Essential Science for Teachers: Physical Science
In-depth interviews with children that uncover their ideas about the topic at hand.,In this segment the interviewer is trying to find out if the student understands that even though you may mix two things together, the individual components still retain their properties.
SCORM and the Learning Grid
The Sharable Content Object Reference Model (SCORM) is a profile of several elearning specification to ensure the reusability and interoperability of elearning content in web based Learning Management Systems (LMSs). Learning grids - learning environments built on the technology of grid services - are a promising new approach to enhance quality of elearning by overcoming the page oriented structure of the web. This paper investigates how SCORM can be used in conjunction with learning grids. Aft
Metacognition in joint discussion: an analysis of the patterns of interaction and the metacognitive
The aim of this study was to examine metacognition in computer-supported collaborative problem solving. The subjects of the study were 13-year-old Finnish secondary school students (N=16). The Knowledge Forum learning environment was used to support student pairs’ problem-solving task involving polygons in a geometry course. The data consist of the student pairs’ posted computer notes (n=95). To examine metacognition in a social context in the networked discussions, the features and patterns

4 A thinking disposition and the process of development
Diagrams, mind-maps, tables, graphs, time lines, flow charts, sequence diagrams, decision trees: all can be used to organise thought. This unit will introduce you to a variety of thinking skills. Asking and answering questions is at the heart of high-quality thinking. Questions naturally arise from the desire to know and learn about things and may be the starting point for a journey of understanding.

Marathon for Mises On November 28, I will attempt to run the Seattle Marathon. It's my first marathon, and I expect it will be one of the most difficult physical and mental challenges that I attempt in my life. For many, the mental challenge is as great as the physical. The months of training, the hundreds of miles run in preparation, and then the final hurdle of running 26 miles and 385 yards sometimes seem insuperable. In mom

Formulas for functions of one variable
This is a chart of functions with one variable and the equations for their standard deviation. It is from the Engineering Statistics handbook whose goal is to help scientists and engineers incorporate statistical methods in their work as efficiently as possible. A link to tools and aids for using the handbook is provided.
Custom sneakers for Goldy Gopher
University of Minnesota student Chris Hui started an unusual business when he was only a teenager - custom sneaker painting. Now a junior in the Carlson School of Management, his custom sneaker company C2 Customs has served a wide range of clients - even some famous musicians and athletes. From Lupe Fiasco to LeBron James and now Goldy Gopher, Chris creates a custom pair of shoes that speaks to the wearer and their look.
Apple Computers through the ages
A video of apple computer throughout time starting with the Apple Lisa and ending with the Macbook Air. It begins with the Apple Logo which was used from 1976 to 1998. You see a picture of Lisa which was introduced in 1983. Statistics are given about the computers and what they would cost in modern day prices. (2:35)
TALAT Lecture 2402: Design Recommendations for fatigue loaded structures
This lecture presents calculation of design stresses for variable stress ratios in practice, explanation on the background of design recommendations; it demonstrates the concept of partial safety factors and supply appropriate background information for aluminium; it enables the designer to evaluate service behavior of structural details on a more sophisticated level applying the same principles as in current design recommendations; it provides understanding of the fatigue design procedure accor

Applying object-oriented analysis to the integration of design and construction
This paper implements an Object Oriented Analysis technique to model information related to design and construction. In a previous study, an approach to integrate design and construction processes based upon information analysis and modelling has been proposed. By breaking down the project's vast information into groups of related information, construction related problems have been identified and then traced back too their relevant design processes. This paper models this process using a relati
Levels of measurement
Aimed at statistics beginners, this learning object describes, and gives examples of, the four levels of measurement of data: nominal, ordinal, interval and ratio.
2.017J Design of Electromechanical Robotic Systems (MIT)
This course covers the design, construction, and testing of field robotic systems, through team projects with each student responsible for a specific subsystem. Projects focus on electronics, instrumentation, and machine elements. Design for operation in uncertain conditions is a focus point, with ocean waves and marine structures as a central theme. Topics include basic statistics, linear systems, Fourier transforms, random processes, spectra, ethics in engineering practice, and extreme events
