1.2 The myth of the artist
Accounts of Caravaggio's life are filled with suggestions of murder and intrigue. But does knowing more about this dark artist's experiences help us to interpret his art? Or does understanding his motivations cloud their true meaning? This unit explores the biographical monograph, one of the most common forms of art history writing.
Relative risk reduction and absolute risk reduction
This RLO considers how to measure and interpret the magnitude of effect in clinical trial results using relative risk reduction (RRR) and absolute risk reduction (ARR).

4.1 Introduction Some projects, especially large-scale ones, will rely on a team, not just an individual, for their successful implementation. Unlike permanent work teams, a project team's objective is the achievement of a finite and specific task – the project. Its performance, especially its ability to perform effectively as a group, is therefore critical to a project's outcome. However, it may prove relatively difficult for a project team to work well together at the outset, since its members are often d

How does the computer's peculiar binary world of digital entities differ from our analogue world of colour, sound, taste and touch? This unit explores the way in which information, in the form of text, still and moving images, and sound can cross the boundary from the analogue universe into a digital world.
The Use of the LEGO MINDSTORMS System in Modeling: The Foraging Behavior and Strategies of Simple An
The LEGO MINDSTORMS system provides a rich simulation environment for evolutionary adaptation and animal behavior. It includes both hardware and software that may be considered analogous to anatomical features and behavioral repertoire respectively. The system is off-the-shelf which minimizes set-up and preparation time. Conversely, its components are capable of considerable customization and expansion if desired. The MINDSTORMS system makes clear that form, function, and behavior of animals are
Using Microbial Eukaryotes for Laboratory Instruction and Student Inquiry
Because of their ease of handling, relatively fast life cycles, modest space and equipment needs, and interesting biology, microbial eukaryotes are excellent organisms for laboratory instruction from the introductory to the advanced level. Information regarding the care, maintenance, manipulation, and basic observations of two specific microbial eukaryotes, the plasmodial slime mold Physarum and the ciliated protozoan Tetrahymena, are described. Exercises exploring growth, development, and behav
