CMS.405 Media and Methods: Seeing and Expression (MIT)
This class examines frameworks for making and sharing visual artifacts using a trans-cultural, trans-historical, constructionist approach. It explores the relationship between perceived reality and the narrative imagination, how an author's choice of medium and method of construction constrains the work, how desire is integrated into the structure of a work, and how the cultural/economic opportunity for exhibition/distribution affects the realization of a work. Students submit three papers and t
Zn, cold rolled - mechanical twins
This sample was cold rolled. Zinc has a hexagonal structure so it contains only two independent slip systems. However, for slip to occur, five slip systems are required so zinc does not undergo general plasticity. Instead it forms mechanical twins as an alternative to dislocation motion to accommodate the deformation.
Bi 60, Cd 40 (wt%), eutectic alloy
This sample has the eutectic composition so all the liquid solidifies at the eutectic temperature to form a lamellar eutectic structure. The two phases grow co-operatively from the melt.
Virtual Maths - Shapes, Space and Measure, Theodolite Survey simulation
Simulation of using a thodolite to calculate the height of a building.
11 - Purgatory V, VI, IX, X
This lecture covers Purgatorio 5, 6, 9 and 10. The purgatorial theme of freedom introduced in the previous lecture is revisted in the context of canto 5, where Buonconte da Montefeltro’s appearance among the last minute penitents is read as a critique of the genealogical bonds of natural necessity. The poet passes from natural to civic ancestry in Purgatorio 6, where the mutual affection of Virgil and Sordello, a former citizen of the classical poet’s native Mantua, sparks an invective aga

Cancer Biology Tutorial (Full version)
The content package (full version) is based on an introductory course on Cancer biology at Bath. It includes a)interactive Flash animations designed to develop a strong conceptual understanding of the complex cellular processes of DNA replication, DNA damage and DNA repair pathways in cancer. It includes novel animation material incorporating current research. It also includes a text version of the animation materials. b) powerpoint slides on oncogenesis, oncogenic viruses,apoptosis, angiogenesi
How to write reports
This resource includes content and activities about writing reports. It presents information and examples related to the structure, layout and language used in report writing.
Work effectively in the organisation
Defines work repated competencies and how an employee should monitor their competencies and have them recognised. Also the importance of knowing the organisation's structure, culture, written and unwritten rules and being able to manage time effictively and set goals.
Organise and prepare food
This unit covers the skills and knowledge to organise and present food to customers. Activity 1 teaches students to organise themselves so that they learn to work both safely and hygienically. They will learn how to work cleanly and safely, how to select kitchen tools, how to select and prepare vegetables and how to use basic cutting techniques. In Activity 2 students will learn about reading and interpreting recipes. They will learn about selecting and preparing fruit, b
The E-Commerce Business Plan
The E-Commerce Business Plan. The online material for this learning unit aims to provide learners with the tools and skills to prepare a comprehensive e-commerce business plan. Learners will explore the purpose and process of writing a business plan. They will determine an e-commerce business plan structure and prepare each section of the plan. Learners will use a range of practical activities to prepare their plans. Learners are expected to either have their own business, or business concept, o
Develop a Business Plan for the Transport Industry: Elements of a Business Plan
Elements of a business plan. This module examines the structure and information required to create a business plan for a transport and distribution business. This forms section 2 of 3 from the Develop a Business Plan for the Transport Industry module.
Advertising and Promotional Management
This unit examines: the role, nature and scope of promotion; the structure of the advertising and promotion industry; promotional options available; and producing advertising and promotional materials.
This learning object addresses the competency required to monitor the environment as part of a tailings dam management process. You will learn about the function of tailings dams, and how to inspect and maintain the dams and associated ponds. Topics include legislation, environmental impact assessments, site plans, emergency procedures and reporting.
Fe, C 0.2 (wt%), explosively deformed - mechanical twins
This sample was explosively deformed so that there was insufficient time for dislocation motion to occur. Hence, mechanical twins are produced despite the b.c.c. structure of mild steel.
3.091 Introduction to Solid State Chemistry (MIT)
This course explores the basic principles of chemistry and their application to engineering systems. It deals with the relationship between electronic structure, chemical bonding, and atomic order. It also investigates the characterization of atomic arrangements in crystalline and amorphous solids: metals, ceramics, semiconductors, and polymers (including proteins). Topics covered include organic chemistry, solution chemistry, acid-base equilibria, electrochemistry, biochemistry, chemi
