Cook for Success Newsletter

Following the first round of 'Cook For Success' conferences in October 2006, the School Food Trust have developed a newsletter that will offer tips and advice, give recipe ideas and help cooks find out about the latest regulations and guidance.

2.7 Summary

Whether you're a professional musician, play music with your friends on the weekends or just like to listen to CDs, music technology affects your life. In this unit, you will learn some of the basics of music technology, starting with what sound is, how it is created and how it travels.

1.1 Analysis, interpretation and evaluation

This unit is essential reading if you want to look at, and think about, people's ideas, practices and products to try to understand what they mean. Developing your skill in analysisâ€“interpretationâ€“evaluation and communication is a good and worthwhile investment. Aimed at learners of arts and humanities subjects, you will find this unit invaluable whether you are new to study or more experienced.

Butterflies for the use of ICT

The resource is a short A5 size book, also available as two pdf files, of inspirational quotes, tips and ideas around ICT in schools. It is one of a series (â€˜The Butterfly Collectionâ€™) produced by the London Challenge in 2005, in collaboration with the London Grid for Learning.

1.2.3: A typical shopping basket

This unit looks at a wide variety of ways of comparing prices and the construction of a price index. You will also look at the Retail Price Index (RPI) and the Consumer Price Index (CPI), indices used by the UK Government to calculate the percentage by which prices in general have risen over any given period. You wil also look at the important statistical and mathematical ideas that contribute to the construction of a price index.

1.2.2: The price of a loaf these days

This unit looks at a wide variety of ways of comparing prices and the construction of a price index. You will also look at the Retail Price Index (RPI) and the Consumer Price Index (CPI), indices used by the UK Government to calculate the percentage by which prices in general have risen over any given period. You wil also look at the important statistical and mathematical ideas that contribute to the construction of a price index.

Unfit for Life: Genetically Enhance Humanity of Face Extinction If we are to avoid annihilation, we must either alter our political institutions, severely restrain our technology or change our nature (22 February 2010)

Learning outcomes

This unit is the second in the MSXR209 series of five units on mathematical modelling. In this unit you are asked to relate the stages of the mathematical modelling process to a previously formulated mathematical model. This example, that of skid mark produced by vehicle tyres, is typical of accounts of modelling that you may see in books, or produced in the workplace. The aim of this unit is to help you to draw out and to clarify mathematical modelling ideas by considering the example. It assum

This unit extends the ideas introduced in the unit on first-order differential equations to a particular type of second-order differential equations which has a variety of applications. The unit assumes that you have previously had a basic grounding in calculus, know something about first-order differential equations and some familiarity with complex numbers.

"Chicago" by Carl Sandberg (poetry reading)

This poem was first published in 1916, a little earlier than Prohibition, Al Capone and the domination of the underworld: Chicago was relatively salubrious at that time.
