Monster sunspot groups appear on the Sun!
Late in 2009 and early 2010, two very large sunspot groups popped up on the Sun. These two animations shows those groups as seen by the SOHO spacecraft. The first is in visible light, and the second in far ultraviolet which shows magnetic activity associated with the sunspots. Watch as the Sun rotates; you get a cool 3D effect. Note that some data are missing, so the rotation isn't smooth. In the second animation a frame flashes up which says "CCD Bakeout" which is a standard cleaning process f

RES.18-001 Calculus Online Textbook (MIT)
Published in 1991 by Wellesley-Cambridge Press, the book is a useful resource for educators and self-learners alike. It is well organized, covers single variable and multivariable calculus in depth, and is rich with applications. In addition to the Textbook, there is also an online Instructor's Manual and a student Study Guide. Prof. Strang has also developed a related series of videos, Highlights of Calculus, on the basic ideas of calculus.The 2010 second edition of the Calculus textbook
That's What Reading Is All About
This is a song by Sesame Street that teaches how to blend letters to sound out a word. Muppets demonstrate how to blend individual letters together. Say each letter loud and clear, run them all together, and smooth them out. (1:59)
2011 Global Civil Society Yearbook launch
The 2011 Yearbook provides a critical examination of the ways global civil society promotes and delivers social justice. How does the 'global' make a difference to traditional concepts of social justice? Pierre Calame is director of the Fondation Charles Léopold Mayer for the Progress of Humankind. Judy El-Bushra is Programme Manager of Africa Great Lakes Region and Researcher at International Alert. Hakan Seckinelgin is a lecturer in international social policy in the department of social poli

Lutilisation dun arbre des tâches pour concevoir et analyser des situations dapprentissage :
Afin de prendre en compte les difficultés que les élèves ont pour donner du sens aux activités expérimentales, ce qui leur fait perdre de vue lobjectif initial du T.P. et les connaissances visées, nous proposons de leur faire concevoir le protocole des expériences. À travers trois exemples de situations de T.P. mises au point et expérimentées dans des classes de Terminale S, nous montrons comment la structuration du protocole expérimental dans un arbre de tâche, permet d'analyser e
Redisplaying the 19th-20th Century European Collection at the Fitzwilliam Museum
Hear curator Jane Munro talk about the Museum's mission to refurbish and redisplay one of its most popular galleries, and learn more about three painters featured on its walls: Augustus John, William Nicholson and William Orpen.
In this activity, students are introduced to faults. They will learn about different kinds of faults and understand their relationship to earthquakes. The students will build cardboard models of the three different types of faults as they learn about how earthquakes are formed.
The students work in teams of two to discover the relative positions of the Earth, Sun and Moon that produce the different phases of the Moon. The students will be given a Styrofoam ball that they will attach to a pencil so that it looks like a lollipop. This ball will be the Moon, the students will be the Earth and a hanging lightbulb will be the Sun. The students will move the “Moon” around them to discover the different phases. They will fill in the position of the Moon and its correspond
This unit introduces the topic of vectors. The subject is developed without assuming you have come across it before, but the unit assumes that you have previously had a basic grounding in algebra and trigonometry, and how to use Cartesian coordinates for specifying a point in a plane.

Inelastic Collision of Particles with Structure Model
The EJS Inelastic Collision of Particles with Structure model displays the inelastic collision between two equal "particles" with structure on a smooth horizontal surface. Each particle has two microscopic elements which interact through a massless spring of stiffness k and natural length L. The mass of one of the microscopic elements and the spring length of the connector spring can be changed via textboxes. You can modify this simulation if you have EJS installed by right-clicking within the p
