Transforming Grammars for Goal Driven Style Innovation
Shape grammar transformations have been used for developing new design styles by the systematic modification of grammars that encode existing styles. We make use of a style description scheme to aid grammar transformations for goal driven style change. A rule base was authored for the design of Greek temple facades, and was augmented with a style description scheme. These were tested at a student workshop wherein students were asked to develop grammars based on given style briefs. Results gained
Nucleation of the recrystallized grain structure is very sluggish in this material, but growth rates are rapid, giving rise to a coarse microstructure.
Natural magic informs every function of our bodies, our life span and the way we perceive.
Chaplin A Dogs Life (2:27)
A short fiction film I shot on super 8mm for a film class. The story is a tad brief in places, I had light meter problems at one point and some of the footage didn't turn out, so I had to rewrite some things. This is a modern day production in the slilent film genre.
A Night in the Show (1915)
A very old short silent film starring Charlie Chaplin. No music accompagniment.
DW GRIFFITH AS IT IS IN LIFE 1910 SILENT MARY PICKFORD 1911
Despite the overwhelming importance of D.W. Griffith to the development of cinema art; his name, his work and the work of those who helped him create his moving pictures have become a generally unknown commodity amongst the American public. (12:18)
In this short cartoon clip from "WordWorld", the WordFriends use the letters R, U, and G, to build the word "rug." After the word is built, it transforms into a rug made of the letters used. (:52)
English Composition Thesis
This is a very brief description of the thesis statement and its importance. Video discusses how important it is to put the thesis or position of your paper in the first paragraph. Your thesis statement should say the focus of the paper as succinctly and clearly as possible. It should also tell your reader the main point you are trying to make. The rest of the paper supports the thesis statement.
Plants that Make Spores
There are ten basic divisions in the Plantae kingdom, and only 5 that are spore bearing. Spores are special cells used in asexual reproduction. Learn about the plants that make cells in this short clip. Examples and photos are provide for the mosses, liverworts, horsetails and ferns. (2:34)
9.322J Genetic Neurobiology (MIT)
This course deals with the specific functions of neurons, the interactions of neurons in development, and the organization of neuronal ensembles to produce behavior. Topics covered include the analysis of mutations, and molecular analysis of the genes required for nervous system function. In particular, this course focuses on research work done with nematodes, fruit flies, mice, and humans.
8.02X Physics II: Electricity & Magnetism with an Experimental Focus (MIT)
This course is an introduction to electromagnetism and electrostatics. Topics include: electric charge, Coulomb's law, electric structure of matter, conductors and dielectrics, concepts of electrostatic field and potential, electrostatic energy, electric currents, magnetic fields, Ampere's law, magnetic materials, time-varying fields, Faraday's law of induction, basic electric circuits, electromagnetic waves, and Maxwell's equations. The course has an experimental focus, and includes several exp
Jonas Salk and the Polio Vaccine
The polio virus attacks certain types of nerve cells and for hundreds of years it killed and crippled - especially children. By 1952 Dr. Salk and his research team had developed a killed virus vaccine against polio. Learn how a nationwide mobilization led by Jonas Salk eradicated polio from American society in this short video clip. Run time 0:55.
How to Measure Circumference
The two minute video is about circumference. This video explains that one way to seperate circles is by their circumference, different size circles have differecnt size circumference. Circumference is the distance around a circle. The ratio of the circumference of a diameter is pi= c/d. The video moves slowly and students should be able to follow it after the terms have been explained and practice.

21A.110 Anthropological Theory (MIT)
This course introduces students to some of the major social theories and debates that inspire and inform anthropological analysis. Over the course of the semester, we will investigate a range of theoretical propositions concerning such topics as agency, structure, subjectivity, history, social change, power, culture, and the politics of representation. Ultimately, all theories can be read as statements about human beings and the worlds they create and inhabit. We will approach each theoretical p
16.89J Space Systems Engineering (MIT)
In 16.89 / ESD.352 the students will first be asked to understand the key challenges in designing ground and space telescopes, the stakeholder structure and value flows, and the particular pros and cons of the proposed project. The first half of the class will concentrate on performing a thorough architectural analysis of the key astrophysical, engineering, human, budgetary and broader policy issues that are involved in this decision. This will require the students to carry out a qualitative and
Quartz crystal microbalance/heat conduction calorimetry (QCM/HCC), a new technology capable of isoth
A new technology called the quartz crystal microbalance/heat conduction calorimeter (QCM/HCC) capable of simultaneous, high sensitivity mass change and heat flow measurements under isothermal conditions, was developed. The QCM/HCC consists of two highly sensitive sensors. A quartz crystal microbalance measures mass changes on its surface (to Â±0.25ng/cm2), while a thermopile positioned between the WCM and a heat sink measures heat flows (to Â±50nW) to and from the surface of the QCM. In the
Writing the Equation of a Line
Instructor uses white board and marker to teach students how to write the equation of a line in slope-intercept form using a table of ordered pairs.
ARMY WAR GAME SIMULATION (AWAS) system - Utilising architectural knowledge in virtual environments
This research briefly examines the importance of collaborative design in developing a multi-user, multi-tiered, networked and real-time information base system. Aspects such as navigation, interaction, communication, movements (objects or virtual camera), control, level of details, spatial design and virtual spaces will be explained to show their importance in the development of virtual world. This paper will further explore the aspects of collaborative design in the context of Army War Game Sim
