International Classification of Function, Disability and Health
This package was originally designed for undergraduates in Medicine at the University of Nottingham. It will also be useful to students in nursing, allied health professions and pharmacy. Practitioners in these fields, who are new to the ICF, will also find it a useful introduction. It describes the International Classification of Functioning, Disability and Health (ICF), a classification system published by the World Health Organisation to describe health status. This system is widely used in

The Vitamin Village is a web-based eLearning package developed between 2001 and 2008 to incorporate vitamins A, C, D, E and K, as well as a basic introduction to antioxidants. It is mainly used in first year teaching of vitamins, but also in the 2nd and 3rd years of the 3 year BSc (Hons) Nutrition and 4 year MNutr Nutrition degrees taught within the School of Biosciences.
Alisa LaGamma and Philippe de Montebello discuss the original form and function of this arresting sculpture from Central Africa. Recorded on the occasion of "The Philippe de Montebello Years: Curators Celebrate Three Decades of Acquisitions", on view from October 24, 2008–February 1, 2009.
This lesson explains how to find the principle square root of a monomial. Can be used as remedial or introduction lesson.
Joseph Kosuth established himself as one of the most influential artists of the late 1960s with text-based works that emphasize the central role that language can play in visual works of art. Join the artist for a discussion of his work, including seven pieces from the Hirshhorn’s collection, five of which are on view in The Panza Collection this fall.
Join us for an evening with filmmaker Jonas Mekas, a central figure in the avant-garde art and cinema community in New York that began in the 1960s. This marks Mekas's return to the Hirshhorn-he was the first guest speaker at the film program in 1976.

The article also offers other statistics regarding typical American's beliefs, internet ...
This course is the largest of the introductory programming courses and is one of the largest courses at Stanford. Topics focus on the introduction to the engineering of computer applications emphasizing modern software engineering principles: object-oriented design, decomposition, encapsulation, abstraction, and testing. Programming Methodology teaches the widely-used Java programming language along with good software engineering principles. Emphasis is on good programming style and the built-in
This course provides a broad introduction to machine learning and statistical pattern recognition. Topics include: supervised learning (generative/discriminative learning, parametric/non-parametric learning, neural networks, support vector machines); unsupervised learning (clustering, dimensionality reduction, kernel methods); learning theory (bias/variance tradeoffs; VC theory; large margins); reinforcement learning and adaptive control. The course will also discuss recent applications of machi
Introduction to applied linear algebra and linear dynamical systems, with applications to circuits, signal processing, communications, and control systems. Topics include: Least-squares aproximations of over-determined equations and least-norm solutions of underdetermined equations. Symmetric matrices, matrix norm and singular value decomposition. Eigenvalues, left and right eigenvectors, and dynamical interpretation. Matrix exponential, stability, and asymptotic behavior. Multi-input multi-outp
Concentrates on recognizing and solving convex optimization problems that arise in engineering. Convex sets, functions, and optimization problems. Basics of convex analysis. Least-squares, linear and quadratic programs, semidefinite programming, minimax, extremal volume, and other problems. Optimality conditions, duality theory, theorems of alternative, and applications. Interiorpoint methods. Applications to signal processing, control, digital and analog circuit design, computational geometry,
"This course is designed as an introduction to the interdisciplinary field of Women's and Gender Studies, an academic area of study focused on the ways that sex and gender manifest themselves in social, cultural, and political contexts. The primary goal of this course is to familiarize students with key issues, questions and debates in Women's Studies scholarship, both historical and contemporary. This semester you will become acquainted with many of the critical questions and concepts feminist
" This course examines representations of race, class, gender, and sexual identity in the media. We will be considering issues of authorship, spectatorship, (audience) and the ways in which various media content (film, television, print journalism, advertising) enables, facilitates, and challenges these social constructions in society. In addition, we will examine how gender and race affects the production of media, and discuss the impact of new media and digital media and how it has transformed
On 18th October 2006, episode one of a new language-learning podcast called Coffee Break Spanish was released to the world. This show was a bit different from the other Spanish learning shows out there: it was a gradual introduction to basic Spanish presented by teacher Mark, teaching student Kara. At this stage no-one really knew [...]
A short video that explains a bit of the history of fencing and shows some combat. It also goes into more detail about the types of weapons and how the winner is chosen. Of some value where fencing is taught as an introduction. Run time 3:27
This forth part of the interview to George Gallup refers to the different activities religions groups participate in and to some statistics. He refers to other countries as well and to the ways in which religious group study, for example, the Gospels.
