A Rare View of Polar Bears
Bob Simon reports on the latest "spy-cam" techniques used by wildlife filmmakers to show animals - in this case, polar bears - up-close. This 14 minute video was done by a unique hidden camera type of "spy" devise. Students will get to know more about these endangered animals which are still being allowed to be killed by the Canadian government despite their status. Students will learn about how the bears live. Also a good career video.

SP.255 Physics of Rock Climbing (MIT)
SP.255 is a lecture, discussion, and project based seminar about the physics of rock climbing. Participants are first exposed to the unsolved problems in the climbing community that could be answered by research and then asked to solve a small part of one of these problems. The seminar provides an introduction to engineering problems, an opportunity to practice communication skills, and a brief stab at doing some research. This seminar explicitly does not include climbing instruction nor is clim
Using Math Vocabulary to Describe
Math Lingo is an interactive tic-tac-toe game. Students read a question and find the picture that shows the correct answer. Students practice positional vocabulary, names of shapes, same and different. Correct answers receive a crowd cheer. Clip art shows young children, but the content of the game is good for ELL and Special Education students.
Virtual Maths, Brick Density - Water Displacement method
Presentation explaining how to calculate the density of a brick using water displacement method.
11.501 Introduction to Technology and Cities (MIT)
This seminar is an introduction to the usage and impacts of information and communication technologies (ICTs) on urban planning, the urban environment and communities. Students will explore how social relationships, our sense of community, the urban infrastructure, and planning practice have been affected by technological change. Literature reviews, guest speakers, and web surfing will provide examples and issues that are debated in class and homework exercises. We will examine metropolitan info
A Performance-Based Design Approach for Early Tall Building Form Development
This paper presents a methodological interactive design approach within which structure is integrated into tall building form development. The approach establishes a synergy between generative and analytical tools to allow for parallel interaction of the formal and structural design considerations during the conceptual design phase. An integration of the associative modeling system, Grasshopper, and the structural analysis tool, ETABS was established, and a bi-directional feedback link between t

Young Goodman Brown by Nathaniel Hawthorne
This is a male voice reading "Young Goodman Brown," showing one still image of a dark forest path on a moonlit night. Written by American writer Nathaniel Hawthorne in 1835, the story takes place in Puritan New England, a common setting for Hawthorne's works, and addresses one of his common themes: the conflict between good and evil in human nature and, in particular, the problem of public goodness and private wickedness. This literature is appropriate for high school students. More valu

Welcome to Assessing Your Skills one of the series of Futures workbooks, which help students choose and prepare for their careers. Like the other workbooks in the series you can dip in and out doing the exercises which are most relevant to you. You might want to include the exercises or the output in your personal development plan or e-portfolio. The aim of this workbook is to help you to clarify or identify your skills as a first step toward choosing work that really suits you. It can also he

Pictures are used to explain the expansion of humans into the Americas over 30,000 years ago. These first Native Americans were hunters and gatherers who began using agriculture, often in complex systems. Discusses the Pueblo, Iroquois, Aztecs and Incas. (Video is a set of slides with narration.)
A thin section of barium titanate is viewed between crossed-polars, Initially, the sample is below the transition temperature, and since the domains of the anisotropic tetragonal phase exhibit birefringence, it is brightly coloured when viewed between crossed-polars. When the sample reaches the transition temperature, the isotropic cubic phase forms, which appears black.
