Visual aid for mapping your position within a learning cycle.
Elements that make up the human body
Introducing the periodic table of elements, and identifying the major elements involved in the human body and their roles.
Equations - Calculations with numbers and symbols
A learning object that concentrates on your ability to do calculations in the right order.
Robotics with the XBC Controller
This course offers a brief history of robotics, and a definition of robot and robotics. The course includes an introduction to IC and the XBC, downloading firmware, Updating the bitstream, and IC Environment and simulator. It concludes with an activity building a Demo-Bot.
Using Pseudoscience as an Aid to Teaching General and Analytical Chemistry
This site developed by Michael Epstein, Margaret Bullard, Brad Buehler, and Robin Kloster, Department of Science, Mount Saint Mary\'s College contains case studies and experiments, used at this college in Maryland, that could be readily incorporated into an analytical chemistry course. Their inclusion of pseudoscientific topics include (a) lecture, discussion, and examinations; (b) demonstrations; (c) laboratory experiments; and (d) student attendance at a conference where controversial research

Introduction to Chemical Equilibria
An interactive set of applet-based demonstrations (many modeled as experimental measurements) that illustrate the concepts and calculations of chemical equilibria. The site demonstrates equilibrium processes in a reaction vessel by plotting the concentration of reactants and products over time. The site would be a good supplement for a class in general chemistry or quantitative analysis.
The Web: Design for Active Learning
This page focuses on interactivity as it applies to a cohesive design including, high interface, content, and instructional design. This page is usable in gathering strategies for applying active learning in a college environment, although none are specifically related to analytical chemistry. Unfortunately, several of the links on the page are broken, but there are a number of useful ones.
Drug company GlaxoSmithKline offers this online genetics tutorial designed for kids. The tutorial presents lessons on DNA, genes, heredity, genetic susceptibility to disease, and the role of genetic markers in predetermining risk of disease and medicinal response. Each subject page includes a description of the topic, plus loads of interactive educational games and activities. The educational games are especially well done, although the cartoon-style presentation, which is intended for younger s
Introduction to Mass Spectrometry
This site contains an on-line text on mass spectrometry at the intermediate level. The text gives good general coverage of mass spectrometry instrumentation and applications in very readable format. It contains nice diagrams that provide a visualization of the ionization and mass selection processes. It also contains an overview of applications of mass spectrometry near the end that is different than most sites related to MS. It is especially appropriate for intermediate students.
Integrated Spectral Database System for Organic Compounds
Searchable database of infrared, NMR, and mass spectra of organic compounds.
Middle School Portal: Math and Science Pathways (MSP2)
This document is an introduction to energy. The reading will define energy and discuss topics such as (1) Forms of energy, (2) Kinetic energy (electrical, radiant, thermal, motion, and sound), (3) Potential energy (Chemical, Stored Mechanical, Nuclear, and Gravitational), (4) Conservation of energy, (5) Energy efficiency, and (6) Sources of Energy (renewable and nonrenewable). The document also depicts illustrations of energy transformations and U.S. energy consumption by source. This resource i

computer simulation of the demolition of a structure
This is created by VFIFE (V-5), a new finite element technique capable of calculation motion and stresses of a structural system. It is developed by Center for Bridge Engineering Research, National Central University, Taiwan.
computer simulation of structural collapse
This is created by VFIFE (V-5, vector form intrinsic finite element) developed recently at National Central University, Taiwan. V-5 is capable of calculating position changes and body deformation simultaneously. It is based on the mechanics concept of Motion Analysis.
Elementary Abstract Algebra
This book is intended for a one semester introduction to abstract algebra. Available in postscript, pdf, and latex formats.
Gran Quivira: A Blending of Cultures in a Pueblo Indian Village
can help students understand daily life and how it changed for the Pueblo Indians of Gran Quivira, the largest of the three Salinas pueblos located in central New Mexico.
Iron Hill School: An African-American One-Room School
is a curriculum-oriented guide focusing on a school constructed in 1923 in a rural area of northern Delaware, one of more than 80 schools for African-American children built between 1919 and 1928 as part of philanthropist Pierre Samuel du Pont's Delaware experiment. The site shows photos, maps, and diagrams about the school itself and suggests student activities ranging from philanthropy to school architecture.
