Systems thinking and practice
What is systems thinking and practice? The essence of systems thinking and practice is in ‘seeing’ the world in a particular way, because how you ‘see’ things affects the way you approach situations or undertake specific tasks. This unit will help you to learn about the problems of defining a system and meet some of the key concepts used in systems theory: boundary, environment, positive and negative feedback, etc.
A Unified Theory of a Law
The boundaries that define a law have been discovered, explored and mapped. A Unified Theory of a Law is the map. Take it with you on your journey through the legal world.

Hoopfest and Torchlight Parade
Both the Illinois State men's and women's basketball teams began preparation for their respective 2010-11 campaigns, as the programs hosted their annual Redbird HoopFest at 7 p.m., inside historical Horton Field House. Hoopfest was held at Horton Field House for the third-consecutive year, as the venue served as the home court for the Redbirds from 1963-89. The event featured a three-point shooting contest, a dunk contest and intrasquad scrimmages by both teams. Visit IllinoisStateHomecoming.co
Introductory Physics II
Welcome to the NROC Introductory Physics course. This course is divided into two semesters and is designed to acquaint you with topics in classical and modern physics. The first semester discusses topics in Newtonian mechanics including: kinematics, laws of motion, work and energy, systems of particles, momentum, circular motion, oscillations, and gravitation. The first semester concludes with topics in fluid mechanics, thermal physics, and kinetic theory. The second semester discusses the topic
Introduction to dynamics : document transcript
This is a document transcript about Introduction to Dynamics (Edexcel HN Unit: Engineering Science (NQF L4)). The basic concepts associated with some elements of dynamic engineering systems and calculations are discussed. The theory associated with linear and angular motion, energy and simple harmonic motion are outlined with sample calculations for each topic. This open educational resource was released through the Higher Education Academy Engineering Subject Centre Open Engineering Resource
Advances in nanotechnology
In this podcast, Professor Moriarty discusses nanotechnology, and how it has led to a convergence of the traditional sciences. He talks about the commercial applications of nanotechnology such as hard disk technology in laptops, stain free materials and fabrics, self-cleaning windows and advanced water filtration. He also touches on some of the myths about nanotechnology as well as some of the real dangers of Nanotechnology and the steps governments are taking to regulate it. Professor Moriarty
Orchestrating cell separation in plants : what are the risks and benefits?
In this podcast, Professor Roberts from the School of Biosciences discusses his research into the mechanism responsible for regulating cell separation in plants. In particular how plants ‘shed’ parts of themselves such as leaves or fruit. Professor Roberts explores the potential application of his research, through prevention or encouraging of the ‘shedding’ process, agricultural harvests could potentially be increased or even synchronised. Professor Roberts also discusses the resistance
Quantum Mechanics I
A set of resources (lecture notes, exercises and figures) linked to a second year course in quantum mechanics. Both processed files (html/xhtml/pdf) and the raw inputs are provided, together with scripts to convert the material. Part of the Skills for Scientists project.

Our taster sessions give students the chance to develop and build on the knowledge and understanding of a particular writing form. It's also an opportunity for you to develop the independent practice skills crucial to a professional writer and an opportunity to develop writing industry contacts. All MA Professional Writing students spend time exploring different forms of writing before deciding which area they wish to specialise. Specialisms might be in the field of Business Writing, Features W
Electrical fundamentals, use of meters and wiring diagrams, wiring repair. Theory, diagnosis, and repair of computer inputs, outputs, and communication systems. The use of electronic service information, the proper diagnostic process, and proper diagnostic service tools are emphasized. Recommended prerequisite: AUSV 1000.
Organic chemistry is important in many areas of industry and in the field of pharmaceuticals. In this module you will explore some of the key aspects of organic chemistry in the context of the design and delivery of drugs. This brings together issues of fundamental research, industrial scaling up of processes, environmental impact and patent law.
This session will introduce you to electric and magnetic fields. We’ll look at what we mean by a field and at what electric charge is and relate the two through Gauss’s theorem. From this we’ll derive Coulomb’s law for the force between charges. Then we’ll look at the concept of electrical potential which is related to the work done in moving a charge through a field. We’ll return to the notion of capacitance which we used in session 4, this time looking at how capacitance is compute
In this session we’ll begin with Faraday’s law of electromagnetic induction. We’ll describe and use the analogy between a current loop and a magnetic dipole and study the magnetic energy in various situations, including the energy density of a magnetic field. Finally we’ll look at magnetic forces from the point of view of the interaction between moving electrical charges, the Lorentz force law, and describe the force between current carry wires, the Biot-Savart law.
In this session we’ll look at certain macroscopic properties of solids that result from the quantum mechanical behaviour of electrons. This field of physics initially concerned just the behaviour of solids so was referred to as solid state physics. It has been called condensed matter physics since the late 1960s, when it was realised that the type of collective behaviour extended beyond that of electrons in solids to many other systems such as, for example, superfluids.
In this module you will be introduced to the study of education through the dimension of time. It is entitled ‘Educational Change and Continuity’ because it is concerned with processes of change within educational theory and practice and with theory and practice which has stayed the same for long periods of time. The latter include those perennial problems and enduring issues which all educationists have to face. During the course of the module, you will develop an understanding of change an
