990 U.S. Census. We will attempt to answer the following question: Does marital status influence earnings among women?

PediNeuroLogic Exam: 6 Month Old: Normal: Postural Reflexes - Positive Support Reflex
Some consider the positive support reflex as a primitive reflex, but others consider it a postural reflex. I think it is a postural reflex because it is necessary for erect posture and blends into volitional standing. Infants with prenatal or perinatal corticospinal tract disease will often refuse to support their weight on their feet. The positive support reflex is the first postural reflex to develop and is present by 3 to 4 months of age. When the baby is placed in vertical suspension with th
