Students learn about the causes, composition and types of volcanoes. They begin with an overview of the Earth's interior and how volcanoes form. Once students know about how a volcano functions, they learn how engineers predict eruptions. In a class demonstration, students watch and measure a mock volcanic eruption and observe the phases of an eruption, seeing how a volcano gets its shape and provides us with clues to predict a blast.
Engineers Speak for the Trees
Students begin by reading Dr. Seuss' The Lorax as an example of how over-development can cause long-lasting environmental destruction. Students discuss how to balance the needs of the environment with the needs of human industry. Student teams are asked to serve as natural resource engineers, city planning engineers and civil engineers with the task to replant the nearly destroyed forest and develop a sustainable community design that can co-exist with the re-established natural area.

Respond to non-conformance of food safety controls
A Food Safety Program enables food establishments to ensure food production methods are safe, hygienic and that they comply with food regulations and legislation. The Food Safety Program systematically identifies the food safety hazards that may be reasonably expected to occur in your workplace. It identifies where and how each hazard can be controlled, describes how these controls are to be monitored, the corrective action required if control conditions are not met, and
5.2 Frequency code
Hearing is a familiar and important human sense that is a topic naturally of interest to those who are curious about human biology. This unit will enable you to relate what you read to your own sensory experiences – and indeed many of the questions asked have exactly that function. This unit will be best understood by those with some biological understanding.
3.7.1 Averages: finding the middle of a group of numbers
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.

Gretchen am Spinnrade
This is a video of sheet music (including lyrics) of Schubert's Gretchen am Spinnrade; includes vocals and piano accompaniment. This would be useful for singers learning this piece. Run time 03:55.
Bytesize Science Presents: The Chemistry of Fireworks on Vimeo
From the sizzle of the fuse to the boom and burst of colors ––a new American Chemical Society (ACS) video brings you all of the exciting sights and sounds of Fourth of July fireworks. The Chemistry of Fireworks, part of the ACS Holiday Video Series, illustrates in brilliant high-definition detail how the familiar rockets and other neat products that light up the night sky all represent chemistry in action. The video, released today, features a demonstration by fireworks expert John A. Conkli
Introduction to Reaction Mechanisms
In this video, Sal Khan offers an introduction to reaction Mechanisms. Mr. Khan uses the Paint Program (with different colors) to illustrate his points. Sal Khan is the recipient of the 2009 Microsoft Tech Award in Education. Please open the screen to 'full view' to see the small writing on a black screen.
Molecular and Empirical Forumlas from Percent Composition
The instructor discusses a word problem concerning Molecular and Emperical Forumlas from Percent Composition. This is Example 2.9 from the Kotz Chemistry book. Mr. Khan uses computer software for demonstration. The screen is a little 'busy' so the viewer may want to open the screen to 'full screen' to see all more clearly. (10:34)
Magic Sand: Stays Dry when Wet
How can something submerged in water stay dry? When ordinary sand gets wet, the result is a clumpy mess. However, "Magic Sand" begins as normal looking sand, until it's coated with a substance that repels water. This special coating keeps the sand dry even after it has been dumped into a container of water. Build castles and other structures under the water, then simply pour the water off when you're finished and the sand is still dry. Students are going to like to watch this and learn how it is
Chemistry Of Cooking
A biochemist and cook explains that cooking is all about chemistry and knowing some facts can help chefs understand why recipes go wrong. Because cooking is essentially a series of chemical reactions, it is helpful to know some basics. This video is a must for all students to watch as it shows how science is everywhere.
How Does Math Apply in Cooking?
In cooking, math is applied frequently to convert different units
of measurement and adjust the ratio of a recipe. Avoid messing up a
recipe and cooking bad food by getting measurements right. A math professor explains how to make adjustments in recipes using ratios and why math is important to cooking.
The Party: The Secret World Of China's Communist Rulers [Audio]
Speaker(s): Richard McGregor | China's political and economic growth in the past three decades is one of astonishing, epochal dimensions. The country has undergone a remarkable transformation on a scale similar to the industrial revolution in the West. The most remarkable part of this transformation, however, has been largely left untold the central role of the Chinese Communist Party. As an organization alone, the Party is a phenomenon of unique scale and power. With more than seventy-three mil

6.3 Clarifying purposefulness Research conducted by Ralph Stacey (1993) shows how business managers often behave in a way contrary to espoused policies and expectations. Rather than adhering to conventions of long-term planning, and accepted orthodoxies and procedures, they actually tend to make a succession of unrelated, adaptive responses to changing situations as the need arises. This is often, and rather disparagingly, labelled muddle-through or crisis management but can result in adaptive action and organisation.
