USGS Materials Maps
Visitors can learn about the relatively new field of imaging spectroscopy, which allows specific absorption features, caused by chemical bonds in materials, to be mapped spatially. Topics include an introduction to the procedure, environmental applications, vegetation and biota mapping, lithologic, and mineral mapping. A set of links provides access to reports, accompanied by spectroscopic images, on the use of this new tool in chosen locations.
Elementary Calculus: An Infinitesimal Approach (CA Textbook)
This is a calculus textbook at the college Freshman level based on Abraham Robinson's infinitesimals, which date from 1960. Robinson's modern infinitesimal approach puts the intuitive ideas of the founders of the calculus on a mathematically sound footing, and is easier for beginners to understand than the more common approach via limits. This digital textbook was reviewed for its alignment with California content standards.
This popular maths talk gives an introduction to various different kinds of infinity, both countable and uncountable. These concepts are illustrated in a somewhat informal way using the notion of Hilbert's infinite hotel. In this talk, the hotel manager tries to fit various infinite collections of guests into the hotel. The students should learn that many apparently different types of infinity are really the same size. However, there are genuinely more" real numbers than there are positive integ
The Protocols of the Elders of Zion
Warrant for Genocide the Protocols of the Elders of Zion is Professor Milton Shain topic for UCT Gordon Institute for Performing and Creative Arts GIPCA Great Texts Big Questions lecture on 22 April. The Protocols of the Elders of Zion has been described as the world biggest literary forgery and yet despite intense research into this infamous text some still believe it is evidence of a Jewish plot for world domination. First published in Russian in 1903 The Protocols has appeared in many version
AP Statistics Curriculum 2007
This is an Internet-based E-Book for advanced-placement (AP) statistics educational curriculum. The E-Book is initially developed by the UCLA Statistics Online Computational Resource (SOCR), however, all statistics instructors, researchers and educators are encouraged to contribute to this effort and improve the content of these learning materials.
Introduction to the Talkdesign.org Web Site
This frequently-asked-question page is the anti-intelligent design introduction to a forum on Intelligent Design . It explains the goals of the Talk Design.org website and clearly defines Intelligent Design. It also defines a variety of terms related to Intelligent Design, like "irreducible complexity".
Barrier Scattering model
The EJS Barrier Scattering model shows a quantum mechanical experiment in which an incident wave (particle) traveling from the left is transmitted and reflected from a potential step at x=0. Although the analytic solution to this standard problem is well known, its visualization shows how the incident and reflected waves form an interference pattern and how the incident wave penetrates the classically forbidden region when its energy is less than the barrier height height V0

Westward Expansion: The Effect
An excellent presentation about why settlers were moving westward and the problems they faced. Contains a printed version of the script. Students should have a map to help them follow the movement. Lots of statistics could be written down for discussion later. Major agricutlure inventions also explained.

Energy transfers and transformations: sparking student interest
This publication about energy transfers and energy transformations features hand-selected online resources for middle school science teachers. An introduction notes the ubiquitous nature of energy movements and conversions.
TALAT Lecture 2102.01: A Floodlight for an Offshore Oil Platform, Special Study: Extruding Aluminium
This lecture offers an example of product development. It imparts knowledge about the design possibilities inherent in aluminium sections and the choice of alloy. It gives insight into how to develop a product using the general specifications and the interaction between form, material and processing chain; the importance of being thoroughly familiar with the different design materials, their processing possibilities and properties. The lecture is recommended for those situations, where a brief,
Building a Thermometer
The purpose of this activity is to build an instrument that can be used to measure water temperature. Students construct a soda-bottle thermometer, which is similar to the thermometer used by GLOBE schools. Both are based on the principle that most substances expand and contract as their temperature changes. This experiment also demonstrates the principle of heat transfer. The intended outcome is that students will understand why and how a standard thermometer works.
