Following Children's Ideas in Mathematics
An unprecedented long-term study conducted by Rutgers University
followed the development of mathematical thinking in a randomly
selected group of students for 12 years - from 1st grade through high
school - with surprising results. In an overview of the study, we look
at some of the conditions that made their math achievement possible.

Inventing Notations
We learn how to foster and appreciate students' notations for their
richness and creativity, and we look at some of the possibilities that
early work on problems that engage students in creating notation
systems might open up for students as they move on toward algebra.

Workshop 3: When Rubber Meets the Road
A rubber band twisted around the axle of a plastic car provides the force that moves the car forward. In this workshop, fifth-grade students continue their exploration of force and motion by recording and comparing the distance a vehicle travels under various conditions. Students predict the distance the car will travel by counting the number of twists in the rubber band

Workshop 8: Wind and Weather
Climactic conditions in each season are not just the result of the tilt of the Earth's axis. In this workshop, they examine the effect of light on the weather. The path of light is followed as it enters the atmosphere, and is absorbed, reflected, and radiated as heat by the land and by the water. A fifth grade classroom is observed as they explore these phenomena.

Re-Wiring the Brain
Neuroscientist Michael Merzenich lectures on the secrets of the brain's ability to actively re-wire itself. He discusses his research into ways to harness the brain's plasticity to enhance our skills and recover lost function. The ability of the brain to grow and change as we develop is a complex process that progresses in a predictable way.

Peachtree Rock Heritage Preserve: The Longleaf Pine Ecosystem
Conservationists know that the Longleaf Pine Forests of the Southern U.S. consist of much more than just its trees. They are complete ecosystems of plants, animals and natural processes including fire, rain and soil mineralization. Estimates show that over the last century, longleaf pine ecosystems have dwindled to less than 3 percent. Once thought to be inexhaustible, these forests were exploited for their lumber and turpentine products. Today, restoring these habitats to pre-settlement conditi

What Neurology Can Tell Us about Human Nature - October 15, 2009
Studies of neurological patients can provide insight into the workings of the brain and suggest new treatments. The first section of the lecture will focus on phantom limbs as a key to understanding brain functions. We show that far from having fixed connections, even the basic “wiring ” of the brain is constantly being modified in response to changing sensory inputs. This has theoretical implications as well as practical implications for recovery of function from stroke, phantom pain, and
