5.4 Application: deaf-blind education Vygotsky's ideas have been applied to the remediation of the developmental barriers encountered by a wide variety of children, most notably deaf-blind children, and those with learning difficulties. As mentioned previously, for Vygotsky, cognition is actively developed by language. Therefore the social constructivist approach sets out to develop the language abilities of these children (often through using sign language or alternative communication systems) and through this they are enabled t

15.082J Network Optimization (MIT)
15.082J/6.855J/ESD.78J is a graduate subject in the theory and practice of network flows and its extensions. Network flow problems form a subclass of linear programming problems with applications to transportation, logistics, manufacturing, computer science, project management, and finance, as well as a number of other domains. This subject will survey some of the applications of network flows and focus on key special cases of network flow problems including the following: the shortest path prob
South Africa's FinMin talks future
South Africa's Finance Minister Pravin Gordhan tells Reuters that Africa is "the continent of the future" when it comes to investment for 2011 with more potential than many emerging markets.
The Doha Round is Alive; and more important than ever
Since 2008 it has looked to many as if the Doha Round trade negotiations were dead, or at best comatose. At the G20 Summit last November, world leaders gave it a shot in the arm, and there are now significant signs of life in Geneva. If concluded, it would provide an insurance policy against future protectionism and economic benefits estimated at over $360 billion. The challenge is to realise the window of opportunity in 2011 in order to seal the deal. On the last day of his 6 month assignment
GAMBIT Game Lab @ GDC 2011 Day Four
Day Four @ GDC begins with a fascinating postmortem by Eric Chahi (Ubisoft), creator of the visionary game, "Another World" which is celebrating it's 20th anniversary. Chuck Hoover (Schell Games) lectures on the faults of human thought. GAMBIT friends, Darius Kazemi and Karl Parakenings play a round of the new IGDA created META GAME. And the sightly deranged but lovabe creator of "Deadly Premonition", Hidetaka "Swery" Suehiro talks about how his coffee is the guiding force in his creativity.
What our medical past can tell us about our genomic future
Watch video from the March 2 Thinking Out of the Lunchbox event. Holly Tucker, associate professor, Center for Medicine, Health & Society and associate professor, French & Italian, spoke on ”What Our Medical Past Can Tell Us About Our Genomic Future.” Every era, particularly one deep in “Scientific Revolution” as we now find ourselves, necessarily has tokeep reading »
6.2 Some general features of communitarianism and cosmopolitanism There are two very different and sharply contrasting views about how the international arena can be theorised, should be organised and can be described. One side sees the international sphere as made up of a plurality of interacting cultures with incommensurable values, while the other side deploys general concepts of rights and applies these to humanity as a whole. These two constructions rest upon very different views of what human beings are, and how they do and should interact together.

21A.216J Dilemmas in Bio-Medical Ethics: Playing God or Doing Good? (MIT)
This course is an introduction to the cross-cultural study of bio-medical ethics. It examines moral foundations of the science and practice of western bio-medicine through case studies of abortion, contraception, cloning, organ transplantation, and other issues. It also evaluates challenges that new medical technologies pose to the practice and availability of medical services around the globe, and to cross-cultural ideas of kinship and personhood. It discusses critiques of the bio-medical tradi
Solving Radical Equations
Radical equations are equations that have square root terms. This video describes how to solve radical equations by isolating the radical expression on one side of the equation and then squaring both sides. If there are two or more terms on the opposite side of the equation, remember to draw parenthesis around that expression before squaring. (00:59)

Parallel Lines Theorem
This video explains if two lines are intersected by a transversal, then alternate interior angles, alternate exterior angles, and corresponding angles are congruent. The converse of the theorem is true as well. If two corresponding angles are congruent, then the two lines cut by the transversal must be parallel. Similarly, if two alternate interior or alternate exterior angles are congruent, the lines are parallel. (1:16)
This video explains how right trianges are congruent if two legs cnd the two hypotenuses are congruent. This is known as the hypotenuse leg theorem. Note that this is the SSA shortcut which does not apply to non-right triangles. Applying the Pythagorean Theorem shows that only one value is possible for the other leg. Therefore, the two triangles are also congruent by the SAS or SSS congruence shortcut. (1:15)
Polynomial Vocabulary - Definition of a Polynomial
Before adding and subtracting polynomials or multiplying polynomials, it is important to know the definition of a polynomial and polynomial vocabulary. This video describes important polynomial definitions and terms including monomial, the degree of a monomial, polynomial degree and standard form. (7:15)
