Rod Quantock says, "If climate change doesn't scare you, then you don't get the science." Fortunately Quantock does, and when he gives you his take on the physics, chemistry, biology, geology, palaeontology, cosmology and meteorology of climate science you'll get it too. And then... you'll be scared. It's win-win. Sounds like great fun doesn't? It's an edgy mix of panic and hysteria. But that's what you'd expect from someone whose comedy has been described as ‘medicinal'. In his irreverent

You might not realise it, but maths is an essential component of healthcare. In fact, sloppy calculations can have fatal consequences. This unit is a taster of Level 1 course materials for a Foundation Degree in health sciences, and is designed for those contemplating a future in the health services industry.
In this unit, we describe the theory of evolution by natural selection as proposed by Charles Darwin in his book, first published in 1859, On The Origin of Species by Means of Natural Selection, or The Preservation of Favoured Races in the Struggle for Life. We will look at natural selection as Darwin did, taking inheritance for granted, but ignoring the mechanisms underlying it.

SFU Canada Research Chairs Seminar Series: "Controlling the Surfaces of Matter" Byron Gates Canada Research Chair in Surface Chemistry, Department of Chemistry Mar 24, 2011 We aim to understand the scale to which the surface chemistry of materials can be uniformly manipulated and the robustness of these alterations. Of particular importance is our ability to alter the surface chemistry of materials on the nanoscale. Developments in nanotechnology have opened the doors to our ability to manip
In the problem, there is a truth-teller and a liar. If you ask the right
question which is, "What would the other guy say is the correct door?" The person will always give you the incorrect door. Therefore, you will know which one is the correct door.This 6:49 long video shows how to use logic to solve this problem. A good warm-up activity.
Scientific calculators are a wonderful invention, but they're only as good as the people who use them. If you often get an unexpected – or ridiculous – result when you press the ‘enter’ button, this unit is for you. Learn how to do a calculation correctly and get the right answer every time.
