A Guided Inquiry in a Computer-based Biology Lab
Computer technology is used by the research teams of 3-4 students to search for background information for the guided inquiry, organize this information into a concept map, complete an electronic template (the TLNB: Team Lab Notebook), and analyze data with Microsoft Excel. A computer projection system is used to present their findings to the other teams. This format can be adapted to do open and guided inquiry laboratories in biology for both the major and non-major student. In addition it can

As with some previous work, the photographs relate directly to historical paintings, in this case artists from the British Landscape tradition including John Constable and the Pre-Raphaelites. The thematic concerns and formal properties (including bright colour saturation) are recast into contemporary East London but aim to go beyond a literal re

De l'usager construit à l'usager participant
Ce texte part du constat de la faible diffusion des artefacts produits par la recherche en EIAH. Cette situation résulte, nous semble-t-il, d'une forte discontinuité entre les moments de conception et d'usage pouvant entraîner une discordance entre usages imaginés (prédictifs) et usages « réels ». La conception participative, parce qu'elle repense la place de l'usager, nous paraît être à la fois une réponse possible à cette problématique et un champ de recherche pour l'ingénierie

L’utilisation d’un arbre des tâches pour concevoir et analyser des situations d’apprentissage :
Afin de prendre en compte les difficultés que les élèves ont pour donner du sens aux activités expérimentales, ce qui leur fait perdre de vue l’objectif initial du T.P. et les connaissances visées, nous proposons de leur faire concevoir le protocole des expériences. À travers trois exemples de situations de T.P. mises au point et expérimentées dans des classes de Terminale S, nous montrons comment la structuration du protocole expérimental dans un arbre de tâche, permet d'analyser e

Haymarket Martyr Albert Parsons's Last Words to His Wife
The Chicago radicals convicted of the infamous May 4, 1886 Haymarket Square bombing in which one policeman was killed remained openly defiant to the end.

"Please, Let Me Put Him in a Macaroni Box" The Spanish Influenza of 1918 in Philadelphia
In 1918 and 1919 the Spanish influenza killed more humans than any other disease in a similar period in the history of the world. In the United States a quarter of the population (25 million people or more) contracted the flu; 550,000 died. In the early 1980s, when historian Charles Hardy did interviews for the Philadelphia radio program "The Influenza Pandemic of 1918," he was struck by the painful memories as many older Philadelphians recalled the inability of the city to care for the dead and

Underneath the Mountains
These lecture notes discuss the role of buoyancy, flexure, and erosion in the earth's topography and the lifetime of mountain ranges. It recalls Pascal's law that pressure of a material overlying a fluid is equal everywhere at a given depth and Archimedes' principle that a body in a fluid is buoyed up with a force equal to the weight (mass x volume) of the displaced fluid. Continents are buoyant crust floating on denser mantle, so a 4 km high mountain range must have a 20 km deep root. According
