Visualizing Magnetic Field Lines
In this activity, students take the age old concept of etch-a-sketch a step further. Using iron filings, students begin visualizing magnetic field lines. To do so, students use a compass to read the direction of the magnet's magnetic field. Then, students observe the behavior of iron filings near that magnet as they rotate the filings about the magnet. Finally, students study the behavior of iron filings suspended in mineral oil which displays the magnetic field in three dimensions.

Why Study Icons with Dr Mary Cunningham
Icons -- religious images from the eastern Churches -- are far more than religious images as seen in western churches: they enable an encounter between the observer and the mystery. In this video, Mary Cunningham, an expert on Orthodoxy, introduces them.

17.874 Quantitative Research Methods: Multivariate (MIT)
This course is the second semester in the statistics sequence for political science and public policy offered in the Political Science Department at MIT. The intellectual thrust of the course is a presentation of statistical models for estimating causal effects of variables. The model of an effect is a conditional mean (though we might imagine other effect). The notion of causality is the effect of one variable on another holding all else constant.

4.143 Immaterial Limits: Process and Duration (MIT)
This studio proposes to engage tectonics as a material process. By exploring transformation, indeterminacy and mutability inherent in material and landscape processes, students will be challenged to engage notions of duration as a design strategy for architecture and urbanism. While the second law of thermodynamics states that the material universe tends toward a state of increasing disorder, architects build and construct in opposition to these forces. Attempting to delay the processes of disor

Hydrophone spatial averaging corrections from 1 to 100 MHz
The purpose of this work was to develop and experimentally verify a set of robust and readily applicable spatial averaging models to account for ultrasonic hydrophone probe's finite aperture in acoustic field measurements in the frequency range 1 - 100 MHz. Electronically and mechanically focused acoustic sources of different geometries were considered. The geometrics included single element circular sources and rectangular shape tranducers that were representative of ultrasound imaging arrays u

Design of a View-Based DSS For Location Planning
This paper describes the design of a DSS for locating facility networks. The proposed DSS is based on the principle of dynamic data definitions. The declarative and procedural forms of knowledge involved are identified by a logical analysis of planning tasks. The DSS supports an iterating process of adjusting and evaluating plan options. A flexible and interactive problem solving environment is achieved by means of a user defined set of views that captures both forms of knowledge. Each view desc
