Bighorn sheep running away in Lower Snake River District of Idaho
Many times, an animal's only defense is speed and running away from predators.
Bee inside flower retrieving nectar
The bee obtains nectar from the flower to make into honey. During this process, the bee is covered in pollen that will be transferred to other flowers for reproduction. Both the bee and the flower benefit from this process.
Conflict resolution: Introduction to cooperative problem solving
An introduction to the concept of and issues involved in Cooperative Problem Solving.
Review II: Statistics Fall 2007
This course covers population and variables; Standard measures of location, spread and association; Normal approximation; Regression. Probability and sampling: Binomial distribution. Interval estimation; Some standard significance tests.
Household Energy Conservation and Efficiency
Students complete three different activities to evaluate the energy consumption in a household and explore potential ways to reduce that consumption. The focus is on conservation and energy efficient electrical devices and appliances. The lesson reinforces the relationship between power and energy and associated measurements and calculations required to evaluate energy consumption. The lesson provides the students with more concrete information for completing their culminating unit assignment.
Students learn about the types of possible loads, how to calculate ultimate load combinations, and investigate the different sizes for the beams (girders) and columns (piers) of simple bridge design. Students learn the steps that engineers use to design bridges: understanding the problem, determining the potential bridge loads, calculating the highest possible load, and calculating the amount of material needed to resist the loads.
You're a Pushover!
The purpose of this activity is to demonstrate Newton's 3rd Law of Motion, which is the physical law that governs thrust in aircraft. The students will do several activities that show that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

2.7.1 Drawing a multiple-cause diagram
The power of graphics should not the underestimated. They can express information clearly and simply. This unit will help you to assess which style of graphic to use in different situations.
Students learn a simple technique for quantifying the amount of photosynthesis that occurs in a given period of time, using a common water plant (Elodea). They can use this technique to compare the amounts of photosynthesis that occur under conditions of low and high light levels. Before they begin the experiment, however, students must come up with a well-worded hypothesis to be tested. After running the experiment, students pool their data to get a large sample size, determine the measures of
MOLA: Seasonal Snow Variations on Mars: Slow Flyover of the Martian North Pole: False Color
This is a visualization of the topography near the Martian north pole as measured with the MOLA instrument. This particular animation shows a slow zoom to the surface of the pole, a flyover of the polar cap and a slow zoom out. The surface color is based on the elevation of the topography.

Chris Higson, Associate Professor of Accounting discusses how despite their revenues tumbling and prices falling, Apple survived the recession of the early 1990s because they were a fat organisation with a strong balance sheet
The amount of snow covering the land has both short and long term effects on the environment. From season to season, snow coverage and depth affect soil moisture and water availability, which directly influence agriculture, wildfire occurrences, and drought. In the long term, the part of the Earths surface covered by snow reflects up to 80 or 90 percent of the incoming solar radiation as opposed to the 10 or 20 percent that uncovered land reflects, and this has important consequences for the Ear
Op het einde van deze les kun je: De raadgevingen van een dokter doorvertellen aan een vriend/in die ook ziek is.
Cursisten leren provocerend taalgebruik te herkennen als een manier om een gesprekspartner te overreden en het zelf te hanteren in een specifieke context
De hoofdgedachten in drie teksten over alternatieve levensstijlen met elkaar vergelijken.
This module is based on a book produced by the Ecuadorian Association of Medical Faculties. Materials are reproduced with permisson. These are practice tests intended for Ecuadorian postgraduate medical training. The module will cover topics like: anatomy, anesthesiology, biochemestry, general surgery, embryology, epidemiology, pharmacology, physiology, genetics, gynecology & obstetrics, histology, internal medicine, medical statistics, microbiology, parasitology, pathology, pediatrics, psychiat
This 1:48 video shows how one Chinese town still makes paper the traditional way. The students will learn how the bamboo is harvested, turned into pulp, and made into paper.
