Oricalco - thermal shape memory fabric
The first orthogonal weaving example of Nitinol. The 'Thermal Shape Memory Alloy' is characterized by its extraordinary ability to recover any shape, pre-programmed, upon heating. Until today this light weight alloy with about 50% Titanium inside has been used in advanced sectors like space and recently in medical applications. Moreover this fabric is the first for which the shape memory alloy, named Nitinol, was weaved orthogonally that is to say that Oricalco is the first fabric with shape mem
Algebraic thinking: a basic skill
The resources highlighted here aim to reflect students' growing mathematical capacity over the span of the middle school years. The activities and lessons, intended as supplementary materials, range from introduction to the fundamentals of algebra to work on linear functions. Uniformly, they take into consideration the preference of the middle school student for concrete models, visual representations, and interactive tasks.

Coordination Exam: Normal Exam: Tandem Gait
The patient is asked to walk heel-to-toe. Note steadiness. Tandem gait requires the patient to narrow the station and maintain balance over a 4-5 inch width. Patients with midline ataxias have difficulty with tandem gait. The first principle of neurologic diagnosis is regional or anatomical localization. In order to become skillful the student must understand how structure relates to function of the nervous system. The neurologic examination permits "dissection" of the nervous system and localiz
