Pluto and Charon
This lithograph shows the clearest view yet of the distant planet Pluto and its moon, Charon, as revealed by NASA's Hubble Space Telescope. The images are accompanied by a brief description and history, some statistical facts, and important dates in the exploration of Pluto.
"Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging: Data Acquisition and Analysis, Fall 2008"
" This team-taught multidisciplinary course provides information relevant to the conduct and interpretation of human brain mapping studies. It begins with in-depth coverage of the physics of image formation, mechanisms of image contrast, and the physiological basis for image signals. Parenchymal and cerebrovascular neuroanatomy and application of sophisticated structural analysis algorithms for segmentation and registration of functional data are discussed. Additional topics include: fMRI experi

The Effective Provision of Pre-School Education (EPPE) Project: Technical Paper 8b - Measuring the I
This Technical Paper describes the results of analyses of young children's social behavioural development during their time in pre-school. Equivalent analyses of the cognitive progress of children in the study have been conducted and the results are reported separately in EPPE Technical Paper 8a. Four aspects of social behavioural development have been studied, namely 'Independence & Concentration', 'Co-operation & Conformity', 'Peer Sociability' and 'Anti-social / Worried'. . A range of statist
How People Learn: Brain, Mind, Experience, and School: Expanded Edition (2000)
This page, in the National Academy Press website, gives the table of content of the book in the title of this site. As one of the "openbooks" from this press, the site allows one to search the book (approximately 400 pages) as well as download the complete book or selected portions of it. The site will be most useful to an analytical scientist interested in reading about current learning theories.
Middle School Portal: Math and Science Pathways (MSP2)
In this activity, students read graphs and interpret raw data to determine if there is a correlation between drinking soda and the rate of bone fractures in teenage girls. The activity is part of the Figure This! collection of 80 online mathematical challenges emphasizing real world uses of mathematics. Students are encouraged to organize data into tables to look for associations, but are cautioned that additional factors many influence the appearance of cause and effect. In other related math q
The "1OO-Year Flood"
This site describes how and when 100-year floods occur. It states that flood designations are based on statistical averages, not on the number of years between big floods. It also suggests that it would make more sense to refer to 100-year floods as 1-in-100 chance floods. This resource is a United States Geological Survey (USGS) Fact Sheet. It can be used in teaching quantitative skills.
Confronting Some Statistical Inference Misconceptions
This lesson poses a series of questions designed to challenge students' possible misconceptions of statistical inference and hypothesis testing. The lesson uses the statistical software, Fathom, and three datasets with information on the number of chips per canister distributed by a snack maker. The data can found at the relation address below.
The Role of the Elementary Principal in Promoting Parent Involvement: Evidence from Rural, Blue Ribb
The reauthorization of the Elementary and Secondary School Education Act has amplified the implications of including parents in the education process. The benefits of parental involvement coupled with the teachers' and parents’ role in promoting involvement have been researched and studied for many years. Few studies focus solely on the principal’s role in promoting parent involvement, however. This study will examine the specialized association and participation of rural elementary princ

Christmas Lighting Ceremony | University of St. Thomas
Thousands of outdoor Christmas lights will brighten the St. Paul campus again this year. The Nativity scene atop the university's Summit Avenue arches has a history spanning more than 50 years. The present scene with lighted statues is a relatively recent acquisition compared to the tradition of a Christmas crèche on campus. As long ago as 1948, campus clubs erected an outdoor Nativity scene for public enjoyment. About that time, Dr. Hugo Reny, a Vienna-born assistant professor of psychology, f
Technical Paper 10 - The Effective Provision of Pre-School Education (EPPE) Project: Intensive Case
Technical Paper 10 - Intensive study of selected centres. ISBN : 085473 601 8 In Technical Paper 10, data from 12 effective pre-school centres, reflecting good child outcomes, (cognitive and/or social behavioural) have been analysed to reveal a unique 'story' for each centre. The associated Researching Effective Pedagogy in the Early Years (REPEY, Siraj-Blatchford et al DfES Research Report 356) project enabled the addition of two reception classes to the 12 EPPE cases (i.e. 14 case study centre

Genesi e sviluppo delle teorie sul farsi della mente in Jerome Bruner (seconda lezione)
Quale origine ha l’esperienza? È il risultato dei nostri poteri essenzialmente associativi (Associazionismo) ovvero è la conseguenza d’uso delle nostre categorie innate di spazio e di tempo (Innatismo); è riducibile solo ai dati di esperienza sensoriale che noi accumuliamo come risposte agli stimoli ambientali (oggettivismo); è la prova della natura fisica e biologica dei nostri stati mentali (fisicalismo) ovvero, al contrario, l’asserzione dell’efficacia causale della mente stessa (
