Finding Common Ground
Finding common ground helps students make informed decisions to conserve temperate forests in the United States and central China, habitat of the endangered giant panda. Through classroom activities, on-line simulations, and field investigations students learn about the important role temperate forests play in local and global ecosystems. Action steps culminate in a Class Conservation Action Plan. In the course of this curriculum students locate the biome in which they live, explore a local habi
The Spins package is a self-contained file for the teaching of measurement and time evolution of spin-1/2 systems in quantum mechanics. The file contains ready-to-run OSP programs and a set of curricular materials. The material focuses on single and multiple measurements of different ensembles of identically prepared spin-1/2 particles. The OSP Collection provides curriculum resources that engage students in physics, computation, and computer modeling. Computational physics and computer modeling
An introduction to business cultures
Disney and Google are just two companies renowned for their 'business culture'. Have you ever wondered why the company you work for is different from others? This unit explores how the concept of culture developed to the point where it is now possible to see and (feel) the difference between companies.
Blood flow of moving Lumbriculus
Observe blood flow and muscle contractions in each body segment of Lumbriculus variegates (note how blood flows in relation to the worm turning in the capillary tube).
Artemia inquiry lab
Artemia blood has blood cells that circulate in an open circulatory system.
One reason why ticks are considered to be arachnids is because they do not have antennae like insects do. Ticks suck blood from animals and are sometimes difficult to remove from the host's skin.
Aquatic Animal Skeleton - Backbone
The backbone of an aquatic animal allows it to be very flexible under water. It usually extends into a tail and is classified as a gliding joint.

Psychiatric Epidemiology reviews descriptive and analytic epidemiology for major mental disorders of childhood, adulthood, and late adult life. The course will also examine issues of classification and the nosology of psychiatric disorders as well as operational case definitions and the measurement techniques to enhance field surveys and risk factor research.
Principles of Industrial Hygiene
Principles of Industrial Hygiene provides an introduction to the field of industrial hygiene and to occupational health in general. The instructor focuses on introducing concepts, terminology, and methodology in the practice of industrial hygiene and identifies resource materials. The class would benefit those wishing to pursue a Master's degree in industrial hygiene, those wishing to complete a certificate in occupational health, or for students in allied health fields needing a basic understan
Statistical Reasoning I
Statistical Reasoning in Public Health provides an introduction to selected important topics in biostatistical concepts and reasoning through lectures, exercises, and bulletin board discussions. It represents an introduction to the field and provides a survey of data and data types. Specific topics include tools for describing central tendency and variability in data; methods for performing inference on population means and proportions via sample data; statistical hypothesis testing and its appl
Estimation and Control of Aerospace Systems, Spring 2004
This course focuses on the design of control systems. Topics covered include: frequency domain and state space techniques; control law design using Nyquist diagrams and Bode plots; state feedback, state estimation, and the design of dynamic control laws; and elementary analysis of nonlinearities and their impact on control design. There is extensive use of computer-aided control design tools. Applications to various aerospace systems, including navigation, guidance, and control of vehicles, are
