Automata, Computability, and Complexity, Spring 2011
This course provides a challenging introduction to some of the central ideas of theoretical computer science. Beginning in antiquity, the course will progress through finite automata, circuits and decision trees, Turing machines and computability, efficient algorithms and reducibility, the P versus NP problem, NP-completeness, the power of randomness, cryptography and one-way functions, computational learning theory, and quantum computing. It examines the classes of problems that can and cannot
The Kaleidoscope by Douglas Dunn (poetry reading)
This sonnet shows just what an ideal length and form it is for capturing and examining the moment. The sonnet deals with an irreducible quantity of existence, a molecule of life. (Don't google that, I just made it up, really I did. I'm far too pleased by it - but that will wear off soon.) It has a parallel in the Haiku, which is 17 syllables, preferably all monosyllables, supposedly all that can be said in one breath, expressing one thought, metaphor or image. Here's one my mine: "You sa
Algebra Problem of the Week

We've Got the Power
In this lesson, students will research various sources of renewable energy. They will discover how each source can be used to generate electricity, the potential benefits and drawbacks of each and which source might best power their home or school. This lesson can be completed in 1-2 class periods.
Exploring Baking Powder
In this activity, students will use the recorded results from activity 5.2 to identify the substances in baking powder. They will then test combinations of these substances to find out which are the active ingredients in baking powder. There is a downloadable activity sheet that will be very helpful to educators, and will help students stay on track. An assessment sheet is also available on the activity page to keep track of students progress. There is also a step by step guide as to how to perf

Male Weedy Seadragon Carrying Eggs on Abdomen
This very short video gives excellent real life, close up footage of a male Weedy Seadragon carrying eggs on his abdomen. Weedy seadragons are one of only two species of seadragons, the second is known as the leafy seadragon (Phycodurus eques) due to the greater number of leaf-like appendages along its body. Seadragons resemble the seahorses to which they are related, having a bony-plated body and elongated snout; their tails are not prehensile however. This is a great resource to help buil
