2 Reasons for choosing to study the arts
This unit is an introduction to studying the arts and humanities. It takes you through a series of exercises designed to develop your approach to study and learning at a distance and improve your confidence as an independent learner.
WildLinAlg12: Generalized dilations and eigenvectors
This video introduces the important idea of changing coordinates in Linear Algebra. A linear transformation can be described using many different matrices, depending on the underlying coordinate system, or ordered basis, which is used to describe the space. The simplest case is when the linear transformation is in diagonal form. Finding such a diagonal form requires finding the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of a matrix, which we introduce in this video. We also discuss change of basis matrices.
WildLinAlg10: Equations of lines and planes in 3D
This video shows how we work with lines in the plane and planes in 3D space in Linear Algebra. A line in 2D is represented by a linear equation in x and y, a plane in 3D by a linear equation in x,y and z. Both can also be described in parametric form. It is important to be able to change from a Cartesian to a parametric form. The space of all lines in the plane has a curious connection with the Mobius band. Lines in 3D are somewhat trickier to describe since they require two linear equations.

This extract is concerned primarily with the chemistry that underpins the operation of the three-way catalytic converter that is placed in the exhaust systems of motor vehicles in order to reduce the emissions of primary pollutants: carbon monoxide, oxides of nitrogen and volatile organic compounds, including hydrocarbons. Discussion of the various effects of these pollutants and the consequent introduction and refinement of ‘automotive emission regulations’ has not been included, nor is the
Windows XP is a computer operating system and graphical user interface GUI which enables you to work with a wide variety of programs on your computer often simultaneously. Windows XP is itself a special computer program that communicates your instructions to the actual computer hardware and displays the results. This manual covers: Using the mouse; Working with the desktop; Using windows; Working with applications; File handling.
A short introduction to wikis focused a group of people that plan a camping trip using a wiki.
Each time the United States expanded its territory, a wave of settlers and the development of new routes for trade and migration soon followed. This three minute video goes over some of the trails, personalities, and geography of this expansion. A good introduction, but students need to have map to follow the action.
Excerpts of John F. Kennedy's speech at the Boston Garden on November 7, 1960, the eve of the 1960 presidential election.
With staggering statistics, John Fernandez persuades his audience that rapidly expanding urban centers are consuming too much of the world’s resources, setting the stage for global crisis. Yet Fernandez counters his own bleak picture with some bright examples of design that could help humans live within thei
Play a game and find out about a Nobel Prize awarded discovery or work! In this game you have to blood type each patient and give them a blood transfusion. Are you able to do that? If not, maybe you should read the introduction to blood typing before you start, otherwise you will put the patients' lives in danger!

A surface is non-orientable if there is no consistent notion of right handed versus left handed on it. The simplest example is the Mobius band, a twisted strip with one side, and one edge. An important deformation gives what we call a crosscap. This is the sixth lecture in this beginner's course on Algebraic Topology, given by Assoc Prof N J Wildberger of the School of Mathematics and Statistics at UNSW.
Modern science is increasingly faced with problems of ever greater complexity, straddling across the traditional disciplinary boundaries between physics, chemistry, material science and biology. Computational science is responding to this challenge with a steadfast development of innovative modeling techniques, designed in such a way as to offer an optimal handling of the information transfer procedures connecting the different scales/levels involved in the quantitative description of the aforem
This lesson provides an introduction to the problems associated with ground-level ozone ('smog'). It reinforces the idea that ozone at ground level is harmful while that in the upper atmosphere has a beneficial effect.
Editor's note: Unfortunately the first few minutes of the introduction are missing from the podcast. Saad Hariri is President of the Council of Ministers of the Lebanese Republic, a position he has held since November 2009. He is the leader of the Future Movement, which currently holds the majority in Lebanon's parliament. He entered the political domain in 2005 following the assassination of his father, former Prime Minister Rafic Hariri. Prior to politics, he held several high level roles in b
