Cardiovascular Pathophysiology
The Introduction to Cardiovascular Pathophysiology course provides the students with two main objectives. It delineates the material students are expected to understand and have recalled from the basic cardiac physiology lectures and it expands on the discussion of the hemodynamic perturbations of cardiac function.

Calculus on the Web
COW is an internet utility for learning and practicing calculus. The principal purpose of COW is to provide you, the student or interested user, with the opportunity to learn and practice problems in calculus (and in the future other topics in mathematics) in a friendly environment via the internet. The most important feature of the COW is that you get to know whether your answer is correct almost immediately. It is as if you had a tutor looking over your shoulder and helping you along as you wo

The Snowball Earth
This website contains an informational paper by Paul Hoffman and Daniel Schragg at Harvard University. The paper describes many lines of evidence supporting a theory that the entire Earth was ice-covered 600-700 million years ago. Each glacial period lasted for millions of years and ended violently under extreme greenhouse conditions. These climate shocks triggered the evolution of multicellular animal life, and challenge long-held assumptions regarding the limits of global change. Users can rea

Radioactive Decay Model
The EJS Radioactive Decay Model simulates the decay of a radioactive sample using discrete random events. It displays the number of radioactive nuclei as a function of time. You can change the initial number of nuclei and the decay constant as well as changing the plot to a semi-log plot.

Lennard-Jones Potential Model
The EJS Lennard-Jones Potential model shows the dynamics of a particle of mass m within this potential. You can drag particle to change its position and you can drag the energy-line to change its total energy. The Lennard-Jones potential function is a reasonably accurate model of interactions between noble gas atoms.  The binding energy epsilon is the depth of the potential well and minimum molecular separation are set equal to unity.  This simulation uses uses a natural system of units the m

Stellar Wind Disruption by an Orbiting Neutron Star: High X-Ray Luminosity
A tiny neutron star orbits incessantly around a massive star with a diameter a million times larger than its own. The high luminosity of the massive star drives a strong wind from its surface. The neutron star crashes through this wind at over 300 kilometers per second. The gravity and X-ray luminosity of the neutron star act to disrupt the wind, producing an extended wake of dense gas trailing behind the neutron star. This simulation, in the reference frame of the neutron star, shows conditions

Soil: The Great Decomposer
The purpose of this resource is to understand that soil, under different environmental conditions, plays a role in the decomposition of organic materials. Students use bottle experiments to observe changes in the decomposition of vegetable scraps. Students vary temperature, moisture, and light conditions to determine the conditions that best facilitate the decomposition of organic material in soil.
