Study of Place: Ocean Currents Exploration
Each two-week module in the Study of Place curriculum is framed by an historical event that makes a connection between the physical environment and human activity. The activities focus primarily on physical and earth science content, geography, and inquiry skills. Assessments and scoring rubrics, including a pre-assessment that can be used for both modules, are embedded in each module, providing opportunities for tracking student learning. The Ocean Currents Exploration module is framed by Benja

Step by Step Krebs cycle
These pages show the steps of the metabolic pathway called the Tricarboxylic Acid (TCA) cycle. Otherwise known as the citric acid cycle and the Krebs cycle. Data sheets, reaction diagrams and animations are provided for each step. Krebs cycle or the citric acid cycle or tricarboxylic acid cycle,occurs in mitochondria, is the common pathway to completely oxidize fuel molecules which mostly is acetyl CoA ,the product from the oxidative decarboxylation of pyruvate. It enters the cycle and passes

WISE - The Web-Based Inquiry Science Environment
The Web-based Inquiry Science Environment (WISE) is a free on-line science learning environment for students in grades 4-12. In WISE, students work on exciting inquiry projects on topics such as genetically modified foods, earthquake prediction, and the deformed frogs mystery. Students learn about and respond to contemporary scientific controversies through designing, debating, and critiquing solutions, all via the internet. Curriculum projects are complete and ready to use in the classroom. The

Conceptions de protocoles expérimentaux pour comprendre l'actualité sur le SIDA
The « sidaction » organised in march, show AIDS is always an actual subject. Studentsconceptions on this subject are not often scientific and stop them to decode medias informations. During a labwork, experimented in classes of « terminale scientifique », students will show that the antibodies combination with antigens is due to two molecules spatial complementarity.
Equal study: Lecture based automated video recording system for all
This paper presents a system, which (in one piece) captures the necessary video and sound equipment, interactive streaming video technology and virtual hypermedia environment into a new web based learning environment. In several steps a lecturer can prepare a video supported lecture, which is automatically synchronized with additional media (material, subtitles). Students can watch these lectures live or on demand. Later on additional form of subtitles can be simply added into the video and soun
From Mirroring to Guiding: A Review of State of the Art Technology for Supporting Collaborative Lear
We review a representative selection of systems that support the management of collaborative learning interaction, and characterize them within a simple classification framework. The framework distinguishes between mirroring systems, which display basic actions to collaborators, metacognitive tools, which represent the state of interaction via a set of key indicators, and coaching systems, which offer advice based on an interpretation of those indicators. The reviewed systems are further charact

Can kindergarten children be successfully involved in probabilistic tasks?
This paper describes a classroom teaching experiment, concerning the concept of probability, with children aged 5 in a kindergarten school. The teaching experiment was based on constructivist and interactionist theories about the learning of school mathematics and lasted one month. The collection of the information was based on the tape-recorded interviews with the children (each child was interviewed prior to the research program, at the end of the program and one month later) and the videotape
History of Economic Thought

The intent is to keep the text short to avoid discouraging readers who are being introduced to the ideas for the first time.
"A Message to Garca": Elbert Hubbard's Paean to Perseverance
The best-known image of America's 1898 war with Spain is that of Teddy Roosevelt on horseback charging with his Rough Riders up San Juan Hill in Cuba. While the Rough Riders fired the first shot in the war and were the first to raise the U.S. flag in Cuba, their exploits were greatly mythologized. Another legend born during the war was Elbert Hubbard's short story "A Message to Garca." Published as a book in 1898, 40 million copies had been printed by 1913. Many employers, taken with Hubbard's p
Coffee Break: Tutorial for NCBI Tools
