Rheodyne - Application Support
Application notes, technical information, and on-line trouble-shooting guide pertinent for Rheodyne products (high-pressure valves).
This classroom activity is part of the Smithsonian's Giant Squid Curriculum. It uses flashlights to teach students about luminescence, counterillumination, and photophores. In the scope of this activity, students will identify luminescence and brainstorm possible reasons for its biological purpose and function. The activity includes a detailed procedure accompanied with questions teachers can ask in order to promote inquiry and classroom discussion. A link directs teachers to background content
Fourier Sine Series
The Fourier sine series model displays the sine series expansion coefficients of an arbitrary function on the interval [0, 2?].
Radioactive Decay Events Model
The EJS Radioactive Decay Events Model simulates the decay of a radioactive sample using discrete random events. It displays the number of events (radioactive decays) as a function of time in a given time interval. You can change the initial number of nuclei, the decay constant and the time interval for the event distribution.
The Introduction to Cardiovascular Pathophysiology course provides the students with two main objectives. It delineates the material students are expected to understand and have recalled from the basic cardiac physiology lectures and it expands on the discussion of the hemodynamic perturbations of cardiac function.
Histology: Study of Cells, Tissues and Organs
This course presents the microscopic structure of cells, tissues, and organs, with emphasis on the correlation of structure and function. Vignettes of clinical and pathologic significance are also presented.
Math Literature Connections: Two of Everything
Two of Everything by Lily Toy Hong recounts a Chinese folk tale. The farmer finds a magic pot which doubles everything that is put into it. This humorous story is a great introduction to function machines and input/output tables as teachers make the transition to the "doubling pot" and recording information in an input/output table.
eCommunities: Analysis and Design of Online Interaction Environments, Winter 2009
Gives students a background in theory and practice surrounding online interaction environments. For the purpose of this course, a community is defined as a group of people who sustain interaction over time. The group may be held together by a common identity, a collective purpose, or merely by the individual utility gained from the interactions. An online interaction environment is an electronic forum, accessed through computers or other electronic devices, in which community members can conduct
Immunology, Winter 2008
General Learning Objectives for Immunology 1. To understand the structural and genetic basis of diversity and specificity of immunoglobulins and T cell receptors. 2. To understand the utility of antibodies in many clinical tests for proteins, hormones, etc. 3. To understand the events that hallmark the antigen-independent and antigen-dependent phases of B cell differentiation. 4. To understand the diversity of MHC molecules, and how that diversity differs from immunoglobulin and T cell rece
Cardiovascular / Respiratory, Fall 2007
For each of the subtopics of the sequence a list of comprehensive behavioral goals and cognitive objectives will explicitly define what a student should know and be able to do by the end of the sequence. These objectives provide a focus for "active" studying. It is important to note that mastery of the "basic facts" concerning structure and function, as defined in these lists of cognitive objectives, is an essential, but only the first step, in life long learning. You must also be able to use th
Prion Problem Space
Prions are relatively small proteins that display dramatically alternate conformations for similar primary structures. Abnormal conformations appear to cause fatal neurological diseases in a wide variety of mammals. Researchers are discovering the mechanisms behind these conformational changes, including differences that may lead to species barriers (or lack thereof) among exposed animals. How do these conformations differ? How do small sequence differences affect susceptibility to conformationa
Peer 2 Peer University
The Peer 2 Peer University (P2PU) is an online community of open study groups for short university-level courses. Think of it as online book clubs for open educational resources. The P2PU helps you navigate the wealth of open education materials that are out there, creates small groups of motivated learners, and supports the design and facilitation of courses. Students and tutors get recognition for their work, and we are building pathways to formal credit as well. Currently P2PU is in a pilot
Information Technology for Management
This book is designed for business students with no particular background in information systems. Its primary goal is to help prepare students to assume an active and significant role in the management, design, and use of information technology. This edition stresses the changes enabled by IT. Each chapter begins with a short Focus on Change because technology is creating dramatic changes in the way individuals, work groups, organizations, and even governments function.
Analyze Your Audience - Part 1
The First A in the ADVANCE Formula stands for "Analyze the Assignment" and "Analyze your Audience." When you understand the psychology of the essay marker, your audience, you will have a new appreciation of what their job is and how that impacts your task of writing that paper. Bryan Rempel holds a Masters Degree in Education and is a Master Teacher for Dr. J.B. Webster's Blended Structure and Style program of teaching writing, as well as an Accomplished Instructor for the Institute for Excellen
Rare advert switch for London icon
The huge advertising display at Piccadilly Circus in central London will soon get a new look, as Japanese electronics brand Sanyo withdraws after 33 years.
While the future of Auburn's 130-year-old Toomer's Oaks is uncertain, Auburn has had a plan since 2001 to grow potential replacements and to supply alumni and fans with their own Toomer's Oaks seedlings.
Campus Update With President Barker - Episode 1
Introducing the first episode of Campus Update with President Barker. In this unique video series, Clemson students get the opportunity to talk with President Barker about some of the many great things going on at Clemson. The goal of these periodic updates is to give all members of the Clemson Family a chance to stay connected with campus life. We hope you enjoy the first episode and will be on the lookout for future updates.
Essential Science for Teachers: Earth and Space Science. Session 5. When Continents Collide
How is it possible that marine fossils are found on Mount Everest, the world's highest continental mountain? In this session, participants learn what happens when continents collide and how this process shapes the surface of the Earth.,Students and scientists explore the questions: Can layers of rock be folded? What is metamorphic rock?
