The Effect of Aging on Cognitive Function: Nature/Nurture
Explores how the study of identical twins can help determine how factors such as lifestyle and diet may contribute to individual differences in the aging process.
Applying the Learning Cycle Approach to Digestive Systems and the Principles of Structure-Function a
The three parts of the learning-cycle strategy student exploration, concept formation, and concept application are the framework on which student understanding of 1 the interrelation of structure and function and 2 the coexistence of unity and the diversity among organisms are designed.
Highlight the rationale behind symbolic operations used to solve a linear equation with this tool that displays changes in the graphic and area models of functions as you change the value of each symbolic element.
Algebra is Awesome!
This project will help you understand patterns which is one of the foundations of algebra.
To What Extent Do Economic Conditions Determine the Outcome of Presidential Elections?
Students consider how economic performance is evaluated and are introduced to four major indicators of macroeconomic performance: growth rate of real income, unemployment rate, inflation rate, misery index. They complete a worksheet comparing changes in these indicators with the outcomes of U.S. presidential elections from 1960 to 1992 and examine the influence of economic conditions on the likelihood of the incumbent party winning an election.
When I started teaching this subject I found three kinds of texts. There were applications books that avoid proofs and cover the linear algebra only as needed for their applications. There were advanced books that assume that students can understand their elegant proofs and know how to answer the homework questions having seen only one or two examples. And, there were books that spend a good part of the semester multiplying matrices and computing determinants and then suddenly change level to wo

Use of Basic Laboratory Equipment: Episode 4 - Function generator
How to use a signal/function generator.
Children's Heart Conditions (Part 1)
About the Video: Heart disease is an important issue—not just for adults, but also for children. They can be born with congenital heart defects or develop other types of heart problems. In this interview, an expert in pediatric cardiology talks with Ellen Beth Levitt about the diagnosis and treatment of a variety of heart conditions that affect children. Part one of this two-part program addresses the following topics: Infants and heart Congenital heart defects Genetic heart defects Birt

UCalc: Continuity of a function - an example. Chris Tisdell UNSW Sydney
I discuss and solve a simple example involving the continuity of a function at a point. The ideas use the basic limit definition of continuity. Both algebraic and geometric properties are discussed. Such problems are seen in first-year university courses.
UCalc: Differentiability of a function - an example. Chris Tisdell UNSW Sydney
This video discusses and solves a simple example invoivng the differentiability of a function. The ideas involve both the concepts of continuity and differentiability, and their limit definitions. Such ideas are seen in first-year mathematics courses.
Fashion and Function
A corset's engineered strictness defines the shape of the 18th-century woman. Journeywoman Brooke Welborn explains the trend.

Math Literature Connections: Patterns and Algebra
Ideas and activities that use Two of Everything, One Grain of Rice and the King's Chessboard to introduce students to function machines and input/output tables. Links to appropriate templates are also provided.
Algebra: Growing Patterns
Introduce elementary students to the concept of functions by investigating growing patterns. Visual patterns formed with manipulatives are especially effective for elementary students and allow them to concretely build understanding as they first reproduce, then extend the pattern to the next couple of stages.
Get Lucky and Algebra Jeopardy
"Get Lucky" is a fast-paced thinking game that requires students to be creative in the ways that they can manipulate basic operators and randomly given integers to reach a "lucky number." "Algebra Jeopardy" is a team-based activity that tests the knowledge students have acquired in the classroom with review questions categorized by topic. The combination of these games is appropriate for students in 6th through 9th grade (Algebra 1).
