Muscles and Bones
Muscles and Bones offers teachers 10 activities that help students understand how the body's muscles and bones work. The activities in this guide help students explore important questions related to muscles and bones in living things; such as: Do you know which foods have lots of calcium for your bones? What are you doing to keep your muscles strong? and How do your bones and muscles work together?
If you watch the moon every night, you see its shape appear to change. Does the moon really change shape? Of course not, but its appearance from Earth certainly changes. How does this work? The answer lies within the part of the moon that receives sunlight, and the part of the moon that does not receive sunlight.
Software Engineering for Web Applications
Teaches basics of designing a dynamic web site with a database back end, including scripting languages, cookies, SQL, and HTML with the goal of building such a site as the main (group) project Emphasizes computer-human interface and the graphical display of information. Crucial to the project is the identification of a client with whom the group must work with throughout the month, designing specifications, implementing them, reviewing and evaluating, and testing. This is a real-life client who
Listening, writing, vocabulary, grammar: Hello, ich heisse Jürgen Schnellinger
At the end of this lesson you can write a short note (an email) in which you introduce yourself. You especially practice your vocabulary relating to your home and profession. You practice the use of personal pronouns.
Webquest: The Split Brain
The brain is made up of two halves, the hemispheres. These hemispheres are united to one another through a system consisting of millions of nerve fibers. Therefore, each hemisphere is continually informed about what is happening in the other. What happens if the connection is broken?
Here are some fun games and activities to help with understanding and using addition.
Treasure Hunt in Alaska
This is a Web-based story of three children who venture out to find their great-grandfather's treasure box that was lost in the remote state of Alaska. Using simple terminology, the story integrates complex Earth and Space science concepts, such as the formation of gold deposits and the operation of satellites. The children model creative thinking, acquire and interpret radar images, plan a treasure hunt, work systematically, and learn about Alaska. They also exhibit the successes and setbacks o
The Great Pyramid at Giza
The object of this problem is to estimate the number of people required to build the Great Pyramid at Giza in Egypt. This pyramid is nearly 150 m tall* and 230 m wide at the base. The average block of stone used in building the pyramid has dimensions .66 m x 1.00 m x 1.50 m. These blocks were quarried at a site on the Giza Plateau that shall be taken to be about 5 km away although it may have been closer. The ancient Egyptians transported these blocks from the quarry to the pyramid on wooden sle
A Quantitative Study of Litter and Soil Invertebrates Utilizing the Berlese Funnel
This exercise is meant to familiarize students with invertebrates that inhabit litter and soil and to help them appreciate the importance of these organisms in the environment.
A practical plan for implementing investigative laboratories
This resource outlines methods developed to promote investigative instead of demonstrative laboratory exercises as means of teaching concepts and introducing students to the scientific process. Students are guided through a variety of modular studies from which they can then formulate and test their own hypotheses.
A Laboratory Introduction to DNA Restriction Analysis
This workshop serves as an introduction to laboratory exercises in molecular biology.
A Guided Inquiry in a Computer-based Biology Lab
Computer technology is used by the research teams of 3-4 students to search for background information for the guided inquiry, organize this information into a concept map, complete an electronic template (the TLNB: Team Lab Notebook), and analyze data with Microsoft Excel. A computer projection system is used to present their findings to the other teams. This format can be adapted to do open and guided inquiry laboratories in biology for both the major and non-major student. In addition it can
The Road to Copenhagen: a global deal on climate change

In Fuse Piece (Calgary) Haegele uses Visco (a fireworks wick) to create a site-specific video around the area of Truck Gallery. This fuse burns across various sidewalks and background scenes of downtown Calgary, but never reaches its destination, provoking a feeling of anticipation that is ultimately unfulfilled.
The exhibition was based around the theme of free will and had an international group of artists addressing this topic using a variety of media. The site was an old bunker in the former East Berlin underneath an old warehouse that had previously been used to produce tanks during the Second World War. “Daylight Piece” is a response to the space using 14 daylight-balanced fluorescent tubes strategically placed in an abandoned stairwell to give the appearance that the stairs are leading out
Cold storage room mold growth
Cold storage rooms have perfect conditions for mold growth. Here's why: the lower temperature and limited air movement in these types of rooms present ideal conditions for condensation and moisture build-up, which in turn is ideal for mold growth. When the warm, heated air in the home hits the cool concrete walls of this area, it will reach its "dew point" and condense on the cold surface. The moisture from the condensation will not dry easily because there is limited ventilation or heat to allo
CEPIAH, a method for Evaluation and Design of Pedagogical Hypermedia
We are working on a method, called CEPIAH. We propose a web based system used to help teachers to design multimedia documents and to evaluate their prototypes. Our tool integrates two modules such as EMPI (Evaluation of Multimedia Pedagogical and Interactive software), and SP/UL/FC, a method for designing pedagogical hypermedia. The EMPI module is used to evaluate multimedia software used in educational context. We structured a knowledge base composed of a list of evaluation criteria, grouped th

General Human Anatomy - Fall 2006. The functional anatomy of the human body as revealed by gross and microscopic examination.
Effet d'un dispositif de communication médiatisée synchrone dans une tâche de résolution de prob
Cette étude examine l'incidence d'un dispositif de communication médiatisée synchrone (messagerie instantanée) sur les interactions d'enfants de CM1 dans une tâche de co-résolution d'un problème. Les enfants réalisent une tâche de sélection de phrases importantes d'un récit d'abord individuellement puis avec un camarade de classe. Certains enfants collaborent dans une situation de face à face (7 dyades) et d'autres utilisent un dispositif de communication médiatisée synchrone (8 dy
