It's In Your Pocket
The Articles of Confederation gave both the United States Congress and the individual states the authority to issue money and regulate its value. The money issued in one state was of no value when the residents of that state traveled to another state. The Constitution set forth the powers of Congress.

Basic Electronics: Uncovering OHM's Law
In this simulation you will investigate relationships between voltage, resistance, and current that exists in an electric circuit. You will adjust voltage of the power source and resistance of the resistor and then use digital multimeter to obtain measurements. Then you will record these measurements and look for relationships that exist between voltage, resistance, and current.

Go Far Car Ramps
Developed for use with Jefferson Lab's Go Far Cars experiment, this simple ramp can easily be set to four different height settings. The ramp settings are uniformly spaced, so the amount of gravitational potential energy given to an object at the top of the ramp increases by a constant amount as the ramp is placed at higher settings. The instructions provided here are of devices that have been built for Jefferson Lab's Science Education program. The difficulty of construction varies from project

Jurisdiction in Cyberspace
At its core, jurisdiction is about the boundaries of a sovereign's exercise of its power. What are reasonable constraints on its reach, such that faraway or otherwise unconnected people and institutions can be called to account by the sovereign? Closely related are concepts of choice of law - exactly which sovereign's law to apply to a situation that spans multiple jurisdictions - and venue, which determines the physical location in which the parties are best served to settle their dispute.

How to Predict the Future(s), Spring 2009
Over the last century, there have been many spectacularly bad predictions of how technology will evolve and how it will be used—and a few almost clairvoyant forecasts of technology trends. This course will investigate both. By examining predictions made about the Internet, video on demand, cellular telephony, nuclear power, and other technologies, students will attempt to discern why some predictions work and most don’t. Much of the course will be devoted to techniques in scenario planning a
