11.220 Quantitative Reasoning & Statistical Methods for Planners I (MIT)
This course develops logical, empirically based arguments using statistical techniques and analytic methods. Elementary statistics, probability, and other types of quantitative reasoning useful for description, estimation, comparison, and explanation are covered. Emphasis is on the use and limitations of analytical techniques in planning practice.
Introduction to modelling for 1st year engineers
These resources cover an introduction to modelling for first year engineering undergraduate. The main focus is on electrical and mechanical systems, but there is also some discussion of dc motors, fluids and heat as well as an introduction to time series modelling. The main emphasis is on why modelling is important and how to go about doing this from first principles (e.g. Kirchhoff's laws, Newton's Laws, etc.). Given the focus is on new students arriving at University, there is no attempt to de
Mini project : digital video editing : presentation transcript
This is a Mini Project presentation about digital video editing. It is part of the 2009/10 BSc (Hons) in Multimedia Technology (course number 2ELE0075) from the University of Hertfordshire. All the mini projects are designed as level two modules of the undergraduate programmes. This project entails the creation, editing, and encoding of a video sequence with the intention of distribution over a particular digital broadcast platform (e.g. DVB-T or ipTV). This project provides an awareness of c
Combining Entrepreneurship and Environmental Science
Jesko von Windheim combines business savvy and scientific understanding in his new role at Duke as the director of the Nicholas School's Environmental Innovation and Entrepreneurship Center. A founder of multiple companies himself, von Windheim was already teaching entrepreneurship courses at Duke when he recently joined the Nicholas faculty to lead the new environmental entrepreneurship certificate program. Classes in the two-year program will train students to understand business models and
14.581 International Economics I (MIT)
This course provides a graduate-level introduction to the field of international trade. It examines the theory of international trade and foreign investment with applications in commercial policy. Topics include gains from trade, Ricardian models of technological differences, Heckscher-Ohlin models of factor endowment differences, intermediate input trade, wage inequality, imperfect competition, firm heterogeneity, multinational firms, international organization of production, dynamics, trade po
Basic Instructions on multiplying decimals.
Teaches basic steps for multiplying decimals. Solves problem (4.2 X 5.9) by removing the decimal and working as a whole number. Once solved, shows how to determine the decimal place in the answer by counting the digits behind the decimal in the original problem. Also shows how to round decimal into a whole number to see if answer is correct. Then shows how to solve a problem with no whole number (0.3 X 0.2). Once answered shows how to add zero to whole the whole number place and how to convert t
18.319 Geometric Combinatorics (MIT)
This course offers an introduction to discrete and computational geometry. Emphasis is placed on teaching methods in combinatorial geometry. Many results presented are recent, and include open (as yet unsolved) problems.

Global Change Teacher's Guide
Global change is a relatively new area of scientific study using research from many disciplines to determine how Earth systems change, and to assess the influence of human activity on these changes. The Global Change section of the Teaching Packet consists of an introduction and five activities. In teaching these activities, four themes are important: time, change, cycles, and Earth as home.
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
