Students extend their knowledge of the skeletal system to biomedical engineering design, specifically the concept of artificial limbs. Students relate the skeleton as a structural system, focusing on the leg as structural necessity. They learn about the design considerations involved in the creation of artificial limbs, including materials and sensors.
6.9 The personalised home
Are you a technophobe? Bluetooth, Ethernet WiFi – are they terms that mean nothing to you? This unit will gently guide you to an understanding of how devices 'talk' to each other and what technologies and processes are involved. You will also look at wired and wireless communication technologies, introducing you to some of the key methods involved.
Genetic Testing for Cancer: Is It Worth It?
Please visit: www.mdanderson.org/prevention for more information regarding prevention and screening How often you should get tested for breast cancer depends on your chances for getting the disease. If you are at increased risk for breast cancer, you may need to start screening exams at an earlier age, get additional tests or be tested more often. Learn when genetic testing makes sense for you.

5.1 Why do plates move?
Plate tectonics is an earth sciences topic that attracts a good deal of interest, given that it a topic very often featured in popular science programmes on TV and radio. It is a subject that have strong visual appeal. The coverage is S279 is self-contained, up to date and is written in a way that will be accessible to those with interest and motivation, all the more so for those who have some pre-existing scientific understanding.

Boxed In and Wrapped Up
Students find the volume and surface area of a rectangular box (e.g., a cereal box), and then figure out how to convert that box into a new, cubical box having the same volume as the original. As they construct the new, cube-shaped box from the original box material, students discover that the cubical box has less surface area than the original, and thus, a cube is a more efficient way to package things. Students then consider why consumer goods generally aren't packaged in cube-shaped boxes, ev

Highlights of London Business School's Global Leadership Summit 2011, held on 23 May. The theme of the Summit was Innovation.
Features a close look at the first annual Ontario Undergraduate "NeuroXchange Conference" held at McMaster University. Including interviews with some amazing Mac undergraduate "minds" as they discuss their research on the human brain.
In the neurological assessment of the child don't neglect the general physical examination. Some of the parts of the general examination that are particularly important to note are the following: Somatic growth - measure height and weight and compare percentiles with head circumference; Search for dysmorphic features - carefully study the face especially the midface. There is the old adage that the face reflects the brain because anomalies of the midface are often associated with underlying brai
Testing deep tendon reflexes on this baby demonstrates that they are present. This is important in trying to sort out if the baby has low tone from an upper motor neuron lesion or if he has a lower motor neuron or muscle disorder. In older children and adults, an upper motor lesion causes spasticity but in babies an upper motor neuron lesion can cause hypotonia. A disease of the lower motor neuron is unlikely with the deep tendon reflexes being present. The baby could still have a muscle disorde

This read-aloud is Billy Bob Buzzard written by Terry Barnett Williams and illustrated by My Way in Education. In this story Billy Bob Buzzard likes to swing and sing. Everyone learns to be ok with being different. There is a pause, next, back button on each page. Each word is highlighted as it is read by narrator. This is a good resource to help build a literacy rich environment in the elementary classroom. It would work well in a listening
Students revisit Bernoulli's Principle (Lesson 1 of the Airplanes unit) and learn how engineers use this principle to design airplane wings. Airplane wings create lift by changing the pressure of the air around it. This is the first of four lessons exploring the four key forces in flight: lift, weight, thrust and drag.
