Middle School Portal: Math and Science Pathways (MSP2)
In this interactive exercise, students in grade 6 and up determine if a Mars rover should look for evidence of life on or underneath the Martian surface. To make this determination, students process visual and textual information about how four factors (cosmic radiation, ultraviolet radiation, temperature, and presence of water) impact Earth and Mars. They look at each factor in isolation by reading a brief explanation of its effect on life, analyzing cartoon-like images of its influence on Eart
Applications of Chemometrics
Examples of the use of chemometrics in clinical, petrochemical, and industrial analysis, from chromatographic and mass spectrometric data (PDF).
Course on the use of radionuclides in analytical chemistry. Types of radioactive decay are discussed as well as the techniques of scintillation counting, neutron activation analysis, and gamma spectroscopy.
What does life need?
Here's an interactive exercise about the needs of all living things. The introduction explains that scientists can use the knowledge of life requirements to guide their search for life on Mars. Players identify which of these six items are necessary for life: sunlight, oxygen, water, meat, energy, and raw materials. If any wrong answers are given, players are shown the number of correct answers and are given access to Learn More buttons. All the Learn More sections are similar. In them, players

Woman reading a letter by the fireplace
A woman reading a letter is seated at a table with a silver tea set. Behind her, the mantle over the fireplace holds two lamps and a clock. China cupboards are built into the walls on both sides of the fireplace. Above the mantle and cupboards is a shelf holding deocrative plates. Elaborate wallpaper goes from this shelf up to the ceiling. Sunlight fills the room.,The upper left corner of the image is missing.
Exploring the Environment
This site features 25 online modules that put students in problem-based learning scenarios. In one module, students predict the impact of increased carbon dioxide on the wheat yield in Kansas. In another, they predict weather 48 hours in advance. Topics include coral reefs, climate change, the Everglades, mountain gorillas, rainforests, volcanoes, water quality, and ozone depletion.

Canary in a Coal Mine (MWV16)
Coral reefs are dying a death of a thousand cuts and their disappearance threatens not only the incredibly diverse ecosystem that depends on them, but also human health and welfare. In this episode of MicrobeWorld Video marine scientists Ove Hoegh-Guldberg, Ph.D., chair of marine studies at the University of Queensland in Brisbane, Australia, and Kiho Kim, Ph.D., director of the environmental studies program at American University, explain the important relationship between microbes and corals,
Carbon on the Move
Through a reading, demonstration stations, and completion of a puzzle, students will recognize how respiration and photosynthesis move carbon through the earth system, how fossil fuels were formed, and how human activities have altered this movement on a global scale.
Can Gases Act as a Greenhouse?
In this lab, students will infer a potential for increasing levels of atmospheric carbon dioxide leading to global warming by contrasting the temperature rise in a CO2 rich atmosphere to that of normal air when both environments are exposed to a bright light in a controlled experiment.

Bored to death: William Inge’s women and The feminine mystique
Ever since Robert Brustein’s review of The Dark at the Top of the Stairs in November 1958, the role of the female characters in William Inge’s plays has been of interest to a number of critics. At that time, Brustein claimed that Inge’s female characters were "men-taming women" who were castrative to their husbands. After the publication of his review, many critics followed in suit and also described Inge’s women in the same terms; however, only one of these critics, Janet Juhnke, examin
Where the two kingdoms merge: the struggle for balance between national and religious identity among
When the German Reich was created in 1871, it was an artificial construct born of Hohenzollern power projection and not of nationalism. Otto von Bismarck’s Realpolitik used the power of nationalism to unite Germans behind the Kaiser, but also divisively to keep liberals and potential opponents of the Kaiser firmly divided. The Kulturkampf was one such set of policies that attempted to suppress Catholic political authority while dividing Germany’s religious groups against one another. The Kul
